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!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Mildly Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Most Light, No Head, No Lacing, Bubbly
S: Lemongrass, Yeast, Mild Sugar
T: Lemongrass, Yeast, Mild Sugar, Mildly Tinny
M: Poor Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet
Overall, I have had this beer before and it liked it but this can seemed poorly carbonated, mild of flavor and had a metallic aftertaste, which I started noticing with their coconut porter too. I tihnk maybe Maui is starting to run their course.

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 I’ve mixed Hoegaarden with Kölsch. It’s all a bit watery and lacking. Not my favourite style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
