color me among the skeptics when it comes to ginger in beer, especially in our beer, where it always seems to be paired with so many other things, fruits, spices, barrels, whatever, but this is one of the best i have had, and it has to do with the ginger being super authentic, fresh, spicy, without a juiced intensity or a candied sweetness, this is the best of the prairie anniversary beers i have had, and a great ginger wild beer, as funky as it is sour without a doubt, brett and bugs together, wonderfully refreshing and drinkable for what it is. hazy pale straw colored, looks like so many other wild beers these days, nothing remarkable there, although its not mucky, and its lively in the bubbles and head. spicy fresh ginger in the aroma, but not overdosed and nostril burning like some can be, plenty of fruity funky yeast to balance, and a somewhat substantial grain complexion too, which i think both unites with, and settles the ginger a bit. perhaps a light dry hop in the nose? a bit of citrus there, making my mouth water together with the obvious acidity. ginger is great in the flavor, forward, but not runaway, and really well balanced with the other elements. a cleaner bacterial sour here too than i am used to from prairie, still with the wild funk element as well, subtle lemon, shaved ginger root, genuine, champagne notes, hay, light clean oak. excited carbonation and a drier conclusion, this is awesome beer, great to have it on draft too, a nice format for this one, and some of the better ginger spiked beer in the market.

From Degustasur. In Teku glass. Playing Custome Quest 2. Lemony, with ginger and sour notes combined in not excessively strong fashion at first but becoming overwhelming as warms up
