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.

Small offwhite head. Clear amber body with strong carbonation. Earthy funky barnyard aroma lingonberry and oranges aroma. Dry-sweetish, and faintly acidic, earthy funky barnyard taste with cow dung and salty lingonberry notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy salty chemical lingonberry aftertaste with herbal floral oranges notes. Wow. This is pretty powerful stuff, flavour-wise. Must be brewed with brett. (0.25l bottle, wine monopoly, web order.)

15.03.2015. 0,25l Bottle. Golden orange colour with white head. Horse and stables. Very sour. Harsh. But also fresh and strong. Dry mouthfeel with ripe fruits and grepe seeds. There are some strange flavours here.

7 Mar 2015, bottle. yellow, mostly clear, steady bubbles, rocky head. nose is nice. it is sour at first, but not too much so. sweet granola malt and some spiced notes. thin body and moderately fizzy. the sourness isn’t very prominent, just hints here and there. it reminds me of bramble or dried twigs. moderately sweet

MarcoDL (2561) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle. Wild ale indeed, came gushing out. Aroma is very tardy and sour, with acidic spice. Taste is sharp and harsh, with horseblanket, brett, forrest herbs and a little old grassy hops. Strange beer, interesting though.

Erasmus_ro (1632) - Alabama, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle, BBE 12/03/15. As the cap is cracked, the beer starts to pour out. After some cleaning the beer poured yellowy orange with a small, white head. Aroma is berries, sour, light oak, some balsamic. Taste is red berriness, rowanberry, sour, balsamic vinegar, caramel, lightly sweet. Not that pleasant. Very high carbonation, fairly light. Unpleasant, Feels too old.

anstei (154) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 27, 2015
0.25l bottle at The Local Taphouse. Pours light amber with a medium, quickly dying head. Punchy nose, quite aggressive, but clearly sour. Taste is fresh, crispy carbonization, hints of vinegar at first, well-crafted sourness, surprisingly easy to drink. Dry finish. Good, but a bit too expensive over here.

JorisPPattyn (8202) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2015
Gushing to... no head! over fully hazy orange beer. Sourish wild yeast, (pedio?), barnyard. Sour, lactic, bit spicy, other grains too, wheat. Some citrus. Feels very carbonated. Faint slickness, maybe medium bodied. Seems a bit "forced" on the wild yeast.

Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, nr Gent, Belgie consumed at home Friday 23rd January 2015 Mmhhh. never had buckthorn before and not entirely sure where it is or what it contributes here but its a pleasant enough sour/wild ale. Pours hazy gold a little funky aroma not sure if I get a salty tang. A steady tart/sourness to this, fruity with a little bite and edge to it, moving towards a dry finish. Nice beer.

Not a bad one here shared with McTapps. Sour in its taste with a bit of skunk behind. Some berries in the aroma with raspberry in the dominance. Definitely drinkable and refreshing. Nice one.
