2009 vintage, 750 ml bottle into a DFH glass. Pours a clear amber with a finger of white foam with large suds. Nose is a whole lot of spicy and sweet ginger. Some caramel malt but this smells like liquid candied ginger. Taste is light with tons of sweet ginger. The spice is very minimal. Aftertaste is a bit cardboardy and bready. Drinkability is very high but this is pretty boring. Medium mouth feel. I remember liking it fresh and with four years on the odometer it’s certainly aged well enough. Like drinking a mild ginger ale.

750ml served in a St Bernardus chalice Bottled in 2010 A - Clear burnt golden body with a finger of creamy head that banks a nice collar. Speckled lacing. S - Old fruit bread, peaches, apricots, applesauce, raisins, syrupy sweet malt, candied ginger, mint tea, spicy, oxidized bready character. T - Odd flavors going on here, peppermint, various unknown spices, like the entire spice rack all mixed in. Belgian yeast, hefty candied malt with some toasted evergreen/herbal hops. The malt is very sweet with tangy over ripened fruit (peaches, pears, apricots) wrapped around a moderate vitamin/mineral character. Oxidized ginger bread comes to mind. M - Dense and full bodied, low creamy carbonation, viscous feel. I like the experimentation of this beer but there is alot going on. It’s fun to drink but it’s A.D.D. in nature and doesn’t have much focus. There’s no telling what all Sam put i this beer. And it’s quite sweet. A fun beer to talk about and review.

P: A murky speckled dark orange to light orange body topped with a tan layer of creamy froth. Creamy top dwindles to a layer similar to melted vanilla ice cream. Wet slippery lacing climbing the sides. S: Crystalized ginger, herbal hops, creamed corn, orange oil, cinnamon, clove, allspice, Chinese 5 spice, hidden toasted toffee, and Belgian yeast. Aroma is similar to a aromatherapy room with ginger added to the mix. T/M: Mentholated halls, numerous spices and crystalized ginger upfront followed by pungent green tea tannins that encompass my entire mouth. Lemon grass and honey linger on the dry finish. Mouthfeel is kinda light-medium but nice and creamy with a touch of prickly carbonation at the start. O: An explosion of herbs, spices and sweetness. I really think this is more of a herb/spice beer than a BSPA. The execution if this was great and the flavors really worked well with each other. I’m excited to see it so cheap at the store and I will for sure get more. Cheers!

Bottled 2009, Reviewed 07FEB12 Pours hazy apricot with little foam formation. Smells like ginger and ketchup. the flavor doesn’t follow through with as much intensity. The ginger is toned down and the malts are sweet and have a slight toffee and metallic flavor. thin and lower carb. Meh, not likely to have this beer again unless it is randalled through sumatran tangerines candied with organic brazilian sugarcane or something else fancy. 3/3/2/2/2.5 Bottled 2009, Reviewed 06/22/10 Poured from bottle to New Belgium tulip. A: Bottle looked like a lowfill. To my surprise, large ’pop’ on opening. Apricot color with high clarity. Consistent bubbles from bottom to top. 1/8" top head broken sporadically with color of ground orange rind. 3.5 S: No real herbal qualities to this ale, as expected. Pretty much smells grainy with hoppy resins. Reminds me of a pilsner. 2 T: Maltier than expected, the caramel malt shines. Slightly sour. Ginger emerges towards the swallow at the rear of palate. Finishes with exhalation of ginger. 3.5 M: Light, refreshing. Low carbonation toward end of beer. 3.5 D: Fun beer, but for the price point I think you can get much better beers with more playful flavor profiles. This being said, I have another bottle which I plan to age for an additional year. 3.5 Serving type: bottle 02-08-2012

bottle. Golden with two finger head. The idea behind this is far more interesting than the execution. It’s overly sweet and the ginger is just strange.

Bottle dated 10-30-2006. Darn! Another gusher! I’ve got to prepare for these when opening a vintage bottle. Most of it recovered, pouring into a small snifter. Foam is so thick in the neck it’s hard to get a smooth pour. Pours a golden beer with Lots of floaties, thick foam head. Still, it arrives with few of the character of an aged beer. Just a lightly sweet malt taste. Ginger comes in more as ginger ale. Now there is some phenol from aging, but that’s to be expected. A pretty nice specialty beer, just not a world-beater. Glad to have had it, though.

It poured a yellow color with a large off-white head. The aroma was much like ginger beer with a touch of Belgian yeast spice. The taste was very spicy with the taste and texture of a gingerbread cookie. There was some sweet vanilla and green tea in the background. Nice!

750ml bottle thanks to jbeatty, appreciate it! Amber-gold color, decent head, looks good. Smell is odd, ginger? The taste is like a pale ale but there is definitely an odd ingredient here and I can’t help but think of ginger again but maybe its the sugar. I actually liked this more than I thought I would and drank my glass down with no problem. The price tag however would be a problem that would keep me from ever revisiting this beer but I think that is standard for DFH these days. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-24-2011 05:59:22
