650 ml bottle, session #42. Bright honey gold color topped by a large bubbly white head. Fragrant ginger, lemon aroma. Dryish ginger and honey flavor. Reminds me of a cough drop. Light body and flavor. Tasty and refreshing. Brief dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours hazy and golden with about a fingerís worth of foam and then falls off to some nice lace. It smells like ginger. I love it already. Nose is light malt and light citrus wheat and ginger. As it warms some banana and lemon. Itís pretty subtle. The taste is awesome with a full wheat base against the spicy ginger and the gentle hops. Even had a bit of toasted bread in the finish. Itís creative and not the usual fare. Itís slightly sweet and mouthfeel is soft and pleasant with a bit of citrus to wash it down. No alcohol on the palate it finishes simple and pale. Wheat is a refreshing beer and with the ginger itís both warming and crisp. Sensational and very original. I paired this with striped bass.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from the tap into a tasting glass.
The smell is sweet with a nice light ginger flavor and some hints of lemon zest and corriander.
The taste is pretty close to ginger ale and has a good ammount of carbonation to give it a fissy flavor as well. Lemon flavor pokes out a bit with a slight honey flavor as well.
The feel of this beer is really light and enjoyable. The carbonation is like a soda a bit so it does remind you of ginger ale a bit. Goes down easy and is quite thirst quenching.

A perfect beer for autumn, it pours a golden honey color, with a prominent ginger aroma. Ginger and honey come through on the taste as well, as does a slight citrus.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz Bottle. Pours a pale cloudy yellow with a big white head. Smells nice, like lots of fresh ginger, with a touch of yeast and citrus underneath. Taste has bitter yeast and citrus, with a background of ginger thatís not nearly as appealing as the aroma. Finish is a bit underwhelming, thin with an unsatisfying bitterness.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright yellow color, and I smell ginger, clove, white bread. I taste ginger, yeast, orange, and a bitterness of hops in the finish. Almost like a beer ginger ale, decent beer.....

A very quaffable beer; has enough body and strength to pair with food, or enjoy alone. Had on tap at Plan B, aroma of - you guessed it - ginger; some spice and malt in there as well. Flavor follows the aroma. Itís a solid summer brew. Of the three 100 Barrel series Iíve had this year (Spruce Tip ale, Maple wheat, and Ginger wheat), this has been by far the best and most balanced.

Ginger lends earthy quality to the subtle flavor of the wheat. Lots of ginger in the nose. Well-balanced.

I'm not a big wheat drinker (unless I'm in Germany) mainly due to wheat beer burnout in my formative drinking years. That being said, I really dug this beer-- a wheat foundation with some complex lemon, ginger, and honey notes that makes this a crisp and interesting drink. Note: this was listed as #42 on the label.
