COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Thai Chili Wahoo is a favorite in our tasting rooms for its complex balance of heat and spice. Orange and coriander have long been a part of our trademark Wahoo White. In this edition, we added a dose of Thai chilis, even more heat from ginger, and a counterpunch of lime. The flavors in this beer need to be experienced first-hand, so grab one and try it for yourself.

Draught at Berggrens ÷ltapp, Motala. Clear pale yellow/golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Spicy ginger aroma, chili, hay. Too spicy for me, heavy chili and ginger in the flavor.

pale gold color; citrusy aroma with light ginger notes; a nice smooth wit beer with nice citrus notes and light ginger notes; chili notes come in at the finish- just slightly warm chili notes in the aftertaste; very well done

Light aroma, light (yellow) and clear color, light body, light beer. But spice. Oh yes, spice. And ginger. And chili pepper. Love chilis and ginger. A ton of fruit as well; picking up lemon, lime, orange and banana, mostly in the aroma. Quite complex and good.

bomber - nose chili pepper (habanero to me since I know little about chili taxonomy). This is great: very spicy with some heat, exotic, lime-y, and a tad grainy. My tonsils are not agreeing with this beer as they are tightening up: weird. Maybe I should have started with another beer before trying this one. I donít really get the ginger. I love spicy beers and this is has enough character to keep me interested. Yum! heat overpowers my ability to detect taste, but I get some sweetness from the orange and a little sourness from the lime.

Bottle to tumbler Consummation: Chili, lime, yup...chili and lime. I love chili beers and this isnít really complex but itís really hitting the spot. No wahoo is detected (which is a good thing, in my opinion) Adjunct: I also love a beer where palate isnít an also ran, for this one, itís the thing. A little sour, but then all spicy; aroma is coriander and chili with light citrus; it still looks like a wahoo though which isnít too inviting. A pale translucent yellow

22oz bomber pours with a clear pale gold body that supports a weak white head. The aroma offers up Ďbeerí notes followed by chili pepper, floral hops, lavender, lime and then a modest shard of ginger spice. The taste delivers an initial blend of smooth soft sweet malts, some sweetened lime citrus and a building chili pepper meat sensation. The chili pepper note quickly ramps up into chili pepper hot burn all across the palate and reaching a non negligible level. Into the finish, noticeable below the chili pepper burn, is a murmur of flowery ginger spice. Interesting beer but if the chili burn was turned down a notch the improved balance would provide a better drinking experience.

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.

HuskerTan (1700) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Bottle. 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.
