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.

Cloudy yellow color with a two finger head with medium retention. Light sour aroma with hints of lemon, wheat and lemongrass notes. Flavor is different than a regular witbier given it is a bit sour and it has hints of lemongrass and a distant ginger, as opposed to focus on the regular coriander and orange peel. You can also feel the Sorachi hops and lemon-orange notes. Light body with medium carbonation. Very refreshing and pleasant. If you pair that with very spicy foods, you will be in heaven. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at home. High creamy and long lasting, good looking white head. hazy, milky orange body. Mild and dusty hay wheat aroma with weak notes of lemon. Pretty sweet and mild lemon flavor with a nice finish of ginger. Low carbonation. Short finish.

A Belgian white is a good thing for sure, but this is not the best Belgian white. That does not mean it is bad. However, compared to other offerings there is much better. To make a Belgium white inspired by Asian cuisine....just donít.

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 didnít 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. Donít 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.

notalush (4640) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2014
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.

onceblind (3675) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2014
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.
