Russian River ales are always fun and special because they are bottled and presented well initially. The ale itself poured with a thin fizzy head that dissappated in mere moments. The color was of an apple cider like tint, cloudy and yellow but almost reddish in a way. The aroma is of apple and cloves but the taste follows on the apple. The taste is more complex than just apple as three distinct stages were present. It felt as the first taste disappeared quickly, a new taste emerged at the swallow and the aftertaste linger softly for some time. I simply could not describe each taste and it seemed I wanted more. My only complaint would be the feel was quite carbonated and bubbly, almost thin. Overall this was an experience and a good one at that.

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!
