Ridiculous pour into my Rodenbach Grand Cru tulip. Absurdly creamy meringue head slathered in angular clumps. Hazy amber body with warm hues. Spectacular.
Semi-spicy yeasty aroma with a mild double orange liqueur note. Earthy and a little musty. Complex and inviting.
Spicy yeast, black pepper, grapefruit pith, oyster crackers, some sea saltiness... this is effing marvelous. Nice citrus element from the dry-hopping. Super dry semi-bitter finish. Getting a smudge of unripe banana in that yeast strain. Very round character. I'm seriously impressed. My only complaint: a bit too sweet up front.
Great chewy bubble all throughout. Spritzy, dry, medium-bodied, everything I could ask for in this beer.
This is a tremendous Belgian Pale. I love this. Man, I gotta have another Orval sometime soon. Not my favorite style, but now I'm not sure which is my favorite example.
