Glass at RR. Aroma and flavor of banana esters and wild yeast. Nice hoppy aroma and flavor, but not really my style. Pretty good beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Tustin Brewing during Russian River week. Yeasty, slightly musty aroma. Hazy, dirty amber color with a very faint head. Some barnyard funk is noticeable but not overwhelming. Nice cooked caramel sweetness balances out the tartness. There’s an earthy woodiness to this that’s really nice. Finishes with a little tanginess and honey sweetness. Very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours deep ruby with a creamy off-white head. Grainy bread in the nose, some ripe berries. Medium sweet flavor with more grainy bread, light dough, toast, old orange, berries, meringue. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Bready sweet finish, more grains, ripe fruits. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at the brewpub, Santa Rosa. Light amber orange coloured pour with a sticky off white head. Aroma is toasted bread, rye, grainstore, some rustic grains. Flavour is composed of slightly nutty toasted grains, light fruit esters, berry. Little Belgian rustic character. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation. OK.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at the brewpub. Looks good; a transparent pale copper with foamy off-white head with fine bubbles in it. Smells malty with notes of biscuit alongside some nuttiness and a touch of earthiness. Tastes like it smells with a semi-sweet backbone. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Not bad, but unmemorable.
