Gold in color with excellent clarity. The small amount of white head dissipates quickly and only covers half of the top. Aroma is solely of ginger which is a bit simple. It tastes very briefly like a pilsner flavored with ginger. The mouth is initially watery and then you actually get a highly carbonated gentle warming in your throat. This is beer meets ginger ale with a little burn in the fade. Odd.

not much overt ginger flavor, but definitely gets spicier as it warms up.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (from notes when I had it on 2/10/15)

A: Beautiful golden blonde with no lacing or collar.
S: Kind of like a farmhouse saison. A bit funky. Some caramel/toffee in there with ginger underneath it all.
T: Weird ginger taste that might come from the fermentation or how they added the ginger to it. Almost astringent but not like your normal ginger. A definite sipper.
M: Strong and sharp carbonation.
O: I'm a huge fan of ginger in all its forms: beer, soda, tea, syrup, or candy. reminds me of another beer that I can't really place at the moment. Glad it is strong and flavored and not mild/bland with just a bit of ginger.

Highly spicy and overly sweet. Lacks the crisp finish I was desiring. Has a warm burning sensation on the lips and mouth tissues from the spices. Subtly is the key and this beer does not have it.
