Waho-ho-holy shit. Iíve drank white ale to help curb spiciness before. This beer would be a really poor choice for that. This Wahoo variant has a hell of a lot of Thai chili bite and gives this beer an equally pungent nose. While itís balanced well with the wheat and other spices, it will kick your ass if you drink too greedily. You get some juicy citrus notes from the lime and lemongrass and a fair amount of savory coriander. The oils from the lemongrass and chili linger at the finish. Guess which one you notice more... This is artfully done, but still rather intense. Certainly not something for everyone.

2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
A- Chilies, limes, lemongras, ginger.
A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head.
T-Very spicy, lime, chilies.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, spicy finish.
O- This smelled fantastic. Like a bowl of Pho at a Vietnamese joint. Unbelieveable. The flavor was about the same except with a shit ton of chilies in it. Way to spicy and couldnít even finish half a bottle. Too bad itís not more mild.

BO date of March 11. Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Lively carbonation and light body negate any head on this one. Cloudy deep yellow, almost orange color. Iím getting chili foremost in the aroma with a hint of ginger. In tasting the basic white style with sweet and mild wheat. Maybe a hint of lime and ginger. The chili kicks in and lingers for a long time. Refreshing and not too spicy.

Really gingery spicy aroma. Smells like Thai food. Pours a soft of hazy yellow color with a head that vanishes immediately. Really really lively on the tongue. Super sharp. Theyíve nailed the Thai side of it. Super dry. Light body. The flavor is really intense. Overly. Itís out of balance.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy light lemon with a disappearing white head. Aromas of coriander, floral detergent, chili, thai basilika, lime, ginger, citrus. Taste is floral and herbal with massive chili notes. Also some spices. Mouthfeel is thin with low carbonation.
Whatís good: manages to accomplish what it sets out to do, being weird.
What could be better: some more body and better balance.

Sampled at CBC in Clayton. It poured a hazy yellow color with an off-white head. The aroma was of Thai chili, ginger and lime. The taste was similar to the aroma with more Thai chili, a little heat, citrus, herbs and lime. It had a medium body with nice carbonation. Good stuff.

This is an excellent beer. It's got a little kick to it but it doesn't take away from the taste and flavor of the wahoo base. I love this brew!!
