• A most distinguished effervescent potable of total consciousness
• Beer Type: High Gravity Rye Ale fermented with Weizen yeast and aged on fresh ginger

Ginger in the Rye is a deep, golden color that has a strong ginger aroma. The zing of fresh ginger mixes well with the pepper spice that comes from the copious amounts of rye.

FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle at Tuulensuu, Tampere Mid- to darkish-orange Doesn’t smell hugely gingery - the main aroma I get is something I associate with saliva (no, I did not dribble in the glass) - but ginger is there. There is ginger also in what I’ll call a general beery taste. Slight banana perhaps from the yeast. Unusually, Phil did not share this.

mjs (4543) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 28, 2009
(Bottle at Pikkulintu, Helsinki, on 2009-04-24 -- shared with teme, thanks!) Amber / copper colour and almost clear. Large white head. Ginger, hops and fruitiness in aroma. Medium bodied, dryish and lightly oily palate with medium carbonation and burning feeling from ginger. Frutiness, Belgian like yeastiness, ginger, hops, bitterness, grapefruit and hint of butter in taste.

Strong fragrance and flavor. Lots of rye and just a bit of ginger. Fairly bitter on the finish. Not bad, but not easy to drink.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - APR 6, 2009
Not for me. Not a big ginger fan and this is definitely ginger. A bit spicy and malty with hints of citrus fruit.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - APR 5, 2009
Courtesy GoT. Hazy copper/orange, large foamy off white head. The combination of fresh ginger, rye, and too much carbonation make this astringent and difficult to drink. I’d like to try this with less expressive yeast and a little sweeter malt to balance the bitter and aromatic components.

lb4lb (2520) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2009
bottle in trade from ogglethorp. Thanks! Pours hazy orange with a short lived head. Smell is fresh ginger, and malt. Taste is very dry ginger and lots of hops. Medium to thin body with normal to high carbonation. Very gingery, with nothing much else going on, but perfectly drinkable if you like ginger. Value-wise this is ridiculously overpriced however at around $20 a bottle, I believe.

hopdog (8852) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2009
750ml bottle acquired in trade with hoppymeal (thanks Derek!). Bottle # 87 of 1104. Poured a medum golden colol with a rather large sized off white head. Aromas of ginger, toasty, citrus, and yeasty. Tastes of ginger, citrus rinds, caramel, and had a peppery finish. If you like ginger, seek this one out.

hallinghansen (1934) - Odense S, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2009
Bottle. Hazy golden/orange body, with amedium off-white head. Aroma is dominated by ginger. Flavor is also dominated by ginger. Way to much ginger for me.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2009
It is hazy, orange-brown-golden with a huge, creamy and very lasting head. The aroma has notes of fresh cut ginger and a little malt. The flavour has a lot of fresh ginger, but also a little malt, yeast and in the finish there is a little citrussy bitterness together with the peppery ginger. It is rather sharp, raw and edgy, and you have to love ginger a lot to fully appreciate it.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Tasting @ argo0’s place. 750ml bottle, #105 of 1104. Lightly hazed gold with a huge yellowy head. Well carbonated, lots of drippy lace. Caramel and floral nose, light ginger. Tasty caramel and ginger, rye notes. A mild warmth in the throat - hard to say if it’s alcohol or the ginger. Interesting stuff.
