COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Thai Chili Wahoo is a favorite in our tasting rooms for its complex balance of heat and spice. Orange and coriander have long been a part of our trademark Wahoo White. In this edition, we added a dose of Thai chilis, even more heat from ginger, and a counterpunch of lime. The flavors in this beer need to be experienced first-hand, so grab one and try it for yourself.

Pours hazy golden yellow with almost no fizz. Smells of citrus and spice. Taste is sweet, citrus, spice. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Ballast Point Thai Chili Wahoo finishes with a lingering spiciness.

Pours a hazy yellow with almost no head. Aroma is heavy chili with notes of ginger and lime. Definitely a hot chili beer.

Aroma of chili assaults the nose. Difficult to smell anything else, although on subsequent sniffs I believe I can detect a hint of lime. Pours a hazy lemon yellow. Very spicy. It is burning the back of my mouth. No doubting this is a chili beer. Not very complex. Cannot taste either the lime or the ginger. The body is light. Carbonation is average. Overall, not a bad beer for a hot day.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained, off white head, with no lacing, over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.........nose is moderate Thai chili, light lemon, stronger lime, minimal malts and hops, balance to the adjuncts.......taste is slightly sweet with light wheat, mild lemon/lime, and heavy Thai chili, light ginger, mild malts and hops, with very heavy long lingering chili heat......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. The base beer is very light and utterly dominated by the chili, with the ginger and lime making lighter contributions. The base beer could use a rework. BJCP 6/2/12/4/6

On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Spicy smell with chili. It really smells thai, like a thai curry. Similar taste. Very spicy and hot with a strong afterburn. Nice in small amounts, a bit too hot for me though.

[8167-20160429] 650mL bottle. Fragrant lime zest fruity floral cleaning products aroma. Slightly hazy, light yellow orange body with a quick foamy white head. Wahoo yes it’s a GD hot chili lemon beer, now get it the fxck outta my mouth. Ugh. Very little patience on this one, but I’m aware I’m not the target customer either. (6/3/1/1/1) 1.2

Glass at the ballast point brewery. Pours a light yellow. Tai chili gives it a nice heat, but it's not too much. Ok.

beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Pours yellow with a greenish tint and a rapidly dissolving head. Yeast, cardamon, coriander, lime, chili and ginger aroma. Yeast, coriander, lime and ginger flavors with a chili finish. Light body and lively carbonation. Better than expected but expectations were low.

jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
2016-04-29. Lightly hazy pale yellow body, nice foamy white head. 3++ Aroma of lime and ginger up front, hints at lemongrass, chili, grassy wheat. 7+ Flavour is lovely for about two seconds, lime and wheat, then a large amount of hot chili. Burns at the back of the throat. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Pleasantly reminds me a bit of a spicy lemongrass soup. Way too much chili for me unfortunately. 7/3/6-7/3/13-14 Bottle shared by Blankboy.
