Pours yellowish gold with slight whitish head. Nose is somewhat citrusy with underlying honey and lemony notes. Ginger presence is mild. Flavor has mild maltiness with faint sweetness. Not an overpowering beer, but a nice subtle change. Could be a nice session beer.

BBE Oct 06. Cloudy brown beer. Crisp palate. Nice blend of lemon and honey with ginger coming and adding bite. Finshes with a little carbonated bite. Unusual tasting beer. Spicy sweet lemon marmalade! Refreshing.

It’s pretty much all ginger here. Light bodied. Nose of honey and ginger spice. Taste is ginger spice with more ginger and some ginger spice.

An interesting beer.....light, fresh aroma of ginger and honey, along with some lemon. Flavor is primarily ginger, but the sweetness of the honey is detectable, as is the malt and lemon, but that is more in the background. Quite carbonated. A unique brew that is not altogether unpleasant.

Bottle thanks to daknole, October 2006. Dark brown orange with enormous clumps of brown yeasties. A thin white head. Aroma is mostly ginger with some clover honey presence. Taste is almost all ginger. Depends on your taste for ginger.

Well this beer sucked ass. Tasted like someone took a sprite and poured an ounce of bud and fresh ginger in it. YUCK.

12 oz bottle shared at Lost Abbey release. Now see, I can drink this even though many people didn’t like it. I think I really like the Spice Herb Style beers. Spicy ginger aromas with the honey making a serious appearance in the flavor. Pretty tasty.

This was a decent beer, but man it was ugly. Lots of gloppy mess with yeast sediment and what I thought were ginger pieces. It has a strong ginger aroma with a taste like slightly fizzy ginger tea. Sweet in flavor and finish. Lots of sweet ginger. Respectable beer.

Ginger, honey, and lemon, a real nice tasting brew. Really well balanced, especially for being nearly 2 years out of date. Unfortunately out of production as it was a limited edition.

This was just too much for me to handle. This had an aroma of lemon balm tea, slightly like a cough syrup would have. Overspiced, and imbalanced, this is almost undrinkable.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Honey and ginger aroma with some type of adjunct coming through. Flavor is strong honey up front with some lemon fading to slight ginger and more adjunct and a little lingering lemon flavor. Clear light gold pour with a small white head and some sediment. Body is thin and watery.
