4/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a La Chouffe tulip

A - Swampy blood orange, one finger off white head and a bit of lacing

S - Sweet yeast, Nice spice, some floral notes, a bit of citrus, some wood, earth and tons of sweet maltiness

T - Some what sour yeast, turns very sweet, lots of malt, floral hops, some citrus, earth, grass and wood

M - Medium body, low acid, nice complexity, slight bitterness and well balanced

D - If you like beer, if you like Belgian beer, you should give this one a shot. Super balanced, tons of flavor and two great breweries

Final thought - at $8 a pop and 8+% abv, this is a great deal. I love collaboration beer that is good. Much love to Russian river and avery

Collaboration not litigation batch #7

Enjoyed this in a delirium tulip glass

Poured a soft off white 1 finger head which quickly dissipates and is deep mahogany in color

Upfront this beer has a sweet toffee/caramel malt flavor with some dark fruit and little hop presence. Finishes strong with med-high carbonation and extremely pleasant alcohol warmth.

Closest thing we can get to russian river on the east coast and it doesn't disappoint!
