Originally tagged as a "Special Batch" release, when we first tried River Session we felt it came across as the sort of beer that, perhaps even more so than the Brett Pale in their lineup, you might expect to find always on at the brewery. So we consider it fortuitous that the beer later became a constant at Watts River, receiving a branding tweak and joining the brewery's core range.

It's another hazy pale golden beer, one that has Kiwi hop Riwaka at its core, from which it delivers a pretty punchy hop aromas that flit between limey citrus and curry leaf. As seems to be the case with the Healesville brewery's beers, it's clean and lean on the palate, with a citrusy, slightly herbal bitterness that's tight rather than aggressive. Well, it is a session ale, after all...
