3.33/5 rDev -4.9%
Nice red and brown color, some ruby edges to it, soft off white head, only about 3/8" in depth.
Aroma was a nutty maltiness, almost like a red ale, but then it had a very faint Belgian aroma, super mild banana to it, dang, why can't hefe producers makes them something a little more restrained yeastwise like this is.
Very mild flavor profile. Its there. It still shares some characteristics flavorwise comparable to a red ale. But a belgian red with belgian yeast. Cereal grains. No hops, but a weird bitter bite to it, unwelcome in a low abv mild beer like this. Very bready cereal type stuff going on, even if the thickness and viscosity still remains in session country.
A little dark fruit aspect in the mouthfeel. Some spice accoutrement that isn't welcome. Dark candy additions. Complex, yet mild, yet not mild enough. I don't see this beer being made again. I'd frankly prefer the Ovila Dubbel to this any day.
