look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

750 ml bottle (batch 5) from the brewpub poured into my Russian River Barrel Aged beers goblet, Redemption is a clear, spritzy gold with a large, dense white head that's very long lasting and leaves very heavy lace.

Smell is grainy, a touch of honey sweetness and minty hops, with a slightly musty, 'shroom like funk.

Taste is overall pretty simple, a bit heavy plastic phenols early on, fading to dusty, bready graininess with a yeasty finish. I really wanted more depth from the brett, but here it's really just a bit of corkiness.

Mouthfeel is full of soft carbonation, a little yeasty, medium bodied.

Drinkability is OK, a pretty simple little beer, not really my taste, I'd prefer fruitier esters or more brett funk, which is very subdued at this point. I have another bottle, and am in no hurry to open it. Maybe it will funk up a bunch in a few years, maybe it will fall apart...either way, this was boring enough that I'm willing to wait and see.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Paid $7.49 for an Austrailian Longneck from Monument in Concord, CA. Poured into a snifter.

A large inch and a half fairly frothy white head. Moderately transparent shiny gold color. Excellent head retention. Strong thick lacing.

Strong aroma of yeasty breads and wheat. Grassy and earthy hops in the background.

A pleasantly strong yeasty flavor with sweeter malts to balance. The hops are not as apparent as they were in the nose.

Rather watery. Medium body. Moderate carbonation.

Decent drinkability.

For the flavors this beer represents, I enjoyed it. So, if you are a fan of the style, I'd definitely recommend. Personally, I probably won't be getting this one again.

The beer pours is a beautiful, effervescent, straw golden color with a substantial frothy head and great retention. Redemption smells of lemon and spices. The taste is bitter up front and spicy. There are some mild citrus notes and the finish is dry. The mouthfeel is creamy and the beer is well carbonated.

Batch 5

Pours a clear light amber with a creme head. Nose is doughy funk. Citrus is quite present too. Flavor is nice. Smooth with a bit of an edge that's mostly funky. Bit of an acidic bite to it. The most consistent flavor character is an earthy dough. Feel has an attacking carbonation that seems to linger on the tongue. Liquid is thicker and a bit sticky really. A nice drinker. An earthy BPA, but a nice one to drink. Another tasty RR production.

Just received the dreaded Shipping exception from fed/ex. I needed to drink something really good so I went with this one. Thanks flexabull for this one

A batch 4 bottle poured into a snifter produced a good two fingers worth of white head. That turns to a thick lace that tops of a clear golden orange body

Nice yeasty aroma fills my nose. With some nice sweet fruity smells as well as a spice (pepper) note in the end. Yes it's light and refreshing

The flavors are very light on the tongue as well bananas and citrus flavors are evident up front. The spiciness of the hops comes of well and keeps this brew extremely well balanced. Light mouth feel and good carbonation keeps this thing very drinkable

This is now my favorite session brew of all time. It is great on a hot day and I would love to be close enough to make this one of my session brews.

Batch 004. Large corked bottle.

It is a bright, light golden brew with a luscious white, foamy head, that holds nearly forever, and leaves a lot of lacing on its way down. It is clear, but will obviously get murky if you drop the bottom sediment. I tried both ways.
Mildly yeasty, with a predominance of fresh fruits on the nose, particularly apples. Notes of earth and herbs complete a very pleasant nose.
Easy to drink, light but packed with flavor, fruity, earthy, spiced so at times it feels almost salty. Some hints of tartness and a little acidity just adds to the enjoyment.
A very well crafted low alcohol beer. Great session, although I prefer to take it down very slowly to enjoy all its nuances.

750ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A- Pours a golden orange color with a large creamy off-white head that possesses amazing retention and stick.

S- The aroma is light and fruity with hints of spices and yeast.

T- The taste is pale malts with some faint citrus with hints of funk and yeast.

M- The mouthfeel is light bodied with a high amount of carbonation. Very prickly on the tongue.

