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.

Thanks to instantmessenger for passing on a couple of these in a trade in support of The CANQuest (TM)!

From the CAN: "Ale brewed with spices"; "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 [CAN]dy, citrus fruit, and a slight spiciness from the ginger."; "Best served at 45-50 [Deg.] F in a tulip or wine glass."

As it turns out, I have a tulip glass from Belgian Independence Day (21 July 2012) which I got at the celebration at the Bronx Ale House. Hooray! I used the inverted Crack & Glug and ended up with over two fingers of dense, bone-white head with great retention. Color was a very cloudy lemon-yellow and it looked like a glassful of lemon meringue pie. Nose was zesty with the lemongrass and the ginger seemingly fighting for supremacy. Mouthfeel was soft, like it was caressing my tongue and the melding of the flavors was beautiful. Lemon, definitely, but as to what type of CANdy they were alluding to, I do not know, Lots of nice ginger spiciness also and I was beginning to mull over which dishes I would order at a BYOB with a sixer of this in tow. Finish was very dry and very refreshing. This is just what The CANQuest (TM) ordered!

Poured into a tulip glass from a growler.

Nice appearance as it is a light yellow and slightly cloudy. Head is long lasting and creamy white.

Smell has a light lemon aroma with just a touch of spice to it.

Taste is similar to the smell as you really get the lemongrass and ginger with just the right amount of wheat. The mouthfeel is what you expect from the style with just the right amount of carbonation and a light creaminess throughout.

This is one of Westbrook's year-round offerings and it has turned into one of my favorites. It is extremely drinkable at 5% and is a beer that I never get tired of. I cannot wait for this to be canned so I can always have a supply in the beer fridge.

Had a can while staying in Charleston. Holy cow! So delicious. On phone, so I'll keep it simple: smoothest, most balanced witbier I've ever had. Lost points for lacking spicyness they advertised. At 5% abv I could see myself drinking plenty of these.

Had on tap at Foster's in Mount Pleasant. Go in and ask for Craig Foster - he knows more about beer than just about anyone in the Charleston area.

A - light and airy in appearance, not as cloudy as I was expecting.

S - Simply gorgeous. Citrus, lemon, and a touch of ginger. Very inviting.

T - Bright and fresh - the lemon and phenolic tang balace well to make this a beer that I could drink a lot of.

M - Nothing exceptional here, fairly light and easy.

D - Extremely drinkable. Smooth, refreshing.

Nice pour out of a can into my bhb tulip glass... white head... nice and cloudy yellow hazy just like a wit should be. Smell is of spices, clove, banana... everything I want in this style is in the nose hopefully it translates to the taste... don't really get the promised asian spices and flavors but damn a very drinkable hefe style beer... really wanted to get the promised ginger which hurts the rating only because I don't get it though I love the beer..

Chose my favorite beer for my first review!

It pours a hazy yellow with bleach white head, lots of carbonation and some lacing.

The smell has a lot of lemongrass, lemon zest, bread, and a little hint of herbal spice.

The flavors are blended very well with some lemon zest, lemon basil, wheat, tonic, and herbal spices.

It has a lot of carbonation for a beer and sits very light on the palate.

Overall, this is an excellent, very refreshing beer that seems to stay very consistent.

Pour - hazy yellow to gold in color with a not too thick wispy head on top. Sort of soft and opaque in appearance with a good deal of yeasty cloudiness.

Aroma - spicy and sweet, lots of great aromas coming from the glass. Some nice citrus notes along with some hints of ginger and coriander. Very spicy, warm and inviting.

Taste - that first sip is all I need to know that this is a very well put together witbier. Lots of those traditional flavors are present such as the coriander and the citrus notes but the ginger and the lemongrass really bring this beer to another level. Very spicy and refreshing and I can't really say enough about what the addition of ginger does for a beer like this.

Overall - one of the best witbiers I've ever had. Absolutely great beer with such well measured spice flavor and a nice crisp finish. Altogether fantastic. Very well done and cheers to everyone at Westbrook Brewing Company.

Filled at CBX in Charleston, SC. Thanks as always, guys!

