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.

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!
