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. Itís not bad, but Iím not a big fan.

Bottled @ Camping Ratebeers 2014, small sample. Slight hazy golden color, medium head. Aroma has some rye, bit citrussy hops, slight spicy, ginger indeed, slight tart. Slight refreshing sourish note, bit sweet, slight bitter. Decent balance. I like it.

tectactoe (1657) - Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle: Muddy, orange-amber with some copper highlights. Dark hued for a hefeweizen. Nearly opaque, mild translucency at the edges. Even a straight pour produces a measly, thin white film on top... Again, atypical for the style. The nose comprises of LOTS of ginger with very apparent hefeweizen yeast. Typical notes of peppery clove, bubblegum, & banana esters are there, but play secondary to the ginger. Ginger is even more potent on the palate. Spicy, but not too abrasive thanks to the chunky balance of clove, white pepper, & yeast esters present. Some vague fruity sweetness in the aftertaste, hint of sugary sweetness with lingering clove & ginger. Decent mouth feel, chewy & pretty thick. Unique, but basically ginger root dropped into merely a decent hefeweizen. I donít normally love ginger but I think it works somewhat well with the hefe yeast flavors. Just needs to be toned down a bit, maybe.

Drake (8186) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2014
750 mL bottle from jtclockwork. Thanks! Pours a hazy amber color with a huge foamy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of toasted caramel malts, rye, apple, spicy ginger. The taste is strong ginger, earth, spice, lemon, toasted malts, rye. Medium bodied, lingering lemon and ginger.

In short: A sweet rye beer overwhelmed by ginger. Not for me.
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed (probably fresh) immediately after receiving it from cetherid, thanks Chris .
The look: Cloudy orange body topped by a white ring of foam.
In long: Aroma and taste is just what the name implies. Ginger, rye and then more ginger. I was excited to try this beer because of the Rye part of the name (Iím a rye beer lover) but I was also scared because of the Ginger part of the name. Sadly it is the ginger that overtakes the beer and totally ruined it. And to make matter worse there was also quite a bit of residual sugars. More of a gimmick than a real beer, a gimmick that some may like, but I sure didnít. I didnít finish y bottle, a tiny 12oz bottle. I know this is a mean rating but it is not because Iím a Canadian that I should always be fucken polite, also Iím sorry I used a big f-word, I wonít do it again I promise.
