Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is mild, Belgian yeast, mineral. Flavor is a bit funky, light Belgian yeast character. Mild body with a funky finish. Interesting, but not my favorite from Russian river.

SDalkoholic (2331) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 12, 2014
On tap @ O’Brien’s: Poured a dark golden liquid with a perfect film layer of foam. Aroma is mildly hopped with a whiff of Belgian yeast with a whiff of must as well. The palate is tingly with carbonation while the flavor is funky with a taste of dead yeast and hints of pine like hops.

hapjydeuce (996) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JAN 25, 2014
On tap at O’Briens in San Diego during the 2014 Russian River -TION weekend. Hazy light golden color, low carbonation. Light fruit aroma of pear, grass and peppery hops. Light, bright flavor of the same character. Nice mouth feel and easy to drink. Very sessionable.

Ferris (12374) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Draft - Light grains with a hint of lemon and coriander. Cloudy yellow with a rich white head. Perfumy and herbal, with a punch of hoppy bitterness. A very nice light Belgian ale.

BuckeyeSammy (609) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Hoppier than I expected. More if an IPA than a blonde. Stiff hopped back end, long finish. Thick mouthfeel. Malt pretty apparent in this one.

mcberko (13858) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Russian River, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out subtle Belgian yeast, cereal and toasted bread. Flavour is similar, bringing out cereal, Belgian yeast, and floral notes. Nice and dry on the palate, finishing zesty and florally. Not Russian River’s most adventurous Belgian beer, but very well-brewed nonetheless.
