COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our answer to the Belgian «devil» beers (i.e. Lucifer, Duvel, etc.). Both rich and dry, this beer is all too easy to consume in large quantities. Hopped with Styrian Goldings.

Note: Name changed from Ozzy to Beazly.

12 oz can into a pint glass. A: Pours a mildly hazy golden color. The head is a rocky three finger white shade. It really has the texture I look for in the style, but perhaps not the retention. A decent amount of splotchy lacing is left on the glass. S: There’s a definite apple presence here, to the point where it seems like a dry cider at times. Other noteable aspects include bubblegum, phenols, earthy hops, and some subtle spicing. Decently complex, a lot more than I expected from a canned BSPA. T: It opens with both a pleasant touch of phenol and distinct breadiness. Touches of spice and fruit esters appear mainly near the cidery, apple-laden finish, though it should be said there isn’t a significant presence of Belgian yeast here. A faint hoppy bite sometimes appears. Perhaps a little sweet, as well, but certainly refreshing. M: This is where the lack of bottle conditioning lets it down. The back end is a bit syrupy, and it doesn’t feel that lively on the palate. Or maybe it’s not much of a letdown - there’s no annoying astringency some in the style feature, either. It slides down the tongue without any friction: in layman’s terms, it’s every bit as dangerously drinkable as the best in the style. O: I’m always skeptical of any Belgian-style ale in a can - they always seem syrupy and strange. This, however, really does a deft job of skating around the fact that it’s not bottle conditioned by successfully pulling off a sweeter, more cidery bend. Even better, it keeps the epic drinkability I look for from the style. It’s not quite Duvel, but I reckon it’s as good as a canned BSPA can get.

12 ounce can. Bright brassy gold color topped by a moderate rocky white head. Yeasty, fruity malt nose redolent of lemon peel. Sweet lemony malt flavor with hints of peppercorns and more yeast. Dry finish is sticky and cloying. Good interpretation of Duvel, though not quite at that level.

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
Pale golden pour. The nose is lightly yeasty and spicy. A very clean dry pale malt character. There’s a touch of spice and some nice fresh spiciness as well. Fresh and lightly yeasty. Tasty Belgian strong.

Tayeth (485) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2015
Geruch ist schwach und geht in Richtung Weizen, auch vom Geschmack her fast wie Weizenbier. Leicht süßlich, aber nicht so fruchtig, im Abgang fast ein bisschen säuerlich.

12 oz can as Ozzy poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Bought in late October, sat in my fridge since then. Mostly clear straw yellow with tiny bits of floating sediment, about a finger of off-white head. Aromas of herbs, spice, citrus fruit and peel. Tastes of herbs, spice, lemon citrus, some wheat, yeast, some alcohol. Medium-light body with a dry and slightly warm finish.

Can into tulip. Dark golden w thick white head. Grassy yeasty aroma. Taste is well balanced combo of initial hop bitterness w a slightly sweet malt rounding it out and making this very drinkable. Aftertaste is almost nutty? Good solid easy drinking but flavorful beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled from Dads beer. Described as their answer to Duvel...wee, score! It tastes like Duvel but slightly more yeasty and zingy. Well done.
