Sampled on tap at Father's Office in Santa Monica. In the glass, this brew is a cloudy, but bright amber with a full & creamy white head. Nose is an enticing blend of apricot, herbal spices, sour apple, & coriander (although sampled in the same session as Horny Devil, the coriander in this brew seems almost non-existent). Enjoyable blend of sweet fruits and mild spicy hops. More subtle hints of sour apple throughout along with some drying woodiness. Medium-bodied brew with perfect carbonation & a gentle warming as it closes. Damn, I'd like to have this on tap nearby.
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
