Product Description:

The Brasserie d'Orval is one of only seven breweries in the world officially entitled to call themselves an “Authentic Trappiste Breweries”. The brewery belongs to the monastic community of the Cistercians which restricts production and is this able to pay particular attention to producing beer and cheese of the highest quality. The income from the brewery is used for charitable works and to help maintain the historical monastery.

Orval is carefully brewed from malt, Bavarian Hallertau and Yugoslavian Styrian Goldings hops, yeast and candy sugar and undergoes limited secondary fermentation in the bottle. The aroma and flavour are highly complex and suit the discerning drier palate. To fully appreciate a unique quality beer such as Orval you will need to try this beer several times and make sure you follow the recommended serving temperature and use correct glassware.  

Tasting Notes:

Majestic amber clear colour, with a medium-small light tan-yellow, long lasting head that makes minimal lace on the sides of the chalice. The aroma is highly complex including a grassy straw yeastiness, spicey ginger/corriander, and celery. It's definitely the lightest and driest bodied of all the Trappistes and one for the developed palate. Classy balanced medium bitter aromatic hops and lightly sweet malt, robust young citric spicey gingery flavours and crisp clean bitter dry finish. Can be paired with almost any savoury foods, especially cheese, or anywhere you would use a dry white or a light dry red wine.

Thorogoods Billy Bs Golden Apple Beer

Apple beer stopped being made hundreds of years ago and although many people have tried to imitate Billy B’s no one has succeeded. The flavours are apple sweetness similar to Golden Delicious, apple acidity from Granny Smiths and a rich malty mouth feel plus plenty of alcohol.
