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.

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

12 oz can from the fridge poured into a tulip glass.

A - hazy straw colored body with a very thin white head. Expected more foam. Good amount of sediment from the yeast.

N - can definitely smell the ginger along with Belgian yeast and citrus .

T - relatively subdued flavors include ginger, hops, and Belgian yeast.

M - good carbonation and aftertaste.

O - pretty good variant on a classic style. Cheers!

Another refreshing beer from Westbrook. Pretty standard for the witbier style.

poured from 12 oz can into snifter
A- hazy golden color with a moderate white bubbly head
S- lemon, spice, biscuit, a bit of ginger.
T- A little malty sweetness, some spiciness, wheat malt
M- Light feel, decent carbonation, easy sipper
O- Nice different take on the old Belgian Wit. Spicier than normal plus the Sorachi hops give it that lemony appeal.
