look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2
Appearance: Very very pale; no yeasty cloudiness, just a light haze. Almost green in color. Not much head retention, and little to no lacing.
Aroma: Not much to see here; a little lemon, a little funk, but not much else.
Taste: A shadow of a witbier. It has a light witbier nose and finish, but not much in between. A little tartness, a fair amount of bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel: light, not much here. A little bit more carbonation than I would have expected, but that didn't translate into head retention.
Overall: I guess this a "thirst quencher". I don't get much of a flavor from it; maybe the keg this growler was poured from was old. I definitely wouldn't want to pay the normal DFH price for this in a bomber. This is, to put it diplomatically, a lot more "delicately flavored" than most of the DFH offerings. I feel like I was let down; I expect DFH to push the envelope, to go into bold new directions. Instead, they've gone bland.
Again, it's possible I got a bad sample; but I live in Delaware and bought this at a decent store. I'm glad I didn't buy it in (more expensive) bomber format, or I would have been really disappointed.
Serving type: growler

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.
