Partially cloudy straw colored beer with a fizzy white head that disappears quickly. Somewhat sweet nose of white sugar, lemon, and herbs. Taste is definitely sweet up front followed some citrus and sweeter fruits (mango?), topped off by a bit of spice. With perky carbonation, this is a refreshing beer and paired well with the spicy curry I was eating, but itís not something I would drink on its own due to the unbalanced sweetness.

12oz can at Scion pours a hazy yellow with some wispy white head. Nose is lemony, herbal, a little sweet, coriander, lime. Flavor is better, lime, lemon, grass, parsley, yeast, a little passion fruit, some malt, a little papaya. Sweet, slick finish. Interesting. Luau beer.

Ferris (3795) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
Can - Lemongrass, coriander and funky sweet yeast. Hazy yellow, head that disappears quickly. Sweet lemon, pepper and yeast. Not very grassy or as subtle as I had hoped, also more sweet than anything else.

355ml can from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Cloudy orange like pineapple juice - or like a headless Belgian wit. Smells like one too - light citrus. Taste has that slightly sour taste but not much duration - like Iíve mixed Hoegaarden with KŲlsch. Itís all a bit watery and lacking. Not my favourite style.

On draft. Hazy yellow pour, with a white head. Doughy, a bit sugary, banana esters, lemon grass, and some grain. Not very interesting.

Draft. Clear pale golden body. Fizzy, white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of lemongrass, raw grain, herbal hops, lemon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Citrus and lemon flavor.

Absolutely loved this one. Bit pricey, but great beer. Straw golden pour. Lots of subtle lemongrass notes blended with hints of barnyard and spices on the nose. Flavors bring out a classic Lost Abbey saison, thick body, yet goes down gently. Lemongrass melds beautifully with the saison yeast for a solid canned summer beer!
