pintbypint (3877) - Edmonton, Alberta, - NOV 30, 2012
330ml brown bottle. golden coloured beer, haze. giant white head, creamy, sticky, huge. Nose has some candy sweet notes, zest of orange. Taste starts sweet, gets overtaken by sharp citrus notes, oranges, zesty. Finishes with decent lingering bitterness, sharp citrus peel notes and a faint pine hint. Dries out a bit in the end. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Nice beer, ginger isn’t leaping out, but I can tell it’s there. Enjoyable.

kaserov (1024) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 10, 2017
Color dorado, translúcido, con capa de espuma de tres dedos de grosor y muy buena retención. Carbonatación media tirando a alta. Textura oleosa, casi cremosa en los primeros tragos. En nariz hay pino, resina, malta caramelizada y un ligero toque especiado que puede ser jengibre o puede ser otra cosa. También recuerdos de anís. Pino y más pino en boca. Base de malta caramelizada, entrada casi dulce. Ligeros cítricos, algo de resina. Sensación licorosa al final del trago, sin verdadero alcohol. Rica.

This is a beer that is all the better for its weirdness. The fresh ginger adds a fresh bite that works beautifully with the natural spiciness from the hops. The pine needles basically disappear into the piney hop backdrop, but they make for a nice touch. If you want to feel like you're drinking your Christmas tree and gingerbread house at the same time, this is probably your best option.

Bottle from Pivný raj.
First day of snow apocalypse here so why not to drink one Christmas ale.
And I certainly have to admit that Christmas is much better period for beer than Halloween (God forbid pumpkins).
This certainly doesn't have a warning alcohol, but ginger plays well here. Also decent amount of hoppiness is just about right. Good that Christmas are back.

De geur is weeral enorm ipa-achtig.
Veel schuim. De smaak is ook weer heel uitgesproken ipa. Dus niets voor mij
