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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the source. Pours a cloudy pale color. Aroma is saisonesque with lots of clove, pepper, banana, and pear. Taste is medium sweet with some caramel maltiness that goes with the yeastys.

jkwood04 (3743) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 31, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours brown/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some pale and slightly darker and caramel malts, some light fruits, and a dryness. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

dansac (89) - Loa Angeles, USA - MAY 27, 2014
One of their weakest offerings, I think. Smells metallic, slightly dank, mouthfeel is bready, malty slight hop presence, mostly dry. It is overall quite one dimensional and rather plain in my opinion. Finishes with a dry, almost metallic taste I don’t enjoy. Carbonation is lively. Meh.

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Keg at Russian River, Santa Rosa, 27/04/14. Hazed orange amber with a moderate light beige covering that retains well. Nose is spice, lemon rind, straw, earthy, orange peel, hedgerow, light herbal. Taste follows, citric rind, grassy tones, light spice, orange peel, Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a grassy linger. Decent for style, refreshing stuff.

Draught @ Russian River, Santa Rosa, CA

Pours murky orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of earthy notes, yeast, spices, hops and grass. Taste is smooth, earthy and yeasty with some grass, fruity hops and spices. Finish is yeasty and a bit stuffy with some smooth ripe fruitness. Quite untypical Biere de garde.

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

ads135 (2814) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAR 30, 2014
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.
