This is a pretty assertive offering where the general essence and body are reminiscent of a strong IPA. But when you get done swishing it around and begin tasting it, it is evident that it is not hops, but spicy ginger that fills the mouth. The alcohol was well hidden, I thought. I couldn’t really get any sense of the profile of the wheat beer itself, as everything was centered around the ginger. Not bad.

Way better than I expected. Not nearly as over-the-top as most ginger beers--this is a beer first and foremost with a little ginger spice balancing out the flavor and the finish. First thing I’ve tried from this brewery--will try more if I can get my hands on it.

This was better than expected as the ginger was pretty subtle (thankfully - not a fan of ginger beers). Instead this was a lot like a nice weizenbock. Sweet wheat, candy and malts. Tasty beer. Thanks JM for this one.
