Georgeís Bachelor Party September 2013. Great heat and nice beer overall. Canít think of a better way to treat a wheat beer.

Draft at House of Brews - Pours a cloudy golden/yellow with a little white cap. The noise is wheaty, spicy, and a little lime. The taste is nicely balance. Its bready with a mix of the thai spices, ginger, and lime. The heat hits you slightly in the end, nothing over pouring. Iím not a fan of wheats but this is pretty good.

joeneugs (3250) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 22, 2013
On draft at the Livermore Saloon. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. It pours a very pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of wheat with very nice subdued hints of hot chiles and ginger. The flavor is very spicy with good chile burn and a bit of lime tartness to go along the the wheat. The ginger seems to come across a bit on the sweet sideÖ This beer is super spicy and hot, but it works with a smaller base beer. I liked it.

Jow (2159) - New York, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Tap at stags head as part of craziest flavored flight ever. Pours straw colored with pillowy head. Nose of nice Thai traditional flavors. Tastes of Thai chilis like the purple bag of doritoes, with ginger, lime, lemongrass, some malt. Pretty decent kick but not unpleasant and refreshing carbonation..

TimE (3191) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2013
Hazy golden color. Tons of ginger, lime and chili in the nose. The mouth is really refreshing and there is a massive spicy kick at the end. I would say this is the spiciest craft beer Iíve ever had. Really nice though.

DrnkMcDermott (2799) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Sample at Standard Market. I admit, I do like my chiles in my beers. Mix of spices in the nose. Hazy straw color. Taste brings on a light burn of chiles right at the start. Ginger is there, too. Canít quite catch anything resembling lime, except for a note that I usually find with lemonglass, so I guess thatís it. Keeps up a little burn at the back of my mouth, but once swallowed, thereís little after-taste.

Ferris (4253) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
Draft - Lime and chilli powder. Pale cloudy yellow with a tiny white head. Tiny lime and a ton of chilli heat. A bit overboard on the heat. A fun beer, but I could barely finish it.

jcr (2210) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Draft. Clear golden body. Frothy, off-white head. Aroma of ginger, lime, toasted wheat. The flavor is lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly bitter and a lot hot. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. You donít get a lot of time to taste all the ingredients because of the chili.

Anova167 (286) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Pale yellow watery look. Pretty low on the aroma scale...almost nonexistent.flavor is Thai chili heavy but without the heat. A hint of lime in there. Not much beer flavor, but I have had worse attempts at low alcohol beers
