Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: kkipple on 01-04-2011

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.

Got this as an extra in a trade with Rlhinson2104, thanks Rebecca.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a snifter glass.

A: Appearance is a golden orange color with a two finger white head.

S: Wow, the coriander is overwhelming on the nose. I get some yeasty notes and some citrus notes and musty Belgian yeast.

T: Follows the nose. The coriander flavor is huge. It gets mixed with a yeasty flavor and some lemon and grassy tones. The yeasty flavors linger as does the coriander. Finish yields the same with some ever so slight hops bitterness.

F: Pretty light mouthfeel with good carbonation and no alcohol.

O: A bit too much for me in the coriander department, but I'm still really glad I got to try it.

This really was a pretty unique flavor. I like it for the same reason that I like Allagash: the flavors are well integrated and the feel is quite nice.

12oz can. Drank this with Jambalaya in Charleston. Greatly refreshing, I didn't pick up on the ginger much. Pours semi-hazy light yellow - a little lighter than other wheats. No head and no lacing. Aroma of citrus and some malt. Flavor is mild grass, lemon (yes, lemongrass), and wheat. Low alcohol, and a very crisp finish make this a great brew for hot summer session.

Appearance: pours honey to light orange colored. a big foamy white head, two fingers, with good retention and leaving a slight lacing behind. fairly hazy but not quite opaque.

Smell: some wheat and mustiness. strong coriander and slight herb to citrus

Taste: opens with a good strong kick of coriander. opens up with some herbaceous to lemony tastes. towards the end a grainy, musty wheat comes through

Mouthfeel: light and dry. a bit to hot on the coriander to be refreshing

Overall: a really good idea but the mixture of the coriander addition and the belgian yeast overloads the taste quite a bit making it a par to slightly sub par wit
