i am surprised to see this one rated so low. of all the non sour beers at russian river, this was one of my favorites. its a very light but flavorful blonde ale, more hoppy than most with a great citrus finish and enough body to not come through watered down at all. there appears to be some wheat in here too, a nice base for the higher hop dose. carbonation is happy and the finish is pretty clean. touch of sweetness there makes it stick. i dont get the low marks, its a great blonde ale. while i was in some ways unimpressed by the base beer offerings at russian river, i though this one was a success. definitely different from the crowd.