D- This beer is extremely refreshing and highly drinkable at 5% ABV. No problem at all to finish off the bottle.

Overall, Redemption is another fantastic brew from Russian River. I am falling in love with this amazing brewery.

This delicious beer was poured into a snifter from a 350?ml bottle before being enjoyed.

I gave this a soft pour as the bottle directed, producing a half finger of foamy white head which leaves a moderate amount of lacing on the glass. The color is like amber-honey and is semi-translucent.

The smell hits me with pine and candied citrus such as grapefruit and lemon, very pleasant and inviting.

Hops hit me first with a good pineyness before being overcome by the sweet citric elements with some soft alcohol notes.

The mouthfeel is smooth with slight carbonation.

Drinkability is excellent- I could have a number of these any time of the year- suitable lightness in character for the summer but deep, complex, and warming for the winter.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A 750 mL bottle, caged & corked - Batch 003 (ABV: 5.30%). Poured to the big 'Gulden Draak' tulip glass and served well-chilled, with a little time given to warm. My label looks identical to one above, except for the words "with Brettanomyces".

A: Perfectly golden and almost clear, just a little haze. Plenty of tiny carbonation streams cutting through and rising to a pillowy snow-white head. Starts at 2-fingers and takes several minutes to drop to about a 1/2 finger of cream. Lace clings in long curtain-like veils. Only minor drawback is the flecks of yeast sitting on the bottom of the glass, and that's partially my fault for a pour that, while not aggressive, could have been slower. Still, a beautiful beer.

S: A sultry Brett funkiness and a fragrant spiced sweetness. Sugars, spicier black pepper and fruit esters (think tart berries, slight melon, a little green raisin) drift in and out in waves, amidst a papery dustiness. Pretty much a rustic Belgian Pale Ale, created 5000 miles west.

T: Hmmm...not as complex as I might have guessed, based on smell. Has a simple,but elegant, grain sweetness, covered with tart fruit (apricots, green apples) and a drying medicinal finish. Funkier tartness seems subdued, only hinting at the 'horse blanket' and 'band-aid'.

M: A gentle, tongue-tickling crispness from a smooth carbonation. Finishes dry, with a bittering that sets right in the middle of the tongue, causing a very slight curl/pucker.

D: Good, drinkable, fairly refreshing at the end of a warm day. Not the best of the Russian Rivers I've tried, but that bar is set very high. One I would like to have again; I have to wonder, seeing the recent reviews from the 004 Batch, if mine could impress me more if fresher.

Thanks to Andy (jgaston) for sending this back in May; I may have to hit you up for another at some point for a re-taste!

Batch 004 - 5.65% ABV

A - A fine-looking brew in a tulip. A frothy, rocky white head sits atop a fairly carbonated, clear, golden body. Bubbles rise up to the surface at a rather slow rate of speed, but there sure is a lot of them. Lacing.

S - Lighter fruits, green apples, yeasty esters. Slight spiciness. Nothing remarkable, but smells wonderful nonetheless.

T - Rather sweet, but not cloying. Yeast is prevelant, and it has the tendency to transform a bit in your mouth. It seems all the spots are hit with this... sweet, sour, dry, bitter... all without becoming a jumbled mess. For a lighter brew, this really doesn't hold back. Could it stand to be less muted? Sure... but then we'd be getting into BSPA categories. For what it is, it's a damned fine brew.

M - Light and crisp, with a slightly coating finish.

D - This could be cloying on a bad day, I'm sure. Right now, I'm chillin out, just got off work, enjoyin this mild 73 degree day. Can't think of many other brews I'd pick over this right now.

Notes: Got this from Largadeer in my second trade and finally delved into it. My first RR turned out to be a tasty example of their craftsmanship. If anything, I'm even more stoked to try the other offerings in my cellar. Shit, my mom liked this.

Review from notes.

Slightly hazed golden colour with a thin white head.

Yeasty belgian aroma with lots of citrus. Pink grapefruit is strongest impression.

