Lagunitasfan (1318) - 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.

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.

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%.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good; a hazy golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells tart, wheaty, and yeasty with notes of ginger. Tastes like it smells with some pepper spiciest as well. Average on the palate. Alright, but not really my thing.

DrSilverworm (6817) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s. Totally hazy golden orange door. Thin off-white head. Leaves loose dots of lace. Nice citrusy, lightly peppery nose, good belgian wit yeast aromas. Bright, orange citrus in the nose. Some lime in the finish of the flavor. Nice ginger in the body, and an awesome chili pepper kick in the finish. Moderate sweet taste, aside from the chili heat at the back palate. Very nice combo overall. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. Slick mouthfeel - probably largely due to the pepper making my mouth water. Very tasty, interesting stuff.

mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours pale whitish yellow, somewhat hazy with a white head. Aroma is a cocktail of spice and fruitiness. The lime, ginger, and chilli all seem to jive well together with none of them taking over from the others. The spiciness is certainly there, but this doesn’t completely kill your palate like ghost face killa. The base beer is hard to find in all the additions.

ARH (520) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2014
On tap poured into a 4 oz sampler. A wonderful aromatic combination of sweet orange and lemon, with a nice lighter chili and lime note greet the nose. It’s a very hazy pale with a white head that reduces to a couple puffs, but doesn’t leave any lacing. It’s a really refreshing balance between a light sweetness and spicy hot bitterness. It’s light body is very effervescent and thin in the mouth and is complemented by a nice, full spicy warmth mouth coating at the finish with perhaps a touch of resin. This spiciness lingers for a long time - like just eating a bunch of hot salsa - so be careful about where this gets mixed into a sampling session
