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.

Le croisement entre une blonde très très bonne et un magasin bio et tenue par des prof à la retraite vêtue de nippes en chanvre commerce équitable. bref une blonde très cool avec des arôme étranges.

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 (6608) - 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 (1494) - 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!

olsvammel (4686) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle at a big tasting (Nördprovning 2015). Fruity smell with sea-bucktorn. Lightly tart taste, fresh and fruity. Refreshing, low carbonation, light body. Easy to drink.

AgentAle (1236) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
Aroma is sweet floral notes like juniper, buckthorn and other wild berries. Slight clove and sulphur notes on the tip. Taste is sweet malts, a whole mouth full of a variety of bitter vine stalk and sweet berries. Clove and slight lemon grass, citrus and yeast. Appearance is a hazy gold with medium chunks in suspension. The fluffy pearl head retains quite well. Quite complex but finished surprisingly smoothly.
