Deep amber pour. The aroma is quite fruity with a lot of strawberry on the back. The finger is quite subtle and is accented by a little bit of malt sweetness as well. Some slight white pepper spice and some light earthy bitterness. It’s a unique twist - and has some complexity as well. Nicely done.

A quite surprising beer. Fruit (strawberry) is there, but doesn’t overpower. Ginger is sometimes forward, sometimes not (other reviewer mentioned the same thing, hmmm.) Extremely refreshing and quaffable beer. Could use a bit more carbonation, which would make it one of my summer faves.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours a hazy copper-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Nice aroma of wheat, light strawberries, light grain, yeast and a hint of spice. Refreshing, clean flavour of wheat and strawberries along with a hint of honey. Average bodied. Well done, on a hot day like today, this is refreshing and a joy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-06-22. Hazy pastel yellow orange body with a small white head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, touch of wheat? Mango/peach like fruit character. Flavour is mild, lightly fruity, almost mango or tropical fruit like notes? Peach like tartness in the undertones. Average plus bodied palate, light carbonation. Quaffable, mild. I didn’t really notice ginger in it until someone else pointed it out. Their sample had far more ginger than mine did which is interesting - Either the samples varied or my taste buds are a bit off today! Session Festival 2013

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazed blonde wit with a thin white head. In aroma, mix of strawberry and banana with light chalky notes, not bad. In mouth, a light wit with strawberry notes, mineral notes, ok.

Well-balanced. Pours light brown, cloudy with good head and lacing. Strawberry and ginger interact well but not a big taste here. Good beer to drink but light. Slightly sour finish. Tap at Session.
