3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at ESBLS. Green bottle that had been found in the mix a six section. The aroma and flavor brought that out. This was so tart! Bitter tartness dominated. Some fruit and soft malts. But that tartness. And green bottle effects.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at home. Murky orange with off white head. Lots of sour fruits, apricot, gooseberries, kumquats, Inca berries, hay, funk, fresh cut wood, grass, berry pits. Strong sour and bitter, almost on the verge of being obnoxious. Medium bodied with slight fizzy carbonation. Bit too bitter for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Has a cloudy, dark orange color with a beige head. Sour aroma of vinegar, rowan berries, apple juice, forest floor, earth and oak. The flavor is similar but with more citric acid, red currants and lemon. Very sour. Has a medium body, slick mouth feel, and a heavy berry bitterness. A pretty sour lambic andt the seabuckthorn doesn’t shine through, and feels quite close to a gueuze. Great lambic anyway.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle. Hazy brownish orange. Few fingers of head. Aroma is wild barnyard type notes, quite musty, old, straw, baking bread. Taste is on the juicy side. Not too dry and oaky, but nicely sour. The fruit doesn’t stand out for me but then I’m not familiar with sea buckthorn. Enjoyable.
