On tap at Bedondaine, The color is orange with a beige head. You can taste and smell the spicies and also ginger. The ginger is the most noticeable. You can also detect in the ensemble of this beer the hops. It is a refreshing beer.

Draught tulip at the brewpub on 1/28/07
Faded copper body has a slight touch of haze, but is otherwise quite clear and bubbly. Ginger knocks the off-white head down quickly to partial cover, while some patches of lace are left behind.
Honey and warm bread dough in the nose give way to a strong pepper-like note that I would associate more with white or black pepper and less with ginger. It climaxes on the finish, however, and seems a bit more gingery, with notes of vanilla, candied peach and succulent honey alongside it. It’s definitely noticeable, but not overdone, and the spiciness dries out the sweet maltiness up front nicely. Not overly complex, as most ginger beers seem apt to be, but with a fresh, herbal/gingery robustness that, for those enjoying ginger (why drink this beer otherwise?) is very invigorating to the sinuses. Light bits of crusty grains perk up and then slowly fade in to a dusty/peppery, lightly yeasty/nutty finish. Medium to medium-high strength of aroma with no flaws or alcohol noted.
Honey and light peachy fruits tickle the senses as a definite citrus character emerges midway through. Crusty/grainy malts help give some definition to the texture and a fair amount of carbonation picks apart the sweetness. Ginger does not come on until near the finish, where a spicy flavor of ginger comes to dominate, but then slowly fades back in to the malts, leaving a peppery/spicy zestiness that tingles and tittilates. It trails off, eventually, in to a nuttiness dotted with light honey and some vanilla. Like the aroma, the beer is not very complex, but the ginger is done enough for someone who enjoys that ginger bite/sting on the end, but not enough to completely dominate the beer. Medium body, texture loosens quite considerably as it warms leaving some spots of wateriness (seems acceptable for the beer).

Quevillon (2728) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2007
Bu sur place en fut (12 oz). Couleur orange thé, petit collet avec un peu de dentelle. Arome de gingembre très présant, avec un peu d’épice. Goût de gingembre, d’épice et légèrement amère. C’est bien!

rederic (3228) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2007
Hazy amber honey hue, with a white head, leaving laces, sweet caramelized malt, with a nice gingerbread and spiciness notes, with a faint candied lemon peel fruitiness, in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet toasted malt, a mild spicy ginger character, hint of nutmeg, candied lemon peel and grapefruit fruitiness, with a subtle citrusy hops, leading towards a spicy gingerish and hops bittering finish.
