I want to hear more about the ice from Antarctica that is allegedly in this. Fairly thin body, a lot of grainy rice character. Gingery but not overpowering. Temperature increase exposed the one-dimensional flavor. Very sweet when above 65 degrees or so.

TAR (2497) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Faded pumpkin with powdery yeast speckles. Quick, broken, dusty-white bubbles. Fruity, gingery aroma with a very simplistic, lightly toasted, papery pale malt lining. Scattered star anise, clover honey, flowers, apple must, and cane sugar undertones. Gentle, brushing carbonation. Slick and light. Starts with lovely subdued spice and a fabulously fluffy glazed sensation nestled into a very solid, smooth, biscuity malt anchor. Extremely soft and mineral-like. Finishes with everlasting biscuity malts alongside ginger, flower, spruce notes, grainy, tingly sugar, and a cunning Belgian flare. Lingering white grape and subtle toastiness deflects the juicy hop tease. The ginger is very well-placed in all areas and plays exquisitely with the base of the brew. Extremely quaffable, due to its light body and superb balance. Very nice.

Poured a slightly hazy amber color, some white head, diminishing. Aroma was slightly spicy with some herbal and earthy elements. Flavor had the ginger as well as some woody notes. Definitely interesting, but I'm not sure about this one.

a transparent copper color with a full sheet of bubbles..aroma was malty sweet going in the vegital direction..maybe some squash or yams or something..who knows...flavors of grapes, ginger, cloves, and fruitcake..spritzy mouthfeel like spicy champagne...alcohol heat..a little tartness to round things out with some bitterness to back it up in the very end..almost to the point of bitter chocolate. then a lingering gingerness. quite drinkable.

Brilliant, clear amber with a thin, white head. A very interesting aroma of sweet ginger, strong, toasty malt, a touch of sugary sweetness. Medium to thin in the body. Spicy and warming flavors with plenty of ginger, fresh herbs, sweet apples and nutty, toasty malt. A touch of hops in the finish. Very interesting and oddly enjoyable. A nice holiday beer whose spice level is calm enough to allow one to enjoy it for 75cl.

Smoothness. Lots of subtle flavors. I drank it colder than recommended, but as it warmed I didn't noticed much of a difference.

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!

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.

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.

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?).
