3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Grumpy Troll brewpub in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. Pours a clear orange amber colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind no lacing and no ring. Aroma of sour ginger, apple spice, a hint of raisin, cloves and a hint of rice vinegar. Taste is tart, with flavors of vinegar ginger, apple and a touch of horse blanket. Finish is slightly tart with plenty of ginger aftertaste to keep the flavor around.

Wow, this one really works. All WI-area sour freaks should descend upon the Grumpy Troll in search of this one. Fruity, sweet, and tart aroma. Orange amber color, looks unfiltered. The best ginger beer I’ve ever had. Perfectly incorporates the ginger with the lambic-like fruity tartness. Awesome.
