3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
My first taste of the legendary Russian River. 375 ml bottle from C-mini mart in Dublin, CA. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is a little fruity, pear / apple. Taste is also pear / apple with a little peppery spice in the finish, faint booze. A solid belgian strong but not quite as awesome as I was expecting.

Rating from notes. Batch 67 .375L pours ginger-ale golden-orange with an aroma of cloves and hay and a thin mottled head of medium bubbles. The taste is lightly bubble gum and cloves and hay. Smooth and crisp with a lightly sticky bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy, light golden pour with a light head. Kind of winey aroma, not at all unpleasant. Tastes like flowers and grape, a bit of familiar Belgian spice. Nice long, dry finish with a peculiar and interesting balance. Very, very good. Would I drink again? yes. Would I order again? yes please!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden (as the style would suggest) with a fluffy, foamy white head that sits atop for quite some time. Aroma is earthy, with hints of hay in a barn. Taste is initially coriander, some lemon then sweet malts, almost Pilnser-ish, with a slightly warming and spicy finish.

Sept. 8, 2014. Bottle from SF purchased two years ago. Golden yellow colour with big white head. Strong white wine aroma, smelled it across the way while it was being poured. Sweet grape and peach flavours. Extremely smooth mouthfeel, quite lovely.
