KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2012
375ml Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that steadily diminished down to a thin film with a small collar, producing excellent sheets of lacing. The aroma a was of a grain malt, mild herbal hops and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), banana, clove and a slight fruity ester (maybe green apple). The taste was a boldly yeasty with a mild grainy feel and a light fruity presence early on, and slowly became mildly bitter with a touch of citrus, a hint of banana and a light spicy ending. The flavor had a great longevity, with a nice yeasty taste that was left lingering while you got this slight spicy bite right to the back of the throat. Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a dry, watery texture and a medium carbonation. Overall another tasty beer from this brewer, although pretty average for the style it still possessed tons of flavor and without a high ABV. Yes, I think I could enjoy a few of these...

12 oz. bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours a hazy dark gold with the tiniest ring of a head. Fruit scents as well as some light clove and Belgian yeast. Mildly sweet flavor with all the things mentioned as scents softly melded together. Light bodied and somewhat dry. Very enjoyable.

Best Belgian ale (blonde) Iíve ever had. Second time enjoying it, first time rating. Great Belgian yeastiness, almost saison-esque. Soft carbonation with nice fluffy head and lacing. Hazy golden yellow color. Little orange zest and clove in aroma. Great stuff.

Brigadier (3225) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2014
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.
