Served in a tulip glass from the bottle.

Appearance: Very hazy gold color with light sediments to the body. Bubbles are medium at best with a white head which initially rose to about one finger's length.

Smell: Yeast scent with touch of floral feel.

Taste: Sweet feel but not sugary, citrus sweet with a touch of breast yeast and touch sour.

Mouth: Medium carbonation with a descent smoothness and overall sticky.

Overall: Good brew, I got hit in the head with it since the place I bought it at was definitely scalping it since it's super rare to find Russian River stuff out here in long island. Salud.

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.
