3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is a bit funky but has a bit of ginger and honey. The appearance is golden with a thin head. The taste is like aroma with a malty finish. The palate is smooth. Overall it’s good but muted I seem to have a thing for ginger.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super hazy golden coloured body with a very thin, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of ginger (of course), malt, wheat, coriander seed and a bit of lemons - but the ginger is potent and strong. Medium-bodied; Super strong ginger flavour with a good wheat and yeast flavour soon afterwards with a deep, pungent spice note at the end. Aftertaste is strong and bitter with the ginger and a bit of sweetness coming through. Overall, a strong and potent wheat with a ton of ginger flavours - nice, but perhaps a bit too potent. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 09-June-2012 for US$6.50 sampled at home in Washington on 30-July-2012.

Draft at Harpoon Tasting Room. Pale golden yellow, foamy head. Big ea and herbal aroma, huge ginger tea over light wheat body. Good mild bodied beer. Not my favorite flavors for such a beverage but they did taste good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked this up at Harpoon Brewery in Windsor. Enjoyed at fridge temp in a wine goblet.
A - Slightly darker than straw color. Small head that fades fast.
S - Big ginger scent on the nose and lemon citrus. Barely any discernable wheat scent. Smells like flat ginger-ale. Sort of nice.
T - Spicy and intense ginger at the start. This is followed by a spruce tip or maple syrup sweetness. Followed by a very floral / wheaty citrus taste. Pretty pleasant.
M - 50% carbonation on the mouth swish. Light body. Slight piney finish but mostly ginger.
O - Delicious but the ginger wears on you with this bomber format.

I'm not a big wheat drinker (unless I'm in Germany) mainly due to wheat beer burnout in my formative drinking years. That being said, I really dug this beer-- a wheat foundation with some complex lemon, ginger, and honey notes that makes this a crisp and interesting drink. Note: this was listed as #42 on the label.

Bottle. Pours an average golden yellow with a nose of hay, grass, and bleached wheat. Flavor is grassy biscuit and light honey-glazed hay. Watery on the tongue. Ginger? I’ve seen more in a brunette-on-brunette lesbian flick.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden with a huge frothy cream colored head that leaves moderate lacing. Plenty of ginger in the aroma, with some citrus and wheat. Taste is lightly sweet and spicy, but there’s not much to it. Medium bodied, smooth, and somewhat dry. Too bad it isn’t as good as it smells.