A - Pours a hazy light straw with a creamy white head. Retention is very nice, as are the sheets of lacing left on the glass.
S - Bubblegum and bananas, spicy clove and a whole lotta lemon. Very crisp and clean aromas, love the use of Sorachi!
T - Lightly toasted biscuit malt, bananas, bubblegum and more fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Flavors are slightly subdued, but very enjoyable.
M - Smooth and creamy with a medium-light body and moderate carbonation.
D - Really good drinkability, the girlfriend and I had no problem killing the growler. I think with a couple of tweaks this could be a new favorite, I'd love to see the ginger and lemongrass ramped up to play a more prominent role, like the basil in the Bruery's Trade Winds Tripel. Still, very nice first offering.

Enjoyed a couple glasses of this beer at dinner in Charleston. Really nice beer. Perfect summer session beverage.

Each pint came with a finger plus of bright white whipped egg white head. Fairly decent retention. The beer is a light hazy straw color with a dull tone to it. Very nice rings of lacing. Good looking beer. Spot on for style.

Aroma was fantastic. Bright and fresh. Pale grains, definitely the lemongrass pops, a touch of yeast and spice. I don’t specifically smell the ginger, but there are lots of spice notes.

Very nice bright, lively flavor. Lemongrass and other citrus notes, a touch of vanilla, banana and lots of spice notes. The wheat notes produce a nice light bready aftertaste

Very light and delicate body. Very refreshing. A creamy sense while remaining delicate.

Really enjoyed this beer. Excellent representation of the style and a perfect match for food. Seek this beer out when visiting Charleston in the summer.

Hazy lemon and honey mix with 1/2 finger of fizzy white head. No retention and very little lace.

Spice and ginger are all over the nose. A nice mix. Straw, lemon, and sweet tea round things out. Well done.

Ginger really kicks up the flavor. Fairly dry hit, but gets bittersweet in the finish with crystal ginger, lemon zest, and sweet tea.

Feel is about right. Thicker than expected but stands up well to the taste.

This would do very well on a hot summer day in the Holy City of Charleston.

A cloudy straw color with a thin white head.

It has a nice citrus, earthy, and Belgian funk aroma.

Lots of flavors going on here. A little citrus, ginger, soft wheat, and a nice funky yeast flavor. They all blend together very well and are balanced perfectly. I don't know if it's the name, but the finish is very Asian tasting. An almost rice-like starch with a touch of citrus and ginger. The hop just appears briefly in the finish also with just a touch of bitterness and herbal flavor to compliment the other flavors.

The feel is velvet smooth. Light and refreshing. The carbonation gives it just enough body, but doesn't interfere with the delicate feel of the beer.

My first time trying this beer and I'm a huge fan. It goes over and above the run of the mill Witbier and adds depth of flavor, aroma, and a great feel. Can't wait to crack one of these on a hot summer day.

Poured from a can (dated 1/20/14) into a Riedel tulip glass. The pour produces an incredibly huge cream-colored, meringue-thick head that takes several minutes to settle down. The liquid is a super cloudy, opaque orange.

Aroma is pretty sour - lots of lemony citrus and some peppery spiciness. I thought I smelled coriander, but the can says they used lemongrass and ginger root instead of coriander. The nose really reminds me of Westbrook's Gose. It's sour, fruity, and kind of savory - nicely complex.

Flavor follows the nose, but not nearly as sour. There's some citrus tartness, some of that peppery spiciness, and, especially as it warms, a kind of coriander-esque savoriness. Really brings in the complexity - each sip is a little different from the last.

Mouthfeel is really nice as well - moderately thick, but not too heavy.

If I wanted a beer to drink all night - this would easily be it - lots of complexity, but still easy-drinking, and perfect at only 5% ABV.

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.

thanks to egrace84 for the chance to try this can of beer!

Poured into tulip glass.

canned on 07/16/2013.

Appearance: hazy orangish yellow bodied beer with 2 fingers of thick soapy white head. Slowely drops down to a thin cap, eventually a thin ring around the glass.

Smell: bready malt and fruity yeast. Lemon citrus and orange zest notes; light earthy and grassy hops with clove notes. Slightly spicy and sweet notes of ginger.

