Brasserie d’Orval Orval



Brasserie d’Orval in Villers-devant-Orval, Luxembourg, Belgium 🇧🇪

Belgian Style Regular
ABV: 6.2% IBU: 36 Ticks: 151
Orval beer is a high fermentation beer. The ageing process adds a fruity note, which strikes a subtle balance between the beer’s full-bodied yet complex flavour and bitterness. The beer was first brewed in 1931 and owes its unparalleled taste to the quality of the water, the hops and the yeast used. The brewery has selected very aromatic and unique hop varieties, which hark back to the first brewmaster of Orval, who hailed from Bavaria. The beer’s aromas are very pronounced while maintaining the right level of bitterness thanks to the English method of dry hopping. The various stages of fermentation – combined fermentation with the original yeast and with wild yeast, followed by fermentation in the bottle – mean the beer must age for some time and requires numerous quality controls.

03/2020 gebrouwen. Stukje zuurder en droger dan de vorige keer. Misschien nog wat jong? Geen idee hoe deze verouderd eigenlijk.

Appearance - 9 | Aroma - 8.5 | Flavor - 8.5 | Texture - 9 | Overall - 8.5

Colour is slightly hazy copper-orange, large rocky white head, a lot of lacing. Malty bready nose, some barnyard, aroma full of honey, hay, floral hops, hint of citrus. Dry but mild medium bitter taste, light sweetness, grassy and earthy notes. Lively carbonation, medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Smooth dry finish, spicy notes. Probably one of the best beers around.
