I get my Russian river stuff from my college buddy Pipmeister. Thanks man.

Pours a nice brown color with a nice light tan head with very good color.

Smells of yeast and has a nice bite to the smell. Very nice.

Tastes great with a little yeast. Lots of spices. Very nice caramel body. Nice slight hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is good and refreshing and goes down smooth.

Drinkability is high and it is one of my favorite if not the most favorite of all Russian river beers. Will have this one many times in the future.

11/24/11 Cellar Review
750ml bottle. Aged about 2 1/2-3 years. Poured into a goblet style wine glass. Pours a nice semi clear walnut brown with red hues. Nice 1/4" head and nice lacing.

Aroma is the best part. Dark fruits of raisins and figs. Dark Belgian candy sugar and malt. Nice Belgian aroma too.

Taste is great. Similar to smell just not at potent. Nice dark fruits and belgin yeast. Tasty.

Mouthfeel is smooth and good carb.

Overall vey tasty aged a bit. If I remember correctly I like it with a bit of age on it like this compared to fresh.

Biere de Sonoma at RR Brewpub
from notes 10 October 2011

hazy, light brown with a small but full off-white head: pleasant earth tones.

very mild aromas of belgian sugars, some pine syrup, and a little grass and fruit like a mild pear.
nonabrasive aromas. not very much else.

so subtle! some pine, some florals, belgian yeast, a bit bread-y, a really smooth maltiness that reminds me of a very mellow english ale or a super-mild brown ale.
lightly, very lightly bitter with a semi dry finish. superbly restrained.

it's a pleasant drinker: not too bitter or biting, not too sweet, and not too dry. it's very refreshing.

lovely beer. the aromas and flavors are very subtle yet it remains refreshing and interesting to the last sip.
it is nearly the perfect all-around brew for any food; i could see pairing this with nearly any cuisine successfully.
they put this beer in the dough used for their pizzas. brilliant. incredible restraint behind this one.
