COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A zesty golden hefeweizen infused with a potent smack of Lemongrass. The flavor is crisp, tart and refreshing; just the call for these dog days of summer!

Bottle from Bruisin’. Holy lemongrass! This pours a very cloudy yellow with a giant fizzy head that slowly fades away. Tons of lemongrass in the aroma and the flavor. There is a bit of yeast and rough wheaty notes somewhere beneath the hugely potent lemongrass. This is kind of like drinking a lozenge. Dial it back a few notches and this might be refreshing. . .drinkable at least.

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.

jsquire (3499) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Hazy yellow color with a frothy white head. Banana clove nose. Lots of banana, clove, spice, some bubblegum, and nice lemon citrus notes. Some doughy yeast. Very refreshing.

Draft at the Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills, NC. Pours a hazy yellow body with no head. Aroma is soapy, clean citrus and lemon and zest. Mouthfeel is smooth and thin with notes of soap, lemon zest, and clean citrus flavors.

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.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Serving: Draft. 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.

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.
