"Classic Beer" of the week - ORVAL

The "Classic Beer" of the week.  We try to feature a classic every Friday at our tasting.  Beers that have been around for more than 20 years and are no longer the new kid on the block or the hot new beer.  But worth trying again or maybe even trying for the first time.

Taste it this Friday (Sept 18) from 4-6pm during our Friday Night Beer tasting at Forsyth

Orval Trappist Ale
"The gustative sensations will gain in nuance depending on the age of the beer. Young beer is characterised by a bouquet of fresh hops, with a fruity note and pronounced bitterness, light on the palate and a less firm collar than a beer of six months. The latter will feature a bouquet consisting of a blend of fragrances of yeast and old-fashioned hop. The bitterness is more diffuse and the taste has moved to a slight touch of acidity accompanying yeast and caramel flavours. Served without its sediments, a beer of six months or more, has a particularly bright appearance." -- Orval
