Pours haze golden colour with practically no head. Visually medium carbonation. Aroma without notice of an alcohol, with hints of coriander and some other spices (Ginger I didn t detected). Flavor: Taste is firstly mild sweet, but immidiatey prevails notes of stale or vapid grass/herbs. Finish is also strange, undetermine, somehow watery, with aftertaste of stale. For sure the worst brew from Pelicon and unproper for its style.

A nice summer ale. Pours a bright sunny yellow. Aromas are herbal and grassy...notes of coriander...maybe a bit of ginger. Not too bitter. Good stuff.

nimbleprop (7096) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2015
50cl bottle in Ljub pours a very murky gold with some thin, white head. Nose has a ton of ginger and coriander, lemon-lime soda, straw, some dust. Flavor follows, all ginger and spice, coriander and white pepper, even a little tumeric, some straw, mild grist. Spicy finish. The level of carbonation was distracting.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange, large of white head, dissipates fairly quickly, good lacing. Aroma is spices, wheat, coriander, ginger, hay, floral, pepper. Flavor follows, kind of a mix between a Saison and a wit, light sweet, light plus bitter. Medium body, high carbonation. Nice.

ogivlado (7064) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 29, 2015
On tap at Ljubljanski Festival Piva 2015. Cloudy orange coloured, small white head, ginger and coriander in the nose. Coriander, ginger, fruits and mild hoppy with light bitterness in the finish. Not bad for a summer beer but too much spices for my taste.

Had it at Ljubljana beer festival 2015. Almost a witbier characteristics. Yellowish body with white firm head. Nice fruity notes, a lot of coriander. Depends if you like this herb or not. Nice balanced fruity and refreshing taste. Ginger is well infused and balanced. Spicy aftertaste. Nice!
