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. Hazy golden with a small white head. The aroma is tropical fruit, spicy coriander with some citrus notes. Low bitterness.

Keg @ The Black Heart, Camden. Pours cloudy yellow, lemongrass & banana on the nose. Picking out some strange spicy esters to this, a little too much mushy banana and not really digging the ginger and other spices that are emerging through the yeast. Found it hard to finish unfortunately.

Can. Pours cloudy golden orange, large white creamy head, great lacing. Aroma is wheat, lemon, coriander. Flavor follows, light sweet, little bitterness, light zesty bite, would not get ginger without help. Light body, high carbonation.

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!

Pours a hazy yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of lemon, bitter hops, ginger and spices. Taste is hoppy, herbal with ginger, bitter citrus. Really different from the norm. I love it!

On tap @ Churchill’s Pub / Savannah GA--- Cloudy pale gold color, 1/2" head cover, frothy bands of lace. Taste is wheat malt that is shot with coriander in the palate, then a nice agreeable bitter edge on the finish. Unexpectedly good, great as a session beer.

Surprising after reading the description printed in the can. Tried it with seafood at Waters Edge right down the road from the brewery and despite the use of Asian spices, it was very much like a Belgian White and paired well with my flounder. -via BBapp

ARH (338) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Poured into a 5oz sampler. Some of the more traditional banana and clove aromas are present as well as lemon and lemon peel (and/or lemongrass), but there’s also a spicy pepper and ginger. It pours a very muddy and murky banana yellow color with a white head that reduced to a medium, fluffy ring with a splotchy surface coverage. An average lace is left behind. It’s a medium bitter taste with a dry medium/medium-light sweetness and a touch of spiciness. The texture is on the thin side with a zippy carbonation and a medium light, dry body. It finishes with a pepper and coriander quality, and some lemon zest. The aftertaste is wheat and pepper. A well blended spicy kick flavor - enough to be noticeable without sticking out like a sore thumb.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 Orange hazy pour with crazy long head retention. Smell is wheat, lemon. Taste smooth wheat, faint bitterness of rind. Somewhat typical witbier yeast taste and no ginger coming through. Creamy body, light carbonation. Tau
