A blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet grassy malt with ginger. In mouth, a nice fruity malt with light grassy hops, faint ginger, nice.

Way better than I expected. Not nearly as over-the-top as most ginger beers--this is a beer first and foremost with a little ginger spice balancing out the flavor and the finish. First thing I’ve tried from this brewery--will try more if I can get my hands on it.

This was better than expected as the ginger was pretty subtle (thankfully - not a fan of ginger beers). Instead this was a lot like a nice weizenbock. Sweet wheat, candy and malts. Tasty beer. Thanks JM for this one.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
murky gold, thin white film head. Fresh ginger nose, the acids whacking with lemon, bits of celery and puke that blow off to reveal loads of cotton candy. Moderate oxidation at the front, lemon and ginger across mid with a soapy texture accenting the age before a toasty, fizzy end.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 Sample at the brewery, 2/7/14
Golden raisin colored body is moderately hazy, with a foamy white head that shows moderate retention, light lacing. Plentiful carbonation.
Brewed with raw ginger and it shows, giving that spicy, invigorating kick to the nose and with enough room for some dry wheat and light honey-dough-like maltiness to peek through. Some dry yeastiness dulls a bit (could be the actual wheat) but otherwise a very ample gingery aroma for an otherwise not spectacularly aromatic style.
Supple, nearly creamy body provides more than enough support to the spicy ginger, which is certainly the main show, though not overdone by any means. The maltiness shows more sweetness than is typical for an American wheat beer, with some light syrupiness that is quite honey-like but actually plays quite well with the ginger. Soft texture, no alcohol, moderate carbonation.

Mep3222 (423) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Aroma is almost like a sour aged in wine barrels. Get much wine aroma coming through. Taste is not quite as good as the aroma but still very good. Ginger comes through a bit but is very well done in this beer. Really some nice flavors. Very solid brew. Lighter but lots of complexity.

22oz bottle pours a clear gold with some bright, white head. Nose has some crystallized ginger, some malt sweetness, some lemon, some lemon grass, earthy, a little coriander. Flavor is sweet, a little chalky, some mild ginger on the tongue, coriander, some straw, some lemon. Clean finish.

Pours golden with thick white head, with smells of wheat and ginger. Taste is nice and sweet, with a good dose of ginger at the end. Not a huge fan of wheat beers, but this was quite enjoyable. Very good beer overall.
