Fantastic! I love ginger - the spice is subtle and the beer is surprisingly refreshing, not sticky, not sweet. They hit a home run with this one.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy old gold color with a thick off-white head. LOADS of ginger in the crisp, wheaty, floral aroma. Plenty of honey in there too. A crisp, thin body. The flavor starts with some sweet cereal grains and honey and transitions to a wheaty finish with a touch of lemon. There is a VERY strong, spicy ginger quality throughout that tends to overshadow everything. Definitely unique.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle/22 - Poured a slightly hazy straw yellow in color with a tight bright white head that stuck around for a while. Small lacing on the glass. Aroma is of lemon, ginger, unidentifiable spices and a small amount of very floral hops. Flavor is medium of the floral hops with plenty of the ginger, honey and lemon acidity. Finish is quite clean with lingering lemony notes. Clean, balanced and well worth drinking.

Clear golden pour. Very fresh ginger aroma. Intense, ginger dominates. Some floral notes. Bitter wheaty flavor with ginger. Not as overpowering as in the aroma. Nice and balanced with a little sweetness.
