2011 vintage

a - poured a one finger thick off-white head into a snifter that left good lacing and sheeting throughout. the body was a bright, pale golden color.
s - bready with honey aromas as well. apples and some floral aromas come through as well.
t - same as above with the fruitiness more pronounced. the hops really shine through here too.
m - creamy, slick and coating.
o - excellent beer and stands up to the classics in this style.

750ml bottle (thx to johnmichaelsen) poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, even with care, it was 95% foamy white head. After allowing it to settle and working a few, I had a glass of beer. Ozzy Ale is clear, spritzy gold, the white head fluffy, long lasting, leaving rocky chunks of foamy laces.

Smell is great, pear and a bit of bubblegum, with some minty hops.

Taste is very nice - soft, fruity sweetness, herbal hop snap, very clean and balanced. I'm not a fan of Duvel and other clones, as they're normally to bland and dry for my taste. This one has a nice estery flavor that provides depth without compromising the lightness, and is probably my favorite example of the style.

Mouthfeel is on the dry, crisp side, but there a bit of softness to it that I enjoy.

Drinkability is quite good, a very nice blonde. The went great with burritos, and stood strongly on it own as well.

Beautiful golden color. Inch of foam. I'm not a beer connoisseur/fanatic but i do like beer.

Anyway, pours a pale gold gold golden color, really nice looking. Rather foamy, idk if that is good or bad, but it is a thing at least.

I'm terrible with description of smells, but to me this beer smells very nice. You know how some beers, even freshly poured, smell like last week's frat party's floor? This one is NOT like that. Fresh and grassy, just a nice pleasant smell.

Taste is slightly sharp, mildly hoppy, very smooth, and goes down very easy. sweet notes, but not unpleasantly sweet. even burping it up tastes good the second time.

Mouthfeel? i didn't even know this was a thing, for describing beer. I'll abstain on that one. Feels like beer.

overall, I am buying shitloads of this one. my new favorite. Also, it is now available in cans!

Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue X:

Nice, a Devil Beer! No need to tempt us--we won't be looking for a job at Piggly Wiggly either.

Stunningly clear, pale golden color, massive crown of head, which is a trademark for most devil beers. Seriously, the head retention is out of this world. Lovely aroma of dusty yeast, oily hops; dry, doughy, biscuity malt, lilac and other wildflowers, ripe apricots and a faint peppercorn from the alcohol. Super smooth with a lush, crisp backend, medium bodied. A beautiful hop character is thrown at the palate, bitter and oily and melding well with the medicinal phenols that bring a little roughness to the table. Slight fruitiness of pear and apricot, more orchard roundness rather than just sweetness. Alcohol is mild yet still has a slight sting to let you know its strength. Finishes dry with a lingering doughy malt and a spicy hop, phenol and alcohol trio.

Uh, is there any way to sublet our souls to be able to drink this beer on a regular basis? Sure, it ranks very well within the "Devil Beer" realm, but it comes across more like a Belgian IPA / Devil Beer hybrid, which makes us salivate that much more. Dangerously drinkable. Another glass, please.
