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.

Martinus (2800) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2013
Hazy orange yellow colour, white head. Spicy aroma, lemon, ginger, light cloves and wheat. Bread notes, some baked banana at the end of the nose. Spicy flavour, light sweet, spicy ginger, lemongrass, somewhat soapy. Spicy finish, ginger, ginger ale, light lingering soap. Not bad, refreshing and nice in itself, but was hoping for a bit more.

Lemongrass and Thai basil aroma. Wheaty for sure, a touch of barnyard funk, non-traditional be thy name.

Sweet malted wheat serves as a base for the underlying spices. Body is right on the money. Ginger takes hold on the palate, fortunately not too dominant; adds an interesting bit of complexity to the overall profile. Finishes mildly bitter. Def not a session beer; interesting.

poured from can - hazy orange pour with a light white head. Nose is citrus fruits, orange peel and caramel. Sweet body with lemongrass and a hint of ginger. Tasty and fresh with a hint of astringency. Has a note of bile, which is somewhat detracting.

12 oz can purchased at Growler’s Craft Beer & Ales in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. 6/21/13 stamped on the bottom of the can. The pour is a murky gold yellow with a thick white head. The aroma is spice yeast and wheat. The taste is the nose, grain of the wheat, paired with the lemongrass, ginger and spiced yeast and hops. The palate is medium bodied, unfiltered mouthfeel, and the spice lingering in the finish. Overall fresh and well made though a touch heavy on the spice for my tastes.
