(Bottled) Slightly hazy yellow color with a medium, foamy and white head. Fruity-spicy aroma of ginger and apricots. Ginger-spicy, wheaty flavor, somewhat like the Swaf! brews. Not much malt or hops - or they’re hidden behind the exotic roots. Fortunately, so is most of the alcohol. Light to medium-bodied, neutral palate with foamy carbonation. Not at all cloying like the banana version, and even refreshing, if you’re a fan of gingery flavors.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Hazy pale golden with some sediment and small creamy head. Dryish with vanilla and dough. Very light bodied with clean mouthfeel. Despite a touch of metal it’s actually refreshing, seemingly witbier based. Low bitterness. It was a surprise for me that I actually liked this beer - usually I frown upon Huyghe’s mega-sweet beers.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2007
Bottle at home. Fruity scent. Little head. Orange, sweet and strong alcohol flavour. Sugary, caramel flavour. Better than the banana one but still very suspect. Not my thing.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2007
Sweet and spicy scent, very different.. orange and hazy (floating particles) in colour with white head. Tastes of HP sauce..?? Fruity and sweet. Very odd. Pleasant though.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2006
Pale gold with a huge frothy head. Lots of yeast floating in it which means the aroma is yeasty and leathery. I quite liked the taste; it was much better than the Mongozo banana. It’s basically beer ’n’ tonic: sour at first with a pleasant, unusual, non-hoppy dryness. It’s not bad.

At Smokeless Joe’s. Grainy though it is a plant. Good yeast and a plant beer, farmhouse aroma, abundant yeast and a unique Belgium. Smooth though drying finish

Aroma of wheat and malt, opaque yellow, tiny white head. Soft malt flavour, slightly wheat as well, not a trace of spice. Light bodied, sweet. Ordinary.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2006
Cloudy orange beer with a white head. Malty and grainy sweet aroma with a faint yeasty note. Weid harsh earthy aroma, I guess thats where the roots come in... strange beer.

a sim rate: (bottled from Ramsgate Brewery) Smells just like tamales! Very corn aroma. Very sweet and overly tart. Very metallic in the first taste. Nothing special about it.
