Orval tasting notes
The only beer that Orval Trappist brewery makes for the public. Hazy golden with a huge, solid and lasting white head with some lacing. Bright spicy, fruity aroma with Brett funkiness in the background, and notes of spice, hops, vanilla and herbs. Taste is also complex: slightly sour, with spice and fruit with wet hay earthiness, red berries, dark berries, citrus, alcohol and a bit of toffee caramel at the end. Medium full body with lively carbonation and a refreshing slightly dry finish. Not the classic trappist beer.
