33cl bottle. Pleasant looking hazy golden. Aroma is a rude wet clothe taken from a sink that has been fermenting 1 day near a coriander garden in southern greece. Taste is as if someone would have grated some lemon cest. Nice.

Hana @ SOPP Tampere. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, todella muhkealla vaahdolla, joka jättää vahvaa pitsiä. Tuoksu on mausteisen belgihiivainen, yrttinen, sitruksinen ja äärimmäisen raikas. Maku on enemmänkin sitrusmaisen hiivainen, myös jonkin verran yrttisyyttä, etenkin inkivääriä ja korianteria on mukana. Suutuntuma on melko hiilihappoinen ja raikas sekä mukavan kepeä. Hieno kesäolut, kevyt ja raikas, mutta makuakin löytyy. Helteille passeli kaveri.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 Bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a quite big frothy white head. Aroma has an interesting combination of berries such as cherry and currant and spices; coriander and ginger appear, ginger fortunately not too much. Taste is dryish and surprisingly rich in flavour; the strong presence of berries is countered by fresh fruitiness, apple especially, and moderate spiciness. Sometimes these kind of beers go over the top in spiciness, especially with ginger, but the balance in this one is excellently kept. The palate is light, slick and moderately carbonated. Surprisingly varied, given the low abv. A great summer ale: fresh and very original, in a good way.

Can’t say that I enjoyed this so much. Has really nice strong aroma which made me expect more, with citrus, yeast and herbs... and urine.The flavour is sour and spiced, the ginger is quite mild and I can’t find corriander. The sourness is too much for me in this combination, or maybe it is the herbs. It has distinct strong taste, so at least it isn’t just plain boring but maybe the spiced beer isn’t for me.
