Appearance: Light yellow, like white whine, with a big white head.

Smell: Lemon, yeast.

Taste: Belgian yeast, citrus, spices (pepper, lavender).

Mouthfeel: Thin and crisp with plenty of carbonation.

Overall: Good hot weather beer (it was about 90F when I had it). Packs a lot of different flavors in, while none of them are over the top. Reminds me of a light saison.

I'm not a big fan of " summer " beer but I like a crisp pilsner or Hefe, or APA.

This is bland, tame, and I get less lemongrass than expected.

. Snooze city, BUT: if you are a fan of light summer beer without strong flavors
: it might hit the spot

Pours a hazy gold that is typical of a wittebier. Small head, sticky lacing that clung to the side of a tilted glass. Not shocking, the aroma of lemongrass was strongly present.

And the citrusy taste of lemongrass was the first tongue sensation when sipped followed by a creamy sensation and a grain flavor. Very refreshing.

I bought a growler home and drank with thai food. Excellent combination.

On-tap at Bootlegger's

A: The pour on this one is a hazy pale yellow color with a massive white head.

S: The lemongrass aroma is really almost overpowering. Lots of coriander is in there as well. A bit of wheat and bread, but they're sort of drowned out by everything else. Light citrus peel and some white pepper.

T: A lot of citrus peel flavor and a strong woody, lemongrass flavor. There is a nice sweetness of wheat bread and a nice bit of sweet spices and esters. Just a hint of pepper and maybe even a hint of vanilla.

M: The body is medium and the carbonation is a bit on the high side.

O: A lot better than my previous Bootlegger's-lemongrass experience. Not something I'd drink a ton of, but good.
