Nephilium (1702) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Grassy and earthy aroma, pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a full white head. Slightly fruity note to start with, which then fades to crisp malt flavor, and spicy hops. There’s just a touch of tartness in the finish here, and the beer is very dry. Light bodied and very refreshing. Another great Belgian from Russian River.

Light pale yellow pour, clear with a slight white head. Clean, crisp nose and taste. Slightly hoppy, really nice balance between a bit of malt, classic hops and an estery Belgian.

thornecb (5539) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes leaving trailing sheets to coat surface. Caramel and resin aromas. Sharp with hay and sourdough upfront turning to citrus and resin before the lasting pith finish.

andrewje41 (2960) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Draft pour pint during my first ever visit to Russian River. Already quite a memorable beer with the setting alone. Hazy golden yellow pour. Has a Belgian yeast and spicy grain aroma that you have to dive into the glass a but to get. A tropical fruity hop profile that leads to a desert dry finish. Full of flavor though. Has a lemon flavor without much tart to pair. Overall a solid Belgian.

Biroholik (909) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - MAY 4, 2016
Draught @ Russian River Brewing, Santa Rosa, California (20.04.2016)
Hoppy Blonde Ale 7,25% alk. 16 BLG
Złoty, lekko zamglony. Piana kremowo-biała, średnja. W aromacie ponownie belgijski charakter lecz tym razem w słodszym wydaniu. Słodko również w smaku. Wyczuwalny przede wszystkim cukier trzcinowy. Poza tym zboża, lekkie przyprawy (goździk), belgijskie drożdże. Na drugim planie owoce cytrusowe (głównie pomarańcze), a także brzoskwinie i morele. Lekka guma balonowa. Jest rześkie w smaku, mocno nachmielone, ale z belgijskimi akcentami, pełne w smaku z wysoką goryczką. Słabe...
