A: Hazy orange color, 1/2 inch off white head, good lacing

S: Ginger, clove, spices, bread

T: Ginger is real pronounced, I get the spiciness of the belgian yeast, has a good amount of malty sweetness to balance.

M: Medium

O: I like this beer, just a little too much ginger for my taste. I like the spiciness and malty balance.

Bottle. CBF pint.

A: pours a hazy golden hue with one finger white head that recedes to a thin skim. Excellent lacing.

S: light malt and somewhat yeasty. Pretty clean; not getting the phenolic note I'd expect. Some mild orangey citrus.

T: light and malty witbier taste, some tart citrusy notes, with spicy ginger kick. This is really good. Clove phenols are mild and express mostly at the end, along with a little mandarin orange peel, but the ginger is potent and clearly is the star of the show.

M: medium weight, slick texture, relatively high carbonation. Very nice.

O: a lot of beers with adjuncts are just a gimmick, but this is good and actually works. It might be a little taxing on the palate to drink a lot of these, but as a one off, I really like it.

First beer I had from Monday Night. Tried it at first at room temp. Bad idea. Chilled it's perfect for after a hot day working in the yard.

Poured from the tap at the Distillery in Savannah, Georgia. The appearance is a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly ginger. The taste follows the nose. A very good beer, i think it would score higher if the amount of ginger used was cut back a little to allow the traditional witbier flavors to be more pronounced.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and great lacing. Smells of sage, herb, hint of cream, slight yeast, hint of rosemary, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of a Witbier. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of rosemary, sage, slight cinnamon, slight pale malt, slight cream, hint of hop, hint of caramel malt, and yeast. Overall, decent appearance and aroma, but good body, blend, and feel.

Pilsner-like dark gold with a finger of white head. Strong lemongrass and coriander in the aroma, which carry over to the crisp taste, rounded out by some biscuity malts. Fairly light bodied. Refreshing.
