My brother was kind enough to give me a bottle of Harpoon Ginger Wheat. Based on past ginger beers I’ve had this bottle went to the cellar. Finally got around to drinking it and I must say it was a well made beer. Sweet aroma, lemon zest, ginger slight twang, golden body and brief pillow case head. Not sure how old the bomber of Ginger Wheat was I consumed however it settled into a drinkable spiced wheat beer.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy gold with a delicate medium white head. Aroma is dominated by ginger and honey. Floral, wheat and a little citrus(lemon) also come through. Taste is sweet with a somewhat dry finish with the tartness of citrus coming through on the end. The ginger and honey come through strongly on the taste. I enjoyed this beer as it was very refreshing and went down easy. May be a little much for a session beer with the complexity.

Large bottle. For some reason I’m not really into ginger beers all that much even though I do like the non-alcoholic ones. It seems like the combination of ginger and alcohol tends to give me a headache. That said, this one seems pretty good. A nice crisp wheat beer with the strong smell and taste of ginger. For those who are into this kind of thing they should be pleased. For me, I suddenly have a headache.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle/22 - Poured a slightly hazy straw yellow in color with a tight bright white head that stuck around for a while. Small lacing on the glass. Aroma is of lemon, ginger, unidentifiable spices and a small amount of very floral hops. Flavor is medium of the floral hops with plenty of the ginger, honey and lemon acidity. Finish is quite clean with lingering lemony notes. Clean, balanced and well worth drinking.
