Draft at Brew pub. Pours orangish amber color. Small quickly diminishing head. Taste is very malty ginger and quite a bit sweet. I was hoping for some more hops in the finish, but just didn’t get it. It’s tough to drink more than 1 of these because of the overall sweetness and spices.

Thanks to Axilla for sharing this growler at least years xmas get-together at Tomdecapolis’. Porus moslty clear medium amber and a thin lasting head. Aroma is herbal hops, basil, garden spices, lemon thyme and even some weed in there.. Dry light flavor- more spice, earth and dirt- some green hops and a bit vegetal. Mild easy finish but a bit thin.

Thanks to axilla for this... Appears a transparent, orange toned amber with a small white head that quickly fades away. Little spots of lacing cling to the glass. Smell is of basil, peppercorn, ginger, coriander, & nutmeg...very weird. Taste is of a spicey, Belgian, dry pasta, yeasty, wacky creation that reminds me a bit of my tomato sauce without the acidic, pureed tomatoes. Mouthfeel is bitterly spiced, kind of weird but not overly bad...just very strange.

Sampled from Growler courtesy of Axilla. Poured a deep orange color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of strong ginger. I found the ginger aroma to drown out all other aromas. Tastes of ginger, citrus, bready, and caramel. Light lacing left on the glass.

Thanks to Axilla for sharing this growler. Pours a translucent golden amber/copper with an average off white creamy head. Aroma was lots of ginger, corriander and a mix of other spices along with some bready pils malts. Flavor was bready, ginger, pils malt and a very light hop presence.

Poured a clear, amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of ginger, bready malts, with some basil and coriander as well. Taste of ginger, with light caramel malts, coriander, and a bit of citrus.

This was a pretty average holiday ale. It wasn’t too flavorful, but you sense a hint of ginger and fruit. Poured a relatively clear red with a slight white head. Overall, it was OK, nothing to shake a stick at. Definitely not a "strong Belgium" as the description reads.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2006 Pour was a hazy red/orange body with a fliffy white head. I got a little fruit an spice in both the nose and flavor but everything seemed to be covered up with a bit too much ginger. The beer was very smooth.

Nejhleader (1460) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 Has an aroma of cranberries. Taste is of cranberries, and has a spice also to it, with a bit of a dry aftertaste. Maybe if I liked cranberries more I’d like this more, but it was still pretty good. It was also was extremly smooth, the alcohol hidden very well. 2007: not as good as previous years
