Really nice ginger and cracker nose, light herbal hops. Nice spicy ginger, dry cracker malts, herbal/grassy hops, light lemon. Finish is all ginger, lots of lingering spice. Lovely

Tap @ Captain Lawrence... Poured hazy amber with an eggy, off-white head. Dominant ginger root, very fresh with ginger spice. Belgian yeast flavors and cloves to balance. Went down very easy with a nice malty finish.

Sample at brewery. Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells like gingerbread. Tastes like gingerbread. Very quaffable. Finishes clean with little bitterness. Should pair nicely with a variety of foods. Best thing I’ve had here so far.

Tap at Ginger Man. aroma of caramel malt, ginger, pepper, maybe some other herbal spiciness. Flavor mingles the ginger with some sweet wild berries, toffee and cracker, and just a touch of citrus. Very good, better and better as it goes along.

Dredd (700) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2008
House tap beer at Gingerman NYC, very nice. Appearence is a rich copperwith white head, sweet toffee nose with nice hoppiness. Flavour is great, slight sweet malt, good bitterness and spot on carbonation. Well executed in every aspect, could sit on this beer forever and a day.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2009
Draught sample at the Greenwich, CT location. They insisted there was nothing Belgian about this, but they were wrong. Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of ginger, dry malt, some peppery splashes. Tastes sweet and malty with some floral notes and a nice ginger bite on the finish.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2009
Draft at Ginger Man NYC. Poured a clear medium orange color with a thin off white head. Pleasant aroma of clove and subdued baking spices. Medium bodied with carbonation on the lower end of the spectrum. The flavors followed the aromas; clove, baking spices, and toffee. Very nice and easy to drink.

Dark orange with white head. Aroma of Ginger and bread. Buttery body body goes well with the gingerbread flavor.

on tap @ the Ginger Man NYC, amber in color, aroma is some ginger and hops, i didnt think it was a belgian at all when I had it, sort of a hoppy brown ale more than a belgian, very easy to drink, the abv is good for a session beer but the sweetness from the ginger would get to me if i had more than one.
