3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2007 Draught sample at ABF on 6/16/07
Didnít expect to like this one much, as I usually donít like beers with multiple spice additions at lower gravities, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Itís not that the spices arenít prominent; they are, but the flavor they create really matches the sticky, honeyish malts and they sink in to the pillowy, chewy body and then are dispersed about the palate by the ample carbonation. Quite homogenized, as well, not being starkly citric, spicy or herbal, but rather zesty and refreshing, with a moderate sweetness and a strong note of bubblegum that was surprising.
Aroma dosent seem to be too strong or complex, allowing mostly ginger with a shade of lime, and very little malt depth.
But the flavor is clean, the body soft, yet attenuated enough for its gravity and lacking of any flaws.
Hazy blonde with some stronger copper tints and a medium-sized white head that laces minimally.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle, courtesy of argo0. Pours a golden orange with slight head. Significant aroma, showing wheat and lemon and what Aaron suggested to be lemongrass. Iíll take his word for it. Medium mouthfeel, some citrus, almost a seeming off-flavor suggesting plastic (?) also appearing in the nose. Something seems awry, but hardly horribly so. A simple, drinkable something.

20080729 Tap at brewpub. Pale, hazy golden with tall white head. Mild sweet lime notes and a punch of ginger. Bit slick to finish. I liked this one best of the visit for its uniqueness and for how appropriate it seemed on this hot day.

Herbal aroma. Really interesting flavor; the Thai herbs and spices come through big time. Itís like drinking liquid Pad Thai without the peanuts, and it is good!

Okay, everything in the deScription, I hate in a beer...but this wasnít half bad. Murky looking wheat beer. The taste was a not half bad american wheat base with a blend of odd spices, ginger was notable, but not overpowering. I canít say I really enjoyed it, but I expected to hate it as this style just isnít my thing. Worth trying.
