13-Mar-12 (750-ml bottle)
This tasty Belgian ale brewed with ginger is a wonderfully refreshing beer. The moderately sweet, fairly bready, doughy, and mildly toasty malts set a substantial base, while light hops add a touch of grassiness and modest bitterness, and ginger gives the flavor quite a bit of spicy pizzazz into the long finish. The nose is very similar, with aromas of ginger, hay, sweet, bready malts, honey, and alcohol. The beer is medium-full bodied with some additional weight from residual sugar, and the carbonation is low-medium, but the ginger makes up for that with its added vibrancy. Clear and pale-golden in color, though subsequent pours are cloudy, and the off-white head pours to nearly an inch before settling to a wide ring and dusty coating. Overall, this is a pretty nice beer. The ginger is at just the right level so that proper balance is maintained. I dont know if Id buy it again, but I at least enjoyed all 750-ml of this beer tonight.

deanso (9809) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - AUG 10, 2016

adamnowek (2188) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2016
Appearance is like a typical blonde: nearly clear golden, consistent head. Aroma is sweet and a bit shrimpy. Taste is big on ginger with some spice on the finish.

YigSvartka (304) - Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 26, 2016
Cloudy opaque orange with a negligibly sized white head. Malt forward aroma with notes of bubblegum, banana, yeast and caramel. Heavy and smooth bodied. Banana, caramel and yeast dominate with flavours such as vanilla and orange present as well. Too sweet for my liking.

rondphoto (4261) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 4, 2016
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- dated: 03/2014 -Hazy light golden amber color, off-white head cover, bands of lace. Aroma of malt and ginger. Taste is caramel malt and ginger that turn to strong carbonation on the swallow, moving from there to mild bittering in the finish. Better than other ginger beers Ive tried. Easy to drink.

Grzesiek79 (4164) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Many thanks for this beer to JefVerstraete. Piwo jak u Belga spora biala i puszysta piana. lekka metnosc i drobinki jakby imbiru. Zapach swiezo tartego imbiru. W smaku imbir, korzen pietruszki, pasternak. Ogolnie wazywne posmaki. Na sam koniec ziemniaczane puree. Piwo w moim odbiorze delikatne i zaskakujące zarazem, choć sadzilem ze będzie bardziej drapieżne przez imbir. Ogolnie OK

8/8/2009 4:08:16 AM Bottle at De Spuyt. Golden yellow body with big white head. Ginger nose and taste are hard to miss and unusual (one of 3 on RateBeer) but really not my thing. Bitter finish. Warming due to high ABV.
