It only seemed fitting that after featuring Russian River Damnation in December (posted here), January's California beer would be its sister, Redemption. A single style beer and labeled a blonde, I was skeptical but it isn't a lightweight. Mild spices and fruits, very drinkable - it is easy to see why it is a sister beer to the Damnation.
I enjoyed mine the other night with a salmon burger with carmelized onions and herbed goat cheese.... Very fitting for the recent warm weather and Santa Ana winds. Thanks to my Whole Foods beer guy, Alex, for digging this out of the secret stash for me!Salut!
