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.

BlackWarrior (220) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Yellow hazy pour w/ small white head - good lacing. Aromas of ginger, citrus, yeast and citrus. Light bodied but smooth. low end carbonation, but lively. Sweet citrus, sugar and a touch of ginger/perpper spice notes. This beer is greater than the sum of its parts. Nothing wowed me individually, but but it’s a great summer 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.

Barwa żółta, klarowna, piana na 1 cm. Aromat weizena, trawy cytrynowej, imbir. W smaku słodowe, przyprawowe, goździkowe. Takie połączenie weizena z witbirem. Spoko pifko.

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 (1532) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2017
Plenty good wit. Finish just falls off a little for me and lacks that white pepper snap finish.

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.

beerme31 (705) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - SEP 27, 2017
Can. Hazy golden medium off white head. Mild aroma of clove and spice and citrus. Medium sweetness. Medium-light body, tingly carbonation feel, lingering spice and fruit. Pretty good overall.

LazyPyro (1604) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2017
355ml can. Cloudy golden colour with a small white head, thin lacing. Spicy aroma - coriander, ginger, lemongrass, peppery, citrus. Taste has a light spiciness, coriander, ginger and particularly lemongrass complement the citrus peel and wheat malt well. Medium body, smooth, average carbonation. Really nice, quite underrated I feel.

spacecube (1772) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2017
Can, pours pale gold with a light haze. Aroma is light honey and caramel malts, coriander, lemon, a touch herbal. Body is light, carbonation is soft. Finish is dry, and a little spice.
