Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits - Thai Chili Wahoo
ABV : 4.5% Style : Spiced/ Herbed Beer
The Apperance Is of this beer pours a darken orange with an almost instant dissipating head, leaving a polished surface. Looks like an orange soda.
The aroma of this beer is of fresh chili peppers, sautéed green peppers, with a note of spiced ginger sweetening this beer. Some hint of calimodean, and white grape. The chili is still always forward with a constant presence thoughout. The head goes to about an 1 and a half to two the quickaly disappears then the glass looks much like Champagne.
The flavor is spicy from the Thai chili with a potato starch flavor next to it. The chili is over powering at from the start. lime and the starch keep this somewhat of a lil mellowed but ones Ouse to the heat there is a subtle dajou pear, and plantatin note that does develop. Ginger spice adds some nice warmth to this torts the finish, with some sweet vanillin at the tip but the chili is always present.
There is a good amount of carbonation, with this light body.
