3.9/5 rDev -3.2%
Thanks to warnerry for the bottle.
A- Pours a light yellow,color with just the slightest haze to it. The white head is thin and creamy with some nice retention.
S- White bread, light fruit, just the slightest hint of pepper, and some Belgian yeast. Simple but nice.
T- Light fruit, white bread, and a bit of pepper. Simple.
M- Abundant carbonation keeps it light with a bit of a bite. The finish is clean.
O- This is a simple and tasty beer. Refreshing, but not too interesting. I don't think I would have as high of a regard for it if the packaging was simpler.

4.2/5 rDev +4.2%
Batch 11. Bottle to 'tion glass at about 55 degrees.
A: Easy pour down the center of the glass leads to a half finger head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Golden yellow slightly orange colored hue. A little murky however I believe that is because I poured the yeast. Looks ok in the glass. 3.5
S: Pretty funky, belgian yeast, slight banana, a bit of grass. Smells really nice. 4.0
T: Slight sourness...more tart that sour. Nice and smooth. Not that I drink white wine much but this has somewhat of a white wine character. 4.5
M: Mouthfeel is good with nice carbonation, very prickly on the tongue. 4.0
O: Overall a really nice beer, nice mouthfeel, always enjoy every beer from Russian River. 4.0

3.55/5 rDev -11.9%
375mL bottle poured into a snifter
A: Poured very slowly but still is quite hazy. Golden with an almost brownish hue, and a massive amount of bubbly snow-white head, which takes minutes to dissipate down. Leaves a good amount of lacing. Lots of carbonation bubbles can be seen racing up the class. The color just isn’t very appealing though, especially with the haziness.
S:Sweet fruits, pear and banana, alone with a spice character consisting of clove and white pepper. A little bit of lemony citrus as well. Would agree with others in that is has the characteristics of a hefe, except heavier on the spice.
T: The most prominent flavor is clove. Other characters noted are lemon, peppery spice, a wheat flavor, some orange, and a touch of banana.
M/D: Has a bubbly mouthfeel, but kind of leaves an odd film in the mouth. Might be the yeast that escaped in the pour. Medium bodied and easy to drink. That lingering mouth film bothers me though.
O: Overall, I found this underwhelming. I was lucky enough to get my hands on 5 RR brews on my west coast trip, this is the 4th of the 5 and so far is it by far my least favorite. It’s enjoyable but it’s nothing special. I also think I drank this too warm. I usually prefer my beers at slightly higher temps than recommended but I would suggest to drink this one quite chilled.
