COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Isnít it how it always works? A few brewers sit around tippling and waxing poetic about what-ifs, wild ideas and untapped dreams when one suddenly proclaims "why not?" So the Conflux series was born, bravely leaping corporate and geographic barriers to jointly explore uncharted beeratory. Cheers, fellow explorers, cheers.

Second in a series, this citrusy, smooth white IPA is a fortuitous meeting of Deschutesí hop skills and Boulevardís deft wheat touch. Whatís 1,800 miles when a great beer is at stake?

Says best before 1/11 but was still good for me. Good mix of wheat and grapefruit for aroma. Body yellow with white head and some sugar coat lace on glass. Flavor of grapefruit jucie and fro a night shifter hit the spot. Refreshing brew and enjoyable.

Really nice brew. Sampled in a big bottle in Boulder. Pours deep orange with a thin head on it. Decent carbonation but comes out really nice and clear. Quality quality malts.

(#46) 22oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Appearance: Golden yellow with a slight haze, white foam head. Aroma: Lemon, banana, orange, coriander, grass, pepper, spicy. Taste: Sweet citrus that transforms to dry hops. Honey, cereal, pepper, clove, and grapefruit. Palate: Med. bodied. Smooth and sweet at first but gets rather bitter on finish and aftertaste. Overall: Itís alright, a little too far on the bitter scale for my taste though. I previously tried this on draft last summer and I remember the taste being more enjoyable for me. Interesting to see what No. 3 will be.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Sample at Eurostash III tasting on 01/12/2012: The beer is a hazy golden color with a medium rocky white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of lemons, yeast and mild hops. Medium body with flavors of Belgian yeast, citrus, wheat and hops. The finish is earthy hops and yeast with a lingering sweetness. Above average overall.

Bottle shared by a friend. Hazy yellow pour with a thick white head. Aroma of coriander, citrus and sweet malt. Coriander and lemon zest flavor with maltiness before a grassy hop finish.

Tried side by side with Boulevardís version. This one has more of a head and lacing (the other has none) and is just slightly less deep yellow. Good carbonation. Preserved lemon nose plus floral hops...good but not as powerful as Iíd like. Honey and citrus with solid hop backbone. Hop bitterness and sweet malts play perfectly on the finish. Really interesting. Love the hops with the white beer core.

freeofthoughts (668) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is lemony and hoppy. The taste is similar with a smooth Belgian wit taste that is right on. The hops are a little mellowed but good and hay like. Overall a good brew.

Bomber. Aroma is of cascade hops and orange peel. Color is hazy straw with a nice white cap and plenty of floaties.Taste is of coriander and orange peel and finishes with a strong grapefruit/lemony dry bitterness. Not digging the combination of the hops with the belgian wit style. Iím a little disappointed with the offering from Deshchutes.

Delicious. Seriously one of the best beers iíve ever had. Itís a Great Wit Beer flavor with orange, citrus and clove with notes of ginger, melon, yeast and pepper. There is however an additional layer of flavor, there are some hops up this beer.
