3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this beer.
The beer gushes out the top when opened and then pours a murky orange color with a white head. The aroma is tart lemon with some nice malt and brett character. The flavor is very tart with some brett funk as well as some lemons and oranges. Tart, funky finish. High carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Hazy reddish amber body with a fine off-white head. Aroma is ginger, fruit and flowers. Flavor is sweet malt, distinct ginger, fruit and hops. A nice ginger flavored ale with a crisp ginger flavor, still not to extreme. Not particular complex, quite quaffable and well hidden alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33 L bottle@Håndverkstuene, Oslo. A finger of blond foamy head upon a hazed, dark copper colored body. Perfumed, light soapy aroma of spiced and candied fruits. Quite appealing actually. Ginger is well prononced in the flavor, not predominant though. Medium sweet taste, more fruity than malty. Bon bon fruitiness with a light astringency and restrained gingerized dark malts. Clean on the palate. Crisp finish. Easy drinking for a 7.5% beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting at The Stable. Kind of a glowing orange gold color. Sweet spicy aroma with cinnamon. Flavor is also spice and dry hops. Just a hint of maltiness. Pleasant but not complex.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dark, hazy orange with a soap bubbly tan head. Aroma is a bit soapy as well. The ginger seems well integrated, not overpowering, and it comes off as candied. There are other notes as well, vanilla, a faint hard roasty note, and something vegetable-like. Sweet and nectarlike on the tongue at first before a sizable fruity and spicy finish cleans the palate. Dry,light and refreshing, this isn’t bad at all. Was very surprised to read 7% abv on the label, not a trace of alcohol notes in this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7%. Amber colour, slightly hazy, big off-white head. Nice aroma of fresh ginger and fruity and flowery hops, hints of lemongrass. The flavour is malty sweet with ginger as the dominant element throughout, hints of sweet fruits and candy. The finish is drier, with moderate hops. A fairly good beer if you like ginger (I do) - but if you hate ginger or are allergic to it, you are looking for trouble here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
3rd November 2008. Cloudy brown beer. Sweet aromatic ginger dominates all aspects of this beer but there is only a touch of ginger burn at the finish. Goes down easy and refreshes the palate with it distinct but light taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderately-sized, very frothy white head. Lacing is very strong. Aromas of ginger dominate, with citrus and candy also present. Palate is very smooth with a creamy start and a nice sticky finish. Drinks very similar to a Belgium beer. Flavors of lemon, ginger, and licorice. A strange yet addicting beer.
