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!

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!

Smells and tastes of wheat and lemon. Very light, not all that flavorful and weak body. As a wheat beer, it does not compare to better wheat beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at the brewpub it is a cloudy golden color with a slight head. The aroma is of wheat and lemongrass. The taste is strong with a hint of lemon

Tap. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head, creamy with good lacing. aroma is wheat, lemon, a bit vegetal and lightly spicy. Flavor is definitely lemon grass. Medium sweet, wheat, minimal bitterness. Light body, quite interesting.

TheBeerGod (5164) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Draft at Outer Banks Brewing Station on 8/23. Cloudy gold with a short white head. Nose is lemony with a cleaning fluid type aroma. It was kind of an artificial lemon note not a literal cleaning fluid aroma. Taste is a touch better with candied lemon, wheat notes, yeast and toasted malt. Body is light-medium and has a soft, creamy carbonation. Ends with more artificial lemon notes, wheat, yeast and light candy.

Some belgian banana and clove but balanced out by some nice lemon and sweetness. One of the better wheats.

Had on tap at the brewery. Not my favorite style of beer, but this one is fairly well done. Pours a light hazy yellow with a decent white head. Medium carbonation. taste is crisp and clean- lemongrass is really faint. would be good summer sipper after a long day at the beach or working outside. wasn’t overly "wheaty" or yeasty- two big turn-offs in this style. also tried oyster stout and had a pint of a really nice black IPA. more like a hoppy stout- really big beer with a somewhat hoppy finish. excellent- my favorite of the 3. made me with I had thought to bring a growler.

Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. The beer is a hazy yellow-gold color with a medium white head and stringy lacing. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Light-bodied with flavors of wheat, malt and lemons. The finish is short and fruity. Slightly above average overall.
