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.

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!

Pours a deep golden yellow with a quickly fading head.
Aroma is a nice mixture of candied ginger and wheat.

Taste is a blend of ginger(with a hint of sweetness) and wheat backed by subtle spices and light fruit flavors. The hops provide a very palate cleansing crispness without being bitter. Good carbonation and medium body.

Overall an enjoyable, drinkable local Vermont beer.
