3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Robert brought this one back from a trip to Spokane Washington. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow color with a huge creamy yellow-whit head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was chamomile, ginger powder, wheat, dry malts and perfume. The flavor was ginger powder, chamomile, tart citrus, perfume and had a musty presence. Medium length musty finish of ginger, chamomile and perfume. Medium body. Decent.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Buttered pastry in the aroma, a little hint at wheat beer yeast. Pours very light with definite cloudiness. Flavor is soft with some buttered pastry, some sour notes and not quite as crisp as I would expect. There are some light banana notes and equal amount of muted clove. A little green and slightly grassy. Finish ends a little sour and a slightly watery.

On draft at Spurs Bar and Grill in Ellensburg, WA. Pours a hazy gold color with a good sized white head. Nose of spices including ginger. Medium body. Light mouthfeel. Flavor is more ginger than anything but shows some banana. No clove as you might expect from a hefe. Bit odd overall but drinkable.

Bomber bought at Albertsonís in Hayden. Aroma consists of light banana, dough, ginger. Pours cloudy yellow with a fast-disappearing white big-bubbly head. Taste is...odd. Itís spicy, lemony, meaty, dry, watery. The gingerís fairly strong. Creamy mouthfeel and a thin body. This could have had a lot more potential.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Muddy golden, lots of sediment floating about, thin whispy head, no lacing.   Probably sat on
this too long.   Spicy nose, noticeable Ginger, also seems like some pink peppercorn.   Smooth sweet gingery
flavor right up front, somewhat wheaty... body is somewhat flat.   Yeah, has a sweet wheat like aspect without
being heavy.   Unfortunately lacks carbonation.   Ginger adds a nice touch.   Finish reminds me of an aged
Belgian Ale, very musty and basement like.   I was totally thinking this was going to be a boring American Wheat
Ale, but instead this turned out to be more of a treat.   I can tell that even tho I sat on this one too long that
it would have been stellar if I tried it when I initially bought it.

overall disappointed, especially coming from a guy who loves a strong hefe. wasnít strong and hazy but rathered poured like a pilsner. lacking all wheat flavors I needed and didnt pack any after taste. I almost thought I was drinking a budlight. very disappointed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazed light golden pour, white head thatís rather small for a hefe. Ginger on the nose, along with lemon and honey. Very gingery flavor, light, slightly creamy feel to it. Iím a huge fan of ginger candies, and this has a similar flavor: strong sweetness and a gingery bite, plus some citrus character behind it. Thereís also a little clove and banana hefe character, but itís pretty hidden behind the gingeriness. This isnít great as a hefe, but itís a very good ginger beer.

The aroma is sweet with hints of ginger. This beer is a rich, golden color. The flavor continues the sweet ginger aroma with a little bit of citrus.
