Had it on tap at the Ginger Man in NYC a while back and thought it had OK taste with the ginger not adding a nice finish to it; I appreciate using ginger since it's in the name of the joint, but this is not a beer I'd have again.

On tap at the Ginger Man in NYC, in a nonic pint glass.

A- Poured a dirty orange color. Not clear or hazy, dirty. The minimal at best white head disappeared quickly. No lacing.

S- Some hint of ginger and malt, call it mild gingerbread. There was no hint whatsoever of any Belgian style in the nose. Maybe a little raisin.

T- Talc malts and breads with some spice and ginger.

M- Bordering on offensive. No carbonation.

O- At length, I try to avoid killing a beer. This beer almost killed me and my wife, figuratively speaking. We did not get it at all.
