3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Haand Festival 2012. Itís an unclear, orange-golden beer topped by a finger-thick, dense white head. The aroma has some wheat and pale malt, a good dash of ginger and Belgian saison yeast. Faintly peppery, and thereís also a generic spiced touch I canít pinpoint. The flavor has a balancing bitterness, itís dry and nicely carbonated, with ginger, pale malts and a little , spiced, peppery twist. Some citrus notes. Lasting fruity finish. Might be the first time Iíve had a ginger-infused beer I really like, the level of ginger is spot on. Not extreme in any way, just there to add a little twist, and the saison yeast sure handles it well. 130525
