Brasserie d'Orval / Orval 6.2% - 330ml Bottle
Whatâ€™s special about Orvalâ€™s beer is that hops are added at two different stages of the production process. First, in the brewing room, a large quantity of very fine hops are added â€“ this produces the famous bitter taste and is the reason why the beer keeps for a longer period of time. Later, in the storage cellars, hops are once again added. This is the so-called British â€œdry hopping,â€ which produces the delightful aroma that completely enraptures even the most carefully forewarned taster.
In the tasting room, Orvalâ€™s beer and cheese make a really good pair: the unique shape of the bottle and the glass, the design of the label, the coasters and other publicity materials â€“ itâ€™s all a legacy from the early 1930â€™s.
