A lighter, but full flavored summer ale with a balanced malt profile and a harmonious blend of 4 hops. Aged for 6 weeks in Oregon Pinot Noir barrels and dry hopped with Liberty to create a distinctive citrus finish.

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom Third Anniversary Barrel Aged Fest. Pours out a straw/orange topped with a white head. Aroma was of light citrus, fruit, and sweetness. Taste was more of the hops and the Pinot gave it a little fruit twang. A fun one from Deschutes.

On tap at the Bend brewpub in August 2009. Pours a slightly-reddened golden amber color with a decent amount of pinot in the nose. Everything about it was quite nice, and the taste was that of the Twlight with remnants of the wine; however, this one was a little more sessionable than I would have liked, i.e. I would have liked a stronger barrel-aged beer, although I did like the concept and the beer as it was was very drinkable.

Sampled at the Portland brewpub. Pours a hazy, pale orange. Nose is nice, citrus, hay, wet whole hops. Flavor is sweet, lightly tart, hay, white grapes, white pepper, coriander. I expected a bit more.

Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom’s Third Anniversary Barrel Aged Fest... Poured golden/orange with a white head. Well carbonated, fizzy. The Pinot added some fruity depth, but didn’t impart too much on the overall flavor. Hops stuck out strongly, candied sugars, carrot-like vegetables and lots of citrus acidity.
