Bright, refreshing Belgian yeastiness with a great spicy finish. No thirst will remain unquenched!

Wow! Soft fruity aroma, bananas and pears, cloudy golden with small finely beaded head. Tingles on the tongue, carbonation and alcohol warmth. Light overall, but taste is complex. Slight tart citrus finish.

Given that it’s Russian River, it’s kind of like Jessica Gomes showing up at your front door - you expect the best. And it’s pretty good, not mind shattering, but it’s Aite enough. So maybe Jessica showing up with hay fever, Damnation is.

American Thanksgiving (celebrated in Canada by a Canadian) - 375 ml cork and cage bottle - pours a cloudy golden with a large puffy head into tulip. Aroma is of earthy hops, fruity and slightly peppery yeast - the head has a pronounced hoppy bite. Taste is slightly hoppy fruit with spice, earthy, some piney bitterness, a touch of black pepper. As the beer warmed the bitterness dissipated and a bit more of the warming boozy nature appeared. I thought the beer was just ok as I started it but actually really liked it at the end. But if going to pick one beer from Santa Rosa, stick with Pliny.
