12 oz can, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, opaque, golden color with a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much in the way of aroma. Some faint notes of wheat, ginger, honey and maybe some black pepper and coriander.

Taste: Interesting flavors of wheat, honey, ginger, black pepper, and coriander, however, the predominate flavor is of floral, semi-sweet honey. There is also some grassy notes of clover too, maybe the honey used is clover honey? Quite a nice tasting beer, actually.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and quite effervescent and crisp, as there is a lot of carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 4.3%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: While this beer doesn’t have much of an aroma, it has some really good, bright, easy to drink and delicious flavors of honey, ginger, black pepper and coriander. I quite like it.

Ginger comes across a bit strong, and the honey is mostly lost, but this brew is spot on for its goal: being a refreshing, sessionable Summer beer. Really nails it!

Looks like a wheat kind of. Way too much carbonation and hard to pour. Aroma is very light and I really don't pick up any of the honey or ginger in this one. Taste is full of heavy carbonation, watery and lacking the sweetness of the honey or the taste of the ginger, did they forget to add these items?. Mouthfeel cuts hard with the bubbles and overall, this beer does not live up to what I believe they wanted it to be. No bottling date but I do not think it would have made a difference anyway !!!

Another beer from the captain of the canship, woodychandler.Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is heavy on the wheat. Taste is sharp wheat, lemons, some very slight hints of ginger. Feels medium/light in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Off flavors present, aroma lacking, some ingredient and process review could help this out quite a bit.

From the can, it pours a hazy yellowy amber with a vibrant head - as one would expect from a wheat beer. Taste is lightly wheat beer-ish and the body is light. Easy to drink summer beer!

Poured a pale, cloudy golden body with one finger head and little lace. The aroma has a little wheat twang but I pick up more honey and ginger than anything. Smooth, light bodied, yeast keeps it riding smooth and gives off a little twang. Honey adds a little sweetness and a balanced beer with hints of citric lemony spice, although the ginger can dominate at times on the finish.
