A medium body and moderate bitterness with refreshing hints of ginger and coriander. An unconventional ale. Best enjoyed under a palm tree.

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!

Pours with medium head. A very pleasant atoma. Refreshing. Citrusy notes follow the firstly ale-flavour. Low bitterness and very tastefull. One of Slovenia’s best.

Cloudy orange color, no head. Aroma is orange, coriander, some rooty feel. Hints of ginger. Grassy bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation. Spicy as hell.

Marko (4263) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 21, 2014
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.

MarkoNm (1298) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 2, 2014
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.

ElDesmadre (2218) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 25, 2014
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.
