Trappist Tour – Orval na Abbaye Notre-Dame d’Orval

Além de minha visita a Bruxelas e Brugge na Bélgica, fiz uma visita às cidade homônimas às minhas queridas cervejas: Rochefort, Orval e Chimay.
Neste capitulo, vou falar sobre a Orval.

Meus planos iniciais eram de visitar também a abadia de Saint Sixtus, que faz a Westvleteren, mas acho que vocês já leram sobre a minha tentativa frustrada.

Roteiro

Aluguei um carro em Bruxelas e fiz a visita de todas as abadias no mesmo dia. É tranquilo pra fazer tudo em um dia, mesmo porque pelo que pude constatar, não tem muito o que fazer nessas cidades além de visitar o mosteiro/cervejaria/pub.
Todas elas constam em regiões afastadas, quase rurais, então não espere chegar lá por transporte publico facilmente.
Alugue um carro com GPS e seja feliz.

Meu roteiro foi:
1 – De Bruxelas até Rochefort
2 – De Rochefort até Orval
3 – De Orval até Chimay
4 – De Chimay até Bruxelas

Optei por este roteiro principalmente por todas essas cidades ficarem no sul da Bélgica, e com isso fica mais facil de fazer tudo em apenas um dia.

Chegando em Orval

Indo para Orval, já pensei: “Putz… já comecei com o pé esquerdo, queria visitar a Westvleteren e estava fechada, fui até a Rochefort e também estava fechada.
Ahhhh meu amigo… minha sorte estava por vir!

A Orval abre suas portas para visitação apenas 2 dias por ano e adivinha se estava aberta quando eu fui??? ESTAVAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! \o/

Logo quando cheguei na abadia já tive uma surpresa: A beleza dessa abadia é única, lembra um castelo!

In front of Orval Abbaye Bienvenue!

Logo ao chegar lá, ví que era preciso ter se registrado pelo site e eu não tinha feito isso, sendo assim, fui humildemente falar com um dos monges que estavam na entrada e como outros monges que conheci, foi extremamente simpático e me liberou a entrada.
E não foi só isso não, ainda deu um abridor de garrafa personalizado pra cada um e um vale pra tomar cerveja e comer queijo na faixa!!!

Inside Orval BreweryDurante todo o percurso há desenhos explicativos do processo de produção

Estavam com algum problema na linha de envase/rotulagem, então não consegui ver a linha funcionando, mas nos videos abaixo dá pra ter uma ideia:

Após o tour pela linha de montagem, saímos no bar improvisado, onde tínhamos Orval e queijo trapista a vontade!!! \o/

Se você nunca tomou uma Orval, talvez não entenda minha paixão por esta cerveja, que em minha opinião é uma das melhores do mundo.
Ela não se enquadra em um tipo de cerveja, por isso é enquadrada na categoria Speciality Beer.
Ela é refermentada com brettanomyces, o que dá um aroma e sabor muito distintos, além do dry hopping, que não é comum neste lado do mundo.

Logo na saída, eles improvisaram um bazar, onde vendiam as taças, cervejas, queijos e itens de coleção como garrafas maiores, livros, placas e bandejas.

Além disso, tinham vários queijos a venda. O beer chesse deles é o melhor que já comi.



Finalizando com uma servida na temperatura certa, na taça certa, pela pessoa certa!

Sem duvida a Orval é o mosteiro mais bonito que já visitei. A construção antiga tem um ar medieval de castelo e fica num campo vasto, tudo muito bonito que mistura a alta tecnologia dos equipamentos cervejeiros com o ambiente rústico e interiorano do local.

No próximo post, visita à Chimay!page-divider

    Muito bacana, André! Que sorte, hem?! Fiquei com uma pontinha de inveja, hehe… 2 x por ano e vc estava lá! Vai ser sortudo assim lá longe… valeu pelo post!

  2. Meus Parabéns confrade, muito legal sua visita! um show!

  3. bem bacana o texto! tenho duas dúvidas. uma: a visita é gratuita? duas: quem dirigiu o carro que você alugou? a segunda dúvida tem relação ao fato de eu imaginar que após a degustação, você não poderia (de acordo com a lei) conduzir um automóvel.

    abraços fraternos,

  6. Oi Oi!! Vou fazer esse circuito esse ano e gostaria de saber qual a distancia aproximada entre as cidades, tempo de percurso e tal… Quanto ao aluguel do carro, foi tranquilo? Recomenda alguma operadora para tal? Qual o valor aproximado? É tranquilo para estacionar e tudo mais?

    Olá, bem bacana o roteiro trapista.
    Tambem terei que fazer cara de gato, estou voltando para bruxelas pela segunda vez, e nesta tenho em mente fazer o roteiro, mas já consultei a abadia de Westvleteren e estará fechada, a Rochefort você falou que não abre, a Orval só duas vezes por ano (acredito que não terei a mesma sorte que sua pessoa) ou seja, fodeu… só sobrou a chimay do lado Sul de Bruxelas. minha pergunta é, com elas fechadas, vale a pena ir?? assim como a Chimay existe um restaurante/bar próprio deles onde se pode degustar e comprar cerveja. A época que vou é terrivel, 07.08.09 e 10 de janeiro. Ah, assim como Westvleteren, existe um site oficial destas outras Abbaye onde posso consultar os dias e horário de funcionamento?? Miuto bacana a dica de Brugges sobre o 2be, quando fui para Brugges estava fechada (sim, sou tenho muita sorte), espero que esteja aberta na minha volta. Abs e valeu pelas dicas
