12 oz bottle - Nice looking beer. Smells like a cool summer evening. Tastes like fresh pears. It makes me happy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden color. Aroma is grassy hops, some pale malts, lightly fruity. Medium to light body, pretty bland. Balanced like most of their beers but not a lot going on.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rich gold with decent head. Nice citrusy-honeyed hop aroma with notes of tangerine. Flavor is light graininess and mild hops, slightly stale. Decent, easy drinking, with some nice and interesting qualities, but on the whole, underwhelming.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2014 Nice amber color with a one inch off-white head. Big piney hop aroma. Fair amount of lacings. Taste is pinapple-grapfruit hops with some sweet malts. The hops dominate but mellows as the glass is drained. Overall a nice summer brew. Sessionable.

mildly hoppy smell with some light sweetness. Golden color. Initial taste is hops then tamed with malt. It starts stong and then really mellows out towards the aftertaste.

Belgian yeasty smell, earthy vegetable + grass. Slight perfumey citrus hops aroma. Minor spice notes (coriander, cinnamon, anise).
Bland flavor of lemon, mild malts.
Mediocre hops in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A hazy pale golden beer tih a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of citrus, while the flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of citrus, leading to a dry wheaty finish. The body is thin.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent and unoffensive, still not the greatest beer to ever get packaged from Deschutes. There is just not a whole lot of flavor here, a bit of watered down grainy maltiness and some fresh floral hop flavors, but that is it, the finish drop right off into nothing.
