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 (2702) - 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!

12oz can. Pours hazy yellow with a full frothy white head. Citrus and yeast nose followed by flavors of lemongrass, ginger, bright hops, light funk. Medium fizzy carbonation. Fresh finish with some lingering hops. Not that the name is any clue, but this is an excellent pairing with Thai food.

ordybill (1758) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2017
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a tulip glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a mildly murky gold color with a small white head. The aroma is lemongrass, citrus and some ginger. The taste is ginger, wheat and some citra hops.

Zapach mało intensywny, zioła, trawa cytrynowa, imbir. Kolor słomkowy, opalizujące. Piana średnio obfita, drobna, szybko znika. W smaku lekka słodycz, niska pełnia, słód, zioła, pieprz, imbir, trawa, kwiaty, cytrusy. Goryczka niska, wysycenie średnie.

5% 16 ibu ale brewed with spices. Instead of orange peel taste has s definite lemon twist. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Couleur jaune clair; mousse blanche; arômes et goût maltés, de froment, fruités et légèrement épicés; bière douce avec trop peu d’amertume en finale

Aus der Dose 2015-09 getrunken. Ein belgisches Witbier mal anders mit Lemongras und Ingwer. Kein schlechter Durstlöscher mit leichter Zitrusnote.

j12601 (11571) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 30, 2017
On tap at Bacchus. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Soft musk on the nose, a bit of lemongrass. Medium bodied, wheat, soft lemon. Fruity, light yeast. Crisp, soft yeast, light musk.

3.8
oobawa (1394) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2017
One of the better American examples of the style, bright and crisp with lovely banana-clove notes and a ginger-and-basil accented finish. Grass and yeast on the front, then wheaty and semidry in the middle, with a bread-and-basil fade. Smooth, well-carbonated feel, and a nose bursting with floral witbier goodness.
