COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2014 Beer Camp Across America Release.

As longtime friends, Russian River brewmaster Vinnie Cilurzo and our own Brian Grossman are no strangers to brewing experiments. While looking for inspiration for this collaboration, Vinnie and Brian decided to honor the creations of legendary Belgian brewer Yvan De Baets with their own hop-forward American-Belgian mash-up.

From complex Belgian-inspired styles to American wild ales and hoppy Double IPA’s, Russian River always pushes boundaries while respecting technique and quality. Co-owners Vinnie and Natalie Cilurzo are longtime friends of Sierra Nevada and they always have a six-pack of Pale Ale in their fridge at home.

Drank from the bottle because I’m on my porch and forgot my glass in the kitchen. Aroma is delicious! Banana and Clove. I can’t say I smell any hops, but I sure taste the nice balance bitterness. Palate has a really bright carbonation that finishes slightly sweet with the banana Clove lingering. Really good Belgian!

Draft Pint. I am not even a big fan of this style of beer but it was a great drinking brew. I think it would be an amazing partner to a few jalapeno poppers and hot wings!

No matter what the taste, any collaboration between russian river and sierra demands your respect. As does any Beer Camp beer. But this one has the benefit of tasting great. Blend of Russian River’s belgian chops and Sierra’s hop bite, it’s awesome!

Sierra Nevada / Russian River Beer Camp Yvan the Great is a one off you have to try. Blonde pour with a fluffy white head giving off a wonderful tropical aroma. Taste is a nice balance of malt and aromatic hops that linger on the palate. Yvan the Great is a just that -- get it while you can.

Straw gold, nice head, good clarity. Nose is spicy/yeasty, hint of banana. Flavor is same plus intense herbaceousness, pear, clove-y phenols, pepper, lemon. Dry, elegant, delicious. Tons of finesse showing here with so many well integrated layers of flavor.

A great Belgian ale aroma. This is tasty. Very spicy Belgian ale. Could easily drink a lot of these. A great beer to finish of the 12-pack, maybe even my favorite of the group.
