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.

Poured into a snifter. 3.25 A: Mildly hazed golden color. Two fingers of pillowy off-white head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left. 3.5 S: This smells a lot more like a traditional witbier than I was expecting. Crisp wheat and spicy peppery yeast are predominant. The ginger is subtle with the lemongrass and sorachi ace (which is basically more lemongrass as far as Iím concerned) being more potent. More herbal than a normal witbier. Overall pretty good, but I wouldnít call it an improvement over the usual. 2.75 T: The taste I donít care for much and I know why. I really hate sorachi ace hops. It tastes like lemongrass and plastic. While the nose didnít have much of the plastic, the taste surely does. The ginger is stronger, which I like. Otherwise peppery spiciness and neutral wheat. 3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess and smooth enough. 3.0 D: I would like this if it didnít have sorachi ace in there. ★ 1,009 characters DavoleBomb, Feb 09, 2016

islay (2185) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2015
12 oz. can, consumed on 12-29-15. Belgian aroma. Scents of lemon, lemon peel, bison grass, vanilla, lavender, and orange peel. Strong and interesting smell. Not a normal beer aroma. The sweet floral quality may be a little too much. Pours a clear, highly effervescent, deep gold with a moderate amount of off-white head. Yeasty cloudiness in the final pour. Looks cool. Flavors of ginger and lemongrass. Belgian yeast taste. A bit of dry bitterness. Floral, herbal taste. Pretty good. Not as sweet as aroma implies, and thatís probably for the best. Light to medium body. Soft in the palate. Decent and interesting beer overall. Probably donít want to drink a lot of it, but nice to try. Well made.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - DEC 28, 2015
33 cl can. Hazy light golden with a thin head. Bready malts, citrusy and spicy, probably due to the lemongrass and ginger. Medium sweet with a low bitterness, soft carbonation, watery. An inovative take on a belgian wit.
