750ml bottle split between two large snifters. Poured vigorously, so any sediment is probably mixed in.

Pours very cloudy, golden, with a big white head. Lots of carbonation. Smell is yeasty, grassy, slightly spicy, hint of lemon.

Taste is surprisingly crisp, lemony, a bit hoppy/lemony, Very yeasty, bready.

Mouthfeel is dry and light. Overall, this is a very solid beer, though not spectacular.

One if my favorite beers. Inexpensive at Costco compared to other Belgium style ales. Excellent deep gold color. Easy pour. Flavorful taste, slight hops, lots of caramel malt sweetness. Flavor lasts on the pallet as well. I have had the other Ovila's and they are good, but this beer has everything I am looking for. Very strong alcohol, and you feel it after one of the large bottles.
