Orval Trappist Ale

Belgian Trappist Ale

Pours an orange-amber with a frothy head. Aromas of wild Brettanomyces yeast, earthy hops, and tropical fruit. Medium-bodied with crisp carbonation. Flavors of sweet ripe fruit, peppery spice, wild yeast, and earthy hops. Dry, crisp finish.

Fermented with Belgain Ale yeast and two strains of wild Brettanomyces yeast.

Brewed in an authentic Belgian Trappist Monastery.

    Orval is great, but what was once mysterious Brett flavors is now common in many American craft beers.
