A hazy golden ale with a super thick off white head. A pleasant aroma of ginger, berries, licorice and cinnamon. In mouth, liquid gingerbread, nice sweet and interesting. Medium bodied. On tap at Mondiale 2009. Sammy (12211) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2009
Served to some of the raters by the owner on the first day of Mondiale 2009. roobis and a lot of malt. A little white head. Gingery, not all that drinkable and some sediment made for a slightly negative appearance to the light red colour. First few sips were something else and ineteresting.

2009-06-06. Murky pastel orange-amber body with a modest white head. Very intense aroma of spices. Cinnamon, chai? Interesting sweetness, muted pale malts. (7+) Flavour has a similar spice character, like a chair or mulled cider perhaps? Melange of spice, sweet at times but well balanced with the spice and light bitterness. (6+) Average palate suits the beer. I would not want to drink pint after pint of it but I found it pleasant, interesting.

Draught at ’Mondial de la Biere 2009’, Montréal, QC. Also called ’Biere du Mondial 16ième’. Pours a very cloudy orange-copper with an average size semi-lasting creamy white head. Aroma: Smells great! Ginger, malt, cinnamon, chai tea, herbs and more. Delicious flavour of ginger, fruit, chai tea, herbs and spices -- so refreshing! Medium bodied. Simply fantastic and one of my favourite beers at the festival! Radek Kliber (7363) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 9, 2009

Draught. Mondiale 2009 - day 2. Let me be clear - frickin’ LOVED this beer. Murky brick-red pour with a decent and lasting off-white head. Pungent aroma of black tea and floral bitterness, with black pepper spiciness all overlaying a strong underlying "Belgian" yeast and candy character. Lush, sweet malt/yeast taste, with spicy black chai character; chewy, yeasty, grainy and incredibly appealing; okay it was a tad undercarbonated, but that’s being PICKY, this was like a thick chai infusion into a solid Belgian ale - well done indeed.

Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ale with a medium foamy head with light retention. Aroma of Rooibos tea is quite dominant with light unrefined grainy notes also perceptible. Taste is a weird mix between the some unrefined wheat malt notes and some Rooibos tea with a light astringent finish. Body is light with good carbonation. This mix between tea and beer is not the easiest to put together and I must admit that this si not a case were the experiment was successful.
