2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow-amber gold; very thick & stable off-white head. Very spicey nose, ginger and bog myrtle, pepper and Paradise seed. Typical gingerbread taste, sweet, extremely spicey (all the above + a dash of allspice). Light to medium bodied. Very caramel-sweet aftertaste, but the ginger keeps ruling. Somehow, this is not quite beer anymore to my taste. I’m not overly fond of this liquid gingercake, and every sip made it more repulsive; couldn’t finish the bottle.

An orange beer with a small disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet perfumated with notes of citrus, malt, and cellery. The flavor is sweet malty and perfumated with notes of cellery and a dry end.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dutch Ratebeer Meeting. Clear dark coloured, dying head. Ginger is obviously present in aroma and flavour. A bit dry medicinal finish. Not even that bad, but it seems like i’m alone on this...

Ginger aroma and flavor. Some chewing gum in the aftertaste. I’m sorry, but I hate ginger, so it’s hard for me to rate this beer objectively.
