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...

Tap at BBC in Plymouth, MA.
Light fizzy head, golden yellow hazy lemon color.
Nose is like pure Thai, very nutty, peanut oil, light pepper, ginger, wheat, floral spices I want to think basil but I think that's more my mind's association, lemon zest and a light citrusy aroma.
Taste airy and floral, plenty of wheat to start, nice candy ginger, light floral spices, little nutty. Hint of pepper flavor and heat, and light lemon zest. Light golden malt with more wheat flavors. Finish is drier but not very, light sticky malt, some warming pepper heat, more spices and lemon, ginger lingering.
Mouth is med bodied, decent carb, some pepper heat.
Overall interesting but not amazing, very unique Thai flavors, floral but not great.
