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!

Thanks to Sam for sharing this one. Hazy gold pour thick white head and spotty lace. Lemony aroma. Waxy mouth-feel. Lemon, grains, spice, and banana.

Sampled at Brewgrass. This really could have gone either way -- great unique beer or an experiment gone wrong. Luckily it was the former. I loved this beer! Hazy golden pour, white head. A bit of banana and clove as you’d expect from a hefe, but much more lemongrass (and, well, lemon and grass). This was tart and refreshing; a real oasis of a unique fresh light beer at the festival. Only question: I wonder if I would get sick of this if I drank more than a pint? Somewhat irrelevant, I guess, as even novelty beers have their place. I suspect this brew is more than that, thought.

Stopped in here on the way up to Corolla. Appearance was quite cloudy and yellow. Aroma was like a real wheat beer, but the banana and clove were lessened by the lemongrass aroma. I was surprised how big the lemomgrass smell was. This one went down pretty good. I don’t think I could drink this all afternoon long, though, The lemongrass did tend to get stronger.

Another nice offering at the pub. Very lemony sour flavor gives it a very refreshing quality. Great after a day at the beach.

Draft at brewpub. Smell of wheat and lemon. very refreshing. Fruity taste with a hint of lemon. Good spring beer. Wish I had some right now.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2008
On tap at brew pub. Poured cloudy gold in color with thin white head. Aroma of STRONG lemongrass. Taste is the same with hints of straw, ginger, and bananas. The finish was overall slightly tart and dry but, overall the lemongrass taste just consumed everything else a little too much.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Tap poured a clear yellow color with white head. Aroma was heavy lemon with a touch of wheat. The flavor was like a lemongrass shot with not much of a body or beer taste at all. Finish was dry.

I enjoyed this thirst quenching hefe which definitely has a strong lemongrass flavor going on for it and some crispy sour qualities along with not too much sweetness. I was surprised I was given a lemon to put into it, I’m not sure it could get any boost there. The body isn’t too complex thought but it makes for a great summer beer inside a brewpub which lacks A/C where you wait 45 minutes.

Hazy deep straw pour, with a decent head and lace. The nose is spot-on for banana. Banana flavors, with lemon zest, wheat and clove... well-integrated. The clove provides a lightly numbing finish. It has a smooth mouthfeel with a light body. Since it is a late summer seasonal, I wish it were a bit crisper. Otherwise, quite well done. A sleeper from OBBS.
