3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
