(10/28/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. 5.48%. Clear golden color with a white head. Aroma of malt, fruits (a bit of apple, peach, tropical fruits noes) and spicy notes. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel notes, fruits and a drier finish. Medium-bodied. Pleasant.

Nik925 (791) - USA - DEC 7, 2008
Light in color and palate, but clean. Strong clove flavor with a bit of lemon, enough to almost hide the small bite of metal. Similar to Damnation but not as good and mellower and toned down.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Draft at RR brewpub. Pours a clear light golden/yellow color with a bone white head. Aroma is intense Pilsner malt. Very malty and clean. Cereal, crackers, fresh barley on top of some subtle but noticeable fruity esters. The malt stands out more than the yeast character though you can tell this is a Belgian beer its just cleaner than normal. Taste is crisp, super dry, thirst quenching. Fruitiness is in the taste as well but it is subtle and not intense. Quick, bone dry finish. This is very quaffable. I like this style of beer and this is a good example.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2010 This is only my third Russian River beer but it doesnt take long to figure out these guys know what theyre doing. Thanks to zythum for trading this to me. Pours a golden color with a huge fluffy off-white head. Pretty good retention. The aroma is nice, yeast, light fruits and flowers with malt. Everything seems to blend together quite nicely with this. Slightly sweet malty flavor, some grass and straw or somewhat of a barnyard taste, bananas and cloves with some spices kicking in towards the finish. This is light but theres enough there to set it apart. Good one, I look forward to trying more from Russian River. Re-Rate 11/9/09. Batch 6 courtesy of cloudskipper. Sometimes simple is a good thing. Golden color huge lively white head. Very soft and slick, refreshing, nice crisp spice to compliment the fruity and floral flavors. I like Damnation but I think this one is even better.

kramer (6576) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2008
25 oz bottle, Batch 004, via cloudskipper. Pours a beautiful clear gold body with a frothy white head. Excellent retention due to the vigorous carbonation. Great delicate pale malt nose, no signs of being overly doughy or sticky. Sweet perfume and light hay, just clean and perfect. The flavor is just as soft and delicate as the nose. No funkiness or weirdness like the Batch 1. Floral notes with dried straw and light yeastiness. So clean and soft, this is better than the Batch 1. Mouthfeel is soft and light bodied with perfect refreshing gentle carbonation. Lingering clean pale maltiness. This was just great in its cleanliness and simplicity. A perfect example of a beer that doesn’t try to just beat you over the head with flavor.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 18, 2008
#5 - Gold, creamy white head. Soft funky sour floral nose rides undercurrents of juicy pineapple and vanilla oak. Toasted oaken vanilla core expands into flavors of sour citrus peel and hints of dry piney florals. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Unbelievable stuff

Batch 004. Gold pour with a snappy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and apples. Flavor is similar with some spice and just a touch of cheese. Light dry finish.
