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.)

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. This is a very sour beer in a good way. Fills the mouth with a mouth puckering tartness.

kappldav123 (4927) - GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts quite sourish, malty, fruity notes of grapefruit. Finish earthy-sourish. Okay.

on tap at braukunst live 2014. pale golden with a lingering white head; typically scandinavian clean funk character - woody brett aroma, white grape tang, balanced; much more a product of design than accident

Pours gold into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Sour berry and marshmallow aromas. Soft with sweet summer fruit and funk front to back. Lasting marshmallow finish.

250ml bottle at home, thanks Jan! Hazy golden color with nice almost white head. Aroma is funky, fruity with orange and peach among others, also "sweet" caramel malty. Taste is funky - sour, citruisy and there is also some wood. Light to medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, light bitter, sour and dry finish.

On tap @Solobirra, Monza. Small/medium dense head with good duration; dark orange/golden colour, not fully clear. Quite pungent, really nice, aroma: flowers (rose notes), wild yeasts, sea salt, barnyard, and a bit fruity(berries). Taste it’s on the smell way: initially a bit fruity and sweet, then the saltiness and tartness come out. Fruity, zesty, savoury, yeasty, spicy, with a minimum hop presence (if any..), in a word "oceanic" (maybe from the sea buckthorn(?)mentioned in the description). Average carbonation, medium bodied, slick and fizzy texture. Really tasteful, refreshing and quite complex beer. Overall a high/medium sourness I would say and with a pleasent bit dry finish. Really enjoyed this, I would expected some better ratings/ comments, a bit underrated in my opinion. The draught version seemed really nice & fresh, I’ll get a bottle for sure. This would go just Perfectly with some SeaFood ; )

Bottle. Vibrant amber looking amber beer with a strong frothy white head. The aroma is sour with some spice, and the flavour is gently sour and yeasty with some spicy and dryness at the finish. Overall it's a sour beer, I'm not too much for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark murky brown pour, very small beige head. Very fruity nose, lots of stone fruit, some pears and apples, and some orange candies. Malts are also very fruity, and this isnt very sour, but i would say its tart. Just enough.....the finish is light on the bitternss, the tartness never leaves. The malts are still quite sweet, there are not hops to speak of, and the fruitiness fades but remains predominant.
