12 oz bottle poured into Dogfish Head tulip pint glass
A- Poured hazy golden with a 2 finger white head. Not much lacing.
S- Getting bubble gum and lemon zest.
T- Taste follows nose. Getting bubble gum, lemon zest, and possibly coriander. Refreshing taste, but not too complex. Could be a bit more hoppy.
M- Mouthfeel is light and smooth. Quick drinker. Perfect for a hot summer day.
O- Pretty good, but expected a bit more from Deschutes. Could be hoppier, but possibly this is exactly what they were going for. I could see this being very refreshing on a hot day in the summer. It is also nice to see Deschutes kicking out a new brew. Too bad some of their pub only beers are not in bottles.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
