COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

[2778-20100219] Bottle. Ginger hand soap aroma is quite pungent and hints a little at urinal puck. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Ginger urinal cake continues in the flavour and stays very floral. Medium body. Odd floral, very odd.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Lemony ginger aroma with some honey sweetness. The flavor has fresh sharp ginger, lemon, and a light sweetness. I’m not usually too keen on ginger flavored beers but this one hit me the right way for some reason. Very refreshing.

drowland (7803) - Georgia, USA - SEP 9, 2012
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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Pours a transparent effervescent golden with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of sweet ginger and light caramel with a touch of bananas. Starts with decent fullness and light caramel and candied ginger sweetness with a touch of doughy yeast before a drier, smooth finish. A pretty decent brew.

Bottle [22oz] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size diminishing off-white head. Aroma of ginger (yay, I love ginger!) and soap (boo!) -- so what could’ve been great is only O.K. Flavour of ginger and some grain -- I like it. Average bodied. Pretty good overall.

nimbleprop (7096) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 14, 2009
22oz bottle shared at the DC Local tasting. Pours a totally clear, yellow gold with a cloudy white head. Strong aroma of ginger, all spice, nutmeg and one person remarked "a little household cleaner." Flavor is big, right on the tongue, raw ginger. There’s some sweetness too. Dry finish with some spicy ginger heat. If you like ginger then this is for you.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6484) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2013
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy apricot color with a medium sized soapy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was wheat, ginger and dryish clove. The flavor was wheat, clove, nutmeg, ginger powder and pepper. Medium length dry ginger powder and nutmeg finish. Medium body. Ok.
