Real ginger and lemongrass flavor this light and refreshing wheat ale. One of the original brews at the Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery in Boca Raton. Pairs excellently with sushi, Vietnamese, and Thai food.

On draft at the Buddha, pouurs a clear light golden yellow color, aromas of wheat, ginger, and lemon. Flavors follow suit, light refreshing and nice for a hot night out. Lemongrass is not overpowering nor is the ginger. A nice beer overall.

On draft at the Buddha, poured a hazy/cloudy yellow with a great ginger aroma. I thought by the smell the ginger would be overpowering, however it blended well with the wheat beer base. A nice beer that would go well wih Japanese food, the after taste reminded me of the ginger sauce you get at a Japanese steak house.

On draft at the Buddha. Somewhat cloudy with a hazy yellowish color. Good carbonation with a nice fluffy head. Aroma has a good bit of ginger mixed with a little bit of sugar, reminds me somewhat of a ginger candy, but not overly sweet. Very tasty and refreshing.

On tap at Funky Buddha. Iíve been awaiting this beer release for some time. It seems that I somehow I always just miss it. The base beer is the Floridan so that would explain a lot of the banana aroma I got from the first whiff. It has a nice lemon/ginger zest to it as well. The carbonation was a little off IMO and it almost reminded me of a flat Sprite. Itís still a good beer, donít get me wrong.

Mini Growler thanks to my Uncle! Shared with Yanick. Pours cloudy yellow. White head. Nose and taste of an Asian stir fry! Lots of ginger, wasabi, lemongrass, wheat and spices. Smooth. Very sessionable. This just works. It shouldnít, but it does.

Draft - Sweet and pickled ginger. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Pickled ginger light heat and a clean finish. Ginger is really showcased well.

Tap at Hunahpu 2011. The pour is a cloudy, dirty deep yellow with no head formation. Aroma is heavy ginger root, lemon, bay leaves. Taste is heavy medicinal, lots of sugary sweetness with sharp ginger spice. Creates an instant headache. Really a nice idea but not executed very well. Iím a big fan of ginger, but Iím not sure how this is different from just ginger tea with lots of sugar added. Probably would be better to first make a good sour mash wheat beer with a little acidity and then add in freshly cut ginger in the mash and again in secondary. The sweet base beer is just not very good so the ginger really is just hiding it.
