A crystal-clear alternative to our barley and wheat-centric beers here at Deschutes. Made with Sorghum and hopped generously with whole-flower Cascade hops, this beverage might be just what you've been patiently waiting for...

On tap at the new PDX Pub. This was a bit much, something about these sorghum beers just doesn’t do it for me, maybe the sorghum, or could be the sorghum. Very herbal, sort of grassy and spicy towards the finish. Maybe with some more dryness it would have been crisper and more estery allowing the herbal flavors to lighten up, but it felt a bit heavy in a weird kinda way, like drinking cold tea, and not good ice tea, but just sorta funky cold tea.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 2, 2008
On tap at Deschutes Brewery in Portland, Oregon (first beer enjoyed at new location)--Poured a crystal orange-golden body with next to no head. Sicy, sweet, and flowery nose. Light, bitter, spicy, sorghum flavor. Smooth, crisp, refreshing. Best gluten-free beer to date.

1/1/08 with Bikesanbeer, and Deschutes was open even though we thought we it wouldn’t be open till the next day, 6th brewery of the trip. We ordered this for purely for the rating and for nothing more because we expected it to suck, and at least our expectations were met. Pours yellow clear with a bright white ring. Nose is weird and gross. Tasted like insipid sweetness and yuck.

First of all, I absolutely hate this style. However, Deschutes has managed to make the best one I have had by a longshot. Despite my low rating, most of these beers score under a 1/5 from me. Clear golden, somewhat artificial nose with detectable hops. Medium to light body, nonmalt flavor isn’t terrible.
