Sunday Sunday Sunday! The Super Bowl was amazing and so was this beer! This beer was a celebration of the monks style of brewing ales. The profits of the limited series of Ovila ales goes to the Santa Maria de Oliva chapter house on the grounds of the Abbey of New Clairvaux. The order of release of Ovila Ales goes as this: Dubel, Saison, Trippel. The saison was a good beer to drink during the Super Bowl. This was certainly a great beer to pair with snacks like carrots, cheese, and pita chips.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. - Ovila Abbey Season - 1pt 6fl oz bottle
Look - Pours golden with a tinge of copper. Slight, foamy head with decent lacing. Hazy, no noticeable carbonation.
Smell - Citrus and dry, almost like a high-quality champagne or cider with heartier overtones. If you pay attention you might smell a hint of strawberry.
Taste - Dry, crisp, and refreshing as hell with a creamy strawberry middle and a slight bitter citrus aftertaste that fades quickly.
Mouthfeel - Quite pleasing, this brew encourages you to drink more.
Overall - This is a great brew, this style isn't typically my personal style, but I would definitely get this brew again.

Poured from champagne bottle into a Duvel glass.
Pours light copper with a good creamy head of white foam. Color moves light to dark, bottom to top. Belgian yeast smell, some sugar notes. Light fruity crisp taste. Subtle orange peel on the close. Light malt and citrus wrapped around.
