Sampled at the Richmond Eleventh. Nose is strait fresh ginger. Very unique. Flavor is ginger and wheat, just like the name. Extra points for trying something new. But this didn’t do much for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first two sips and left scant lace. Pleasant aroma of ginger along with some mild honey sweetness. The flavor really stands out with a well balanced combination of ginger, wheat and sweet honey. This beer goes down way too easily. Mild bitterness at the finish. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow. Aroma is ginger and a hint of peach. Flavor is lightly of wheat, followed by ginger. Not aggresive, pretty balanced. Not bad. Sweetness on the finish detracts a touch.

Nice fresh cut ginger nose. Taste is lightly bitter, lightly sweet with some decent ginger flavor, light honey and cotton candy, some herbal spiciness. Decent stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Harpoon Bar - Logan Airport - Boston, MA. Aroma is a cold salted wet slightly spicy cookie. Pours a rather glazed, uneven tawny amber, with minimal head. Flavor is soft, subtle and unassuming. There’s really just a hint of ginger, a hint of wheat, a good bit of house character and a final flourish of booze. This comes across as incredibly mild. One of the lighter spiced beers. It really feels like a "starter" or "crossover" beer, nothing a true craft beer geek would get excited about, which is odd, considering that this is a 100 Barrel series.

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.
