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.

It pours a golden hue similar to what one would have seen from Angkor Wat's spires rising from the green jungle. The smell of lemongrass scented stir-fries is followed candied ginger desserts. The piercing spice of the bitter hops refreshes the palate. In fact, this beer nearly nails all the peripherals of witbier. But there is no sweetness in flavor; the spiciness of the ginger is refreshing, but one-dimensional. It would be the perfect compliment to anything spicy. But the taste alone is nothing lustrous on its own.

Pours a cloudy/milky gold. One inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight ginger, hint of citrus, hint of hop, and slight yeast. Fits the style of a Witbier. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, pale malt, slight ginger, hint of coriander, yeast, slight citrus, and a hint of hop. Overall, the ginger isn't too strong and the appearance, aroma, and body are good.

Very light hazy color poured in a glass. Mouthfeel is like a typical pale ale/ipa. At first sip you get a very crisp refreshing hop flavor with minimal bitterness. A little citrusy with a perfect blend of spices. Very good and would buy again In a heartbeat.

I picked up a 6 pack of this for my husband, since he's a huge Witbeir person. After his first sip, his comment, was "Damn, this is good". And I'd have to agree. I like Witbeirs, but the White Thai actually reminded me a bit of a Hefeweisen too. It's very smooth, and lightly floral and sweet. I see this as being one of my go to beers to drink at my neighborhood pool.
