Westbrook Brewing – White Thai

This past week has been quite busy, putting together a new website (still in progress at time of typing this review), dealing with four seasons of weather over a week in North Carolina and just the day-to-day living. My wife came with me this time to choose the two beers to review. First on our list was Westbrook Brewing‘s White Thai.

Sunday tasting with home made shwarma chicken and hummus. Quite delicious.

Wow.  What a beer!  On our pour, the body was a cloudy yellow with a pale head that lingers for a bit due to its Belgian Witbier roots.  The aroma as the glass came up was sweet lemon and ginger, very light but quite intriguing.  On tasting, a clean and bright citrus flavor hits your tongue, with mild herbal notes and a noticeable ginger bite on the back end.  The flavors stayed on the tongue but was not over powering with the lemongrass and ginger.  Westbrook did a wonderful job at adding an asian  twist to a belgian witbier, and it paired well with foods of similar roots.

Rate:  4.5/5

Recipe ideas:  Possibly use this as part of the base in a lemon tart or to marinate tuna, prior to covering in sesame seeds and searing.  Mmmm, seared tuna.
