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 (2083) - 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)

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 8, 2013
Clear ginger yet with enough moderation. Soft herbal aroma, actually better than I expected. Light bubbly, easy to drink although a bit astringent aftertaste.

worldbeertaste (1610) - AUSTRIA - JUL 31, 2013
Medium gold with a thick, lasting off-white, sliding off the glass lacy head. Rich smell of ginger consumes, like a ginger cookie with cinnamon and less like a ginger beer. Frothy, medium oily body. Tastes of ginger right off the bat with some light citrus and yeast on the finish. Something like orange peel lingers.

Frovigalning (2933) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2013
On tap at one of Frog XVI. Strong smell of ginger. Milder taste but ginger was dominant. Too much ginger for my taste.

TheJestersBeer (2036) - SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2013 Draught @ Frog Bercy. Pours a medium straw, with a thin white head. Spicy aroma, ginger, citrus, wheat. Dry, light bodied, low bitterness, balanced CO2. Spicy, slightly acidic taste, ginger, citrus, cardboard. Refreshing, but not very well made. (2013-06-05)
