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.

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.

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

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

Draught at Mikkeller&Friends. Cloudy orange, little head, sour notes, orange zest in the aroma - REALLY sour flavour, citrus fruit notes around the edges, decent body on this, low carbonation, robust mouthfeel and long, really sour finish, great stuff altogether
