COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ovni Ale has a substantial and complex malt profile with flavors of toffee and caramel and a restrained hop bitterness. The beer is very smooth and deceptive at 7.1% ABV. Brewed in the spring to get you through the summer. The high amount of carbonation keeps this beer light on the palette and refreshing.

Smells very malty, a little hoptty. Caramel flavors. Very sweet beer. I struggled to drink my glass of this, and I was real thirsty at the time. Not one I would buy again.

Smells sweet and hoppy-- smells Belgian. Very sweet, Belgian tart, and smooth. Lingering sweetness, with grassy, honey, and citrus flavors.

Serving glass: Poured from bomber into Tulip. Appearance: Dark reddish amber with moderate cream colored head and minor lacing. Aroma: Sweet toasted malts, caramel, cherry and light spice. Taste: Very rich toasted flavor with some notes of caramel, clove, light spicy hops and a very mild earthiness. Palate: Moderate carbonation, medium body, barely semi-dry finish. Overall: Nice, heavily toasted, Biere de Garde. My only gripe is that it should be a little drier. I originally had this a little over a year ago when it was several months old. That beer must have aged too swiftly because it was very sour. (I have seen other reviews note this). Strange thing though - I actually enjoyed that sour beer a little more than this true-to-style fresh one.

500ml bottle split. Deep red-brown color. Oily, patchy head. Very sweet aroma. Lots of toffee and caramel flavors, as advertised. Some spicy hops balance it out. Sort of dances around the style, but doesn’t really have that rich doughiness you’d find in a French or Belgian example. A pretty good beer nonetheless, it grows on me with each sip. The alcohol never dominates, and helps round out the beer. Pretty good.

bomber to snifter. Pour is dark copper with a thin head. Taste is malt spice and mild hops. Palate feels thin fizzy and finishes dry. Overall very drinkable beer which I think will be great in the garage when its seventy degrees outside.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Tap. Clear red gold pour, thin white head. Smells and tastes like a malt bomb. Taste includes some caramel. High ABV is well hidden.

DalzAle (1906) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Bottle (Thanks for hooking me up Skyview!) Clear amber pour, medium carbonation with strong caramel and herbal aroma. Flavor was initially caramel, earthy malt, citrus and finished with a little bit of sour apple and dryness on the finish. Not bad, but not great. I know this bottle has a little age on it, but I still liked it and will definitely be looking for this when it is released again
