Batch 008

Slightly hazy, milky yellow color with a white head. Delicate lemony and spicy phenols in the aroma. Light lemon pepper flavor, yeasty with a bitter herbal hop finish. A great beer to have a few of. Packaging is very dramatic for a beer like this though.

Rating this based on an abbey single ale style. What a pour - big fluffy head, very light color - a little lighter than what I expect. Nice grassy/spicy nose. Yeast slurry.

Entry is smooth, crisp and flavorful for style. Nice malts, spice, lemongrass. Fresh cut apples. Lingering spiciness. Crisp, fresh, refreshing. Fresh beer.

What a wonderful example of style. For a light beer in alcohol, it packs flavor and character.

Bravo.

On tap at Russian River in August 2009.

A: Pours a bright gold with a nice and fluffy white head that drops down into a few nice rings of lacing.

S: A little bit of earthiness to go along with some citrus and yeast.

T: A little bit of sweetness from the malt as well as some citrus fruits and yeast characteristics; floral and earthy hops make it slightly bitter.

M: Medium-bodied with good carbonation.

D: Very drinkable and a great example of the style.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass, there are immediate scents of honey and lightly toasted cereal as the beer pours. It is a slightly hazy, vibrant straw-yellow coloring with a nice, thick, big bubbled head. On further nasal investigation, you get some citrus highlights with some underlying coriander spice. Smells really good! The beer is spicier than the smell lets on, with a strong coriander (and a bit of clove) flavor sliding along the slightly lemony-citrus malt flavor. There is also some sour characteristic to the flavor, which blends with the beer very well. The beer is very crisp and light in mouth, and leaves a slightly sour and spiced aftertaste in your mouth that transitions into a slight puckering sour if you space out the sips long enough. The finish is smooth and clean, and the lingering tastes are pleasant. This is a good drinker.
