On tap for the 2012 Peter Reeves Memorial Sourfest at Churchill’s Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.
Pours a hazy orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Thick foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart and sure enough smells like honey, ginger, and lime. Taste is much the same with only a slight sourness. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is super tasty and easy to drink.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ
A: The beer pours a pale golden color with a minimal white head.
S: Just a huge ginger aroma to this one. The lime is almost as strong. There are also some different herbal notes such as basil and mint. A mild vanilla and oak note with light lemon zest.
T: The flavor is almost all ginger. A decent sweetness of honey with some strong lemon and lime notes coming through as well. There is a mild mint and just a very herbal flavor. It's only slightly tart.
M: The body is medium with low to medium carbonation.
O: This beer was sort of strange. It definitely tastes like all the things in the name, which is sort of impressive.

On-tap at Beachwood I,
A: Pours a clear goldenrod with some good lace, light white head.
S: Full ginger which dominates the nose. Pie crust and some Key lime.
T: Sweet Meyer lemon, lemongrass, there is an Thai spice flair to this. Ginger undercurrent, with some pastry like notes, but not a dessert beer.
M: Light-bodied, crisp, very smooth and refreshing.
O: This was a delight to drink and would certainly be a great summer choice if available.

Had on-tap at the taproom in Portland, OR.
Pours a deep golden colour with solid hazing. Weight is quite light, but it holds very fine carbonation. Head is a firm, consistent white that leaves some lace.
Nose is hugely prominent with ginger, leaving a spicy hot afterimage on the olfactory organs. There's some hint of peely lime coming through. It tastes very bright and very robust: it almost seems fake.
Light crisp entry gives ginger spice and a hint of light vinous characters. The ginger continues but the wine drops away, building up a candied sweetness on the mid palate, before a very dry and very crisp and sharp exit leaves a biting brusqueness, and some soda characters. Feel is sparkling and clear.
This is a really bright, refreshing and awesomely drinkable brew. I've never had a better ginger-spiced beer before. Great stuff.

A: Poured transparent and golden with a nice, fluffy white cap and moderate amount of lacing
S: Wow. big ginger and fresh limes all the way. A minor touch of honey and lactic sting
T: Big blend of ginger and lime coupled with a lacto stinging greet you but man is it soft and fresh. A little bit honey hits the palate leaving a unique sticky feel which really contrasts the sourness and zest of the ginger and lime. The finish is nice, crisp and down right tasty
M: Lighter to medium bodied, crisp, well carbonated

Talk about pleasant surprises... on tap at the Parkway Tavern today.
The beer pours a solid gold color with decent head retention and light lacing. The nose is exotic and attractive, showcasing considerable ginger, honey, lime and underlying sour. There's something of a spite and fresca aroma to this beer, but with the light sour acting as a counter component to the soda pop aroma. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, with the sour lime flavor buoying the honey and ginger very nicely. Mouthfeel is fairly light, with a spice filled, light sour finish. Alcohol is really a meaningless concept in this beer... I get no sense of what the abv. is. It could be anywhere from 5% to 8% or 9%, for all I can tell.
Another very nice beer from Cascade.... the only thing that would hold me back from drinking a bunch of this is the $8 per 10 ounce price tag for the beer. Otherwise, this is much too easy to take.

The bar I had this at listed it as "Ginger Lime Honey", but I doubt there are 2 brews from this brewery using those 3 ingredients. Served in tulip. Poured a hazy gold color with 1-1/2 inches of white head that had good retention and moderate lacing.
The aroma was good, it featured all 3 of the named flavors over a mild grain base. The flavors were pretty similar, the graininess of the malt showed through a bit better and for a more solid base for the featured flavors. Lime, Ginger, and Honey (I've met strippers with all three of those names, BTW) all had distinct roles, while melding together nicely.
The body was nice, crisp and dry, and evenly medium. Drinkability was good, I probably wouldn't have more than 2 in a row, but would have this beer multiple days in a row. Your opinion while depend on your taste for the 3 stars of the show. Overall, a very tasty brew from a brewery that's been hit-or-miss for me. A must try if you see it.

T - Sweet honey, tart lime and some ginger on the finish. Very well balanced and all ingredients are present an in full effect.
D - Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice tartness with a sweeter ginger finish.
O - A very nice brew. Sweet and refreshing. Very easy to dink at 7.5.

On tap at the Barrel House yesterday.
Light yellow with a thin, white heady with good retention and lacing. The nose is a blend of honey and ginger brightened up by fresh lime. Plenty of ginger is present. Some lactic sourness is present. Super simple but fantastic. The palate opens with a lime-infused ginger honey herbal tea. Bright, refreshing with honey sweetness in the back, this beer is medium-light in body with a SWEET mid-palate, refreshing and enjoyable. Strongly recommended.

Seal Beach, CA
Clear golden yellow with a somewhat persistent near white head. Marked lacing down the glass.
Smells of lime, ginger, and lemongrass, which is quite good and certainly plenty interesting, seeing as this is a beer. It certainly smells like no other beer I've tried before.
What a bright flavor--tart lemon, earthy ginger, a touch of sweet honey, (lemon)grass--it's quite delicious and most certainly unique. What an exciting creation!
Thin to medium mouthfeel. Plenty of carbonation.
An absolute joy, and yes, it actually tastes like honey, ginger, and lime.
