3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet fruity, somewhat citrusy aroma. Hazy ornange white head. Nice refreshing citrusy taste that feels just a little bit tart. Bitterness is there just enough to give balance but does not take attention from the fruitiness. Malty sweetness is there as well. Medium body, creamy texture. It is very nice but it feels like you really need to compliment it with food, you get a feeling of lacking something

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml brown bottle, pours opaque orange with a small white head, that reduced quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of sea-buckthorn, lemons, oranges and a hint of pineapple. Flavour of sea-buckthorn, grapefruit, lemons, oranges, pineapple and wheat bread. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. An interesting unique brew, sea-buckthorn is dominating the flavour, pleasant at first but becomes a bit too much by the time you finished the bottle.

Ljusgul grumlig med litet skum som försvinner snabbt. Citrus och humlig i både doft och smak! Ganska besk men bättre än väntat!
