Chainbreaker 12oz, poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Best Before 6-28-12.
A: Hazy yellow gold, fluffy white head.
S: Lots of piney, citrusy hops, semi-pungent, wheat, lemon, definite funk (almost B.O.), Belgian yeast esters, lots of Wit beer characteristics...fruity, rotting pear, fruit flesh.
T: Lemon zest, citrus pith, wheat and malt, bready...earthy grass, funk, Belgian yeast notes, piney hops contribute as well...fruity notes are more buried here but still present.
MF: Light to moderate bitterness, soft clingy dryness, light to medium body.
O: What I would expect from a Deschutes Belgian/White IPA. More hops would be welcome, but overall its still a refreshing and drinkable beer.

on tap at Punch Bowl Social, Portland
Haxy lemon with white film.
Wit nose heavy on the lemon.
Saltines, lemon curd, big yeasty bite, and lemon hops to end.
Wheaty finish and dry waxy linger.
Light, oily, round.
For all the talk of a new style, very wit-y. Cascade and Citra, but they are mostly missing, or let’s say I’ve had hoppier Belgians. Falls between two stools, badly.
