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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(#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: It’s 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.

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.

Tried side by side with Boulevard’s 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 I’d 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.

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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. I’m a little disappointed with the offering from Deshchutes.
