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.

Appearance; color is an opaque straw, pours a finger of white head that dissipates fairly quickly, save for a thin layer of bubbles as well as a ring of lacing.

Smell; fairly mild belgian yeast upfront, along with orange peel. cloves and coriander.

Taste; Nearly identical to the smell, first taste is belgian style spices such as cloves and coriander, orangy citrus follows, yeast and faint, toasty maltiness in the backbone, the finish is pure wheat.

Mouthfeel; Overall body is light, the beer is slightly crisp at first, then comes a chalky dryness, but creaminess lingers on the tongue at the end.

Overall; if i had access to this beer in my area, this would probably be an occasional repurchase, particularly in the summer, to me this beer is what Blue Moon tries to be, a flavorful, light, casual drinking experience.

A: Body is hazy golden with -1.5 finger bright white head. Good lace.

S: Smells of spice - ginger and coriander come to mind readily.

T: First impression is the light body. As for flavors, I get a modest wheat twang over straw. Touch of ginger, lemongrass and spice. Finishes quite clean with modest lemony bitterness.

M: Light in heft, an easy drinker with appropriate carbonation levels.

O: Refreshing summer quaffer.
