UPDATED: OCT 11, 2015 "the only miss for Deschutes in recent memory. nothing wrong with it, but it was quite boring, especially when sampled before and then with the far superior Ivanna Weiss. Like a light, simplistic version of that beer. Danny Devito to TWINS Ahhhhnold."

jercraigs (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2010
2010-06-27. Crisp dark yellow body, small white head. Interesting mix of a zippy tart grain character, with estery touches, mild fruity character. 6+ Modest aroma is sort of grainy, brief florals and yeast character. 6+ Average palate. Bit odd, but enjoyable. On tap at Deschutes, Portland

[2989-20100627] Tap. Yeasty little paper aroma. Slightly hazy, pale orange body with a quick foamy white head. Mild yeasty flavour has hints of tangerine and a bitter lemon finish. Medium body is bitter. Nice and mild. An interesting concept, would like to see more breweries try things like this.
