Served this Witbier on tap, at the brewery, in a pint glass. This Witbier poured a cloudy yellow color, produced a small white head, poor retention and left little lacing on the glass. The aroma consisted of malted wheat, spicy herbs and citric lemon. Light in body, a foundation of malted wheat, banana, lemongrass, spicy ginger and coriander- there was an evident tea like quality as well. This was an interesting take on a Witbier- Outside of the box ingredients used made for an interesting session beer. Nothing exceptional here, but defiantly worth a try!

A - Cloudy light to medium orange colour. Half a finger of white head formed and reduced to a ring around the glass.
S - Belgian yeast, cloves, spice, lemon.
T - Big Belgian pale ale flavours up front -cloves, Belgian yeast, light banana and a lot of spice. Some lighter lemon and bready malt flavours in the background.

I don't remember that exact ingredients list but lemongrass and Sorachi Ace hops were definitely used. Picked up a growler from Bill's in Summerville.
A. Milky-whitish yellow appearance with a long lasting, thick, white head.
S. The use of the lemongrass and Soarchi Ace hops really bring out a zesty lemon aroma. Phenolic overtones are too prolific for a witbier, they are more in line with a Hefeweissen.
T. Somewhat sweet but also with a dry tart finish. Once again I am picking up phenolic notes that remind me more of a Hefeweissen than a witbier. The lemony zest from the Sorachi Ace hops really makes itself known. It's not a commonly used hop but every time its used its screams lemon.
M. Medium-light bodied. Smooth and light creamy up front with a dry/tart finish. Refreshing for a hot summer day.
D. Its refreshing, tart, with all too much phenolic notes. The lemon character of this beer really stands out. Easy to drink a lot of because of the body and crispness. A decent representation of the style but its off the mark for me.
I really thought it was a cross between a Hefe and a witbier. I look forward to trying his other beers as I've tasted many of his homebrews and know how good of a brewer he is.
