A dose of fresh ginger roots added to the brewkettle creates an intriguing mix of ginger, malt-sweetness , and citruslike aromas and flavors Hoppy dryness is very subdued with ginger-sweet-spicey notes dominating throughout to the very finish.

Nonshaugen (424) - Fetsund, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2016
33 cl, bottle conditioned. Unfiltered with a merky appearance, thin tan head, low carbonation. Smells like fruit-cake, caramel and, of course, ginger. Medium carbonation, slightly dry mouthfeel. Taste is full of herbs and spices, sweet caramel, honey/fruit-cake and a nice ginger note at the back. The ginger is nicely blended in, and don’t bring you the kind of ginger-kick you can get from a saison sometimes. Interesting beer, but one bottle is enough for me.

Beerheart65 (1391) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2016
Blind tasted. Interesting and silly results. Clear deep amber, creamy head is off-white, bit lacing. Aroma has caramel, dried fruits and sausage? (Yup... I missed ginger), malt. Medium body, bit sticky feel, low carbonation, medium long finish is dry. Interestin aroma, malty. And finishing note when blindfold opened: one of better ginger beers when maltyness bit covers ginger. Ofc it was obviously there once I knew it is there. Silly me.

DandyWolfFloyd (1020) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Aroma - ginger, alcohol, caramel malt, and spice. Appearance - sepia colored body, cloudy, and unfiltered. The head is about 1/8" and white, and quickly rings out. Taste - big ginger of course, some other spice like nutmeg and clove. Caramel malt stands under the spice. Palate - the body is medium, carbonation is flat, the finish spiced.
