Draft at Harpoon Tasting Room. Pale golden yellow, foamy head. Big ea and herbal aroma, huge ginger tea over light wheat body. Good mild bodied beer. Not my favorite flavors for such a beverage but they did taste good. gripweed57 (2461) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2012
650 ml bottle, session #42. Bright honey gold color topped by a large bubbly white head. Fragrant ginger, lemon aroma. Dryish ginger and honey flavor. Reminds me of a cough drop. Light body and flavor. Tasty and refreshing. Brief dry finish. rejtable (2680) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2013
A bit old now so not best condition. Pours orange with little head or lacing. Nose is light ginger and yeast. Aromas same but with touch of honey and a slight grassy hop bitterness. Light body with lively carbonation. OldGrowth (3474) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2009
tap at the Harpoon bar in Terminal A Logan Airport, in the remote part of Term A. Good aroma, Ginger, honey, spice, citrus, but mainly Ginger. Clean yellowy, brownish orange color, Small head, no lace. Sweet bitter flavor, no as strong as aroma, but all the same characteristics, Lite bosy, smooth mouthfeel, sweet finish. Tasty I must say, while I guess the ginger is in the holiday spirit, this would be a decent summer brew in my opinion.

On tap at the Harpoon Bar - Logan Airport - Boston, MA. Aroma is a cold salted wet slightly spicy cookie. Pours a rather glazed, uneven tawny amber, with minimal head. Flavor is soft, subtle and unassuming. There’s really just a hint of ginger, a hint of wheat, a good bit of house character and a final flourish of booze. This comes across as incredibly mild. One of the lighter spiced beers. It really feels like a "starter" or "crossover" beer, nothing a true craft beer geek would get excited about, which is odd, considering that this is a 100 Barrel series.

Pours a transparent effervescent golden with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of sweet ginger and light caramel with a touch of bananas. Starts with decent fullness and light caramel and candied ginger sweetness with a touch of doughy yeast before a drier, smooth finish. A pretty decent brew. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottle [22oz] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size diminishing off-white head. Aroma of ginger (yay, I love ginger!) and soap (boo!) -- so what could’ve been great is only O.K. Flavour of ginger and some grain -- I like it. Average bodied. Pretty good overall.

My brother was kind enough to give me a bottle of Harpoon Ginger Wheat. Based on past ginger beers I’ve had this bottle went to the cellar. Finally got around to drinking it and I must say it was a well made beer. Sweet aroma, lemon zest, ginger slight twang, golden body and brief pillow case head. Not sure how old the bomber of Ginger Wheat was I consumed however it settled into a drinkable spiced wheat beer. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2012
pale yellow with a white head. nose is ginger, light banana and wheat. very light on the palate, it’s like eating a bunch of ginger, with a light wheaty finish.
