Nice winter beer that’s comparable with trois dames witbeer with oranges, spices and ginger. Sadly the ginger overdoes its purpose and it results in a non-hoppy aggressive bitterness in the aftertaste.

SinH4 (3174) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2014
Cloudy yellow color with big head. Aroma is yeasty and orange peel, ginger is not really noticeable. Freshness in there as well. Taste begins fruity and spicy, finish is bitter and weirdly metallic. Trois Dames seems to mess up their finish sometimes...

bnokk (472) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 5, 2014
22 oz bottle APPEARANCE – Effervescent & yellow. very turbid. could be a wheat beer. NOSE - slight sour, light spice. coriander(?). FLAVOR - bright & effervescent. Super light sour flavor. NOTES - Bottle about blew up when we opened it. It’s a folly to call this a winter beer.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml bottle served in a Snifter glass. A: Pours a dark hazy orange forming a medium bubbled white to yellow head. Some chunks of foam formed on the top. Some spotty lacings are left in the glass S: A bit weird, very spicy. Strong notes of ginger and orange. Also malts and flowery hops. Quite fruity too with notes of citric fruits mainly T: Very spicy in the mouth too. Slightly sweet upfront. Sweet grains and fruits. Strong notes of orange zest and ginger finished by bitter and grassy hops M: Medium body and carbonation. A little bit molasses. Aftertaste is citrus and bitter O: Good drinkability. Interesting experience. Trois Dames quality. Recommended [ BA Review @ 12/15/2012 ]

Slightly cloudy yellow. Big citrus nose. Spritely citrus tart with warm ginger flavors. Leaves mouth feeling velvety and ginger dry.

Sour lemonish taste, not a lot of ginger. Eggwhite foam and yeast aroma. Very different winter brew.
