3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Za Popen’t. Poured a murky orange/ochre body. Citric aroma, sweet, dough, coriander. Coriander dominates the relatively soft body, mild hop, light bitterness, light tartness. Ok, but hardly thrilling and underwhelming compared with their other two beers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very hazy yellow color, topped with a small white head.
There is a quite strong spicey aroma, some yeasty smell as well.
The taste is not too strong, some ginger can be easily felt as well as some other spiecs (coriander). Bittery finish.
Not a fan of spice beers, but this one is very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Sir William’s Pub, Ljubljana. Dry and very spicy beer, with coriander and ginger upfront and more subtle notes of citrus and white grapes. All merges into something that might resemble ginger tea that is light to medium bitter. Very nice beer, though I really don’t know what is particularly summery about this kind of seasoning.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at 2. festival mikro pivovarjev (Cameral Bar, Koper). Hazy golden amber color with thin creamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma of ginger, corriander and floral hops. Tastes refreshing fruity with light maltiness, decent spicy notes and medium bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Pretty decent summer ale, although it could have a bit bolder palate...
