Ovila Abbey Dubbel at Rocky's.
It wasn't planned this way, but Steve Thiel says that my signature glass of Ovila Abbey Dubbel was the first poured from a keg in Indiana, and accordingly, the first consumed, because I wasted no time on it. Belgian yeast and American know-how have produced a sublime cross-cultural marriage, and there's little chance in a blind tasting that this ale would not pass as an upper echelon Belgian Abbey ale, if not an actual Trappist.
I've no idea if there's any left. If so, get over to Rocky's and taste Sierra's new Ovila.
