Bottle, from the brewpub that I picked up back in July. Batch 005. Super nice, clean, golden color. Nice fruity aroma. Flavor is light, refreshing and tasty. Kind of reminds me of a cross breed between a Belgian ale, a Hefe and a Pilsener. Good stuff.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - SEP 26, 2008
On tap at the brewpub, chalkboard states this is 5.48%Clear light golden with a one finger off-white head, down to a thick film and thicker ring. Aroma of bananas and spicy Belgian yeast, as well as some light herbal and peppery hops. Flavor adds a bit of earthy bitterness, finishing semi-dry with some cereal grain and bitterness peaking around a 3. Burps lightly herbal hops. Light body with some light carbonation. Only a few breaks of film in the glass to make it lacing, and not a sheet. Not ungodly complex, but not what this beer was going for. I?d gladly drink this with most meals.

Draught. Musky, buttery nose with spicy yeast character. Clear golden brown with a thin head but good lacing. Opens sweet with a buttery middle into a dry finish with light fruit presence. Good depth with a chewy but dry mouthfeel.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy blond with a thin head. Decent aroma of yeast. Pretty light beer, surprised Russian River makes such a light 6% beer. Good flavor though, worth a try.

Just received the dreaded Shipping exception from fed/ex. I needed to drink something really good so I went with this one. Thanks flexabull for this one A batch 4 bottle poured into a snifter produced a good two fingers worth of white head. That turns to a thick lace that tops of a clear golden orange body Nice yeasty aroma fills my nose. With some nice sweet fruity smells as well as a spice (pepper) note in the end. Yes it’s light and refreshing The flavors are very light on the tongue as well bananas and citrus flavors are evident up front. The spiciness of the hops comes of well and keeps this brew extremely well balanced. Light mouth feel and good carbonation keeps this thing very drinkable This is now my favorite session brew of all time. It is great on a hot day and I would love to be close enough to make this one of my session brews.
