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%.

On draft at Frog & Rosbif in Toulouse. Pours a clear yellow/amber with frothy white head. Aroma of ginger and malts, taste similar, sweet with citrus. High carbonation, almost like a champagne, medium bodied. Very refreshing.

Clear brass colour. Strong and fresh ginger aroma. Taste is incredibly fresh ginger with a bit of malt. I could knock back nine of these on a hot day.

Cask at the F&B in Paris. Amber gold color with a creamy beige head. Smells like ginger. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is mild caramel with a largish dose of ginger. Bet this would be great with sushi! I love ginger.

erickok (5398) - Leuven, BELGIUM - 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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4596) - 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.

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2015
[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.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Draft at the Frog & Princess in Paris. Poured a clear orange color. Head was white and left a little lace behind. Distinct, but subdued ginger aroma and flavor with a light citrus malty caramel accents. Interesting beer.
