From 22 ounce bottle. Lots of ginger flavor, but really fresh and tangy ginger. Amazingly well balanced and refreshing.
On tap at NAOBF. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. A huge natural ginger nose. The flavor is malty, fizzy, big ginger, lively carbonation. Quite smooth and very drinkable. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2013 Bottle pour. Vibrant, spicy ginger and orange juice aroma. Spicy, rich and expressive ginger root with some waxy sunscreen and tangy citrus acid. A better version than the rose petal or base golden ale, actually. I usually prefer unadulterated Belgian ales and saisons but I have a soft spot for ginger beer, and in this case the ginger gives the base beer some life and vibrancy that the yeast strain just can’t provide on its own. cleminator13 (2) - Oregon, USA - MAY 21, 2012 does not count
Bought a bottle from Tom Kramer a the Orenco Farmer’s Market. Light, refreshing, full of ginger flavor with some spice and a slight bitter bite at the end. It has a bright golden to honey color, wonder balance of carbonation and unmistakable Belgian influences from the farmhouse yeast. If you like ginger and/or unique beers, this beer is worth seeking out.
