ABV: 6.2%

In contrast to all the other Trappist breweries, the Orval Trappist brewery makes only one beer for the general public. It has an intensely aromatic and dry character. Between the first and second fermentations there is also an additional dry-hopping process. Through this the beer acquires its pronounced hoppy aroma and extra dry taste.

  1. 3 Star Review Cheers

    From Belgium (what a guess) is called ORVAL. Made from malted barely, is at 6.2% alc.
    Poured into glass and headed up a lot. Took three goes to empty the bottle!
    Very tall head, aroma was mild and few bubbles.
    First taste was again creamy natured, and a bit familiar with others.
    Rated, 6 (was hoping for more)
    Anyway, cheers

  2. 5 Star Review A world class beer - not what you'd expect from a Trappist Brewery

    This beer really is not what you'd expect from a Trappist brewery. After tasting beers from Chimay, Westmalle, La Trappe...etc. A bit of tart funk on the nose with hints of barnyard from that brett? It has such a soft mouth feel, almost silky smooth. Though, it is very well balanced and has nice bitter fruity spicy notes. Has been my favourite Trappist beer for some time. If only it was more available!

  3. 3 Star Review I don't know what the fuss is about

    Has a herb like aroma with a dry spicy finish, nice beer but not amazing -- I did get in trouble on untappd as other users wanted my head for that comment LOL

  4. 5 Star Review As good as it gets

    The iconic dry Trappist Ale which inspires so many tributes and clones, it is dry hopped and fermented with Brettanomyces in addition to Saccharomyces. Dry with amazing complexity from the Brett which develops over time, so this one is definitely worth a place in the cellar to try as time goes by. A truly great beer.

  5. 3 Star Review Great(3.5*)

    Quality yeast esters on the nose. Dense head with banana and fig flavours.

  6. 2 Star Review Ok

    I've heard that Orval can vary a lot from bottle to bottle, I found the one I had to be just a tad disappointing. Not the best Belgian ale I've had.

  7. 5 Star Review highly rated

    "About 20 years ago, before the beginning of Australian Craft beer( OK there was Coopers), I would get beer from Germany, Great Britain, & of course ,Belgium.
    Being a novice, those days, I would call Orval, ""awful""
    How times have changed.! One of the tastiest beers of all time.
    A shame that it is a bit expensive. But is one to savour
    This one puts hair on your chest.."
