Other Information

In contrast to all the others, 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. If you love Belgian, you must have tried this….

    As a Belgian beer enthusiast, I had sampled Orval in Bruges once before. I quickly realised it is a quality beer, a must have if you appreciate the Belgian. Deep in flavour and smooth, if you have never tried, at least try once before you can say you can even proclaim to be a Belgian connoisseur.

  2. Donald Koole

    First tried this whilst traveling through Belgium many years ago and I’ve stuck with it ever since. It’s an unpretentious example of a quality beer – very drinkable and highly enjoyable.

  3. SB

    This has got to be one of the best beers of any category. Super tasty finish, very smooth and rich and a great balance. As another review says, this is a “must have” on the Belgian beer experience.

  4. Faiers

    As far as I am concerned this is THE BEST Belgian beer. If you can use the ‘Orval’ glass it helps pouring and avoids too much head.

    Please get it back in stock soon.

  5. Bill Yates

    One of the best Belgian beers there is. Smooth and complex, it strikes a perfect balance between lightness on the palate and richness of flavour. Works well either with food or on its own.

  6. Pukka P

    Magnificent, a rapier to the other Trappist broadswords.

  7. Mark Gorman

    This won’t be to everyone’s taste. A complex flavour, the dominant tone, I can’t quite put my finger on. A smooth finish and worth trying.

  8. Paul C

    A smooth flavoursome beer with, for me, a floral aftertaste.

  9. Kris

    My favourite of the Belgian trappists

  10. Kevin Matthias

    Young one (bottled Feb 21) so yet to attain maximum complexity but still a mighty mouth full. Hops more to the fore. Super.

  11. Jean Paul

    Being Belgian and having been many times to the Orval monastery to taste and purchase this divine nectar I am extremely pleased that it is available to buy through Beers of Europe.
    Their delivery system is second to none and the Orval price very competitive, go for it, you will not regret it!

  12. Michael Horsley

    A typically flavourful Belgian beer, I’d drink this again

  13. Robbie Almond

    This beer is really distinctive and has a unique character. Highly recommended if you’re into your Belgian beers or fancy something a little bit different.

  14. Chris Meechan

    One of the all time classic Belgian ales. Dry, fruity, zesty and sweet.

  15. Bernard Hawcroft

    One of the great beers of the world. Enough said.

  16. Luke Manley

    A very distinctive and lovely beer.

  17. Steve Bruce

    This is an odd one for me to review. It is spicy, floral, dry, bitter all at the same time. Very lively. The 3 star rating is my personal opinion coming from someone who prefers dark strong beer. I will age one in my collection and try it again to see how much it changes, its not a bad beer but not in my favourite list, not yet anyway.

  18. Xavier Crepin

    A nice light beer, with a distinctive clover after taste
