jkwood04 (3950) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap in a tulip. Pours hazy golden/amber with a lacy, white head. Aroma of fruits, some sour and funky notes, a little pale and caramel malts, and light spices. Flavor the same with a good sourness and fruitiness. Average texture. A pretty good sour.

tom10101 (2781) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle (375 ml). Hazy/murky orange with a low mostly lasting off-white head. Aroma is really special with a salty presence, citric notes, funk and light wood. Taste is way more citric (so citric that the first sip is really surprising) along with funk, wood and, again (but less) salty notes. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Citric - mouth puckering. Dry finish. Not as easily drinkable as others from the series because is really citric, but still enjoyable. Unique and fun!

mcberko (6456) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
375mL bottle, pours an opaque murky orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out weird notes of seaweed, salt, and funk - very bizarre, but somehow pleasant. Flavour is totally different, bringing out loads of intensely citrus notes, some seaweed, vegetal notes, and barnyard funk. Very unusual flavour profile - I never knew what sea buckthorn was until searching it up before drinking this. Only Mikkeller would think of brewing a lambic with this ingredient, and it somehow works cohesively. Finishes on notes of citrus, acid and seaweed. Great stuff.

olio (6194) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2013
375 ml bottle.
Pours cloudy orange color with a minimal head. Aroma is fruity, some gooseberry bush, rose hip, mild yeast notes and some wood also. Flavor is nice and sour with citric fruits, rowan berries, some faint apricot notes, gooseberries and yeast too, canít really locate the seabuckthorn underneath. Some Granny Smith -like green apples on the long finish. Very tangy sour palate, nice.

popery (1419) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Pours a deep orange-gold. Quiet cloudy. Small to medium head, just a shade or two off of white. The aroma is a bit messy, but thereís also some fun stuff in there. Thereís a light off note, kind of a sour buttery, cheesy quality. Thereís a bit too much harsh vinegar acidity. Otherwise, thereís some good funk and a light lactic note. I have no clue what sea buckthorn tastes like. Iím guessing that it has a healthy sour tang to it. It smells a bit like an underripe berry crossed with an underripe apricot. The taste is similar. The acidity is a touch harsh. The fruit is interesting, but it doesnít soften (probably heightens it, really) the beerís pucker. Very sour. Thereís an odd saltiness, more unexpected than unwelcome. Green apples, lemons, sour grapes. Mouthfeel is bracing. Lots of pucker. Normal carbonation. Overall, itís just ok. Perhaps, Iím not a big fan of sea buckthorn, but the fruit doesnít really draw me in overmuch. More importantly, itís just too dominated by vinegar acidity. Still, itís interesting and enjoyable enough.

saxo (14044) - HÝjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2013
Tap @ Mikkeller, Stefansgade. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are rich sour brett, lactose acid, little vinegar, malt, fruits and hops. Little astringent. Nice!

RexTalionis (2437) - FINLAND - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle 37,5 cl, BBE 2023. Pours hazy orange in color with a small off-white bubbly head. A bit of stable, wild garden fruityness in aroma. Sour and funky, this is just so good to sniff on. Citrus tartness, wild sour berries and biting sour salty notes in taste. Refreshing. Barnyard, tart but yet somehow there appears some sweet and fresh notes of apples with a salty touch in finish.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Sour and lemony aroma. Lemon and sour flavor with light yeast and pithy grapefruit. Medium bodied. Pithy grapefruit lingers with lemon, sour notes, and light earth.

thornecb (4402) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Pours deep hazy apple cider into a tulip. White head bubbles rim. Salty funk aromas. Huh? Iíve never had Seabuckthorn before and it is funky. Thin with salty sharp soft cheese upfront turning to a dry, tart lychee-like middle before the medium length earthy funk finish.
