Westbrook just started canning two of their beers a couple weeks ago. I was able to snag a couple six packs from their first shipment from the brewery.
The White Thai is a pale, cloudy yellow color. It pours with a white one-finger head that quickly melts into the beer. It's pretty weird to pour a beer like this out of a can.
Belgian yeast and light spice in the nose.
More spice comes through in the flavor. Spicy up front, then (Belgian) yeasty with a malty, sweet, spicy finish. A little bit of crisp citrus comes through, but more like citrus zest than citrus juice.
A nice mouthfeel. Smooth, light to medium bodied. The carbonation is just right for this style. Perfect mouthfeel for this beer.
This is a really cool beer. I think it has somewhat of a non-threatening, mass-market potential, even among non craft beer drinkers. But at the same time, I think people who enjoy and appreciate full-flavored beer will enjoy and appreciate this beer for what it is.
Serving type: can

On tap at The Owl House in Rochester, NY.
Pours a clear straw yellow, with a one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.
Smells like lemon, citrus, wheat, and spicing.
I don't particularly know what lemongrass smells like, but there some indistinguishable spice flavor in here, so I'm guessing that's the lemongrass I'm tasting. Some mild ginger, with some very subtle wheat bitterness, strong lemon flavors (likely from the Sorachi Ace hops), other citrus, some orange and grapefruit. Subdued yeast flavors.
Nicely creamy mouthfeel, while still being fairly crisp at all. Medium carbonation. Light bodied.
This was alright. Witbiers aren't my favorite style, but like most Westbrook beers, it was executed well.
Serving type: on-tap
