Pours cloudy gold with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast and oranges. Flavor of orange yeast and lemongrass. Smooth mouthfeel with medium carbonation. This beer is interesting but not for me. It's the lemongrass. jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Hazy yellow pour with light lacing white head. Aroma of light straw, yeast, orange, and bit of clove and spice. Very similar lightly sweet flavor with a bit of crisp citrus finish. Very refreshing beer! harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2013

$10 for 22oz at Pilgrim’s in Coeur D’Alene, ID.
Poured to tulip.
A: Straw colored ale with low clarity - light shines thru, but as a glow, not a obvious light. Nice, white, loosely packed head dissipates early on. Nothing fancy here.
S: The scent, although strong, is sweet with grain and florals. Lemongrass, rose and gardenias make this a beautiful note to the beer.
T: Medium strength sweetness accented with corianderesque belgian yeast and lemongrass.
M: While carb seems excessive up front, foams out in mouth and leaves a nice, smooth, slick finish.
D: This is a good beer. Fits a niche desire. Although subtle, offer a complex variety of experience. Don’t pass up, but don’t expect a big beer. This is a slow, grows on you kind of beer.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2013 Probably my favorite craft beer to date. Didn’t have a heavy after taste like most beers, and was very refreshing! Would highly recommend. Nuffield (4180) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2013
I bet this looks and tastes better as a beer experience when you have the bottle. From the top, I failed to really notice much worth exclaiming about. The flavors at the front of the palate are better, having more fruit and spicy, but then it fades to a somewhat thin finish. Decent hazy, white/yellow appearance.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded rather quickly. The nose is very spicy, lots of orange peel, coriander, lemongrass, some tea like notes. Minimal yeast influence and wheat character. The flavor is pretty similar, more lemongrass than anything but there’s plenty of orange peel. Doesn’t really come off as a Wit all that much, this needs more yeastiness. Light bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation and some lingering spice. Overall, pretty meh for me. Not a huge fan of lemongrass I guess.
