Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Combining Boulevard’s expertise at making Belgian-style witbiers with Deschutes’ skill at brewing hop-forward ales, this beer puts a new spin on the idea of collaborative brewing. Working from a single recipe, brewmasters Steven Pauwels of Boulevard and Larry Sidor of Deschutes have produced two separate beers, more than 1,600 miles apart.

Despite the beer’s shared recipe, each of the two versions possess a unique identity, reflected in their naming and packaging. Boulevard’s half of the equation, christened Collaboration #2, is available throughout our selling region in both 750mL bottles and in kegs. Brewed at their Bend, Oregon facility, Deschutes’ effort is the second beer in their new Conflux collaboration series, and is available throughout their selling region in kegs and 22-ounce bottles.  http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/63/71419

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

P:  Huge mountain of white rocky head that towers a full 3 fingers. Nice webbing on the glass. A hazy golden body with streaming bubbles and floaters.  

S:  Spices of coriander and pepper. Musty aroma with delicate citrus aroma that shows off the wit side of this beer. Once swirled the lemongrass becomes apparent. 

T/M:  Taste follows the nose with floral hops.  Nice chewy body with a perfect amount of carbonation.  Fruity and vibrant flavors finishing dry with a peppery bite. 

O:  Delicious and complex all the flavors merry well together. The floral hops really bring this collaboration together.  I'm really glad I grabbed this up.
