Bottle. Pours clear gold with soapy white head. Aroma of ginger, herbal and spicy. Flavor is much the same with a nice maltiness and light alcohol spice. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, not bad at all buy I probably would enjoy this more if it were a bit on the lighter side in this Texas heat.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice indeed for a cold winter night. Pours a light hazy amber with a big fluffy head. Aroma is ginger snap and lemon. Flavor is similar with a bit of pepper in the back of the throat. Sounds strange but the lemon and ginger work well with the honey to create a very unusual but pleasant beer.

Thanks to HogTownHarry for sharing this. Appearance: Slightly cloudy orange, clean white head. Aroma: Like a ginger chew, somewhat soapy, Harry mentioned a urinal cake and I can’t disagree, very sweet ginger. Flavour: Caramel, ginger, very zingy, quite a soapy finish, weird but good.

tap at the Harpoon bar in Terminal A Logan Airport, in the remote part of Term A. Good aroma, Ginger, honey, spice, citrus, but mainly Ginger. Clean yellowy, brownish orange color, Small head, no lace. Sweet bitter flavor, no as strong as aroma, but all the same characteristics, Lite bosy, smooth mouthfeel, sweet finish. Tasty I must say, while I guess the ginger is in the holiday spirit, this would be a decent summer brew in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, short lived off white head, with some lacing, over a clear dark gold (SRM 6) body....nose is wheat malts, light citrus, ginger....taste is lemon, ginger, light wheat, finishing with a light bitterness and an almost chili burn, later as it warms there is a light floral honey tone....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation high with an almost soda quality. This is an American Wheat with a ginger addition. It is not particularly complex nor interesting and the ginger is too dominant. BJCP 6/3/11/4/6

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.

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.
