Pours out just like a wit should, with a small, whispy white head that fades to a spotty film. Fruity and spicy aroma of lemon, corriander, ginger, orange peel and mild acetic and lactic acid. The flavour is not as fruity, with more emphasis on the corriander and noticable acidity. The finish is grassy and spicy. It’s supported by a thin, watery body with tingly canbonation and a crisp, dry finish. Definitely a good quencher that has great drinkability.

Fruity explosion in the aroma. Very apricot-like with subtle spice. Super light flavor, but nice.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2007
pours gold with a slight haze. small floaters evident. light, fizzy head that quickly dissipates to a fine film. Lots a ginger on the nose. flavor following suite. this really tastes alot like ginger ale. Bought this with intention of drinking this on thanksgiving, but I never got around to it. It would’ve been nice.

Meatwad (26) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 Single bottle: i had this at the Ginger Man in Manhattan (subsequently I had about 3 bottles at home and have dropped its rating a bit as I liked hop-it, westmalle trappist ale, and some other belgian blondes as much or better). I think it was a bottle, it may have been a tap. lightly sweet taste, light citrus and spicy taste, very smooth, palate is complex, seems watery and creamy at the same time. The lightest tasting beer I ’ve ever had. Good flavor, but there’s not enough of it. Not quite as good as the Japanese Ale, but they are very different styles.

Bottle shared with GregClow, Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Jerc, courtesy of Blankboy. Nice aroma - lots of ginger and some citrus. Cloudy yellow, medium white head. Decent taste - ginger, lemon, light fizzy body - very refreshing. I wanted little more omph in the flavour, otherwise, a nice beer.

rocbyter (1942) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Lots of coriander in the aroma. Slight amounts of citrus also. Cloudy yellow color with a small white head. Starts mild then developing a coriander bitterness and some sweetness. Finish is a lingering citrus flavor. Perfect amount of stickiness in the palate.

DuffMan (7828) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2007
Cloudy orange-gold, exuberent white merangue of a head displaying excellent retention and lacing. Very fragrant aromas of kumquat, coriander, cardamom. Refreshingly crisp with flavours of spicey citrus, some ginger, and a tart finish. Excellent!

nramsburg (259) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Citrusy aroma that’s also a bit grassy. Definite notes of lemon. Smells almost of gatorade at times. Slightly sour on the palate, quite interesting and tangy. Nice beer.

GregClow (2973) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle shared with tupalev, HogTownHarry, blankboy and jerc - blankboy’s bottle. Very hazy light gols with a moderate sized white head. Aroma is quote floral and herbal, with some notes of lemon and grass. Body is very effervescent. Flavour is a bit mild, but very nice and herbal, with notes of ginger and gladiolas (or at least what I imagine gladiolas taste like...). Very good stuff!
