Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 21, 2012
On tap at the Old Grove location. Light pale yellow with decent haze. Nose is yeast and lime and Ginger. Up front taste is high tart sweet. Lotsa lime and a good dose of Ginger. Clean and bright. High fresh chili pepper bite comes in late and stays to party after the beer is long gone. Not overpowering or off-putting, but obvious. Nice beer.

rosenbergh (8123) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 25, 2015
Draught at the Ballast Point Tasting Room. Cloudy yellow colour with a small white head. Ginger, spices and pepper in the aroma. The flavour is pepper all over... some yeasty notes in the background. Spicy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BP night at cap tap... Slightly hazy yellow in color... Aroma of spicy Thai chili peppers, wheat malts, lime zest... Flavor is Belgian wit initially, followed by chili peppers and lime with lots of pepper burn on finish.. Interesting but more of a novelty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alphadelic (1866) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 11, 2015
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.

GarrettB (1170) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 29, 2014
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
