Draft at the source. Cloudy golden color. Ginger forward aroma. The lime and maybe the honey balance the ginger nicely.

Taster at Cascade barrel tasting room. Aroma of slightly sour ginger. Ginger, yet more lime really come out in the flavor. Palate and feel are excellent. Put this in a bottle! Excellent beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub in Portland, OR. Pours a lightly clouded golden colored body with a finger-width, frothy and creamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is big ginger and fresh lime zest. Some sweet honey behind the lime and ginger with a nice tartness. Flavor is similar. Tart limes and ginger up front with a sweet honey backing. Finishes clean and dry with a light tartness and smooth honey note. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a tasty and interesting sour. Tons of lime zest and ginger with a nice honey sweetness and solid dry tartness. Good one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Cascade, Portland - 07/11/12 @ 7.5% ABV.
Lightly hazed blonde with a thin white head that clears to the edges.
Nose is sour fruits, light vinegar, lime forward, background ginger.
Taste is a little sweeter than the nose suggests, lime to the fore once again, light ginger in the background, a little sweetness but not picking up honey specifically.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a slightly sticky and sweet sour finish.

On tap at Cascade.
A: Pale straw color with very thin lacing.
N: Honey, predominant lime, and ginger ale. Not complex, but as advertised. Lactic sourness.
T: Lemon and lime like 7up. Ginger is melded well. A little spiciness from the rye. Green apple candy. This is very much like a wine cooler.
M: Somewhat spritzy and sticky.
O: Is what it says. Very refreshing, like alcoholic soda. ne of the best things I’ve had from Cascade.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at NCBC. Pours a hazy burnished medium amber with very little loose white head. Big sweet nose; the honey ginger and lime all show up and make it very candy like--it’s like an awesome sour rock candy. Maybe a little on the oversweet side for a beer. Fizzy medium body. Tangy tart sharply sweet presence on the mid palate, really explosively flavored. Tangy longish finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy gold with a fluffy white head. The nose definitely brings the lime part of the mix. Vinuous palate. This enters with tart lime flavors, but yields to a sweeter candied ginger which lingers seemingly forever.
