3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Outer Banks Brewing Station. Pours hazy pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is of light citrus and mild funk which I attribute to something in the beer and nothing to do with the freshness. The flavor contains notes of lemon and orange paired with some grassy notes and just a hint of soapiness. Light bodied and refreshing. Pretty good.

I didn’t like this one. Lemongrass was too much of a kick / strangeflavor. Othewise, had traits of a good hefeweizen. Was looking forward to this on a hot day.

500ml bottle from Chip’s in Kill Devil Hills. Pours a hazy straw color with a nice large white head. Aroma is wheat, yeast, banana, and lemon. Flavor is really heavy on the lemongrass. Very wheaty with banana and mild yeastiness. Medium-light on the palate with some very mild lemony tartness. Overall not a bad beer for the style, though I am not a huge fan of the style.

Hazy yellow pour with off white head and lace. Wheaty aroma. Candy, corrinader, wheat flavor. A tad thin and foamy for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Hazy, deep gold color with a small, foamy, white head.
Aroma: Banana, wheat, yeast, and lots of lemongrass. Pretty good nose!
Flavor: Heavy on the lemongrass almost to the point of being a little like Pledge furniture polish. An otherwise mild taste with a hint of butter in there.
Palate: Medium, soft carbonation with a light mouthfeel and a medium-short, lemony finish.
Overall: All of the lemongrass gets to be a bit much as you continue through the glass. It does have good body and seems to be well put together though.

2.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap 07-19-09, second trip to the brewery. A nice hazy yellow with little almost no head. The aroma is fantastic a punch in the face of lemongrass. The taste was average as it reminded me a little it of a citronella candle. Novelty off it wore off quick.

A watery texture. The finish is solid with a clean aftertaste. This is a great refreshing beer on a hot Carolina day.
