3.85/5 rDev -4.5%
on-tap @ the brewery in hood river
Served in a lovely 16oz non-shaker pint (bought one to bring home) - a light straw-golden body, clear and clean with a light ring of white foam. Crisp and hoppy, light citrus, lemon, crackery malt, some belgian yeast characteristics. Very refreshing.

The beer pours a light gold color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is unusual (but as this is fringefest...), as I get some dry citrus, hints of butter and some underlying grain flavor. The flavor profile replicates the nose, but is a bit odd. I get dry dry citrus, tons of green onion and pepper. Also, while the beer is medium bodied, there's a considerable alcohol bite in the finish that I'm not digging.
Mehhh... not one of my favorites during fringefest.
Tried recently again at the Bier Stein. The current rendition seems to have a lot of the same characteristics I asoociate with a good pilser (some light honey, bread dough and cracker on the nose, with some light citrus as well). The flavor profile is more of the same, and the beer is pretty light. Still not one of my favorites from Pfriem I'm afraid.

I wasn't planning on stopping by, but while walking along the HR waterfront, I noticed Pfriem just there, and on my way back, I had to stop in to check them out.
Clear golden yellow, dense white head, nice retention and lacing. Nose has a nice crisp hop oil character, with pine oil, citrus zest, pear, orange blossom honey and guava. This is very nice! There is a touch of malt, but it blends well with the fruity hop flavors. Palate is decent, I feel like there's too much mineral character that gets in the way of the hops. Moderate bitterness, there's all the fruity complexity of the nose with a moderate mineral char- I wonder if they use simcoe hops? Sweetness is mild, palate is medium light and finish is pleasingly bitter and oily with a little mineral character. Nice stuff.
