2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured a cloudy straw color, with a large creamy head, light lace. Nose is wheat, ginger, and sweet malt. Taste is similar, with the wheat and ginger, but some breadiness and yeast notes as well. Some light fruit notes. Really not that interesting. Mouth was light and subtle. Carbonation was mild. Overall, an okay brew.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Light to moderate wheat aroma.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle - $2.49 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a nearly clear, golden-orange body with a smallish, tepid, white head.
Smell: Weak whiffs of malted wheat, tart citrus fruits, and some stray ginger particles. Pretty plain all around.
Taste: Uber-light pale malts and a soft taste of wheat, faintly sweet, and with a light underlying tartness. A bit flat in the hop department, with only the merest hints of spicy and citrus. Very low bitterness. The ginger doesn’t add much, if any flavor, really, but does imparts a tiny bit of that characteristic ginger sting. Thinning, watery finish that goes beyond being simply clean.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: Surely being a light and refreshing wheat beer doesn’t also guarantee blandness. Surely?! And the ginger-- they added a flavoring agent and the beer still comes up way, waaayy short.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pression @ OTH.
Dorée, mousse épaisse blanche.
Arôme de blé, levure et de moût.
Goût, léger au palais, douce avec un aspect sucré, note de céréale; blé assez faible et un palais trop liquide avec qcq nuances de fruits.
Qcq notes de pelure d’orange (bonbon),mais avec un fini terreux et de citronnelle suivit de fine amertume, sucre brun? laisse une impression de bonbon acidulé.
Pas mauvaise, juste très légère.

Draft at Sweet Spot. Clear gold with foamy white head. Aroma of white toast and puke. Mostly inoffensive delicate malt and cracker plus a touch of soupy vegetative flavor. Pleasantly rich body but slightly curdling finish.