Very citrus in flavour. Sweetened pink grapefruit with a slight tartness to balance. A little bit of funky yeast to finish.

Light and effervescent mouthfeel. Good but not outstanding.

This is an easy drinker, tasty and interesting but not overdone.

Received this one in a trade a while back and just got around last night to finally pulling it out of the fridge. Nice 750ml corked and caged bottle that I served right out of the fridge and poured it into the Mock Turtle.

Appearance - The pour was very nice and I have to give it credit for that. A gorgeous golden ale was presented in front of me. Deep cloudiness and haze rippling through it and lots of sediment on the bottom. Good carbonation could be seen straightaway as it rippled up toward the surface. A nice towering two inch layer of foam came up over the top and only barely settled down leaving behind tons of side glass lace and a nice white pillow in its wake.

Smell - The aroma was very light, almost too light to be honest. Nice amount of pepper like spices mixed in, with hints of light fruit and a touch of lemon. Some strong wheat notes as it warmed, but everything overall was quite light.

Taste - The flavor was ok as well. I was really expecting a little bit more from this one to be honest, but it is what it is. Starts off with some nice light yeast notes, hints of peaches or pears maybe, touch of grass, all very light with a definite warm weather like quality to it. Some subtle hints of citrus rolling around in the back and making the whole thing come together quite nicely. The finish was quick, with a clean sweep of the palate and not much in the way of a lingering flavor.

Mouthfeel - The feel was very decent with a good carbonation profile that really just let everything pop in just the right way. I was very pleased with this. Lots of activity and a nice light body.

Drinkability - This would make an outstanding session beer, especially on a hot day. It was just light and fruity, with a beautiful carbonation profile and a nice light and bubbly nature to it. I could see myself drinking this when its 100 outside( which incidentally it was yesterday)

Overall I thought this was an excellent beer. However with that being said, has to be my least favorite of all the Russian River offerings I have tried. Just something about it was not right, or a little off. Oh well though, still better then half the other offerings out there. Definitely go out and try this one. It is a great thing for the hot weather.

750ml batch 004 bottle courtesy of either KingG or swnicholson, thanks! My bottle lists the ABV as 5.65% if that matters to anyone. The color of this beer is a beautiful, mostly clear golden with a large white head that laces the glass pretty well. It smells slightly medicinal, minerals and a hint of fruit in the back. The taste is nice, subtle, and hard to describe. This reminds me of a true Belgian but i can't think of which one. This is a very easy beer to drink and something perfect for the summer

A 750 mL corked and caged bottle courtesy of nerd at DLD 07.

A: The aple is a pale, straw color, looking more like a macro lager than a Belgian offering. The ale is foamy with a 3 plus finger head that laces in thick patches around the glass.

S: The nose is pleasantly Belgian, witbier like with a coriander and candi sugar profile. No tart orange rind though. The yeast leaves a dry impression.

T: The immediate reaction is very Belgian, fruity with a touch of zest but that flavor is quickly overtaken by a dry, hot yeast presence. A touch of yeast funkiness gives the ale a quasi-Orval flavor without the brett background. Very interesting with an over-arching black pepper flavor. The sweetness of the candi suagrs are an excellent contrast to the coriander.

M: The ale is very light, even with the abundant flavors throughout. The touch of funkiness is very refreshing, quickly drying out the mouth.

D: Only 5%? The alcohol never stood but I never thought that it would be that low. An excellent offering with a spicy flavor that will please.

A wonderful beer, this is a lot like a milder Damnation and is very similar to Orval.

Bright gold, it has with tiny, steady, bubbles, and a huge white head slowly shrinking to a creamy, permanent medium head. It leaves some uneven, foamy lace.

It smells of fruit, grain, hints of banana and pine. It seems overall rather sweet but light.

