Pours a pale straw colour - not very Ranga anyway. Head made up of small bubbles, white and impressively thick, leaves small lacing dots behind, but not much. Nice opaque cloudy body, with slow bead. Looks like a good hefeweizen. It's not a hefeweizen though, hmmm....

Nose, yeah lots of ginger on that with a goose dose of lemon. Actually smells remarkably like my mother's coconut, ginger and lemon slice. I know that's a reference everybody will get. But trust me, my mother's slice is tasty. Very biscuity malt behind it, with some buttery hints, but all topped by that pleasantly sweet ginger-lemon aroma. Pleasant, delivers what it promises.

Taste is not bad, starts tangy with hints of pale malt and a slight lemon zest. Mid becomes slightly weak and watery, just mildly sour from the lemon, before the ginger comes through at the back with a light zing, then re-emerges on the aftertaste with a bit of dry spice, distinct ginger melds with malt for a kind of gingerbread flavour. A bit simple overall, pretty much what I expected but little more.

Mouthfeel is quite full for the ABV, with good texture from the spice and fruit infusion. It's still a bit thin but doesn't disappoint, I guess because the flavours are sufficient to carry it.

Decent for what it is.
