Sierra Nevada Ovila Abbey Saison with Mandarin Oranges and Peppercorns (7.5% ABV / 24 IBUs): Made in collaboration with the Abbey of New Clairvaux (the monks at the Abbey make wine but do not brew beer), Ovila Saison includes mandarin oranges that were locally grown, including a portion grown on the grounds of the Abbey.  This beer pours a hazy copper-gold color with off-white foam sustained by active bubbling.  Ovila Saison has an aroma of oranges, earthy hay/straw, and herbs.  The beer is medium-bodied with light to moderate carbonation on the tongue.  Ovila Saison has delicious and refreshing flavors of sweet mandarin oranges, malt, earthy hay/straw, herbs, and pepper.  The beer has a great fruit and spice finish.  Close your eyes, drink this outstanding beer, and be instantly transported to a Belgian farm on a warm summer day.
