3fourths (7976) - 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 (2645) - 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 (4692) - 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 (815) - 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.

jbak (111) - Torrington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Pours a nice amber somewhat cloudy hue, with a small white head with almost no lacing. It has a sweet aroma with a touch of ginger. Nice medium body with a definite adjunct type flavor, not awful though. Carbonation is quite light. The aftertaste is it's strongest point, nice malty finish that makes you want/need another taste. Another unique beer from DFH, though I didn't expect anything less at this point.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Clear light amber/copper, no head, mild carbonation. Subtle nose of ginger, belgium yeast, floral notes and candied sugar. Medium bodied, bit creamy, complex flavors of ginger, sweet pale malt, cooked sugar (candyish), rice is evident, herbal notes with a smidge of belgium yeast and alcohol. Pretty good, could be a little smoother but a tasty brew regardless.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Deep caramel color with a small head. Aroma is mainly ginger. Sweet and malty with ginger flavors coming through strongly, slight bitterness balancing it out. An unusual brew (even by dfh standards) but not bad at all.

This is a good spice/herb brew. Drinkablebut some what light. Malty, ginger, and earthy flavors. Finishes smooth and clean.

egajdzis (5295) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2006 Poured an amber gold color with no head, although it did leave some lacing. Aroma of malty and top quality corn and rice. This tasted similar to a wheat beer, also including some sweet (I guess from the brown sugar) malt and yeast, and finishing slightly bitter. A rather plain although refreshing brew from DFH, but very interesting considering there is an ingredient from each continent.

obxdude10 (2031) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2003
Another fantastic brew from DFH, hazy golden color with huge off-white bubbly head, frity aromas, big malt profile, hints of fruits in the flavors as well, slight malt aftertaste
