mcberko (19803) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Russian River, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out subtle Belgian yeast, cereal and toasted bread. Flavour is similar, bringing out cereal, Belgian yeast, and floral notes. Nice and dry on the palate, finishing zesty and florally. Not Russian River’s most adventurous Belgian beer, but very well-brewed nonetheless.

Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Draft - Light grains with a hint of lemon and coriander. Cloudy yellow with a rich white head. Perfumy and herbal, with a punch of hoppy bitterness. A very nice light Belgian ale.

3.8
brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 4, 2011
A: The pour is a very clear golden straw color with a nice big white head and plenty of sticky lacing. S: Quite the nose on this beer. Fruity and yeasty with plenty of citrus hops, giving a nice grapefruit note. A bit of weed and some regular grass, too. A little bit of unfermented wort smell right at the beginning, too. T: More bitter than I was expecting, but it’s welcomed. Grass, pine, and grapefruit peel seem an appropriate summary of the hop flavors that are present. A mild yeast driven fruitiness and spice. A solid bread base. M: Medium in body with a surprisingly lively carbonation from the growler. O: Not usually a big Belgian IPA fan, but this was much more IPA than it was Belgian. A great example of the style.

3.9
djd07 (16289) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with small frothy off white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is clove, spice, citrus. Medium mouth, similar flavors to nose, sweet, light finish, very good.

3.5
Scopey (16223) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Tap at RR Brewpub. It pours hazy straw yellow, with a white head. The nose is melon, red apple, dough and grass. The taste is red apple, melon, floral, hay, grass, leaf, dough, touch of tart fruit and tinned nectarine, with a bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. The tart fruit and bitterness balance it out. Nice.

3.9
bhensonb (15958) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Growler from Liz. Came with a RR glass too. Pours hazy orange gold with a frothy/foamy white head. Aroma very fresh fruit. Belgian yeast esters. Maybe a touch of earth or barnyard. Med + body. Flavor is somewhat earthy Belgian - spice, fruit esters, particularly some clove and banana. Maybe pineapple. It’s very fresh tasting, and I’m thinking there’s a hop mix which has fruit and earth hop aspects. Certainly not pine. Anyway it’s finishing dry and rather hoppy, tho the hop isn’t the harsh NW citrus burning style. Good ale.
