• 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.

On tap at 2013 GTMW, pours a clear orange with an white head, the aroma was of a lot of spice and just a little bit of fruit with it, the flavor was of pretty heavy spice and rye with a little bit of hops showing up in the finish, not bad.

Bottle. The pour is a bright hazy orange. The aroma is powerfully rye. The taste is mostly rye, with faint hops. Interesting and drinks smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quite an interesting beer with a unique palate. Tastes a bit like an imperial hefeweizen with ginger added. Has strong flavors of banana, cloves, and spicy ginger.

Bottle. Pour is a hazy orange with an initial nice white head that resides quickly. Aroma is a ginger, sweet, spicy. Taste of ginger is strong going sweet to bitter but is nice, crisp and refreshing. Overall not to bad of a beer. I think with changing the amount of each ingredient it could be better. Same with Nice Spice. Less or more of one thing can change it and make it better. But again overall a pretty solid one if you like ginger and hef's ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mittenator (1284) - Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. Bright golden orange with a minimal orangey white head. Strong ginger and spice aroma. A bit like a ginger snap. Tastes similar with a bunch of additional orange flavor. The aroma and flavor was much more pleasant as it warmed.

Very gingery. Too much so. Wouldn't try again. But ok. Need more characters. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to BlowOffTube. Pours a bright cloudy orange color. Smells a tad like ginger but mostly hefeweizen. Same with the taste.

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass. Appearance is a hazy golden-orange with no head. Aroma is wheat, banana, rye, and a sour scent like lemon. The taste is similar, but it is also sweeter. I can definitely taste the ginger. Smooth and crisp feel. It’s not bad, but I’m not a big fan.

12oz bottle, pours hazy bright orange with white head. Smells of yeast, ginger, spice. Wow that’s gingery, dominates the taste along with some banana, spice, and rye. Ugh...can’t say I’m a fan of this one.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy golden with an off-white head. The aroma is ginger with spicy rye, hops, and fruity yeast. The flavor is light sweet and light to medium bitter with fresh ginger and a good amount of spicy rye. Nice refreshing citrus tones in the background.
