Hazy orange pour with a nice white head. I get a little straw in the nose, mixed with white grape. Nicely carbonated, slightly heavy mouthfeel. Very dry. Slightly spicy at the start finishing with a nice bitterness.

Bought from Russian River & poured into a pint glass a lovely light yellow with a white head. Aroma is of oaky lemon funk. Grabbing the Belgium yeast. Flavor is incredible lemony citrus. Maybe a bit of grapes? Excellent blonde style done well.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma - yeasty, white wine, wheat, grassy note some funk. Taste - usual Belgium flavours, quite subtle, yeast, lemon. Tastes like a standard Belgium wit to me. Clean, crisp, drinkable but nothing brilliant.

Easy to drink, but doesnt blow you away.

jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a bright pale yellow with lots of bubbles and a small white foamy head. Smells like chardonnay, banana and a little oak. A little citrus/lemon as well. Taste is very slightly tart lemon up front with some banana and spice leaving a very crisp clean aftertaste. Body is extremely light and carbonation is high. Russian River has wowed me again. I don’t love this brew, but expected to hate it as I do most Belgian pales. Not their best beer, but very easily drinkable.

Yellow hay color. Citrus fruity aroma. Taste is lighter than expected. Semi sweet, a bit like white wine. After taste is delicate. A fun Belgian ale. Drinkable.

(bottle - corked & caged 375 ml) Slightly hazy gold pour with a thin white head. Spicy aroma with some light fruit at the front and a nice yeasty finish. Citrus at the start with a sweet and spicy middle and a dry and slightly spicy finish.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Poured a thin layer of head on a hazy, golden colored body. The aroma is nice: pear, dry grain, bread and apple cider. Light and pleasant. The taste has a dull sweet pear flavor, some mild lemon bitterness and finishes with a touch of yeast. The texture is great. Crisp and fizzy. The taste lacked depth and complexity, but it was still an enjoyable drink.

Shot (134) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2013
From a bottle. Pours a hazy straw color. Head dissipates quickly, leaving a thin lace. Aromas of bread, orange, banana, clove. Upfront flavors are pepper, citrus and biscuit. Finish is bready with citrus. A dry finish--more than I’m used to with a wheat--and hoppier than average. Very nice. Crisp, hoppy and dry.

On tap at the brewery, this Belgian golden style was listed at 4.8 ABV. Hazy, straw-colored pour, yeast-forward nose, fruity esters prevailed over any clove or banana flavors. If you like your Belgians to show fruit rather than clove or banana, Redemption is indeed a redeeming choice.
