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.

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.

Bottle from the DWG Majestic. Very light pour with a big white head. Aroma is ginger and wheat. Shocking. Taste is astringent, heavy ginger, and a little lemon, and pepper.

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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light to moderate hay, flowers and perfume for the malt and hops, light soap for the yeast, with notes of honey, ginger and lemon peel. Head is small, fizzy, white with no lacing and is mostly diminishing. Coloris sparkling clear light amber. Falvor starts moderately acidic and the long finish is lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a lively carbonation. All of the adjuncts in this beer stand out nicely in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Picked this up on a whim.
Pours a deep golden color with a stingy white head that dissipates quickly and leaves minimal lacing. The aroma is overwhelmingly ginger with some honey and lemon overtones. At first the smell reminded me of the Japanese steak house then I imagined halls honey lemon cough drops. Taste is more ginger with honey and lemon in there for fun. I got a hint of alcohol in an otherwise dry finish. Slightly syrupy/watery mouthfeel, medium to thin body and carbonation. Well this one isn’t one of my favorites. It grew on me after a while, but reminded me a lot of some gruits I’ve tried. One and done.
