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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear golden color with a big white head that dissipates quickly. The smells is very sweet with lemon and grass. Also clove is detected. The Taste is mostly a combination of the grass and lemon. It is very interesting, I dont like it but I dont hate it. The beer is very drinkable and has a good mouthfeel. Overall decent but didnt win me over to buy it regularly. Its definitely more of a summer beer too.

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.
