COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shiphead is brewed with organic Peruvian ginger straight out of the rain forest. Coriander and fresh lemon peel channel inspiration from the Belgian Wit style. A liberal dose of malted wheat and a mitt full of Vienna malt give this brew notes of bread and grain that compliment the citrus flavors well.

The beer pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has candied ginger, sharp wheat and a nice roundness. It has a medium body thatís richer than expected and has only a light amount of carbonation. The taste is a mushy version of the aroma with a cobweb sort of thing going on. The finish has a bit more ginger popping. Decent.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a fizzy white head with decent lacing. Aroma of ginger spiciness, citrus and light malt. Taste is heavy on ginger and spice with a good deal of lemon citrus also. Light malt sweetness and tangy wheat character. Light/medium body with medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear pale yellow with a fizzy white head with decent lacing. Aroma of ginger spiciness, citrus and light malt. Taste is heavy on ginger and spice with a good deal of lemon citrus also. Light malt sweetness and tangy wheat character. Light/medium body with medium/high carbonation. While I can appreciate that this is well crafted, Iím not a big fan of the ginger flavor, or beers that are heavily spiced, so I couldnít finish this.

Sampler at the brewery. It poured a hazy blond color with a small white head. The aroma was citrusy and floral with a touch of crisp wheat. The taste was a touch sour with a nice finish, with more malt and light hops. Nice.

RobertDale (5180) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Sample at Boulevardia 2015. Comes a clear pale gold with an average white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, and spice. Taste is lemon, ginger, malt, and grain. A bit too much spice.

unclemike (2853) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Clear copper/orange pour, with a small white head. Aroma has citrusy hops and a bit of wheat in the back ground. Flavor is a crisp and clean, some floral and citrus notes. A little bready on the tail end that leads to a nice tingly bitter finish. Very drinkable, and enough hops to satisfy my cravings.

Light and fresh. Lots of lemony citrusness, though the ginger is the most prominent taste.

Pretty good considering I canít tolerate the gingery-ness of straight ginger beers. So the wheat ale plus ginger beer fusion is a good mix for me. Good carb, light on the tongue and fizzy in the mouth. Not bitter but not too sweet.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 The appearance has a clear light yellow color with a small white head, and the aroma blends ginger and lemon. The taste is mildly sweet and mildly sour with a strong ginger presence, and the palate fuses an average carbonation, medium body, thin texture, and a tart finish.
