Beer of the Week


Behold! The beer of the week.

From the website: Our Ovila® Abbey Ales series is a collaboration with the monks of the Abbey of New Clairvaux in Vina, CA. Each beer is a modern twist on a traditional Belgian-style abbey ale—monastic inspiration and American innovation. These rotating Ovila Abbey Ales highlight, when possible, local ingredients grown and harvested by the monks on their nearly 600-acre working farm.


The plums are just barely detectable but are delicious none the less. Add this to my list of beers I freaking love right after pretty much any German beer.

German beer is my favorite.

This beer is darker than last weeks and has more of a bite. Coming in at 10.2% alcohol within each brown tinted bottle a few of these and light weights such as myself are warm and buzzed.

One is enough for me though. I’m here for taste not so much to get drunk.

This weeks beer leaves less of a nasty after taste than last weeks too. 

Nobody likes those pesky after tastes.

It’s definitely bitter but not mouth puckeringly so.

One thing I dislike is the thickness of the bottle. Consrvation-wise it seems irresponsible.

Other than that, very tasty beer indeed.
