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!

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.

A fantastic beer for a hot summer day. I sampled this beer two days after Hurricane Isabel...then promptly ordered several pint glasses worth! Very light and refreshing with a tartness infused by the lemongrass. Finishes clean and begs you to order another!

Kinz (3684) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2006
Per the bar manager, they only do this one once a year, and it is a favorite of the owner when it comes around. Bright hazy yellow, decent head. Slight lemon and citrus aroma. Flavor was a straightforward wheat with notes of lemon and hay, rather pleasant. Nice mouthfeel. Many (including the bar manager I spoke to), seemed to think this beer was a lemon blast, but I thought it nicely balanced. Enjoyable brew.

Scubatrip (609) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2005
On tap at the Brewgrass Festival in Asheville, they weren’t lying when they named it. Very lemon, almost to the point of lemon scented lysol. Not a fan.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2005
Beer #6 at the World Beer Festival in Durham. Another surprising beer, and distinct among the hundreds of brews available that day. Really crisp, refreshing, like a wheat beer ought to be.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Draught at the World Beer Festival, Durham, NC. Cloudy yellow color with fluffy white head. Lemony, yeasty nose and flavor. An unusual, tasty beer.

Suttree (5879) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Cloudy, pale yellow. Smells like, well, lemongrass. Familiar wheat "wang", and them some lemon flavors. Kinda artifical wheat flavors, actually. Biting, dry finish. A lot good, but quite a bit of bad, as well. Interesting, but ultimately can’t recommend. Sampled at 2004 Asheville Brewgrass Festival.
