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.

Can. Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium frothy white head. The aroma is a strong floral and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with strong ginger and citrus with lingering dry finish. Good.

Had thanks to my boy Weezel. Drank straight from the can, so didn’t get a good look a the color. Aroma is real strong of spice. Lemon came out most in taste. Not my style but a good beer none the less.

Can at home. Pour is like a glass full of honeycomb with a frothy white head and great lacing. Coriander, basil, honey, lightly floral, grasssy, doughy, biscuit, and oranges in the aroma. Taste is spicy hoppy, lemongrass, biscuit, lemon peel, earthy honey, basil, coriander, and white pepper with a spicy finish. Full mouthfeel with high carbonation. This is a solid Belgian Wit. Everything I have had from this brewery has been on point.

12 oz can from a mixed 4-pack ($7.99) purchased at Mile High Wine & Spirits and poured into my Funkwerks tulip glass at home. Pale, yellow and cloudy appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of herbs, citrus zest, lemongrass, spices, wheat malts and light hops. Flavor is crisp, mild bitterness, zesty, lightly spicy, lightly herbal with some mild malt sweetness. Light to medium body, pretty easy to drink. Overall, pretty tasty, cheers to Mile High for putting these 4-packs together. Paired with Panang Curry.

Really disappointing. Don’t know if I got an old can or what. But the aroma was funky dish water, soapy, some bread, and bathroom esters. The taste was one dimensional will little of the spices being apparent, and the finish was really light on the carbonation, which is not a bad thing I just would have expected the flavors to be more prominent. Maybe a fresh can would be better. Next.

Can - turbid gold with a frothy, fairly thick head - nose of honey, melon, sweet citrus, moderate ginger, a touch of white pepper, and even some mild notes remeniscent of cloves - soft texture - medium sweet, but with a balancing bitterness and moderate touches of spicy ginger - earthy wheat - some crusty, dry maltiness finishes, with some peppery character, fresh citrus, and melon rind - an interesting take on the style.

Hazy light gold/strah hue with a big rocky white head. The aroma can be detected a foot away, with lots of hay and spicy bread dough, some rye, lots of coriander and a little candied wheat. Big bold flavor with sweet earthy wheat, doughy yeast, lots of coriander, spicy rye, a little lemon pepper, an earthy funkiness and a little eccentric belgian light fruitiness on the finish..really wonderful.

Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade. The appearance had a hazy yellow kinda golden colored body with a one finger white foamy head that dies to a film within about thirty seconds, clingy foamy rings form around the pint glass. The smell opened up with a yeastiness of sorts and then pop! all of a sudden there’s the spicy elements of ginger and black pepper, some oranges and lemons start to come through and combine pretty nicely. The taste takes the previously mentioned aromas and adds a bitter aspect to it, spicy yeasty aftertaste, dry and somewhat citrusy crisp finish. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium, somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is good for the Witbier style as there’s an ample amount of harshness but not too much, could also fit a saison for the peppery notes coming through on the tongue and mouth. Overall, witbier or saison, I like it and don’t care how its labeled, well worth to have again and worthy of having it with its recommended food.
