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.

Another refreshing beer from Westbrook. Pretty standard for the witbier style.

Tasty-ish witbier, in which I get the lemongrass notes, perhaps aided by the Sorachi Ace hops, but not as much the ginger. Overall, I think Upslope's Thai-style IPA gets the balance of Thai flavors a little better and doesn't get bogged down in mustiness, as this one can do. Still, not a bad effort, and I appreciate the attempt to do something different.

poured from 12 oz can into snifter
A- hazy golden color with a moderate white bubbly head
S- lemon, spice, biscuit, a bit of ginger.
T- A little malty sweetness, some spiciness, wheat malt
M- Light feel, decent carbonation, easy sipper
O- Nice different take on the old Belgian Wit. Spicier than normal plus the Sorachi hops give it that lemony appeal.

Can from Lazy Dog in Warner Robins. Pours hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Pleasant aroma of wheat malts, bit if yeast funk, ginger, lemon peel, and some additional spice notes. Flavor is light wheat malt sweetness, spices, good amount of yeasty notes, lemon peel, apples. Light bodied with medium plus carbonation. Easy drinking wit with a little flare. Not bad.

From a can, pours a clear light yellow with a white fizzy head, very active carbonation.

The nose is ginger, lots of earthy grains and wheat, lemongrass, and just a faint citrus hop content. The flavor is pretty unique, lots of ginger, lemon, vegetables, grass and hay. There is more citrus on the finish as you drink it.

This is pretty good, sessionable, I don't like ginger in my beer, so this isn't something I would drink over and over, but you certainly could if you liked it.