Taste: Lemon zest and orange zest. Grass and ginger. Really bready/doughy malt. Banana, clove, and slightly fruity yeast. Lots of earthy flavors with very mild bitterness. Hint of green tea and herbal. Really really well balanced flavors. No flavors overpower any of the other flavors found in this beer.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The carbonation is soft and slightly creamy. Smooth and very drinkable.

Overall: This is a great beer in a can! I really like this Westbrook offering! Great lawnmower beer for sure.

First up: Hats must go off to Edward Westbrook and his very newly (December 2010) launched brewery in Mount Pleasant, SC. My current home state gets another brewery! Excellent... North Carolina has gotten far too much love of late. Ed launched with three beers, this is one. It's a Witbier, and I have to say, there are only a few styles I'd rather drink year round on the Charleston coast. Introduction aside, let's dive in and see if this is any good.

I should add that White Thai is brewed with lemongrass, ginger, and Sorachi Ace hops, among others.

A. Pours a hazy wispy yellow into my Cantillon tumbler, this is one of those beers that is darker in the middle than on the edges. A long lasting, wheaty head sticks around and falls, pitted, after some long minutes. A bit of sticky lacing remains. Looks good to me. The head is tight and compact. Nice.

S. On the soft side, but the expected coriander and lemon are there, plus the spicy yeasty notes I've grown to love. *Maybe* some ginger in the nose, but very slight if so. Gently sweet and spritzy with a fresh, wheat-heavy nose. I like it.

T. Solid. Easily on par with most American Witbiers - the wheat is engaging and almost fruity, while the spice is in level check and the coriander and hops play together quite well. A gently bitter, dry finish makes this quite re-approachable, and the lemon adds some fun tartness. Not sure I can taste the ginger. Works very well as a Witbier, less so as a WitbierPlus. But this is a beer in progress.

M / D. Light bodied, fully carbonated, and a pleasing, semi-dry, light citrus bitter flavor lingers into the finish. It works well and is very easy to put back. I can only imagine how quickly a growler of this would vanish during a Summer Charleston Zehner Deck Party. (SCZDP)

White Thai is a solid Witbier, no doubt about it. I'm really impressed with the fact that this is literally the first batch of this beer to leave the brewery and it only needs (in my mind) minor tweaks to get exactly where it needs to be. Personally, I'd up the ginger a tad so it creeps into the nose and dial the hops down so the finish doesn't linger so bitter... but these are minor quibbles.

The real bottom line is, White Thai is a better Witbier than some of the Big Dogs (Avery, Ommegang) and is brewed in my home state! I look forward to putting back a few dozen more of these and seeing how it evolves. Nice work, Westbrook.

Appearance: Pours a clear straw color verging on golden; the rocky head hangs for a while and leaves the occasional strand behind

Smell: Ginger, lemongrass and clove waft atop the bready backbone

Taste: The spices jump right out, with the lemon and ginger tones being joined by the clove at mid-palate; the bready malts linger underneath to serve as a platform for the spice; the finish is almost puckery it has so much lemon and ginger in it

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Looking around for a summer beer with a difference? Look no further than this gem, even if you aren't a big fan of Wits

12oz. can served into a nonic pint glass

Pours a cloudy pale yellow color. There's a hazy glow to the body, like sunshine pouring in through cloth drapes. Two fingers of gorgeous, cloud-fluffy white head, and lots of lacing to boot. A fantastic looking witbier.

White Thai's nose is immediately recognizable as a witbier, even though close scrutiny reveals that the usual witbier notes are not at all present. This is not a beer that uses orange peel or coriander! Instead, it achieves an unmistakable witbierness through ingredients inspired by Thai cuisine. The spices here are lemongrass (lots and lots of it) and ginger, primarily. Not used in the actual brewing of this beer, but registering to my mind when smelling it, are basil and maybe even fennel. No lemon peel, as far as I know, but this is a very lemony beer. It's got the infamously lemony Sorachi Ace hops, and they play very well with the lemongrass. Some sweet, light malt aromas are here too, but they are background players at best. It actually reminds me of Boulevard Collaboration No. 2 - White IPA. See, the Boulevard-bottled version of that beer was heavier on the lemongrass & sage than the Deschutes-bottled Conflux No. 2 (which is now available from them as Chainbreaker White IPA). It's less hoppy that that beer, but the impulse is very similar. Fantastic.

