Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & garthicus -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Batch 004. Pours a very hazy golden-orange with huge floaties and an average size lasting white head. Aroma’s fruity, yeasty, malty, grassy and spicy. Lots of "y" in that last sentence, oh well. Nice spicy flavour with malt, yeast and light grassy hops. Medium bodied. Great stuff -- easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Batch 04 acquired via trade with Taverner...THANKS MARK!!! Really enjoyed this one. Nothing remarkable in the nose, just a lot of Belgian yeast and a bit of earthiness. A nice refreshing beer with a taste reminiscent of lemongrass and grapefruit...tart and citrusy. Lacing lines the glass from top to bottom. SOLID.

Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Garthicus, courtesy of Harry. Light yellow, small white head. Some chunks and bubbles as well in there. Nice zesty aroma - smells very fresh, yeasty, with a hint of fresh cut grass, dandelion. Good taste - very refreshing, zesty, lemon, coriander. Nice simple drinkable extremely well made stuff.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle (750ml). My bottle shared with garthicus and blankboy, via Irishboy - ayyyyy, Richard!. Light clear copper pour, large frothy-foamy lasting white head, plenty of huge floaties in the bottom of the bottle. Mild light sweet blond aroma, clover, timothy and wildflowers, funky yeast but lightly so - there is NO bestiality in this beer whatsoever you bastards!. Taste - grassy, light yeast, tupalev’s friggin dandelions intrude on me so much I have nothing further to add here .... Light, mildly acidic, sweet linger, real clover pungency - really good, easy-drinking.

Thanks to HogTownHarry, with thanks by proxy to Irishboy. Shared with Harry, Jeff and Paul. Batch 004. Appearance: Golden colour, nice white head, some floaties in there too! Aroma: Nettles and grass, some hops and some grapefruit. Like the aroma of an anxious sheep. Flavour: Bitter and zingy, some lemon and sherbet. Finish is short and tangy. Not bad at all!

pantanap (3350) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2008
750ml bottle (batch 3)..... pours a transparent clear golden brown with a significant hefty sopay white head..... light grassy and bready lemony citrus notes make up the nose. most of which was subdued...... flavors kept inline with more grass and a crisp malt backbone. carbonation was very lively and sprite and kept the mouth tingley. very drinkable and sessionable but really nothing too distinctive. not a bad belgian though.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2008
750ml bottle. batch 3. about a year old. thanks pantanap for sharing. pours hazy straw with white head. nose of pilsner malt, spicey hop aroma. flavors has some spice and leather hop notes, grainy and biscuity. crisp, dry, and straight forward. good but i fresh is probably key with this one.

A- Pours a clear golden yellow with quite a bit of carbonation apparent. Very little head that fades with a small amount of lacing. S- Smell is a bit sour, citrusy, with a hint of spiciness. T- Tastes of belgian yeast, spices, slight sour notes, lemony citrus. M- A bit thin but very crisp. D- Delicious but a bit complex and not the most drinkable session brew but none the less it went down pretty easy.

750ml Batch 04 Bottled 12/28/07 Recieved this in a recent trade with jhenry04, thanks Jason! Redemption pours a polished brass with tiny particles that the torrent of large natural carbonation bubbles keep suspended. A bubbly two + finger cottony white head appeared on the pour and fell to a pillowy creaminess after some time leaving thick spotty lacing on the way down. The carbonation keeps the head in place throughout. My nose is greeted with all sorts of fruitiness and spices. Green apple skins, underipe banana, and a touch of sweet pineapple toward the back. The yeast brings along a solid sprinkling of white pepper. Each swirl of the glass briefly brings forward some bubble gum. A robust nose for such a low abv. Reminds me of a quality tripel without the booziness. The flavor follows along the lines the nose suggested although not quite as bold. The fruitiness really comes together well although a little muddled at times. A dusty yeastiness presents itself on the swallow. The bold yeastiness really brings this brew toghether nicely over the pale maltiness. The mouthfeel is where it should be. A healthy carbonation keeps the light body flowing. A slightly chalky finish comes about before the bone dryness. I love a nice dry Belgian, whether it’s a saison or pale. The refreshing quality and lower abv. make this a no brainer session beer. Good for a warm Summer day. Another good beer from Russian River. They never fail to dissapoint. They hit the nail on the head with a style that’s tough to come across. I wouldn’t mind another bottle or two of Redemption. 4/19/08
