Can, best by 1/25/15. Pours a unbelievably clear pale yellow, similar to bud light with more head. Aroma is all Belgian yeast, looking for more hop aroma here. Mouthfeel is watery with some malt sweet/stickyness left over, not overly dry. Taste is Belgian yeast with some citrus notes but I can not pick up the basil so much, not enough hops here for me, beer is well balanced however. Feels more like a pale ale, not a fan of the white IPA genre myself, and this is middle of the road.

Serving: 12 oz can poured into an IPA glass.

Appearance: Light, very slightly hazy, bright lemony yellow. Smaller frothy head but lasts well with nice lines of lacing.

Smell: Belgian yeast, citrus, lemongrass and some savory notes.

Taste: Lighter malty body (crackers, white bread), fruity Belgian yeast and layers citrus and spice. Finishes dry and a bit bitter.

Mouthfeel: Light and well carbonated.

Overall: Somewhat confused in style, more a hoppy wit than IPA as the Belgian yeast takes over, but still drinkable, refreshing and interesting all at once.

Interesting flavor, but a bit too flowery to drink on its own. However, as might be expected, it pairs well with Asian food, especially sweeter-tasting dishes.

Nice pour, with a light head that dissipated fairly quickly. Very 'white', looks like a light beer in many ways. But the aroma had some interesting notes, a bit fruity and a bit spicy. The first sip proved that to be true - a strong ginger flavor, with the hoppy citrus taste coming on the back end. The other listed spices - Thai Basil, coriander, & lemongrass, were subtle, and harder for me to pick out, although they added some flavors beyond the ginger & hops. All in all, a fascinating combination that was a pleasure to quaff.

Clear straw colored pour with a minimal white head. Very light aroma of spice and citrusy hops. Taste has lemon grass and coriander upfront for a really interesting, and good, initial taste. Light bodied. As the beer warms the spice comes out more along with a bit of lemon, basil, pepper and yeast. Not much in the way of hops/bitterness present but still interesting and good. Finishes short lingering lemon grass and basil flavor.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: 3.75 - Hazy pale gold with a smallish head.
S: 4.0 - Nice perfumy witbier aroma, with wheat and bitter orange peel coming through clear. Coriander is light.
T: 4.25 - Good flavor! Bitterness is high but not enough to mask other components. Lots of wheat. Coriander makes an appearance now, though it's mild (maybe viet coriander?). There's a pleasant subtle pepperiness that might be green peppercorns, though not sure. Citrusy orange is also there.
M: 4.0 - Light, very drinkable, but with plenty of carbonation.
O: 4.25 - Quite a decent wit, though the thai-ness isn't really apparent. Without the label to tell me, I'd not find much to differ from any other good wit. But good wits are always welcome with me.
