oRos (1326) - sacramento, California, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Taste at mikkeller bar sf. Pours orange with tan head. This beer is extremely tart. Has a big mouth puckering tartness. Awesome if you like extremely sour.

beer-yum (777) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 30, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2015 Standard sour aroma in a golden amber pour. I have no idea what a buckthorn tastes like - let alone the ’sea’ version. But this is damned nice. Has a hint of ’wood’ without it being pervasive.

mfrato (107) - - MAY 30, 2015
Pours a tawny gold with minimal lacing. Aroma is tart with a hint of brine, definitely can tell this is a sour. Flavor is wow, ho-boy is this a sour. Excellent beer, hard to describe honestly. Very good though

thirdeye11 (5746) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2015
(Draught) cloudy deep orange with fine white bubbles. Nose of tart blood orange, tart berry, wheat, interesting. Taste of tart blood orange, so tart at times (without the vinegar associated with some) it’s nearly bitter, wheat, pulp of citrus, really refreshing in small quantities, great tart linger, juicy citrus fruit.

SinH4 (767) - SWITZERLAND - APR 27, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2015 Hazy yellow color with small white head. Salty salami smell, sour as well. Funny. Taste is refreshing, dry, sour. Lacks balance. Not the best of Mikkeller?s spontan series. EDIT: decanted and when the keg is not completely new, it’s much better. No salami anymore, great funk, heavy sourness, but awesome!

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours cloudy dark orange with almost no head. Nose is very sour, salt, strange fruits or berries. Taste is sour, salty, very sour, that same berry again, seabuckthorn?
