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.

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.

A bit old now so not best condition. Pours orange with little head or lacing. Nose is light ginger and yeast. Aromas same but with touch of honey and a slight grassy hop bitterness. Light body with lively carbonation.

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.

Fantastic! I love ginger - the spice is subtle and the beer is surprisingly refreshing, not sticky, not sweet. They hit a home run with this one.
