Tasting Note: Orval is a Belgian Trappist ale with a complex and distinguished taste. It pours a hazy copper colour with a frothy white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is distinct with notes of citrus, earthy hops and a hint of spice.
Ratebeer Review: 99/100
Producer: Orval is a Belgian Trappist brewery, founded in 1931. The brewery is located in Villers-devant-Orval, in the province of Luxembourg, Belgium, and is known for producing a unique and iconic beer that has become a classic in the world of Belgian beer.
Orval Brewery's approach to brewing is rooted in tradition, quality, and innovation. The brewery is one of thirteen Trappist breweries in the world, meaning that the beer is brewed by monks or under their supervision, and the profits from the brewery go towards supporting the monastery and charitable causes.
The brewery produces only one beer, Orval, a Belgian pale ale that is known for its complex and fruity flavor profile. The beer is brewed with a unique strain of yeast that gives it a distinct aroma and flavor, with notes of dried fruit, citrus, and spice. The beer is also dry-hopped, which adds a subtle hop bitterness and floral aroma to the beer.
