Best by 10/20/14:

Pours clouded lemon-drop yellow with a fluffy white head. Trailing lacing sticks.

The smell is of wheat tang, orange peel, lemon, coriander and leafy notes.

The taste of sweettart mixes with spice and citric bitterness in the refreshing finish.

Creamy smooth, this is an enjoyable unique brew. Witbier meets American IPA, and it works!

Deschutes Chainbreaker has a thin, white head and an opaque, brilliant, gold-yellow appearance, with a small amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is a very bright, one could describe it, or bursting, citrus and white bread, sugary smell, and the flavor is of sweet orange, white bread, coriander, a bit of white pepper, and orange juice (think of a magnolia). Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Deschutes Chainbreaker finishes tart and highly drinkable.

Poured into a pint.
Great Beligian yeast strain right off the bat.
Lemony, Spiced, Coriander
Nice hop aroma, and mild bitterness
Easy drinking, belgain-style white ale.
Delicious and would highly recommend.
