Served in a beatiful stemmed tulip at teresas in bryn mawr, pa. Was astounded to see this on tap and jumped at the opportunity to try this...
A. A see through golden copper which is beautiful in color, but no head or lacing which is slight disappointment.
S. Yeast orange and lemon, and if look hard enough you'll get a tad bit of clove, and I swear I got a little bit of banana
T. Really dry upfront, I got some white grapes, great orange and lemon, and nice yeast flavors. Surprisingly light, medium to high carbonation, and a smooth feel on the tongue. A great refreshing kick of lemon to finish.
Not my favorite belgian, but would be interested in trying again to see if my taste buds were distracted

Belgian strong pale ale
APPEARANCE: Poured a hazy golden straw color. Huge billowy head, with lots of lacing coating the glass.
AROMA: Very strong aromas of Belgian yeast. Grassy, bready and malty. Cloves and pepper in the mix, overripe bananas and pears rounded it out.
TASTE: Fruit and malts up front reminiscent of warm banana bread with fresh ground pepper. Light spiciness and alcohol come through on the aftertaste.
MOUTHFEEL: Very lively beer, medium plus body with high prickly carbonation. Great wet finish that quenches your thirst.
OVERALL: I'm usually not much of a Belgian drinker but this is a solid outing from Russian River. Flavors are unique and enjoyable. This would be so good with some pungent cheese and cured meats.
RATING: 4/5 Zombie Heads!
