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.

Petkus331 (378) - Redford, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Aroma of banana, chili pepper capsaicin, a savory cummin like spice, and some pepper. Appears very bubbly yellowish hazy gold, white foam, white lace. Tastes very balanced of mild banana sweetness and mild hay like bitterness, there is a savoriness that is nearly hidden in the background. Palate is fizzy and nice. Overall, nice, but not crazy different from a standard white Belgian.

Can. Super bubbly. Very foamy with some white lace. Dark yellow/gold. Belgian nose of some candi sugar, mostly yeast and a surprising bit of pepper. Full body. Banana, bubblegum, some lemon, some harsher spice (in a good way). A bit of heat. Didn’t get a tremendous amount of SE Asia character.

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.

Vestlake (253) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 9, 2014
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 (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, 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.

Cunningham (6059) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2014
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.

minutemat (2911) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2014
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 thanks to Rachel. Pours an orange yellow, lots of white head. Aroma is Belgium yeast and spice. Taste is light, yeasty, spicey, not bad.

bytemesis (5194) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 11, 2014
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.
