Tindved er et syrlig norsk øl brygget på norsk byggmalt og norsk hvete. Det er tilsatt saft fra pressede tindvedfrukter for å gi den gode friskheten. Dette er et ufiltrert og upasteurisert øl. Skjenk derfor forsiktig i glasset slik at sedimentene i bunnen flasken kan ligge uforstyrret.

Tindved is a sour Norwegian ale brewed with Norwegian malted barley and raw wheat. We added juice from pressed sea buckthorn to obtain the brash sourness. Nøgne Ø ales are unfiltered and unpasteurized so pour carefully if you want to leave the natural yeast in the bottom of the bottle.

Pours hazy amber with low white head. Nose is hay, barnyard, apples, sour grapes, bretta. Taste is a light sour that gives in to a slightly sweet bretta finish. Mouthfeel is light, sticky with average carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(bottle - 330 ml) Hazy orange with a puffy white head. Huge sour and dank aroma with a bit of rye dryness. Flavor is nice and sour with some light fruit, maybe the buckthorn but I have no idea what that is, and a dry rye finish with some lingering sourness. [9/8/15]

Aroma of apple, cider, vinegar and some wood which I guess is oak from the casks. Not super sour by any means to taste but quite dry and also some apple and cider on the tongue.

Bottle on board Fridtjofen 02.08.15. Clody, pale orange. Diminishing, off-white head. Fruity aroma, with brett and ammonia. Similar taste, with moderate acidity. Well-balanced. Long and tarty aftertaste,

250ml bottle from Vinmonopolet - aroma is sour with a fruity tang to it. It’s probably the sea buckthorn, but i get tons of stonefruit and wild aromas from this beer. Great aroma, really! Flavor-wise this beer has plenty to offer. A nice bready malt with this stonefruit-y flavor. Never tried sea buckthorn berries, but if this is what it tastes like, nøgne ø has hit a home run. Tastes great. Slightly sour and very refreshing.

Idiosynkrasie (5175) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2015
250ml bottle [petty gusher]. Murky golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Complex, spicy, sourish aroma, notes of leather, shoe polish, peat, mustard, white wine, grapes, buckthorn, pickles, a herbal touch, hints of smoke. Taste is slightly leathery smoky, hints of peat, fruity overtones, buckthorn, overripe pear, a sweet-ish herbal touch, white wine, grapes. Quite complex, very interesting (used with positive connotation here), thereby almost easy drinkable.

Great beer which I have had stored in my basement for almost a year now. The brett med it burst out of the bottle when I openend it. Fruity aroma and a pleasant mild guezeish taste. This is a really nice beer.

Kadyfornia (6) - POLAND - JUL 17, 2015 does not count
Appearence: clear, with ample, stable white head. Aroma: a mix f fruity hops and malt, no funk to speak of. Taste: That was a disappointment - dominated by diacetyl, with a hint acetone in the background, partly redeemed by mild, pleasant bitterness. Mouthfeel: Way too full for my taste -and for the style. Probably a proof that wild fermentatin does not always go the same way. Althpugh a few more monthsin the tank would probably allow the brett to finish their job and really help this beer.

Gusher! Hazy orange beer with a big white head. Smell is acid, lactid acid, brettish, smoke. Taste is lactic acid, brettish, dry, youghurt, rotten fruits. Aftertaste is smoke, sourness, Brussel sprouts, dry, yeast. Totally out of balance. Smell was ok, but taste was just horrible.
