blankboy (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
Draught at ’Mondial de la Biere 2009’, Montréal, QC. One of the festival highlights for me, I went back repeatedly for it. Drank pitchers of it at the brewery as well. Before letting me order it they made me sample it first. "Fuck yeah!", that’s what I said when I first smelt it. Lots and lots of ginger, spicy and floral too -- I love it. Flavour: Wow, so ginger-ey! Medium bodied, well carbonated. Incredible stuff and criminally underrated. C’mon!

garthicus (2595) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 12, 2009
Sampled time and time again at Mondial festival of beer and pretty much this was the beer of the festival for me. I took a 6 pack home. Appearance: Murky, cloudy orange with a tiny white head. Aroma: Just pure fresh ginger, some malt and pineapple, spices too. Flavour: Wonderful burning ginger, one can just imagine drinking it with sushi. It reminds me of a drink in Kenya called Stoney Tangawizi - a seriously intense ginger experience. It tingles the throat and is just immensely refreshing. That combined with the incredible friendliness of the Les Brasseurs De Montréal staff makes it a serious craft brew contender, Just superb.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Bottle from Dépanneur Rahman. Pours a very hazy apricot gold with a medium white head that falls steadily, but does remain present. Enormous ginger note on the nose. Almost overwhelming. Smells like a fresh hand of ginger. Remarkable actually. Tastes, obviously, like more ginger. Sort of like a real ginger ale. Not bad actually. Medium bodied, and a touch medicinal, but does have a soft bit of wheat behind it. Spicy on the gums. Finishes lightly with again, a touch of ginger, and some nice yeasty wit notes. I’m actually surprised at some of the low ratings. It’s certainly not a typical wit, opting for ginger over coriander and orange zest, but the name and concept are carried out winningly, and it is rather impressive. I’m wondering if some of the reviews just didn’t get what the brewer was going for here. Took me a few minutes but when it clicked, it was great.

Wow, big pungent fresh ’hot jamaican’ ginger aroma and taste. powerful pique of heat balanced against spicy and fruity wheat. Perfumey and layered aroma.

Gorbalev (2895) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2009
Mondiale 09, at the fest, and the brewpub as well. Hazy dark yellow, small white head. Intense ginger aroma - there’s nothing else here and that is fine, it is lovely. Great ginger taste - bubbly carbonated body, very quenching, crisp and light yet tons of flavour. Not unbalanced to my taste, but I also would not want to drink more than a few pints of it either. Still, a really nice surprise, not even on my radar going in, but having fresh on tap (and having the friendliest folks of the fest) certainly helped. Not as enamored as my Mondiale trip mates, but not as down on it as previous raters wither. A solid solid beer - would do well here in Ontario -I’m very serious.

mabel (5371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2009
[2233-20090605] Tap. Sweet strong ginger aroma that is powdery and fresh. Hazy, light yellow brown body with a quick foamy white head. Super ginger-soaked beer flavour. Medium body is tangy. Lovely, could pair well with sushi!

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Clear amber gold, bubbly, light medium head, dissipates quickly. Clean lovely ginger aroma, lime. Clean spicy ginger flavor. Effective warming effect. Very nice. I continue to be surprised by low scores from really nice Canadian beers.

Snoro (294) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2013
Forte odeur de gingembre. Beaucoup de mousse. Bonne effervescence. N’est pas acre. Goût assez fort de gingembre. Laisse un arrière-goût d’épice assez fort dans la gorge après quelques gorgées. Prise à la température de la pièce.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2009
Draught. At Mondial 2009 - day 1. Hazy yellow pour, average lasting white head. Aroma - pungent ginger, very strong, floral bitterness perhaps, but lovely ginger character. The taste is also floral, all I can say is pungent - grabs your tongue, yells "ginger, mofo!!" - maybe some jasmine in there too. Light and lively body, long spicy/floral/ginger linger - a real bite, a real treat - we all kept going back for more, we even brought six-packs to take home to Toronto on the train.
