Served on-tap at Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills, NC
A: Pours a cloudy dark straw to pale golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation and some lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall pillowy white head that slowly reduces to a medium sized, medium thick cap with a very thin film surrounding it and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of lemongrass over lighter aromas of wheat and clove.
T: Upfront there are light flavors of wheat and some slightly strong flavors of lemon citrus. That is all overtaken by a moderate to slightly heavier than moderate flavor of lemongrass with some black pepper spiciness. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of fizzy carbonation.
O: This beer was super refreshing and very enjoyable - I could easily drink this beer as my session beer and it was a perfect complement to seafood while out in the OBX. Definitely the highlight of visiting Outer Banks Brewing Station. The lemongrass was a perfect complement to the style of beer.

500ml bottle purchased straight from the source and poured into a pub style glass. The brew appears a clouded golden color with streaming bubbles that makes for a white froth atop that retains well. Strings of webby lace stick to the glassware.
The smell is composed of wheat, clove, lemon, and more fruit quality almost like pear/apple/banana and a light candy quality sweetness follows that up.
The taste is sweet with wheat and cereal grain. A mild almost belgian candy sugar aspect mixes with clove, lemon zest, pear, apple and bubblegum. Contrasting is a mildly herbal hop flavoring.
This is a medium to light bodied brew with a modest to effervescent level of carbonation. It is easy drinking and fitting for the setting. Style-wise it is uncharacteristically sweet but it isnt cloying. This is perhaps the most easily attainable offering by this brewery. They had it on site and advertised on the walls and seemingly every bottle shop in the area had it as well. Worth a try if you get a chance.

500ml bottle into weizen glass. Thanks Stormking47.
A: Pours a cloudy glowing citrus-gold with a short lived fizzy white head that faded into a faint bubbly collar.
S: Huge notes of citrus and yeast on the nose, with notes of lemon and spices. Crisp and clean smelling.
T: Lemongrass, citrus, mineraly spicy yeast, pepper, bread dough, and more citrus. Finish is drying but slick. Hints of apple cider as it warms.
M: Medium body, fizzy carbonation, clean and crisp mouthfeel. Not too sweet, drinks well, but a little spritzy.
O: A solid drinking beer. Went down well. Flavors are very citrusy, so you gotta be into that. Thanks again, Josh.
