Great beer with a hint of ginger and sugary caramel flavors. Nice aroma of sweets and a great pour with nice effervescent head.

Deep golden with a small white head relatively clear. Aroma of malty caramel and ginger. Taste very close to aroma. Maybe with a bit more caramel, and some hints of spice.

I give Dogfish Head credit for doing something different but this one doesn't do it for me. Too much ginger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle, a hazy amber orange door with a creamy white head that left a good amount of lacing. Aroma is immediately ginger and spicy, maybe clove, some yeast. Great smell. The taste is a sweet malty taste. But there is a bit that comes from the ginger. The body is medium, not too thick, but good carbonation. I think there is a bitter finish from the ginger. Overall a great drink. unique. classic Dogfish.

dark orange with two fingers of creamy white head. Nose is all ginger, little but if yeast. Medium mouthfeel, not quite as sweet as I’d expected. A certain harshness on the finish.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lace. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet lightly bready malts, with some ginger, some Belgian yeast and spices, and some grains. T - Starts off with some sweet bready malts with some ginger and a touch of citrus. Through the middle, some Belgian yeast and spices come through alongside some grains. The finish is a mix of bready caramel malts, grains, Belgian yeast, and some ginger and other spices. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and lightly spicy and dry finish. D - Very drinkable. The ginger is a nice addition on top of the BSPA base. And the grains give the beer a really nice smoothness.

MikeyMalts (64) - Davis, California, USA - MAY 8, 2012
(#55) 750ml aged and bought in Dec. 2010. Tulip glass. Appearance: Light golden straw color, hazy. Good frothy white head retention and lacing. Aroma: Sweet but some spice to it. Clove, banana, melon, grape, honey, lemon, pepper. Taste: A nice spice to it, ginger comes through. There is a orange taste, but combines with the ginger to make it slightly bitter. Some honey sweetness. Palate: Light bodied. Smooth. Some carbonation but not much. Overall: Very easy to drink, no apparent alcohol taste. Great mellow beer, happy that I bought two. However, I was expecting more levels of flavor from all the ingredients used.

superspak (2411) - Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2012
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 2011. Pours cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap. Some bits of lacing on the glass. Aromas of grape, pear, ginger, apricot, clove, pepper, biscuit, honey, citrus peel, and herbal spiciness. Some nice and interesting aromas; with good balance and complexity. Taste of grape, ginger, apple, pear, clove, apricot, pepper, banana, biscuit, honey, and herbal spices. Lingering notes of apricot, pear, pepper, clove, biscuit, ginger, and herbal spices on the finish for a good bit. Great balance of flavors with good complexity; and no cloying sweetness at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. No alcohol presence noted other than a faint warming after the finish. Overall this is a really nice Belgian style ale. Very unique flavor profile with nice complexity; and very smooth to sip on. Really enjoyed this one.

A clear medium gold with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma has lots of Belgian yeast along with some ginger and grapefruit notes. The flavor is light, with the yeast and ginger up front, a smooth body, and yeasty, slightly sweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
