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.

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 Point’s Thai Chili Wahoo is an admirable beer, I’m sure, with a lovely smell of japaño and tortilla. But the taste is really, caustically hot. It’s brutal, and I’m 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 it’s not something I can digest.

a pretty tasty beer. Flavor is strongly thai green chili; don’t 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

"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."

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.

Smells like a wheat beer, looks like a wheat beer. The real surprise is when you taste it, lime flavors with a hot spicy finish, love spicy beers!

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a hazy golden, slight orange color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have wheat and yeast from the base beer with the addition of lime, citrus, ginger, Thai spices and a solid kick from the chili peppers in the finish. The additional ingredients took a very average beer andmade it interesting. Lots of flavor at 4%.
