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.

wedgie9 (2004) - 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!

SG111 (147) - - SEP 28, 2014
Canned. Hazy light yellow color with a nice head and lacing. Aroma is a lot of the traditional Belgian witbier scents, bananas, cloves, wheaty, little lemony. Flavor is a lot more lemon and some light citrus than the aroma at the forefront. Light banana and clove come through in the aftertaste. Also a very very slight hop bitterness at the end. Medium-light pleasant carbonation that compliment this sessionable beer nicely. Not bad.

vtafro (3563) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Can. Would guess that it’s golden with white head. Lemongrass, ginger, spice and some sorachi aromas. Flavors are belgian tones, with light spice, ginger and lemongrass, hints of sorachi.

Beaver (1310) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2014
12 oz can. Pours hazy straw yellow with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is wheat malts, funky fruit and spices (ginger and others).

The flavor is wheat malts with some funk and some spicy fruit in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, an interesting wit - I like the Thai spices.
