Pours a clean straw color with a small head, decent lasting thin cap on top though with no pacing on the glass.

Smell is mostly sweet malt with a mild floral hop presence, not picking up much ginger on the nose.

Taste starts out with the malt backing and a light aspect of ginger, the ginger adds a clean fresh crispness to it, hops have a decent presence in the aftertaste, reminds me more of a Pils than a wheat ale though.

Very well balanced. The ginger flavour is clear, but it doesn't overpower the hops, and it allows the very light citrusy notes of the wheat beer to shine. I had a bottle as they were out at the tasting bar when we stopped by. It's worth a try, even if you aren't typically into wheat beers, as it's a well executed variant.

my first beer from foley brothers is a good one, much delayed after I dropper and broke a bottle in the street last summer, good to finally get another going safely. a blonde brew heavy on both the wheat malt and the ginger aroma, raw and spicy, almost too intense with the ginger. not much head on this thing, which is in this case an indication of how under carbonated the beer is, my only real issue with an otherwise wonderful summer refresher. lots and lots of ginger in the nose, a little more mild with it in the taste, flush with wheat malt, I like how robust it is, not a light beer by any stretch. hearty and earthy in the base, with the spice of fresh shaved ginger root in the finish, almost hot in the throat going down but stopping just short of that. if this had some more bubbles it would be stunning, but it feels a little too flat to serve he purpose in hot weather, but I do like the fuller body for the style. it looks like foley brothers makes some really cool beer, I hope to track a few more down while I am back east this week.
