Drank from the horse's mouth at Russian River Brewery during NoCal mircobrew vacation in Jul 2011.
Lighter-yellow coloring than expected.
Sweet, malty, yeasty nose.
Flavor matched nose well with excellent mouthfeel.
Great match to style...if you don't know what to expect from a strong Belgian and just order this because of the cool name and t-shirt, it may be too much (like my favorite at the brewery--Pliny the Elder). Not the type of beer I could have several glasses of in a sitting, but a treat nonetheless.
Serving type: on-tap

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!
Serving type: bottle
