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.

Tap at Ballast Point. The beer pours to a murky yellow body. Aroma of ginger, lime, and wheat. It had a nice wheaty flavor with a subtle ginger and lime. Light heat. Like a tom kha gai soup.

Definite chili pepper aroma. NO head, and zero lacing. Looks like urine in a cup. I had high hopes for this beer, as it sounded like a really cool idea. However, it basically tasted like spicy water.

rlgk (18731) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2016
Draught at Berggrens ltapp, Motala. Clear pale yellow/golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Spicy ginger aroma, chili, hay. Too spicy for me, heavy chili and ginger in the flavor.

BeerdedDave (1407) - Beckley, USA - SEP 12, 2016
pale gold color; citrusy aroma with light ginger notes; a nice smooth wit beer with nice citrus notes and light ginger notes; chili notes come in at the finish- just slightly warm chili notes in the aftertaste; very well done

Light aroma, light (yellow) and clear color, light body, light beer. But spice. Oh yes, spice. And ginger. And chili pepper. Love chilis and ginger. A ton of fruit as well; picking up lemon, lime, orange and banana, mostly in the aroma. Quite complex and good.

bomber - nose chili pepper (habanero to me since I know little about chili taxonomy). This is great: very spicy with some heat, exotic, lime-y, and a tad grainy. My tonsils are not agreeing with this beer as they are tightening up: weird. Maybe I should have started with another beer before trying this one. I dont really get the ginger. I love spicy beers and this is has enough character to keep me interested. Yum! heat overpowers my ability to detect taste, but I get some sweetness from the orange and a little sourness from the lime.

Bottle to tumbler Consummation: Chili, lime, yup...chili and lime. I love chili beers and this isnt really complex but its really hitting the spot. No wahoo is detected (which is a good thing, in my opinion) Adjunct: I also love a beer where palate isnt an also ran, for this one, its the thing. A little sour, but then all spicy; aroma is coriander and chili with light citrus; it still looks like a wahoo though which isnt too inviting. A pale translucent yellow

22oz bomber pours with a clear pale gold body that supports a weak white head. The aroma offers up beer notes followed by chili pepper, floral hops, lavender, lime and then a modest shard of ginger spice. The taste delivers an initial blend of smooth soft sweet malts, some sweetened lime citrus and a building chili pepper meat sensation. The chili pepper note quickly ramps up into chili pepper hot burn all across the palate and reaching a non negligible level. Into the finish, noticeable below the chili pepper burn, is a murmur of flowery ginger spice. Interesting beer but if the chili burn was turned down a notch the improved balance would provide a better drinking experience.

Waho-ho-holy shit. Ive drank white ale to help curb spiciness before. This beer would be a really poor choice for that. This Wahoo variant has a hell of a lot of Thai chili bite and gives this beer an equally pungent nose. While its balanced well with the wheat and other spices, it will kick your ass if you drink too greedily. You get some juicy citrus notes from the lime and lemongrass and a fair amount of savory coriander. The oils from the lemongrass and chili linger at the finish. Guess which one you notice more... This is artfully done, but still rather intense. Certainly not something for everyone.