The taste has qualities of a lighter take on an ESB blended with a hefewiezen, very fruity with light grain, citrus, hints of herbs and pine, a little yeast. The finish is a mix of of grain, fruit and herbs. Lightly sweet, it is balanced with light bitterness and a very faint yeasty sourness. Light, crisp, refreshing and easy to drink, it still has plenty of flavour and well-rounded character.

Russian River Redemption Batch 3, enjoyed out of my Delirium tulip with my bro.

Appearance: Lightly carbonated, but still retains a slight head. Crystal clean golden color.

Aroma: Light spicy malts with just a hint of a soft floral notes.

Flavor: Incredible smooth. Light spicy notes that fade into melons. Very good crisp flavor that not much of lingerer. But what is there is nice and dry.

Mouth Feel: Very thin, which is sort of as to be expected. Nice carbonation.

Drink ability: This is just simply a Belgian session beer for me. I could drink this guy damn near all day and be just fine with it. Smooth, tasty, easy drinkin.

750ml

Batch 04
Bottled 12/28/07

Received this in a recent trade with jhenry04, thanks Jason! Redemption pours a polished brass with tiny particles that the torrent of large natural carbonation bubbles keep suspended. A bubbly two + finger cottony white head appeared on the pour and fell to a pillowy creaminess after some time leaving thick spotty lacing on the way down. The carbonation keeps the head in place throughout.

My nose is greeted with all sorts of fruitiness and spices. Green apple skins, underipe banana, and a touch of sweet pineapple toward the back. The yeast brings along a solid sprinkling of white pepper. Each swirl of the glass briefly brings forward some bubble gum. There's a robust nose for such a low abv beer reminds me of a quality tripel without the booziness.

The flavor follows along the lines the nose suggested although not quite as bold. The fruitiness really comes together well although a little muddled at times. A dusty yeastiness presents itself on the swallow. The bold yeastiness really brings this brew together nicely over the pale maltiness.

The mouthfeel is where it should be. A healthy carbonation keeps the light body flowing. A slightly chalky finish comes about before the bone dryness. I love a nice dry Belgian, whether it's a saison or pale.

The refreshing quality and lower abv make this a no brainer session beer. Good for a warm summer day.

Redemption is yet another good beer from Russian River. They never fail to disappoint. They hit the nail on the head with a style that's tough to come across. I wouldn't mind another bottle or two of Redemption.

750 shared with SAS last night .. reviewed off of paper notes.

Batch 3 bottle picked up for me last summer at the brewpub by reinheitsgematt .. cellared ever since.

2" head drops fast leaving beautiful lacing.. very clear honey colored brew.

Aroma is spicy pale malt ... slight white pepper... a little fruity.. sorta like honeydew.

Flavor is triple "lite" .. more spicy that the aroma .. a little bitterness helps tie things together well.. lite mouthfeel with good carbonation.. fairly dry finish with a lingering floral/fruity notes.

IMHO a damn near perfect session beer... I could drink this all night.. unfortunately this was my last bottle.

Let's just say, I didn't expect this to be one of the most perfect beers I've ever tasted, and easily one of my favorites, preferred even to the fuller, bigger, bolder, Damnation. Maybe it was the food pairing (a penne w/ swiss chard)... I dunno.

Pours an awesome pale, dusty straw color with a rich, creamy head into my Levitation tulip. Tons of head, great looking carbonation... just gorgeous. Lacing in the two glasses it was poured into wasn't fantastic, which perhaps is my fault with the cleaning, but it's the only minor nick to the score.

Aroma is a burst of fruit, pineapple and banana with a whiff of white pepper. A yeasty, fruity, sweet goodness with a touch of malt. Awesome. Only complaint? It's just a bit much, a bit rich and sweet, for a session beer. I'm splitting hairs.

Flavor is an awesome mild meld.... the heady yeast-based aromas slide to the back a little, and a bready malty base shines. A refined hoppy bite closes things off, a bit on the spicy side of things. Nice dry finish, but when sitting on it, there's a bit of cloyingness left in the mouth. It's easy drinking, keeps you coming back, big pepper and spice towards the end.

