Default Sierra Nevada Ovila video review. Big glass of meh

So I was really hoping that Sierra Nevada would nail this dubbel. Unfortunately it just didnt work for me. It was really grainy and lack almost any dark fruit flavor which to me is a must in a dubbel or quad. Oh well maybe their Saison or Quad will be better. let me know what you guys think

I'll have to watch the video later on this, but I can say, after two bottles, I wasn't blown away by Ovila.

Yeah really a bit of a disappointment. Nothing special. I just felt like they were going to knock it out of the park on this one but who knows, maybe the others will be better.
