COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Harpoon 100 Barrel Series Ginger Wheat Ale is an ode to brewer Scott Shirley’s favorite spice, ginger. The earthy, warming flavor of this golden-hued ale is derived from fresh ginger. Honey from a local New Hampshire farm yields a slight sweetness to balance the ginger spiciness. A small addition of Apollo hops adds floral notes to the aroma, while a hint of lemon adds acidity and rounds out the ginger flavor. Warm up your chilly winter nights with this ginger spiced beer.

On tap at whole foods NYC. Pours a golden yellow with a white head and aroma of ginger and spices. Taste is heavy on ginger and spices, as well as wheat and malt throughout. Nice, different brew featuring ginger.

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.

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.

Pours a very nice golden honey color in the glass. Very fragrant perfume like ginger aroma. Clean toasted malt flavor followed by a spicy ginger aftertaste. Overall, very nice...

SPDickerman (917) - Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Pours clear golden orange with a large white head. Smells mildly funky with lots of ginger and some subtle wheat notes. Taste is refreshing ginger with sweet wheat character and hints of lemon and honey. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Harpoon 100 Barrel Series #42 - Ginger Wheat finishes with a touch of ginger spiciness.

Ginger, citrus, and grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor starts with malt and grassy hop bitterness Ginger, citrus, and some alcohol in the finish. I love ginger, but if you don’t you won’t like it as much as me.
