750 ml. Deep amber rust with a bleached white head. A spider web of aromas grab my nose: candied ginger, and other asian smells (edomame, rice and wasabi), biting alcoholic brown sugar, grass and heather. Very light carbonation and thin palate, almost watery consistency, though coats the mouth just a touch. Flavours abound with fleshy apricots, oranges, sharp red apples and green grapes on the fruit side combined with bitter honey, vanilla, wheat and other grains. A wild and fascinating beer, that drifts the imagination into all sorts of strange places. Well done DFH!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Lightly cloudy light golden color with a smaller white head. Aroma of fresh yeast, ginger, mace, and apples. Light cider with ginger flavors. Light on the palate. Quite lager like and similar to Viking Juleol. Refreshing in a strange way.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2003
Sweet, too sweet, cut by the ginger a little. You must like ginger a lot to like this beer. What I like is the fresh, thinness of the body, which must be the judicious use of rice. It imparts a sharpness to the flavor. Yum. Daring. Way to go, DFH.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2003
Small fizzy initial head. Nose is a litte herby, a bit like Tanqueray 1 gin. Initial taste is pretty sweet with some ginger in it. Finishes a little bitter and yeasty. Sweetness was a bit overpowering in the beer. Bottom of the 75cL bottle poured out some particles, decently large in size. I'm curious as to what it was.... seemed like clumps of a powdery substance (ginger-related?).

DavidP (1746) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2003
Dark amber body, medium-lived fizzy white head. Gently spiced floral aroma. Sweet ginery flavor, slightly bitter aftertaste. Low marks for being too sweet, but the ginger was kind of cool.

Frank (2381) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2003
Clear, golden amber with a tiny-bubbled ring of head. Aroma is warm with ginger. In fact, despite all the ingredients from around, the ginger really takes center stage here. I don't mind it in the least. It adds a nice bite to the mouthfeel and compliments the sweetness nicely.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Spiced apple and ginger aroma. Bright and alive up front, then more even and numbing in the middle with a spicy peach flavor. Finish is sweet and wet with some wheat flavors. Thanks to Joe for sharing.

OldGrowth (2478) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Bottle: Ginger,spice cake nose. Orange copper color, tad hazy. Small head disappeared quickly. Ginger, carmel, honey, toasty malt. Smooth and sticky sweet. This hits the mark on some personel favorite flavors. Liquid ginger bread. I love the willingness to experiment from DFH.

jgb9348 (4488) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Crystal clear amber colour with ruby highlights and a thin white head that doesn't last too long. A very nice looking beer, as all 75 cL bottled DFH's seem to be! Aroma of plentiful malt, caramel, light hops, some fruityness (from peaches and raisins) and a tiny bit of ginger. Full-bodied; Sweet taste that doesn't hold much flavour in the mouth. Crystalised ginger is noted in the taste as well as some odd 'macrobrewery lager' tastes. Aftertaste is fairly mild and only a bit of sweetness and bitterness (from the malt) is noticed. Overall, not an impressive beer from an otherwise great brewer. Simply not enough flavour and depth to make this one a great beer. The idea is great, and I support DFH's constant strive for innovation, but this one didn't hit the mark. I bought this 75 cL bottle at Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York and sampled it on 06-December-2003.

fraternie (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Coppery, amber body. Malty, spicy aroma. Caramel, cinnamon, ginger and honey notes make up the malt. Fairly thin bodied, lightly hopped. Spicy but thin finish.
