White Thai is a white ale that leaves out the orange peel and coriander and, instead, they add fresh lemongrass, ginger root, and a dash of Sorachi Ace hops. This means that they step out of the box and it should be delicious. So, sweet, spicy, candy-like, delicious, etc. I’d never heard of Westbrook Brewing but Spencer says they have some great stuff. Their big ticket item is their Gose, but I’m reluctant to try Goses. I like some sour beer but I don’t know. I’ve had one I liked (and I can’t even remember which one) and many that I didn’t. Anywhat! I’m hoping for good things with this brew. It’s light on the ABV, coming in at only 5%. I’m hoping the flavors will out-weigh the light end.
BeerAdvocate rates it at 86 (Very Good) with no Bros Score. Untappd has it at 3.55 caps out of 5. Have you had this beer? If so, I’d love to hear what you think of it. If you haven’t, run down to 915 Burke Street and grab your sixer. Tell Spencer that this is the beer of the week and get 5% off your order. Then tune into The Less Desirables tomorrow (or later tonight) and see what Caitlin, Bruce, Scott Needham and I think of this beer. Slàinte !
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“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.” – Westbrook Brewing’s White Thai description
