The Harpoon 100 Barrel Series Ginger Wheat Ale is an ode to brewer Scott Shirley’s favorite spice, ginger. The earthy, warming flavor of this golden-hued ale is derived from fresh ginger. Honey from a local New Hampshire farm yields a slight sweetness to balance the ginger spiciness. A small addition of Apollo hops adds floral notes to the aroma, while a hint of lemon adds acidity and rounds out the ginger flavor. Warm up your chilly winter nights with this ginger spiced beer.

Large bottle. For some reason I’m not really into ginger beers all that much even though I do like the non-alcoholic ones. It seems like the combination of ginger and alcohol tends to give me a headache. That said, this one seems pretty good. A nice crisp wheat beer with the strong smell and taste of ginger. For those who are into this kind of thing they should be pleased. For me, I suddenly have a headache.

Pours a slightly hazed gold into a shaker. Bright white micro head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Immediate ginger aromas with some hidden wheat. Crisp ginger from front to back with some wheat fullness into a lasting ginger burn. Very nice.
