Singapore

3.68/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a mildly translucent, hazy golden with a fairly thick, foamy white head that quickly reduces to a thin clingy layer with active bubbling in the liquid below (4)

S - Herbal spices with a citrus zest; clear notes of nutmeg with wheat in the background (3.5)

T - Loads of spices upfront backed with wheat malts, arriving at a citrusy, lemony middle leaving slightly sour notes which lasts towards the a lightly fruity finish with some hints of pear (3.5)

M - Light to medium bodied, with carbonation slightly on the high; foamy smooth and goes down dry (4)

D - Interesting blend of spices manifesting in the nose and on the palate. Refreshing and drinkable as a Witbier should be but guess I'd prefer it a tad less sour (4)

4.23/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

a pretty famous beer here, it has eluded me somehow until now. picked this up under 6 bucks over at colorado liquor mart, who is still chugging along with some hidden gems in the back there. a nice take on a wit, different than almost all of them because of (what i perceive anyway) this fresh ginger in here. a blonde beer with a golden flare, clear for the style, and while there are a ton of bubbles in it, no head really ever builds up. the nose is almost like ginger ale, its so potent to me, i have to believe there is real ginger in it. belgian type yeast is also fruity, while some malt other than wheat i think makes an appearance, giving some light caramel flavors as a base. ginger and cracked pepper in the finish, this could pass as a saison on the yeast character alone, less belgian than saison in that regard. super refreshing, and even though it looks flat, there are a lot of bubbles here in solution. my first beer from this operation is a winner, i like this a lot, different from the masses but still comfortably within what the style asks for. perfect hot weather refresher. super dig it.
