UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Bottle from Gambrinus, Tartu. Strong pine aroma, rather hoppy.. Orange, cloudy, medium carbonation. Sea-buckthorn gives that color, and juniper gives specific "pine" aroma. Full bodied beer, creamy, thick texture. This is quite interesting brew. I have not tried similar combination before. If you drink sea-buckthorn juice, than you will find plenty of that in this beer. As for juniper - In case of this beer I possibly would doubled the concentration for next brews. If you see the bottle of it somewhere - get it. Update 16.02.14 - I think it is the third batch, that hit the taps. Much better than 2nd one, and as amazing as first one. Fill a bit thicker this time.

Bottle@Home Apperance: Hazy yellow with a small, white, head. Aroma: Berries, Hops, Hint of citrus. Taste: Caramel, Peach, Citric notes, Berries, Hint of pine. Palate: Fruit with lots of bitterness. Ends dry. After hearing my friends raving about this one on draught i had high hopes for this beer but i feel i was kind of let down. A tasty ipa but i feel something is missing.

sunevdj (3120) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours a very hazy golden with an off-white head. Smells of hops with tiny toothpaste hints. Sweet and quite bitter. Lots of hoppy aromas, especially centennial. Also spicy aromas of mint and black pepper. Medium to full bodied. Medium to soft carbonation. Long, dry, peppery finish with some residual sugars and hints of mints. Good stuff!

lortsker (332) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle pours opaque murky amber deep yellow. With bits of sea buckthorn floating around. Frothy quickly disappearing head. Aroma: really fresh hoppy aroma with notes of spruce, grass, exotic fruits, sweet malts and some spicy notes. Flavours follows through. But the juniper berries are quite dominant. Lovely fruitiness, and ends dry with a long lasting lingering bitterness. Fun and new Nordic experiment.

JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2012
Opaque very hazy golden, small white head, nice lacings. Peculiar but nice fruity, spicy aroma of citrusy, slightly grassy hops and - very evident - seabuckthorn. Medium sweet, very fresh citric fruity, warm glow, vitamin c. Fresh hoppy and fruity bitter finish, some of which might come from the juniper berries.

Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2012
330ml bottle. To such an extent hazy, yellowish golden colour with average frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lasting, white head. Slightly herbal hoppy aroma with a touch of mint and uniquely intense, basic, fruity notes of mango, herbal hoppy overtones. Taste is initially herbal, in between with a balance of mango and herbs, later slightly citrusy and herbal, piney spicy.

suurjuust (959) - ESTONIA - NOV 28, 2012
Very hazy orange tinted yellow, big fluffy white head with filmy retention. Nose is grassy-spicy hops, caramel, sea-buckthorn, malt. Taste is malt, some toffee hints, the finish is dry, spicy, hoppy, with slight sourness in the background. The aftertaste is medicinally (but not in a bad way) bitter and hoppy with distinct juniper notes. Medium body, flat to medium carbonation. Nicely rounded.
