3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(330ml bottle @ Mikkeller Bar Stockholm, Nov 16 2014) Pours a slightly murky deep gold with a decent bubbly white head, spotty lace. Aroma quite funky with a little sour lemony acidity, berry notes giving a little sweetness underneath that funk, just a little wood too, brisk. Flavour mixes some light sweetness from malts and sea buckthorn with the buckthornís tart qualities, lemony sourness, a reasonable helping of Brett horseblanket funk, blending into a dry/sour finish with lots of buckthorn berry, lingering funk as well. Medium body with average, fairly active carb. Cool use of sea buckthorn for sure, its kind of "odd" berry character proved a star of a nicely sour/tart/funky lambic and seems to make it more drinkable than Iíd have expected. Interesting, nice too.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle to wine glass at Mikkeller Bar in SF. Looks good; a semi-transparent fuller orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; funky with a uniquely pleasant semi-sweet fruity presence. Tastes like it smells, only more sour, with a nice tart medium-bodied mouthfeel. Notes of citrus. One of the better Spontan varietals Iíve had to date.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Warm golden colour, white head. Aroma of cherry, berries, peach. Bitter flavour, buckthorn, berries and yoghurt. Quite astringent. Finish wood and seabuckthorn juice. Was quite curious to it, but to me seabuckthorns taste more healthy than nicely flavoured. Still, not bad..

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. An unclear, golden-orange beer topped by a dense, light beige head. The funky aroma has a strange almost puke-like berry touch, with some lemon notes. Itís medium bodied and soft on the palate, with a nice carbonation level, quite tart. Lemony, citrusy flavor with a little sweet touch in the back. Not sure about this one, itís sort of good, yet not. 141018
