BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Westbrook Brewing Co.
South Carolina, United States

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Had this at the brewery. Not up to all the hype that is around Chas. Average wit. Cant really taste the ginger or lemongrass. Try their IPA. Its the best one they have. Very thin beer. Seems to be common with their beers.Color was on par with a wit. Smell was also very weak

Had on tap at Amen in Charleston, SC. This was a strange witbier, in which the flavors that were advertised did not come through.

Took a growler home from the brewery. Cracked it when it was a week old. Good head retention with an average golden hue. Aroma is nothing to speak of. Very little spiciness to it. Getting a bit of wit type yeast aroma, but very low on the lemony or ginger notes. Aroma is best described as flat. The beer is clean, actually a bit too clean with an unbalanced bitterness that just doesn't fit with a refreshing wit type brew. Swampy finish with a bit of muddled earthy ginger flavor. Overall not a favorite. If you're looking for a refreshing wit in charleston mothership from new belgium and allagash white are readiy available and preferable.
