COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The monks at the Abbey of New Clairvaux hold themselves to a higher standard. So when they challenged us to create a beer that transcends all others, our brewers blended Old World tradition with modern-day mastery to deliver the perfect expression of Belgian witbier worthy of a goblet but comfortable in a pint.

Bottle. Pours pale pale yella, hazy with a little bit o white head. Sweet wonderful belgian tripel/saison yeast. It doesnt have a classic witbeer aroma. Tart, crisp, soft wheaty, little chalky. Finish is similar with faint spice from the yeast. The usually orange peel and coriander isnt so evident, but it's really nice either way. Will try to find more from this Ovila series.

Draft pours hazy golden orange with a lasting white head. Aroma is Belgian, witty, orange, coriander. Blue Moon this isn't, it's quite legit and true to what the style should be. Smooth slightly sweet flavor citrus, spice, earthy Belgian yeast. Medium light, well carbonated. Nice for the style.

From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Pours hazy straw yellow with white head that faded rather quickly. Aroma of citrus and yeast with some sour notes; the citrus carries through to a zesty & spicy palate

Poured into an Ovila goblet, of course. :) Hay, barnyard and yeasty aromas from a clear pale yellow body with an effervescent, foamy white head that dies down fairly quickly. Hay and cracker malt flavors along with a nice very slightly sour Belgian yeast flavor. There's a nice subtle earthy bitterness that balances out the light malt sweetness. A little corn flavor comes out in the follow through along with a bit of lemon. Body is thin yet slightly creamy at the same time. Finishes light and dry with a lasting toasted malt and yeast flavor. Sort of a cross between a witbier and a Saison. Refreshing and delicious.

ComradeK (1313) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2018
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale gold, with a large white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves a little lacing. Fragrant coriander and orange peel mix with spiced dough in the aroma. Coriander spice up front mixes with fresh citrus leading into spiced dough and orange peel in the mid-palate. Finishes crisp and spicy. Very pleasant.

hawthorne00 (4351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2018
Bottle. Hazy yellow with white head. 3+ Crackery dough, oranges, coriander, cloves, pepper. Light, soft texture with highish carbonation. Yeasty with only a little citrus, little bitterness and appropriate finishing spices. Refreshing. No fancy tricks that pretend to be an ordinary wit; this is just a good one.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2018 As usually, great Belgian style beer from Sierra Nevada. Slightly hazy , yellow color. Medium sized, white head. Orange, spices, Belgian yeasts in aroma . Not too sweet or over-spiced.

Aggiebob (1563) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 5, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 Bottle. It poured a pale straw yellow color with a frothy white head that was maintained by strong carbonation bubbles. The aroma is pale malt, Belgian spices - coriander and clove, and some orange zest. The mouth feel is clean and light. Very nice Abbey ale.
