look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured into what looked like a hybrid between a teku and a tulip glass, at Strangelove's, Philly.
A- Pale golden yellow haze of a body, with a light, nearly wispy, white head. Well retained. Beautifully showcased in the glass.
S- Yeasty up front. A bit of booze aroma, but the distinct Belgian spiciness and subtle citrus notes overcome.
T- A light sweetness comes out with yeast and spice. Tangy light fruit character as well.
M- Light body, with a tangy crisp finish. Pleasant.
O- This is a good beer. It's got great characteristics, but as far as Russian River goes for me so far, nothing has stuck out much. The big rare brews they have aren't common in my area, so maybe that's why I'm missing the hype of RR.
Serving type: on-tap

4.35/5 rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
a: golden hue with an ample white/slightly off-white head. Small lacing that retains fairly well.
s: On the nose I get pear, apples, and honey.
t: prickly carbonation, slightly tart with lemon, pepper, coriander coming through; finish with floral, spicy hops lingering
m: high carbonation, medium-light body
o: nice beer. I don't drink a lot in this style, but it's one of the better versions I've had in recent memory. This inexplicably sat in my cellar for a year (bottled 4/22/2013), and I am pleasantly surprised at how it has held up. Will get again next time I am within their distributors' range.
