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 (2703) - 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!

The opportunity to grab a new Westbrook release resulted in the can jumping into the shopping cart. I wasn't disappointed although it could have been slightly better. It may have been the experimental aspect but if this is the worse Westbrook can do I'm still happy to grab new ones as they come out.

Aroma / Appearance - The transparent golden base shimmers and glows under a dense white head. Lemon, wheat, and moderate spices tickle the nose. I was anticipating more bite - this felt more like an American version of Thai spicy.

Flavor / Palate - Mild spices mix with lemons then melt away like dew. The full body opens up over the course of time until it caps off with a pleasant depth. I was not blown away but the ginger did set this apart from your average witbier.

mrjaxson (631) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2017
A pleasant-enough potpourri aroma with nice lemon scents and flavors throughout along with ginger in the nose, too. Wouldn't mind a second one if offered. Poured from a can.

ryanscourt (1571) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2017
Plenty good wit. Finish just falls off a little for me and lacks that white pepper snap finish.

hershiser2 (3832) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2017
On tap at Cole's in Buffalo. Pours hazy golden not a huge aroma. Flavor is interesting combination of almost winter spices into a wit. A Little hose water, a hint of cinnamon, a spattering of heat perhaps? This is nice.
