4.05/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Very nice packaging (on bottles), very sweet story and all, but let's see how the beer is.

Appearance: hazy amber body with a fine beige head. Head had very good retention.

Smell: subtle nutty and yeasty aroma with faint hints of fruit and vague spices.

Taste: The 1st sip immediately reminded me of Westmalle dubbel, but this past quickly as the Ovila doesn't have quite same flavor profile ... nor the complexity. Fruity and floral, but not overly so, with a modicum of spices that sit in the background rather coming to the fore. Nice semi-dry and fruity finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body; well-chosen medium-high carbonation.

Overall: A very good Belgian beer that can be said to have no flaws yet it is not up to the best. With actual monks and Sierra Nevada involved I had high hopes that were not quite met.

Serving type: growler