Mouth is perfect. Smooth with a silky carbonation. Medium to light body. Perfect.

Just a great drinking beer that I'm eagerly seeking out again... just wish that it were toned down just a HAIR. But if it weren't... well... this is easily one of my favorite beers, and my favorite of the standard (non-sour) Belgian-style beers Russian River makes.

p.s. if it isn't clear from the reviews, this beer is no longer refermented with brettanomyces (not since batch 001, this was an 004).

Picked up a couple bottles of these at the RR brewery on a NorCal beer trip....lots of fun. Batch 004.

A- POurs a clear golden yellow, with a pure white tiny bubbled pure white head about half an inch that sinks down to a thin layer of tiny bubbles being regenerated by multiple thin streamers. Almost looks like a macro lager to me.

S- A light sweetness of summer stone fruits- apricot, yellow plums. Slight lemons, green apples. No bitterness on the nose.

T- Again a lightsummer stone fruits, with a bit of a vanilla, lemon that fades to a slight bitterness that lingers. Very tasty.

M- Light, well carbonated. Finishes dry.

D- This is a great summer drinker, very sessionable. I really enjoyed this one, and makes me think of summer- I love summer.

Wine bottle sized batch #003 poured into a snifter around 45 degrees.

Appears okay, nice bright white head and a blonde/yellow look with a little bit of orange highlights. Good retention and lacing, the reason I docked it is because it has a ton of little sediment floating around, that just doesn't seem to want to settle to the bottom.

Smells really good! Nice and horsey with some pepper and citrus zing. Basically a stronger smell than most other similar belgian versions of the style, with more complexities.

Tastes darn good for a lighter beer, A bit of sweet character of soft pineapple and other mellow fruits like mango hit first, and an earthy/peppery flavor fades in and out until the swallow, where there is some tart apple. Well rounded, complex and balanced, which is what I like most about Russian River.

Mouthfeel is quite good for a blonde, nice and light but has a slight oilyness to it that helps lubricate the mouth before a dry finish. Good carbonation levels too.

Drinkability is also good, nice light and refreshing, easy to drink but the carbonation makes it a bit hard to drink really fast. Overall another quality brew from Russian River. Perhaps more mellow in flavor than most of theirs but I expected that going in, afterall it's a blonde ale, but it's well executed.

750mL bottle straight from the source, Russian River Brewing in Santa Rosa, CA. This particular bottle is label batch #4.

A: Pours effortlessly a golden/yellow color with clear presentation. A thick two finger, pearl white head appeared and slowly disappears into a blotchy, glass-lacing pattern.
S: Sweet flora aroma with a barnyard hay/grass note. Very aromatic.
T: Carried over from the nose is the presence of hay/grass, but with more of a dusty taste. Seems like this beer was out in the field with you while you work. Taste reminds me of a light lager, but much more highly carbonated.
M: Dry like champagne. Above average carbonation. A lingering bitterness makes itself known.
D: Tasty, but less than I expected. I wonder how this bottle would change with more days/weeks/months/years cellared.

i've had this beer many many times. Both on tap, and in the bottle. I definately prefer the bottled release, and in fact I prefer the first bottling as well.

This is a solid well made Belgian single golden gale in the style of Southamptons abbey single or Mckenzies abbey single.

It is a nice blonde/gold with an ample frothy head of foam. aromas are spicy and malty, with a good hop backbone, and a nice fresh baked bread scent as well..

Taste is spicy/hoppy/eathy with pepperty floral notes, and a sweet biscuit malt finish tinged with bittering hop metal. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth and the drinkability is good. A great trappist style Belgian single.

Thanks to Uncle Mattie. This is the batch 002 with no bret. It is all about yeast and a touch of funky aroma after the initial glass. Very drinkable and sessionable but not that complex. Soft on the tongue, this is a changeup for the RR brews I have had to date. Cloudy and lace.
