    Orval is now available in cans! Is this an April fool's joke or what? Apparently not. Just noticed it on Beermerchants, already it is out of stock and I only bought some Orval when I got the Breakfast Stout and there was nothing showing then about Orval in cans. It should be good given from my experience of drinking a few American craft beers in cans. I like my Trappist ales but don't really like the idea of the Belgians especially the Monks putting their beers in cans. :grimacing:
    Your thoughts please gents?

    Has to be an April Fools joke. Seeing as it's out of stock instantly, so nobody can buy any.

    It's a really badly photoshopped picture as well. Unless they managed to get the writing to be straight on a bent surface.

    I see where you are coming from but somehow I doubt very very much if that day will arrive.

    Cans are only OK if they still have the same shape as the bottle - an absolute classic!

    so you don't like bottle conditioned beers and would prefer sterile beer in cans?

    Better than lager from a can. No need to be snobby about it old chap.

    you've obviously never heard of can-conditioning. I'll forgive you though.

    I prefer zero packaging via air conditioning :astonished:

    Can conditioning...much talked about still just talk in my experience.
    At this rate we'll have discovered the Higgs boson first. No bad thing that.

    yeah, hate to disagree with you Zimbo, but New Belgium have already got that particular large hadron collider up and running!

    Doesn't look like CERN to me...

    Meant to say 'still just talk in the UK and Europe in my experience'. Must have been a typo.:grinning:

    Flush toilets yes and most pubs are kitted out with retro stainless steel urinal troughs as well. All you'll ever need in the world of waste management.

    I thought my jokes were bad but at least I didn't resort to toilet humour :stuck_out_tongue:
