First a caveat - I like a good Belgian now and again but it's far from my favorite style.
Nose of light fruit and malts with a slight but unpleasant metallic tang to it.
Roasted copper hue with light, pale and enduring head. Very pleasant on the palate with typical Belgian fruit, but heavier roasted malt character than is typical (though quite pleasant to me). Rich mouthfeel with moderate effervescence.
Finish lingers pleasantly.

Batch #8. Pours a dark, copper color with a thin white head. Light, cherry aroma with a thick malt presence. Nice, tart berry flavor with a malty kick. Really good collaboration.

Earthy yeasty bubblegum aromas come from this clear brown brew with a bit of fod floating around. Sweet malty with a typical belgian flavor and a nice war,th in the aftertaste. Its medium bodied and leaves a nice feeling on your pallet.

Cherry and faint wooden notes. A sweet yet boozy aroma back the bet as well. Cherry and amaretto start, while whiskey finishes the palate. A great, evenly balanced brew that offers a lot as it sits. Incredibly dynamic flavor profule.

Nice brew. A little musky for my taste but a great crossover Belgian/American ale

Spiced malts, reddish hops, yeast, earth components. This dark ale isn’t bad and it’s weird too. Some mint. I really enjoyed it.

Aroma is white bread, slightly funky Belgian yeast, malts and spices. The flavor is malts, bubblegum/bananas, mild funk, spices and a sourish/warming finish.

One of the best BSDA's I have ever had. This collaboration from Avery and Russian River is extremely superb and proves they are two of the best breweries in the country.
