First time drinking a Ginger Wheat. Perfect carbonation with excellent lacing
Loved the sweet malt balanced by just enough ginger to make this style interesting.
Low in alcohol and light in hops makes this brew an easy sipper in the summer time. They use local hops in this brew which puts them in my good books for the future!
A must try if you like ginger!

Poured from a bomber into a Sam perfect pint. The glass matters with this beer. The head is white and reminiscent of a good Champagne. Remained through the entire glass, with nice lacing. Smell is light, fruity and mixed with ginger. Taste is subtle but complex for a wheat beer. The ginger blends with the local hops and yeast very nicely. Mouthfeel is dominated by the effervescence, again reminding of Champagne. Overall this is a wonderful wheat beer, refreshing and easy to drink, but not at all simple. Elegant is the word that comes to mind.

I see that this brewery has yet to garner reviews and honestly, this is the first time I've heard of it. There are so many new breweries popping up in VT that I honestly cannot keep track of them all.

Pours a whitish-gold color with a one-finger head into my glass. Not overtly cloudy either.

Sweet with a good dose of wheat and ginger in the nose.

The ginger does add a bit of "oomph" to an otherwise standard pale wheat ale. It's a very mellow example of the style. Doesn't clobber you over the head either.

Very "bready" at the back of the throat. Easy drinking ale.

Definitely go out and try this if you want something that's light, crisp and not too far from sessionable.

Had this on tap at grand opening...took home Native Brown Ale as well in 22 oz bottles.

A- Straw, fizzy, 1 inch thin head in pint glass

S-Grassy, earthy, ginger, sweet

T-Started crisp, floral and full at the back of the throat

M-Slight licorice start, clean and full ginger finish, smooth carbonation...aftertaste wheat, banana bread...worried about licorice feel, but did not last, taste of wheat and ginger released nicely

O-Great niche beer saw guys and girls covering this one at the bar/opening...sessionable, great for all seasons.

Cool people, small family owned place in Vermont...not sure how it will age in the bottle, but I am stocking up as the stores sell out of this quickly.

A: The. Beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a faint amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Moderately strong aromas of ginger are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but also has some wheaty flavors.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems a little one-dimensional but is pretty nice if you like ginger.

Pours a fluffy and fizzy pasty white 1 finger head that fades fairly slowly reinforced by many bubbles and nice foamy lacing, slight hazy golden wheat orange color.

Nose has light wheat aromas, with a big ginger aroma, candied ginger and ginger ice cream, hint of citrus, banana, and very faint spices.

Taste kicks in ginger right away, candied and ginger ice cream again, slightly pickled as well. Then wheat, grassy wheat with hint if citrus and faint spices again, touch of banana and clove like, fluffy too. Ginger gives faint spicy, and some bitterness as well as grassy and faint spicy hops. Finish is drier but sticky, lingering bitter hops and bitter ginger, candied ginger and touch of butterscotch for some reason.

Mouth is med to lighter bodied, lots of fluffy carb.

Overall ok, pretty much delivers what it promises, ginger and wheat, nothing special but decent and fairly tasty, drinkable, and would be a great summer beer.
