I like how the heat comes on with this beer. It isn't too spicy even for me, and I'm a wimp. I do wish it had more lime to balance it though. (141 characters)

Enjoyed on-tap at Oblivion in Orlando. This beer has an interesting combination of ingredients with Thai chills, ginger, and lime. The taste is unquestionably unique and intriguing. I dig it for what it is. There is a lot of heat but the subtle lime and citrus help to balance it out a little. (293 characters)

Tried this on tap at their homebrew outlet store on Linda Vista in San Diego on Tue 2/28. Please note that this was the third in a series of samples - it was preceded by the Sculpin IPA and Navigator Doppelbock, so I was a bit in hop overload at that point. In other words, I sort of did my testing bass-ackwards, so any subtle hints on the nose and tongue might not have been readily apparent. However, I have to say that even for chile beers, this was something else. The other beers have been your typical Corona-esque pale lagers, but the witbier makes a far better palate. The chile and lime was readily apparent and opened up the nostrils for sure, with the ginger as part of a nice crisp aftertaste. Comparing this to any other chile beer I have ever had would be like comparing a nice piece of sharp white cheddar to a chunk of Velveeta. Only caveat I can suggest is don't drink this if you have any cuts or abrasions on your mouth or gums, as I imagine it would sting a bit... (985 characters)

The sort of beer that purists must hate, I'm sure, but the fact of the matter is that it's tasty as heck. I've had a lot of Ballast Point beers with interesting ingredients, particularly chili peppers, and I gotta say that every darn time they're on point. Is it the kind of beer you'd want a sixer of? Probably not. But was it really darn tasty? Sure was. Choose accordingly. (376 characters)

tastes and smells like a thai restaurant with no AC when it's 100 degrees out with mounds of ginger dumped on the floor. (120 characters)
