COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aromas of sour bruised citrus, and shaved ginger peel follow through on a round, supple entry to a tart, dry medium-to-full body with sour green apple notes and a tangy, mouthwatering fade. Served in a snifter.

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.

On tap at brewpub, this beer alone is worth the drive to Grumpy Troll, pours a clear golden color with no head, aroma is full of sour fruit and some funk mixed in, has an intense sour front end with some great sour apple notes to it mixed in with funk, this is a special beer.

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.
