Russian River Redemption

CIMG5222

Here’s a new Russian River beer for me. This Blonde ale is quite low on alcohol, and the price is pretty decent. Let’s give it a try.

Stats:
Belgian Pale Ale. 4.8% ABV. California.

Pale golden color. Head fades fairly quickly.

Lovely nose, reminds one of Duvel. It’s got a Belgian yeast component with a ton of fruit. Lots of light fruits coming through. There’s a lovely honey and melon component with a little bit of black pepper.

Fairly light mouthfeel and high on the carbonation.

Light fruits and honey coming through. Getting that melon which transitions to a black pepper spice finish. There’s a nice hop profile coming through here, as well.

Just a tasty brew. It’s not on the level of their sours with me, but this is a much more nuanced and light beer. 90 points.
