12oz can. Clear gold with a finger of fizzy white head that leaves patches swathes of lacing behind. The aroma is mix of sweetness, fruit and spice. This is quite zippy in the nose. The taste is similar. Bready sugars, fruit (getting a good bit of tart apple) and spicy throughout. The finish is especially dry and spicy. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a sharp and lively feel to the carbonation that pops in the mouth. There is a little alcohol here. I’ve always thought that Ozzy was a decent beer but I’m happy to see that you can now enjoy it in a 12oz portion instead of having to commit to a 750ml bottle. This translated to the canned packaging well.

Can poured into stemless wine glass. Golden color , very clear and 2 finger white head subsides to a nice ring of white with persistent lace. Alcohol legs apparent.
Spicy yeast aroma is mouthwatering, with candi -sugar and alcohol .
Taste follows smell with big sweetness upfront / candi sugar and spice present. Very malt forward. Some dryness does come in middle with noticeable alchohol burn to end .
M- medium body with nice carbonation bite.
Overall this is an interesting beer but it's a little too sweet for me. I agree with another BA that the ABV seems higher than the label indicates

Poured into a Bruery tulip glass. Hazy golden body covered by a layer of white foam that dissipates quickly to a ring, with a little lacing on the glass. Not as much retention as I'd expect from a Belgian devil style beer.

Aroma of sweet light malt, coriander spice, grassy hops.

Husky Belgian yeast flavor with a little metal, quite a bit of coriander, some tropical/pear fruit and toffee, good amount of grassy hops. Good balance between sweetness and hop bitterness.

Body is medium and carbonation is fizzy, for a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Has a little alcohol burn on the tongue.

A flavorful, complex devil beer that is a delight to drink. Seems the ABV is a bit higher than advertised. The alcohol, strong spice, and good amount of hops makes this a strong ale that takes the palate for a serious, tasty ride.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

a: Chill hazed golden straw color; poured with a short lived fizzy head.

s: Soft candi-sugar, banana and other fruit phenols, and hint of grassy hops.

t: Mirrors the smell for the most part only more so, if that makes sense. Softly sweet candi-sugar, plenty of fruity phenols, leafy hops and clove at the finish.

m: Silky smooth and gently carbonated.

o: Deliciously simple and a bargain to boot. A case purchase is imminent for sure. I wonder if a little something was lost without the bottle conditioning? I need to buy a bottle some time to find out.
