COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our answer to the Belgian ędevilĽ 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: Thereís 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 isnít 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 doesnít feel that lively on the palate. Or maybe itís not much of a letdown - thereís no annoying astringency some in the style feature, either. It slides down the tongue without any friction: in laymanís terms, itís every bit as dangerously drinkable as the best in the style. O: Iím 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 itís 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. Itís not quite Duvel, but I reckon itís as good as a canned BSPA can get.

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

Can via Der Sloth! Brighter yellow with a touch of haze. Bright white head with intense lacing. Nose of light yeast and some hay. Mostly smooth yeast with a late twang. Enveloped grains are barely discernable. Abrupt finish. Halfway to greatness.
