COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Harpoon 100 Barrel Series Ginger Wheat Ale is an ode to brewer Scott Shirleys favorite spice, ginger. The earthy, warming flavor of this golden-hued ale is derived from fresh ginger. Honey from a local New Hampshire farm yields a slight sweetness to balance the ginger spiciness. A small addition of Apollo hops adds floral notes to the aroma, while a hint of lemon adds acidity and rounds out the ginger flavor. Warm up your chilly winter nights with this ginger spiced beer.

9/3/12. On tap at Kickbacks. Clear golden pour with a nice khaki head that laces a ton. Light wheat and citrus on the aroma with barely a kick of spicy sweetness. Sweet wheat and citrus along with a touch of sweet ginger. Theres also a lingering tannic bitterness. Eh.

AshtonMcCobb (6397) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 27, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours golden with a slim head. The nose has ginger powder or preserved ginger, almost ginger ale if that doesnt sound too obvious. The taste has more tangy ginger, this time more of the fresh stuff. The palate is medium bodied with a long tight texture and a long tangyu finish. Overall, great balance though slightly missing the wheat aspect.

A perfect beer for autumn, it pours a golden honey color, with a prominent ginger aroma. Ginger and honey come through on the taste as well, as does a slight citrus.
