Had on tap at RR brewpub. Not quite sure what a "Biere de Sonoma" was, but the waiter explained it as just a local brew, of Belgian style. So yeah, a Belgian Ale (wrote Golden Ale in my notes). Pours a nice hazy amber color with good carbonation. Aroma is mostly malts, spice, and fruit. Taste was again mostly malts with a hit of alcohol in the middle. Finishes slightly bitter with a finish that didn’t linger too long. Solid, but not my favorite.

Pours a burnt golden color with a white head. Fruit, spice, tart, malt and some hop aroma. Fruit and spice flavors with a hoppy finish. Medium light body and average carbonation.

A bit of a let-down compared to other Russian River fare. Cloudy, with an unusual taste that I couldn’t quite place.

A pretty okay biere de garde. Malty with a sharp hop bite at the end. Some dirty malt character brought it down. Tried at the brewery in 2014.

Dfonorow (1217) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2014
On tap @ RR. Pour is murky brown/orange with a small off-white head. Notes of vanilla, candi sugar, yeast, and citrus peel. Flavor is dull and sweet, a lot of belgian qualities.

gyllenbock (4091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2014
On tap at the Brewpub in February 2014. Hazy dark orange with a small head. Aroma and taste of light funk, citrus, yeast, malt and some earth. The finish was dry. A descent one. .

Dr_Fellini (271) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy amber light copper color with a thin off white head. Aroma is quite mild, with hints of caramel and spice. Flavor packs a bit more spice. Mild to moderate in body with a lingering spice character. Solid.

Ferris (2033) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Draft - Grass and a bit of funk. Hazy gold with a rich head. Grass, light citrus and funky yeast. Nice but nothing out of the ordinary,

VinegarStroke (208) - Napa, California, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Tap at Russian River: cloudy, amber copper with thick light tan. Head. Malty, roastedm nutty, toffee, smokey caramel aromas. Light hops. Off dry to dry, phenolic to medium bitterness but not sour. Medium to full bodied, creamy and medium to long. Very fruity palate with roasted flavours. Not quiet traditional. It’s bigger, richer and roasted. Loads of hops on the palate. Slight pine. Hints of fruit cake. Lovely beer. Creamy nitrogen texture on the palate
