33 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 24.10.2013
Aroma is stale with herbs and spices. Somewhat foamy and sticky palate. Flavour has spices, ginger and hints of apricot. Weird stuff.

swampwater (13) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Day 9 of Julepakkekalender from Mikkeller. Bottled.

Aroma: Has a cheesy nose, reminiscent of pecorino. Slight whiffs of ginger and hops.
Appearance: Pours a hazy gold. Has a light head, that sat on top for the whole time (30 minutes).
Taste: A sweet, mild ginger flavour. A very smooth honey aftertaste.
Palate: A bit bitter from the ginger, but overall very sweet. The use of honey lets the beer slide down your throat. Light carbonation. Medium body. Slightly creamy.
Overall: I thought Iíd hate this beer, but I was wrong! The ginger taste isnít overpowering, and the addition of honey helps this beer become FAR too drinkable. Itís almost like a sore throat cure for beer lovers. It reminds me of sparkling mead.

jmgreenuk (4956) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle at House of Beers, Thonglor, Bangkok. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head and a little broken lace. The aroma is yeast, light malt, light citrus fruit. The flavour is moderate bitter with a crisp refreshing light honey ginger hop spice palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Nice to drink in its own, but needs food I feel and thatís what It was brewed for after all.

ogivlado (5894) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottled 330ml. -from Svijet Piva. Pale golden coloured, medium sized airy white head that went away fast, mild spicy nose. Sweetish malty, light spicy and fruity with notes of ginger and yeast. Mild hint of honey in rather dry finish. Not the best one in town, and for sure 5Ä for this is a way too much.

Ragnampiza (515) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - SEP 15, 2014
330 ml bottle from Hop Corner. Light sunrise orange, pretty clear, with an average, creamy and persistent bright white head. Quite herbal and perfumy nose, some grass and spices, dark/rye bread, light hoppy notes. Very light and zingy, pretty sweet and astringent. Malty and salty/mineral taste. Harsh medicinal aftertaste. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture. Not my cup of tea.

daje (2609) - NORWAY - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden body, with a low white head. Aroma of light malts, light fruity hops and honey. taste is flowery with malt and ginger, pretty sweet overall, light bitterness. Spicy ginger and grassy hop finish. I donít know, sometimes strange things work, this time it probably didnít.
