Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Thai Chili Wahoo is a favorite in our tasting rooms for its complex balance of ingredients. Citrus and spice have long been a part of our trademark Wahoo White. In this edition, we added a dose of Thai Chilis, even more heat from ginger, and a counterpunch of lime. The flavors in this beer need to be experienced first-hand, so grab one and try it for yourself.

A: Orange-tinted amber with not any head at all.
S: Definitely some capsicum going on here, with some lime. Not much beeriness.
T: Well, I like that taste, a nice mix of fruity lime citrus, very prominent chile taste, lots of ginger. Malt is very light, and the beer is light and drinkable as well, a nice change from many brewers that make their chile beers big and substantial.
M: Very spritzy, well-carbonated, light on the tongue.
O: Interesting and different beer. Not something I'd get very often, and I can't imagine it being a very good accompaniment to Thai food, but I enjoyed it.

A bomber with date code 16094 12:51 poured in a 13oz. snifter/tulip for the review.

Look- Pours a slightly cloudy yellow urine color with a trace amount of white foam.

Smell- Chili pepper forward with a hint of ginger and lime zest.

Taste- In your face chili peppers, ginger, a slight hint of lime and a weird used ashtray flavor in the finish.

Feel- Hot, hot and more hot.

Overall- I'm a lover of hot spicy foods, but this is ridiculous. In my opinion, peppers in beer work best when it's an accent and not the main ingredient. The flavors listed are all there, but the pepper heat just tramples everything making this a big hot mess for me. Lesson learned!
