Ovila – A Successful Collaboration

So, Sierra Nevada Brewery makes another successful beer and it’s sooo delicious!  The Ovila Dubbel is a collaboration beer between Sierra Nevada and the monks at the Abbey of New Clairvaux.  My husband popped open a bottle of this tonight to share with my brother and sister-in-law and we all had a different opinion of what we tasted.    I said anise, but other comments were apple, fruit, nuts, liquor and a comparison to a regular brown ale.  One thing we did agree on is it has a rich, smooth taste and we’d have it again!  Cheers!
