COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Isn’t 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 Deschutes’ hop skills and Boulevard’s deft wheat touch. What’s 1,800 miles when a great beer is at stake?

1 pint 6oz. BTL. Pours blond with heavy froth and smells of bitter sweetness. Very lively palate and refreshing taste, The finish is subduded but nice, seems to be a great conflux between Deschutes and Boulevard Brewing Co. Execellant Beer!

Wow, a super spicy almost Belgian-wit like aroma. This is very smooth, a nice spice and really good. This beer could sneak up on you. Really nice. On tap at Big Dog’s

This was a fun one...I know that there is a fair amount of hops and that there was a good amount of citrus to this beer. I paired this beer with a shrimp and crab pizza with cheese that starts with a G and it was amazing. It serves as a great compliment to lighter foods and greens. The hops and the citrus compliment each other well.

Very nice collaboration. Starts and ends with citrus, but this is far from a one dimensional beer. Elements of wheat, coriander, yeast, and lemon. Tried at the Zona Rosa beer festival in 2011.

Hoppy saison? Yes please. Perfect golden fine white foam. Hints of coriander trace neroli and maybe white sage. This beer is pure magic. Drinkable belgian substantial session. Spicy noble hop finish clean feel soft lightly creamy. This collaboration is it’s own dog ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Without yeast, it has a very clear bright gold body with a thin white head. Amazing aroma of citrus hops, coriander, fresh wheat, Flowery, and delightfully full. Nice big palate with a long lasting finish of wit spices. Flavor is big on wheat, but also plenty of big citrus hops, flower hops, clove, and a subtle Belgo yeast funk. Really good brew.

Excellent beer! Pours hazed yellowish pineapple color with a lasting high density head. Smells of white spices and piney hops. Medium full nectar with superb carbonation creating a heavy cream milkshake like texture. This is a fight between spice and citrus rind. The intermingling of the two create an amazing union while remaining distinctly separate. There’s a serious hop component that bitters this high malty extract sufficiently leaving behind a mild aspirin burn. The finish is long with mild sweetness and aspirin. Killer brew!

Bomber Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with stiff white head. Immediate citrus hop aroma with some spice in the back. Taste is crisp and clear spice with very noticeable coriander. Finish is clean. Really clean and refreshing beer.

Aroma is heavy citrus, lemon peel, corriander, floral. Appearance is lemon yellow and hazy. Almost white enough to be a Wit. Medium white head. Taste is..... wow.... very interesting. Grapefruit, lemon, coriander, floral, bubblegum,sage, pepper, tangy. Lots of flavor going on here. Palate is medium. Crisp, hops bitterness lingers and holds on but does not overpower strong malt and aroma hops flavors. Well balanced and very complex. Overall, this is an impressive beer. Not what I was expecting. They took two styles, blended them, and created a unique style. Rivals any of the best American beers IMO.
