Ovila Abbey Quad with plums is heady with aromas of caramel, rich malt, and dark fruit-balanced by the spiciness and delicate fruity notes of a traditional Belgian yeast. This beer features sugar plums grown on the grounds of the Abbey, and harvested by the monks in Vina. We hope you enjoy this collaboration ale.

Sampled out of a small bomber. Pours deep and dark with a foamy head. Quality brew that has low carbonation and you can taste the fruit deep in it. Aged really nicely.

HonusWagner (1793) - Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Lightly tart fruity notes in the front, but mostly sweet caramel, with breadiness and a spicy note in the mid palate. Surprisingly dry. A bit of a winelike nose, but the taste is full on quad. Pretty good beer.

Pours a clear coppery amber with white head and lacing. Hoppy bitter aromas, hints of resin and a caramel finish. Creamy mouth feel, full of resin and bitter hoppy notes. An okay ale.

Tastes great. A little smokey. Nice and strong with a boozy aftertaste. Somewhat caramelly and sweet. Brings a good buzz.

drpimento (2536) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2014
This is a very rich, succulent beer. Appearance is ok w / a modest tan head , almost opaque, but clear garnet. Aroma is vinous yet malty& alluring. Flavor is ~ nose with enough tang & bitter to balance. Excellent body. Ditto finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aurelius (4750) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2014
Great caged cork, Belgian longneck bottle. Great label. Clear, deep bottle-brown beer. Big tan head that fades to a thin carpet. High appearance marks. Earthy, sweet, fruity, dark complex sugars in the aroma. Very smooth mouthfeel. Caramel and molasses on the frontend, then goes spicy and yeasty. Chewy, lots of complexity. Leathery towards the end, with a satisfying finish. Warming. Nice work. Market Square Liquors.

jbruner (3043) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a hazy copper brown with minimal bubbly head. Aroma is big on the dark fruits, both from the addition and the yeasty esters. Taste follows, nice malty balance and a bit of a boozy burn. Very nice, but I think I may like the original better.
