Bottle trade thanks Aaron. Pours golden with two fingers of a white head. Smells of citrus and cloves, taste is soft with light lemon and hints of wood or barrel. Not sure if they barrel aged this one but it has a hint of wood taste to me. Overall very good beer that has great carbonation and finishes dry leaving you wanting more.

375 ml bottle
In order to clear some space in the cellar I grabbed this still fresh bottle of Redemption and cracked it open on a lazy evening. Proving Russian River is more than just a branding ploy, this Belgian sparkles with qualities that should make it a daily drinker for those lucky enough to live on the West Coast.

Aroma / Appearance - A cloudy base mixes warm caramel with golden yellow. Slow falling white head melts like snowflakes. Light yeast, lemon, and citrus aspects tickle the air with a bright feel.

Flavor / Palate - A full body of sourdough bread, lemon butter, and citrus punch through the palate. A malty core gives smooth depth. A very easy drinking release compares favorably to anything you would run across in the Midwest including the best staples from Jolly Pumpkin. I will have to try future batches the next time I travel west.

slowrunner77 (5985) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2014
a pretty standard belgian ale to me. there’s some subtle fruits and spices in the aroma and flavor, but they’re too subtle. doesn’t look much different than a Coors. 8/11 has grown on me a bit over the years...not a RR favorite, but not bad either :) "

375 ml bottle I purchased at Russian River. Couldn’t read the stamp of the batch number. straw color with thin white head in a chalice. Aroma is citrus, sweet grain and light yeast.

The flavor is a direct copy of the aroma and has a moderate dry texture. Good yeast character. I paired this with a Chicken Cordon Blu dinner and I finished far to quickly. Mild and subtle with high drinkability. Can you say session? Pretty good.

orangesol (876) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Purchased and consumed at the Toronado in San Diego during a recent trip. Poured into a goblet.

A - Pours cloudy straw yellow with a thin film of white head leaving little to no lacing down the glass.

S - The nose is a tad spicy from all that yeast. The yeast leaves a dry impression that will carry on throughout the glass. A nice light funk provides a bit of earthiness and works well with some citrus fruits to offer some type of contrast to all that yeast.

T - My immediate reaction was to check and make sure I had the right bottle, this thing could easily be from Belgium. Light funk with a touch of zest up front but that flavor is quickly overtaken by a dry, overbearing, yeast presence. Some light spices and a bit of sweetness are an excellent contrast to the strong yeast core. Pretty good for a lighter beer. Glad I tried it.

M - Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Refreshing feel from the light funk, drying the pallet quickly. Finish is a bit chewy with some of it lingering long after consumption.

D - Pretty good. I enjoyed this one but it wasn’t mind blowing by any means. Solid stuff none the less. Glad I finally got to try this one.

Pours a hazy straw gold with a white head and lacing. It has a great aroma of biscuit and a bit of spice, the flavor is bread and malt up front with a nice, dry finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
