My little archive of beer tastings. My real reviews are moving to Beer Citizen, which I hope you can try out, add some reviews of your own, and let me know what you think. Feel free to contact me on twitter, too.
See 'em all!
Sierra Nevada / Abbey of New Clairvaux Ovila Saison:
This is much better than the Ovila dubbel was, in my opinion. Not the most exciting saison ever, but a pretty good one nonetheless. Straw, clove, and pepper are the things I noticed most in this one. It’s a nice balanced yeastiness… not too funky, not too estery, but a smidgen of both. A little light fruit, but not a particularly obvious fruit push in any direction. I’m not blown away by either beer in this series yet, but I do look forward to trying the rest. Seeing Sierra working on belgian-inspired beers like this is an pretty exciting thing to follow.
