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.

Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Fresh aroma of berries, leather, citrus peel and barnyard. Some lightly spiced hints. Peppery. Oily mouthfeel, dry and pleasantly carbonated. Mild, berry flavor with a peppery hint, citrus notes and even more berries. Lasting finish with berries and some peppery hints. Sure not the most extreme sour beer I’ve had, but it’s easy drinkable and tasteful. Really pleasant to drink. 130304

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.

McTapps (4754) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle from Meilby - thank you, Kenni! The beer has got a hazy light amber colour with an explosive body and steady low head. Aroma of old bread and acid. Taste of unpleasant acidity, green bread, dust, basement and rotten fruits. Didn’t enjoy it.

Gurthnar (2275) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle from Bottle Park. Wheat noticeable in the aroma, otherwise brett, hay, horse blanket. Gusher. Relatively clean golden to orange colour when poured without sediment. Poor head. TAste follows the established direction, bretty wheat with a horsey hay element. Enjoyable, but no stunner.

Svesse (6506) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2015
(Bottle) Pale golden amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, sour nose with brett yeast, sea buckthorn, cloud-berries, hay, earth and barnyard. Fruity, sourish taste with notes of tart berries, sea buckthorn, cloud-berries, spicy yeast, hay, unripe grapes and a dry, tart finish. Medium body, quite dry. Sour and fresh with a lots of berry character. Nice one.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2014 Color anaranjado levemente gasificación. Una espuma suave, blanco que no dura mucho pero deja un lindo encaje. Levemente ácida muy refrescante a pesar de sus 7° y sabor muy persistente

sulawang (656) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Visual: Pours golden marmalade orange with a beautiful ultra-creamy lasting head, super sticky lacing, lots of tiny bubbled active streams. Nose: huge barnyard fruity apricot sourness. (lvl-10)-pungency Attack: creamy mouthfeel, immediate sourness Mid-palate: (lvl-1)-sweetness, huge sourness-tangy, tart, (MAIN) wheat malt, apricot, barnyard, woody Finish: more funk, very dry, soft-bitter hopped finish. Summary: Intense barnyard with bold dry sourness and a fruity apricot-wheat malt profile. It’s a decent combo but not something that I particularly loved or found to be awesome. Still it’s a quality brew that I’m sure fans of sours would appreciate.

8.5 FL OZ ($7.99) This was a treat, had a very unique flavor, closest I could say is a partially sour beer with martini olive flavor. I’d drink again. Bottle is mega small. but I could see this being a nice treat and not a get drunk on beer.

Gerbeer (2041) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
250 ml bottle. Gusher. Pours a light copper color with huge head. Aromas of barnyard/brett, old fruit/berries, and old socks. Flavors are brett and gooseberry like fruit. Sharp. OK once, but would not buy again. 1
