Orval beer, the beer of the Golden Valley

Credit : FTLB-P.Willems

The Belgian poet Emile Verhaeren wrote: “In Belgium, the magistrate has the dignity of a prince, but by Bacchus, it is true that the brewer is king”. And his queen may be Orval beer. Its unique taste is due to the secret yeast, jealously guarded by the monks, and the quality of the water, drawn from the ‘GoldenValley’ (or = gold; val = valley). Brother Dominique discovered this wild yeast in the late 1940s.
