Notes/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.

Poured into sam adams glass, one finger head developed with mild lacing and retention, was white in color. Appearance was a very hazy lemon / orange color. Aroma was of citrus and some allspice with some hop and yeast notes. Tasted of spice and citrus with some grass notes. Aftertaste was a bit bitter with a medium, almost a syrup texture, mouth feel.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the can into my 668 Neighbor tulip. Hazy amber body with a two-finger, fluffy white head. Some lacing.

Smells slightly of ginger, some nutmeg, and lemon.

Tastes pretty crisp. Nutmeg, lemon especially, and--again--only the tiniest bit of ginger.

Very thin mouthfeel. Mild carbonation.

This beer is tasty, but very muted. Good for drinking at a barbecue at an easy 5%.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz can, no canning date- at the bottom, it is marked "- - -", which is fairly cryptic. Poured into an unmarked snifter 7/19/2014.

A- Hazy, murky yellow body with a two finger white head with good staying power that leaves rings of lacing as it disappears. Looks good.

S- Whoa. Lots of ginger and lemongrass. At least, I think that's what I'm getting. Pretty herbal, spice-filled nose with a clean wheat and candi sugar base. This is pretty interesting, even though I'm not the biggest fan of heavy ginger flavours.

F- Lemongrass up front, some Belgian candi, a slight bit of freshly cut raw onions, wheat, pale malt, and a heavy ginger finish. The ginger is fairly strong but doesn't quite dominate. If you're a fan of ginger flavours (e.g. you like eating the ginger side on its own when you order sushi) then you are going to love this beer. As it is, it's quite floral and ginger forward.

M- Medium bodied, not lacking in any way. Good carbonation, refreshing with a good bubbliness to it. Very easy to drink despite the heavy ginger-forward finish.

O- I'm not a fan of ginger, but Westbrook executed this very well. This is what they intended, and they pulled it off. Its just a question of whether you like ginger and lemongrass in your witbiers.
