2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
My favorite of the hoppy ales Russian River makes. A double edged hoppiness, not too overpowering, good for enjoying with cheese or food.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ O’Brien’s: Poured a dark golden honey color with a thin covering of film head across the Chimay trappist glass cup. Aroma is lively with a spicy scent of authentic Belgian farmhouse yeast that even on my third beer of the night had me drooling with saliva to taste which usually isn’t the case with most other saisons. The drink was heavily spiced with notes of clove and perfume/cologne like flavors but has a taste also had a striking resemblance to ginger soda. Has an empty finish which is sort of watery but not a bad attempt at the farmhouse style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy golden orange pour with a white head. Lactic sourness up front with a nice lemon zest note. Some grass, straw, yeast, and a light bready sweetness. Very bright and citrusy. The flavor has a very nice lemon tartness, lime zest, and plenty of grass. A bit of bread sweetness, yeast, straw, and a dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at OBriens. Clear golden amber pour, with fluffy white head. Bread, rough grain, straw, light lemon grass, banana sweetness, and finishes with light tartness which is a bit strange. Decent and enjoyable, but not a fantastic saison.
