A: Dark brown amber with lots of whitish particles suspended within, no visible carbonation. 4 fingers of light beige creamy head. Great head retention and nice lacing.
S: Sweet fruity cherry candy and Belgian yeasts, caramel, toffee, raisins, dates, Walmart new plastic items scent, floral, very enticing and complex. Leather, new car scent.
T: Fruity, floral, complex, dates, brown sugar, leather, clean linen, smooth, umami, crème brûlée.
M: Thick body, medium carbonation. Chewy and weighty but smooth.
O: Very smooth, very well done brew, complex fruity, floral, very delicious. Unable to find a Russian River brew so far on the east coast, its nice to access it through this collaboration.

The package store i work at received about two cases of this stuff and we had it for about 2 weeks before i bought a bottle to try. I love the idea that they came together and made a new beer instead of fighting each other over the name. I also noticed that the foil over the neck of the bottle that has Avery's logo on it was turned inside out. Prolly a prank from Russian River. Anyways....
A: Pours a nice clear reddish amber into a orval goblet with a bit of white head that disappears quickly leaving a slight ring of lacing that lingers and a foam circle in the middle.
S: Smells of alcohol, spice, a bit of dark fruit like raisins or figs, belgian candi sugars and yeast funk, in that descending order. All of which is kind of muted.
T: The taste is stronger than the smell. a mix of alcohol and more fruit than the nose. not too spicy and only a little belgian candi sugar that builds only a little bit with every sip. definitely has a little alcohol burn to it too.
M: its perfect! At 8.9 percent it has a little weight but its not too heavy or sticky. i would say, "medium body".
O: I've only recently developed a taste for belgian styles. This is a beer that understands the concept of "less is more." Its has a good balance of sweetness and alcohol and spice and a tad bit of funk. It get easier to drink with every sip. I think its brilliant(I've been watching too much BBC)! Its not too sweet. Its not too spicey. I love it! If you love triples and quads then get it while the gettins good! You never can tell how american beer will stand the test of time
