3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Cloudy light golden with a fizzy/fading white head. The aroma has a touch of wheat, with a soft herbal character, and tons of ginger. Fizzy body, bit bit too carbonated. Upfront there is a quick touch of wheat flavor/very subtle citrus (lemon-peel) note, which is followed by a prolonged ginger spiciness. What is detectable in the base beer is pretty nice, with a crisp wheat character, but the ginger flavor becomes overwhelming in my opinion. Other than that it’s a decent spice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with a big white head. This is odd, but it smells like chicken noodle soup... not quite sure what that is. Spicy flavor, heavy on the ginger. Not bad, I like it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2009 Bottle. Couldn’t really get behind this one. Hazy dull yellow pour with some white head. Very interesting tasting notes. Huge amounts of ginger and cardamum. The aroma was citric and spicy, and actually not too bad. Dusty, old. Tart citrus finish. Not sure what to think, but I’m pretty sure I won’t buy it again. Sick ass label though.
