3.11/5 rDev -12.4%
Pale gold, mostly transparent except for a bit of chill haze. No head to speak of whatsoever... I even poured hard to get something, but was unsuccessful. Practically no carbonation.. Did I get a bad bottle?
Light and crisp. A little on the sweet side. Ginger and a damp wheat character up front followed by orange peel. Faint coriander and yeast presence. No detectable hops.
Light. Ginger is dominant and dances on your tongue. Simple malts provide a light nut character. Light spicing. Muted and rather boring.
The ginger provides an interesting tingle, but isn't enough to redeem this. Ultra light body. Low levels of carbonation. Finish is semi-dry.
Disappointing. I'll admit that I had high hopes after seeing the scores here.. unfortunately, this did nothing for me. It's light and very easy to drink, but lacks enough substance to recommend.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell has some spices, a bit of citrus. Taste is wheat, spice, some citrus, a bit of ginger, refreshing . Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall would make a fine session beer.

12oz bottle to Sam Adams Perfect Pint.
A: Semi-hazy straw pour with a head that quickly faded.
S: Citrus and faint ginger, fainter wheat, generic pale maltiness, yeast esters, light spice component is buried and not too prominent.
T: Fruity notes with a wheaty but crackery malt base, hints of spice and grains of paradise. Pleasant, and the fruity citrus and ginger notes work well.
MF: Thinner body drinks well; refreshing. My pour was kinda lame so there was still a lot of carbonation in the body of this one.
O: Not a bad drinker, a refreshing Wit to close out the summer with. The ginger addition is tame but welcome.

Small head and then it dies to ring lace. Lightly cloudy. White-ish gold color. No lace.
Smells subtly of Grains of Paradise or All Spice. Otherwise, it's a simple pale malt base.
Not very wheaty (a good thing to me). Spicy but in a light, refreshing way. A bit of coriander and the above mentioned items predominate. I only noticed the ginger after I read the label. It is there but not easily identified. Spritzy.
