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.

wedgie9 (2528) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 9, 2014
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!

GnarlyGnome (835) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Can: Now this is what I’m talking about. Traditional take on a Belgian wit, that takes it’s own path without blowing the style out of the water. This has a fantastic spice profile that sits perfectly with the coriander and orange peel spiciness of the style. Awesome.

Augdraught1981 (224) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Candied orange, malty aroma with a smooth body and lemony flavors. Sweet & smooth and very clear and slightly darker for a witbier. Well done.

Unheimlich weiß, sehr trüb. Geruch wild und weizig. Im Geschmack eher eine weiches Farmhouse Ale. Sehr interessant. Scharf zum Ende, nur leicht nachhängend. Sehr estrig, phenolig. NIcht astringierend.
