Tap at Ballast Point. The beer pours to a murky yellow body. Aroma of ginger, lime, and wheat. It had a nice wheaty flavor with a subtle ginger and lime. Light heat. Like a tom kha gai soup.

Solid belgian wheat aroma, but of bread, fruit and dryness come together very nicely. The spicing is relaxed to begin with, building, after the first third of the glass, to a nice warmth in the throat that keeps you going back for more. I really enjoyed this and would love it with dinner.

On tap at New World Tavern. A light golden brew. Peppery aroma and flavors. Light citrus and ginger notes. Not something Iíd order again.

Tap at brewery. Pours hazy, bright gold with white head. Aroma is wheat, chilis, citrus peel, ginger, and bready notes. Flavor is dry malt profile with some yeast esters and light citrus fruit notes before the spice character begins to slowly build up leaving a slight burn that lingers. Medium body.

June 1, 2013 - Beers like this make me acutely sensitive to how wimpy my palate is. Ballast Pointís Thai Chili Wahoo is an admirable beer, Iím sure, with a lovely smell of japaŮo and tortilla. But the taste is really, caustically hot. Itís brutal, and Iím happy to pass it off to a friend with a leather tongue. These brews tend to vary batch-by-batch, and maybe this was an especially brutal brew, but itís not something I can digest.

a pretty tasty beer. Flavor is strongly thai green chili; donít taste much of the lime. I like the effect, but the taste has some disjointed moments when the spice hits the wheat.

jonnyguns (1096) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2014
Draft at Ballast Point. Pours a straw yellow with minimal head. Nose has citrus, lime, chilli and ginger. Very appealing nose. Taste is very much like a thai chilli and lime salad. Lovely fresh flavours. Nice chilli burn. A lot going for the low abv. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 "Improves significantly on an already nice hefe. Great aroma, flavor and cool factor. Mild-moderate chili, nice thai ginger and lime presence. Just a tasty light treat." not as spicy in recent incarnations

On tap at The Brass Tap, poured a cloudy golden yellow color with aromas of wheat, light lime and a touch of heat. Flavors were wheat up front with some nice lime, and spicy chilis on the back end. A nice take on a wheat beer, that was quite enjoyable.
