An excellent take. Poured at the brewpub. White head, orange tan and opaque body. Smells good. Tastes good. Balance supreme.

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 (870) - 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...

SirLimpsalot (3808) - SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2016
@ Russian River 16-3-7: Ännu en belgisk ale som blir för tvålig med de sedvanliga kryddorna och den belgiska jästen.

Draft at the brewpub, served in one of those tall footed glasses, exactly as pictured here. I nursed one while waiting for our table and talking to my wife on the phone in the back of the place by the bathrooms. It’s a good beer for that exact situation, if you should ever find yourself in RR on day 6 of a 10-day trip. It pours a mostly clear gold with a small white head that settles into a bubbly ring and thin film. Notes of grape must, bready and caramel malts, tea, grass, light summery esters, and florals. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a smooth, sweet, just barely funky mouthfeel. Nice Belgian blond.
