Pour a very hazy straw yellow (oN draft), whispy foam head. Aroma is a mixture of pepper, Belgian yeast esters, maize, and light toasty malt. Smooth body, good sweet level, some bitterness at the end. Well rounded and complex. An underrated RR beer (if possible) for sure.

Poured from a 375ml bottled 3/21/14 a nice pale cloudy yellow with an orange hue with a very thin head that disappears quickly. The carbonation in this beer was wonderful adding another dimension to a Belgian blonde that is a style I typically do not go for but this was lovely and crisp. Great beer.

375 ml bottle was poured into a tulip glass. Batch 9.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy pale yellow color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Red wine barrel, wheaty, bready, vanilla, and yeasty.

Taste: Very traditional blond ale flavor. A bit chewy, wine barrel flavor, yeasty, a little twang, and a little funk.

Mouthfeel: Light, a bit chewy, medium carbonation, yeasty, and light wine funk.

Overall: Very traditional blond ale with some wine barrel flavor. I'll look forward to this one again whenever I come across it in my travels.

Bottled 10/21/15, purchased at the brewery.

A beautiful blonde ale. Balanced, refreshing, just the right hint of funk, perfect carbonation.

Such a tasty pale ale. Tastes great in the winter, but I really need to revisit this one in the summer as I think it would make for an awesome warm weather beer. Russian River can do no wrong
