Had it on tap at RRB yesterday. The publicans did a really good job with this saison. I hope they get together and brew some more specialty ales for their breweries only. I let my brother know to go stop by the Monks Cafe in Philly and try some there.

RBSG09 on tap at the brewpub. Pours an opaque goldenrod color with a thick white frothy head. Lemony aroma with white pepper, citrus zest, and banana pith. Candied citrus peel flavor with pepper and coriander spiciness. A decent dose of herbal hops delivers a nice bitterness in the finish. Perfect amounts of tartness, spice, and hops. Another mind-blowingly well-balanced beer from RR.

On tap at the brewpub. Just went on yesterday.

Pours a pale hazy yellow with a medium-sized hard white head. Insane thick fluffy lacing. Beautiful.

Smells like barnyard brett (not sure if this is actually used) and abundant citrus. Lemon zest.

Taste follows suit. Really nice bretty, orange, lemony, lightly spicy saison. Very tasty and quite refreshing. Not too sweet, and little to no detectable alcohol. Not overly complex, but everything is well balanced.

Light-medium bodied and somewhat creamy with a clean crisp finish makes this insanely easy-drinking. I was enjoying every sip of this and it really hit the spot.

Another fine beer from Russian River.
