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.

Well, every rose has its thorn they say… Deschutes is no different and here's the weak (weakest) link I've found in their generally incredible beer assortment. Not bad by any mean but just not as balanced as I'm used to with this brewery. It's not about the bitterness (I am a huge fan of IPAs) neither about the belgian thing (I love belgian triples too) but I feel like drinking two beers in each sip here. They're both good, but they're just not part of the same beer… I guess this is still a very decent score though...

On tap at the Local Taphouse I believe, not sure when. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a pale straw colour with a bit of cloud. Head is white, a thin rim of lace around the edge. Looks alright.
Smells piney, slightly rubbery. Yeah, fair Belgian notes with orange peel, spice and sprucey notes. Nice freshness. Pleasant.
Taste is bit more Belgian I'd say. Fair orange peel with some dry spice notes. White pepper, coriander, some light rubber. Touch of pine resin. Not much IPA but pleasant enough.
A bit of fizz, quite drying on the back. Not bad.
Nice enough drop, could use bigger hop notes.
