Same recipe as the regular De Graal Gember, but with a different yeast strain, as well as fresh, instead of dried ginger.

I was extremely surprised by this wonderful little beer. The taste of gember is somewhat sweet, warm with a nice strong bodely texture.

Aroma is dominated by a lemony citrus with a touch of ginger behind it. Flavour has a peppery spice edge with rich malt and a gentle hint of ginger. One of very few ginger flavoured beers I have enjoyed

33cl bottle from Hopduvel, BB 03/2013. Dorée avec qcq sédiments sur la fin, col blanc moyen. Arôme est légèrement épicé avec un gingembre prononcé sans pour cela dominer. Palais est léger et frais, l’ajout de gingembre est judicieux surtout vu le nombres de bières qui en font mauvaise usage. Le tout présente une belle effervescence avec un fini légèrement houblonné/amer. Note de grains et malt dans un style belge. L’avantage est que ici le gingembre sauve un peu cette bière qui présente une base banale.

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Tasted at 3de Gents Bierfestival. Hazy golden yellow, laces, small head. Lightly bitter, definitely herbal taste, complex. I was a little disappointed - I was impressed with the originality though. Worth a try.

No head left, hazy yellow-orange beer with some UFO’s. Ginger & coriander to the point of nausea. Ugh. This is an Oriental kitchen sauce, not a beer. Ginger. Ginger. And... ginger. Right, books closed. Quite slick, medium bodied. Oh, and ginger in the aftertaste. Sorry, Unpalatable, IMO.

5/VII/2012 - 75cl bottle from the brewery @ Klaas’ place - BB: n/a (2012-687) Thanks to Jan and John for sharing the bottle!

Cloudy yellow to orange beer, creamy white head, unstable, pretty adhesive. Aroma: fruity, peaches, oranges, yoghurt, bit grassy, floral, little soapy. MF: good carbon, medium to full body, creamy texture. Taste: bit sweet in the start, spicy, lemony, peaches, little sour, ginger, sweet ripe plums. Aftertaste: very fruity, yeast, spices, bit cheesy. Probably even better then the original. I love this.
