This is a much talked about one from Russian River. Well a lot of their beers are talked about a lot. But I saw it and decided to pick up a bottle when in PA. I’m starting to realize I’m not that big of a fan of the golden Belgian styled beers. It’s not that I think they are bad. It’s just that a lot of them taste the same to me. I prefer the darker Belgians and the funky ones. This one is slightly different but still kind falls there. I think for the style it is better than others I have had but I probably won’t go out of my way to get it again.
Sorry about the pictures. I just couldn’t get any good ones to come out right.
Overall Grade – B-
