What started many years ago as a seasonal brew has become a FrogBeer cellar icon! By combining the pleasantly floral aroma of a mild Bobek hop with fresh root ginger, lemon and lime our brewers have created a truly unique beer, notable for its zingy aftertaste and drinkability! Crisp, clear golden amber in colour; fresh, fizzy and full of flavour; we are proud to say that there’s no other beer that we’ve tasted (yet!) that’s quite like our Ginger Twist.

A ginger seasoned Summer lager initially brewed for the 2002 World cup (Coupe du Monde) and formerly known as Coupe du Blonde and at 4.8%.

Bottle in Paris. Smooth mild beginning. Not too intense. Hints of lemon, not much ginger. Sweetish and easy to drink. No depth, refreshing with a not much bitter aftertaste. Fruity but not more.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3433) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 8, 2015
Ginger twist Amber ale 4.2% pours the light gold I am coming to expect from these guys. Nice fruity ginger and light Pilsner malt notes. Somewhat radler like but tasty.

On tap @ Frog & Princess (Paris). Coppery color with a minimal and quickly diminishing light white head. Aroma has strong notes of ginger with hints of caramel. High presence of ginger on palate. Light red fruits in the aftertaste.

[Draught at Frog XVI, Paris, May 22] 31st rating of my Paris/Amsterdam trip. Pours a hazy yellow-gold, quite bubbly, with a small diminishing fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, fruit and ginger along with a bit of bread and that’s it. Slightly watery flavour has a good amount of ginger -- kind of tastes like a Blonde Ale with some ginger. Average bodied. Not as much ginger as I’d like but still more then some -- just pretty good overall.

Tap at the Frog pub near the Madeline in Paris. Well, this had a definite ginger taste and it wasn’t too strong, but the ginger kinda overtook any other flavors and it tasted like a lager mixed with ginger ale. If you fantasize about ginger it is too weak (no heat), for most it is too strong. Easy to drink though.

imdownthepub (11663) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Keg at The Frog & Rosbif, Paris. Gold with fizzed white head. There is quite a harsh ginger spiced note to this, edgy, sweetish lager notes with a wet cardboard hint. Not really my thing.

John25 (1170) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Draft Frog XVI Paris July 2014. Strawberry blonde pour. The aroma was mainly ginger and tangerine. Very bitter, candied sugar, lemon, and ginger taste. Similar to summer shandy beers. Not my kind of brew but, I only had a few sips to try it. Hard to drink.

4oz pour at the Toulouse location comes out a clear gold with some white head. Nose has big ginger, candy, some pepper. Flavor is all honey and candy with a spike of ginger. Zesty finish. Just ginger ale with alcohol.

vipinvelp (2999) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2014
Clear little pale yellow with no foam left. Aroma has ginger present. So in taste, some barley with stronger ginger notes. Ginger also there in aftertaste, does the name right. (Paris 201402)