The malts are stronger on the palate, for sure. White Thai has an easy-drinking wheaty malt backbone. It's full of the lemony Sorachi Ace hop flavor, but it isn't at all bitter (I wish it had more hop bitterness, as I kind of want it to be a White IPA moreso than a Witbier). The ginger might just be the strongest flavor here, though the lemongrass does a good job of balancing it. There's a bit of a phenolic aftertaste here that isn't unwelcome.

The mouthfeel is medium-bodied and soft. I think it could use a bit more prickly carbonation (or perhaps more a typically-Belgian attenuation level), but there's nothing to complain about.

Overall, this is a fantastic Witbier. It's original and refreshing. I'd love to pair this with Thai food. It's also a perfect summer porch-drinking candidate. I'm impressed with Westbrook after having their two year-round beers, and I wish I could try their more limited offerings.

Had this one with my dinner during my birthday dinner with a few friends. Served from tap into a nonic. Poured a hazy golden yellow with a minimal white head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, fruit, floral notes, and spices. The flavor was of sweet malt, banana, bread, floral notes, and subtle spices. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. I had heard lots of people in the area talking badly about this beer, so I jumped at the chance to try it for myself. I found it quite enjoyable and easy drinking. It was pretty much spot on for what you would expect for the style with the addition of a few subtle spices to give it a little kick and stand out from the rest. A definite must try if you get the chance.

On tap at the Bar at Husk, Charleston, SC.

Served in a pilsener glass.

Beer pours a bright, light, cloudy yellow with a thick and lingering bright white head.

Smell was mostly lemon and other citrus notes, not much spice or pop in the aroma. The taste is where all the action was. The lemongrass was again up front with some notes of ginger. You can definitely pick up the lemony zest from the Sorachi Ace hops. A very nice tasting beer.

The mouthfeel was light and very refreshing. On a warm Charleston evening, a very nice, tasty, refreshing spin on the tradition witbier.

12 oz can poured into a pint glass at fridge-cellar temperature.

L – Pale gold color with a 3-finger white frothy, bubbly, pillowy head. Really nice retention and lacing. Has the slightest bit of haze with a good amount of bubbles.

S – Wheat with some traditional banana and coriander aromas and some unique lemon and ginger aromas. The ginger aroma really shines through as the beer warms. Very nice and different.

T – Starts off sweet with wheat, lemongrass, and orange flavors. Spicy ginger and peppery yeast flavors come through mid-taste. Subtle lemon hop bitterness shines at the end.

F – Medium-bodied with good carbonation, a sticky and creamy mouthfeel, and a slightly spicy, slightly bitter, and dry finish. Peppery yeast spice and lemon hop bitterness linger nicely.

O – Another tasty beer from Westbrook. I like their twist on the traditional witbier style. I think the ginger adds a great deal to the aroma and a nice little bite to the taste. A very drinkable beer. Don’t sleep on Westbrook. They don’t make bad beers.

Appearance - Poured a soft, two-finger width, off-white head. The beer is a hazy, golden pale color. Lacing clings all the around the glass.

Aroma - Smells of coriander, lemon and orange peel, and a slight touch of Belgium yeast - all of which are equally balanced.

Taste - The taste is comparable to the smell - coriander and lemon along with a touch of spiciness and citrus.

Mouthfeel - Light body, smooth, thin, and absolutely refreshing. This beer would be perfect on a hot summer day. There is a slight bit of bitterness as well.

Overall - A very refreshing and well balanced beer. The flavors play off each other nicely between the spice and citrus notes. I was able to have both this and One Claw from Westbrook and have been really impressed. Hoping to have Gose at some point soon.

This is more than a Witbier. With the amount of spices it has, its in a category of its own. And at 5% too, I'll take a 6 pack of this any day.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head, that last for a little but slowly faded. I cant see through my glass. The smell is sweet and spicy, lemongrass, orange, and a hint of hops. It tastes awesome. It says it is brewed with Sorachi Ace Hops which come through just enough to give it a nice spice bitterness, and it has some ginger too. It is still very much a wheat beer but with these other flavors it pulls in some flavors similar to a Belgian style tripel. Mouthfeel is full and smooth, with a good bit of carbonation.
