375ml bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours an essentially clear, amberesque body with a two-finger-high cap of near white foam.
Smell: Lightly toasted bread, toasted grains with a layer of sweet-scented candied glaze. Faint flash of sourishness. Banana, aromatic orange, coriander, pepper.
Taste: Sweet caramel, toffee in the foreground atop the malted wheat. A little, light banana. Candied orange (a bit tangy) dusted with a little pepper, a little coriander. Some stern florals ahead of a stronger, bitterish orange oil presence. Still remains rather candyish, sweetish on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation, fighting back some stickiness.
Overall: Don't get me wrong, I am still on-board for this whole Ovila deal, but I WAAAY preferred the no-thrills Ovila Saison over this new, "now with more stuff!" version.
Serving type: bottle
