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.

Butters (3763) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Sampled at the Richmond Eleventh. Nose is strait fresh ginger. Very unique. Flavor is ginger and wheat, just like the name. Extra points for trying something new. But this didn’t do much for me.
