On tap in a goblet.
A-Pure liquid golden color, one-finger white head, rings of lacing. Lively carbonated, clean and clear.
S-Light fruits, pear and banana. Grassy and yeasty. Very fresh with just a hint of alcohol.
T-Citrus hoppy and Belgian yeast. Some light frutiness.
M-Lots of smooth body, lots of carbonation. Very easy drinking with a crisp dry lingering hop finish. The abv takes a low profile.
O- A great beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from the bottle, the ale was a golden color with a generous white head. It left lacing around the sides of the glass in a manner appropriate for the style. In the aroma, one detects an almost grape-like wine aroma. In the mold of wine, it projected notes of a dry wine. In the initial taste, one detects notes of grape, grape skin, wheat, dry biscuit, yeast, and banana. The ale was smooth, yet pleasantly bubbly. When the fruits of the initial tastes evaporate, a dry aftertaste becomes apparent. In my overall impression, this is a complex beer with several tastes occurring at once. Though this is not the most respected Russian River, it holds up nicely against other beers.

3.91/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottled on 11/8/12. Purchased at a bar for $18 (my first Russian River beer - decided to splurg)
A - Golden yellow, clear, but plenty of sediment in the bottle due to bottle conditioning so be careful if you want to avoid the yeast and cloudiness. One-finger white head. Nice lacing. Well carbonated.
A - Minimal but hints of yeast and a little funk.
T - Dry, fruity, yeast, hides the ABV well.
MF - Bright from the carbonation. Resulted in quite a few burps (I never say this).
O - Quaffable strong belgian ale. Not to Duvel standards, especially when the price is considered. Disappointing for the price.
