2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Refrigerated bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours a medium hazy orange with white head that dissapates quickly. Pretty good lacing and some carbonation. Taste is wheat, orange, and ginger. Ok beer, but I can see where you would either love it or hate it.

Pours hazy orange with a off white head. Very nice ginger aroma. Flavor of orange and ginger, and balances nicely with the rich wheat malt. Aftertaste is somewhat sweet and bitter. Body is a little thin, but it was very refreshing on a hot day. OK for a Macro

Wonder what this would be like with some Chinese food? Quite an accentuated spiciness in the nose. The appearance is decent, looks tasty. The taste is a bit too one-dimensional with ginger. Thanks for the trade Ron.

Mich Ginger: Smells clean with some metallic notes. Some sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Orange fruity taste at first. Looks like a darker wheat beer. A little bitterness with a soda pop kinda feel to it. Crisp. Finish is dull lemon peel sensations. Not a sweet ginger by any means. Not bad overall but I don’t think this could be sessionable - one or two OK, but not a bunch in a row.

Smells of ginger, tastes like ginger, might as well be soda style ginger ale. Not very good, but not too terrible. You’ll want to brush your teeth after to rid yourself of all the ginger. Wouldn’t recommend.

This is for ginger lovers which I am not. It should be approached- gingerly.

Hazy yellow, white foam. Aroma is strong ginger, coriander, wheat, citrus, orange. Taste is the same, pretty good wheat, citrusy orange, with a touch of ginger.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This one is a tough drink. The ginger aroma and flavor is very upfront with a thin somewhat tart malt finish. Pours a nice looking cloudy orangy maize. Thin bodied with a somewhat dry finish.

As oil and water don’t mix neither does beer and ginger. As much as I tried I couldn’t finish even one bottle. Usually I will try a beer at another time but in this case I’m tossing the remainder. I was kinda shocked how the other reviewers rated this so good. Oh well....

Poured from bottle into a goblet. Medium head white head with a dense yellow body that was nearly opaque. Aroma consisted of the spicy ginger and malt. Taste follows the pattern of the aroma with that traditional wheat aftertaste that reminds one so much of banana nut bread. Great beer that is definitely worth giving a chance if you enjoy wheat beers or you just want to try something interesting.
