9/3/12. On tap at Kickback’s. Clear golden pour with a nice khaki head that laces a ton. Light wheat and citrus on the aroma with barely a kick of spicy sweetness. Sweet wheat and citrus along with a touch of sweet ginger. There’s also a lingering tannic bitterness. Eh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml bottle. Pours golden with a slim head. The nose has ginger powder or preserved ginger, almost ginger ale if that doesn’t sound too obvious. The taste has more tangy ginger, this time more of the fresh stuff. The palate is medium bodied with a long tight texture and a long tangyu finish. Overall, great balance though slightly missing the wheat aspect.

A perfect beer for autumn, it pours a golden honey color, with a prominent ginger aroma. Ginger and honey come through on the taste as well, as does a slight citrus.
