3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Thick looking in the glass but very very murky and cloudy. Thin dribble of a head with an aroma that is a cross between earthiness and fruitiness. Quite lively in the mouth with a dry aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught @ Beer Temple.
Pours orange-yellow and very hazy. Little foam.
Nose is modest berry fruits, but this is silence before the storm.
This baby explodes in your mouth with light yeast, STRONG hard dry hops and hints of berries. Modest ABV. Only gripe is palate is a bit flat and left for dead after drinking, but with such hops that is to be expected.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 10C on a hot night. Hazy verging on soupy gold with a loose white head that fades to a coat. Aroma of sharp grapefruit mingled with pepper and juniper. An odd orange/ berry/ iodine note that’s not that prominent is presumably the seabuckthorn.Taste has oranges, grapefruit, berries, juniper, pepper. Bitter finish with citrus and lingering spices. Interesting, invigorating.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange with white head. Aroma has lots of dusty orange, slightly sharp like blood orange. Taste of sharp orange, not much else going on actually, it’s pretty much fizzy orange juice which is good. Crisp and well measured bitterness. I could drink this all day, very refreshing

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky orange with a nice foamy head. Aromas of flowery hops, fruits, buckthorn (?) and something i can’t get a hold of, birch or something. Hoppy bitter taste, medium carbonation. Even more bitter in the end.
Pretty cool, something different. Still lacks the final touch though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours murky dark orange with small off-white head. Aroma is quite hoppy and fairly heavy with resin, peach, seabuckthorn, bread, herbal notes, and some juniper. Taste is medium sweet and medium+ bitter. Body is medium , texture is oily, carbonation is soft+. Finishes very bitter with a long bitter burn.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2013 Tap. Murky seabuckthorn orange with a thick, good lasting, nicely lacing off white head. Actually I’m fascinated by how it looks. When I look around the bar it’s easy to tell who is having a Baltic Frontier because it looks so different. Though it may not be pretty by ’what beer should look like’ standards, I’t doesn’t look like anything I’ve seen before. Looks like unfiltered apple juice only more dense, but then it has this fine white head that tells I’ts a beer. The appearance builds up some curiosity as to how this tastes. Will it be crazy or disgusting? Neither. Nice and fresh. Aroma is peach, fresh resin, orange, bready malt, berries. I am not too familiar with the flavor of seabuckthorn, so I can’t tell to which extent it is present. I am however familiar with the taste of juniper, which I can’t pinpoint. Taste is medium sweet and medium+ bitter. Medium body, oily texture, light/medium carbonation. Really long dry heavy bitter finish. Seabuckthorn is full of vitamins. Baltic Frontier should be a part of your staple diet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small bottle. Cloudy orange body with a medium bubbly head. Fruity aroma with piney hops. Dry taste with medium to little fruitiness. After reading that it’s "beaten" with sea-buckthorn I kind of expected this beer to be acidic like seaberries but it’s not. Instead it’s dry and grapefruity like some other To Øl IPAs. Sessionable - yes, but with more berries it could have been more special.
