3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
