Russian River Redemption

May 30, 2013

Overall Grade:A

Creamy Blonde Ale.

Drinkable from start to finish. Begins a little tart and citrusy before kicking into a tingle of champagne-esque carbonation and finishing dry. More sweet than bitter.

Well-above-average across the board, Redemption is flavorful without overwhelming the drinker with sweetness or too much of any one ingredient. It's a super drinkable, tasty champagne for me, which is a good thing. Rich in flavor but light-bodied still. What's more, it's only a 5.15% ABV beer. I drank an early-April bottle in late-May.

Slightly tart, yeasty, wheat aroma.
