KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle from the brewery. Very fresh and fruity aroma. Clear gold. Sweet and sour, the berries echo apples, peaches and cloudberries, then a very likeable edge of sourness. An aperitif, perhaps with cured or smoked salmon? Cider-like sourness. Not wxtreme, but now bow to the mainstream, either.

Bottled, thanks KnutAlbert! Hazy golden, small head. Vinous buckthorn aroma with floral (lily of the valley) notes. Slender and fresh, somewhat fruity with elegant dryness. Notes of white wine and lemon zest. Low bitterness. Very impressive!

Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Gyllen oransje farge med skumrand, frisk syrlig smak.Har ikke peiling på hva tindved er før nå. Smaker malt,gjær,sitrus,hvitvin og åpenbart tindved. En veldig frisk og syrlig øl. Veldig god

Cuso (4264) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 21, 2013
Bottle, many thanks to OleR. Hazy orange yellow color with thick long lasting white head. Aroma of sweet malt, sea-bucktorn, honey, jam. Taste starts malty sweet, continues with tart berries. Dry tart finish. For me very unusual, but definitely tasty beer.

Foffern (1168) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle at home. Has a hazy straw colour with a huge creamy off-white head. Interesting aroma of forest, cheese, heather, forest berries and especially "krøkkebær" and sea-buckhorn I guess. Nice, and very Norwegian. The flavours is much alike and has a lot of heather and wild berries, and is slightly sweet. Has a slightly acidic and green apple touch in the end. The mouth feel is slick and rich, and has a light bitterness. What a beer. Totally one of a kind, and worth a taste!

Bottle, february 9th 2013. Hazy golden body, white head, high carbonation. Before drinking this beer I haven’t the faintest idea what sea-buckthorn is, looks like (though I guess the label gives it away) or taste like so this should be fun! Aroma of berries, apples, yeast, grapefruit. Very different and very nice, as is the taste. Light acidic berries with peach, wood, caramel, herbs, also some forestish taste. Refreshing fruity and dry aftertaste.

Vignale (1994) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2013
Flaska från BW Köpenhamn. Bärnstensfärgad, lätt disig, mycket små stigande bubblor, cm-tjock skumpuck. Syrlig, frisk, jästig doft som påminner om en klassisk saison. Även smaken är saisonliknande, en liten bärig sträv beska, havtorn, mineraler, frisk, syrlig. Riktigt god, men det kunde varit mer havtornssmak.
