Notes/Commercial Description:
A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher.

2.55/5  rDev -32.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

750ml bottle

A- Started off with a nice slightly hazy but mostly clear golden color. It gradually got hazier as I disturbed the yeast at the bottom. Ultimately it finished with a mostly cloudy body. It had a white head but it faded away quickly.

S- Mostly a lemongrass note. There was some nice wheat notes and a slight corriander presence at the end. Nice, but soft aromas

T- Somewhat two-dimensional I could get a good sense of the lemongrass and a decent pop from the coriander, but not much else. Wheat notes were very mild and the orange seemed almost non-existent.

M-Smooth and easy to drink. Liked the level of carbonation in it. Overall though it was very light.

O. Nice it had some interesting flavors to it. All of them were a little too mild and not much really stuck with me.

4.31/5  rDev +14%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Very pleasant white ale with subtle hints of Indian spices. Slightly spicy aftertaste. Obvious citrus and lemongrass notes (as advertised on the bottle). I would consider this to be an ideal summer beer for those new to more complex beers or beers brewed with spices. It would also be a perfectly refreshing complement to very spicy Indian or Thai style food.

A pours a pale straw yellow with good clarity. Nice bright white head with good retention and stick.

S - Bread dough, lemon grass, citrus rind, yeast.

T - Yeast, banana peel, coriander. Easy drinking - light bodied wit bier. Slightly acidic.

O - Nothing overwhelming about this one. Just an easy drinking Belgian style brew.
