jrgratz (113) - New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Tap at Russian River 10.28.2012.. Pours a beautiful brown with a wispy white head that leaves a nice lacing. Smell is of cloves, bananas, cereal grain, malt, and some dried fruit at the end. Some roasted sour and bitter flavors up front. Some stewed fruit and a slight sweetness at the end. Rich and creamy mouthfeel with the slightest bit of astringency on the finish. Very smooth, and very easy to drink.

ippopotamo36 (1635) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 3, 2016
On tap at Russian River Brewing in Santa Rosa, CA-USA. Dark orange clear, off-white foam. Nose: Belgian yeast, esters, peers. Mouth: clean start, funky in the middle, tart finish, extravagant. Did not get it. Requires more time and perhaps talks with the Brewer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Biroholik (870) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 29, 2016
Draught @ Russian River Brewing, Santa Rosa, California (20.04.2016)
Bierre De Sonoma 6,1% alk. 14,5 BLG
Piękny belgijski, wyraźny aromat. Masa nut drożdżowych. Za nimi idą owoce takie jak banany, morele, brzoskwinie. Sporo nut zbożowych, w szczególności pszenica. W tle leciutki cytrus (cytryna, limonka). Z drugiej strony karmel i nuty chlebowe. W smaku przypomina w niektórych aspektach Saisona. Średnio-pełne. Pikantny pieprzowy, przyprawowy finisz. Oleista faktura. Nic wyjątkowego.

JohnGalt1 (1663) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 16, 2016
3 finger lite tan foamy head... very pretty.. took forever to die back.. left nice lace atop a crystal clear deep amber orange brew. Aroma is toasty malts.. with waffs of caramel.. sorta musty .. a little biscuity.. and toasted bread. Flavor begins with a nice unexpected bitter punch to the back of the palate... melts forward into the above mentioned toasty malts.. not as much caramel as I would have expected there either.. more of a nod toward caramel... a sorta nutty essence with a little bit of dried fruit.. some spiciness that is tough to put a finger on... reminds me of a saison with quite a bit of victory malt thrown in... finish though is fairly dry.. lingering hints of the previous sip hang out for quite a while.. body is lite/medium with smooth creamy carbonation.. drinkability is dangerous.

@ Russian River 16-3-7: Tydlig malt och bröd och en lite kryddig eftersmak. Nja kanske ingen favorit.
