Finally, I am reviewing another beer! I know yall missed this article so I am bringing it back. This one is a pretty good one too! This beer was probably the most enjoyable beer that I have drank for these reviews. Well here it is, the name is Orval. It is a true Trappist beer made by the Cistercian monks of Orval in Belgium. If you would like to go to the oficial site, here is a link.
This is a reddish/light brown beer that made an awesome, huge head while pouring. It looked like I had made a beer float! The fragrance was a strong but sweet. It made my mouth water just thinking about it. The first taste was a little bitter but surprisingly it had a real smooth finish. It is hard to explain but usually when the beer is bitter I have a hard time drinking it but this one went down real well. It has a 6.2% alcohol content so it is not one of the stronger Belgian beers. So here we go with the ratings.
Aroma; This had a great aroma. This beer was one of those where the smell reflected the taste very close. Appearance What a great looking beer! I was ready to drink this beer as soon as I poured it. I usually wait for the foam to flatten just a little but I didn't waste any time drinking this one. Flavor The flavor of this beer was just as pleasing as the look and smell. Yes it did have a slight bitter start but it did not detract from the flavor, it only added to it. Palate What a finish, smooth with a taste of barley malt and that bitterness came from the hops.
This is the first beer review where I am going to strongly encourage you to try this one. I guarantee you will not regret it. This will definitely be a beer that I will keep on hand. As always drink responsibly and don't drink and ride.
