COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer, inspired by the flavors of Southeast Asian cuisine, is a twist on the classic Belgian witbier style. Instead of the traditional coriander and orange peel spicing regimen, we add fresh lemongrass, ginger root, and a dash of Sorachi Ace hops. The result is a wonderfully refreshing ale with notes of lemon candy, citrus fruit, and a slight spiciness from the ginger. Best served at 45˚F in a tulip or wine glass.

Draft at Prohibition. Hazy yellow/orange with a white head. Excellent lacing. Aromas are lemon, citrus, grass. Heavy on the lemon taste, ginger is definitely there. Good but the finish is soapy.

Hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is wheat and spice. Taste is the same. Nice taste, though I prefer more of a citrus taste in Witbier.

can pour..medium yellow light orange color..produces 1 finger frothy head..nose of dried ginger..spice combo..some lemon..mouthfeel is quite unique and good..fairly light bodied with some nice lingering pleasant passionfruit candy coating that is not overly sweet but has nuances of the ginger..lemongrass..pretty tasty stuff..quite reminiscent of taste profiles from allagash white mixed with brooklyn sorachi ace...

bartlebier (1645) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2014
33cl can courtesy of embrouille, danke! Pours a soggy & hazy yellow, dissipating soapy head. Less fragrant than expected given the ingredients: some heavy coriander, older peel and grapey sweetness - not all that much of a Wit yeast strain freshness, more like an Asian/Arabic fusion rice dish, incorporating kurkuma and ginger. Taste sees all that plus some elegant vegetal/citrus bitterness and spice from the lemon grass and Sorachi. Bit of an overload, overall not as refreshing or summery as you’d anticipate going by label & list of ingredients.

Cloudy deep yellow color with a nice white head. Yeast, spices and citric. Medium body with a balanced sweetness and bitterness. Fine carbonation. Fresh nice flavor with citrus, pepper, mild ginger and citrus. Lovely nice tasty ale.

Keg @ The Black Heart, Camden. Pours cloudy yellow, lemongrass & banana on the nose. Picking out some strange spicy esters to this, a little too much mushy banana and not really digging the ginger and other spices that are emerging through the yeast. Found it hard to finish unfortunately.

Can. Pours cloudy golden orange, large white creamy head, great lacing. Aroma is wheat, lemon, coriander. Flavor follows, light sweet, little bitterness, light zesty bite, would not get ginger without help. Light body, high carbonation.

Canned on 5/20/14
Tasted on 7/9/14 from a 12oz can purchased at Green’s Buford. Pours cloudy bright orange with a very thick and rocky white head that leaves very thick and rocky lace. The nose is some wheat malt with plenty of lemongrass aroma, a touch of ginger, and citrus hops. The flavor is the same with the ginger showing a bit more earthy, and the lemongrass and sorachi ace covering the spectrum of bright lemon to pithy peel. The body is medium and a bit creamy with average, but smooth, carbonation, and a long lemon peel finish with the spice of ginger really coming through nicely. Also, what a cool idea for a beer!
