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.

CRAFT IN A CAN. 33 cl. redelijk cool eruit ziende blikje (ik wou dit vooral dankzij het blikje hebben) – ik ben dol op kanariegeel – gedeeld met Kraddel – ik heb het meeste hiervan opgedronken. Extreem wazig gouden vloeistof met weinig in de weg van kraag (wit). Dit spul ruikt naar instant tarwe, botter, kurkuma, bloemen en meel + zoete gember. Smaakt naar bloem, instant tarwe met botter, kurkuma, bloemen, onbewerkte graan en extreem romige en zoete tarwe, gember thee. Citroengras, sorachi ace en gember, ik krijg niet echt deze dingen zoals is zij ken tenzij in best wel zoete boter vorm. Romig, botterig, wow dit is special… rest uiteraard uit de blik opgedronken. Dit zou inderdaad prachtig met eten gaan.

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.

Can. Lemongrass aroma. Cloudy yellow body with thin lasting head. Flavor begins citrusy with hints of pepper. A little sorachi bite with hints of wheat and ginger. Dry and crisp, very refreshing. A great summer beer.

Can @ home, courtesy of cinefreak7. Thanks Justin! Pours a cloudy, light yellow appearance with a beautiful, lasting white head. Looks absolutely gorgeous. Aroma reminds me a bit of Dogfish Head Namaste with a notable lemongrass element. Somewhat spicy yeasty, lemon citrusy, soft, inviting aroma. Fairly herbal, grassy, a touch chewy, lemon, ginger, a bit earthy, slightly tangy, sweet wheat flavor. Well balanced and easy drinking. Nothing crazy good but a nice wheat beer.

Cloudy yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is lemon, lemongrass, very slight hops and a bit of ginger. Flavor is lightly refreshing but full flavored. Notes of bright citrus hops with strong lemon undertones. Nice wheat flavor and decently spiced. Just a touch bitter in the finish, but not overly so. Wife: 4

Pours cloudy lemon yellow. Full aromas of tangerine and white flower. Full bodied palate. Shows orange blossom, banana, white flowers. A fresh vegetal note, lemon and a little white pepper. Complex flavors with an extremely lingering finish. Perfect balance on the palate.

Nice beer! light yellow pour, white head. The Thai spices are evident up front, lots of lemongrass and ginger. Flavor blends the spices and base beer seamlessly. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

Well-done wit from America with interesting spice mix where ginger and lemon grass contributes nice freshness. Tart and refreshing.
