33 cl. bottle split @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. An American style IPA brewed with sea buckthorn and juniper berries, playing in on the current Danish culinary fascination with foraging & the booming Baltic market for craft beer. Rather curious about this because of the sea buckthorn which I have never tasted but I am a) always greatly interested in beers with unusual ingredients & b) Cantillon once made a bear with sea buckthorn. It took me a while to figure out what precisely the cover was supposed to portray, from a distance I initially thought that it was supposed to be an art-deco-esque image of thorn paper but up-close it is a clearly birch tree, a highly culturally ingrained & common + very beautiful tree, common in that part of Europe. It pours a bright opaque cartoon / children vitamins orange, actually the colour strongly reminds me of persimmon’s, the head doesn’t stick around for long, its white and strongly resembles dishwashing liquid foam in on washing water. The smell is very sweet and strongly fruity, soft tangerines, lots of nectar, flowers, fruitiest American hops, soft mango & light exotic fruits. Taste is sweet apricot, tangerine & mango juice blended with sweet children’s aspirin & vitamins, orange flavoured, slight tang, very “other” / new fruits for me, must be the sea buckthorn, I though it was going to be a slight, maybe it is there, maybe it isn’t type of addition but this is hugely in your face, totally dominating, very special. I can totally see people getting turned off by this, this tastes like something that Freigheist would make, if you know what that means. Also picking up lemon peel and flowers in here, finish carries some floral bitterness but quite light with that aspirin / vitamin tang, some sweet candy also in the back and light herbs. Feels fuller and flatter body-wise. Seriously special stuff, took some getting in, that is one hell of a particular fruit but proof that fruit beers can be challenging and interesting and not just terrible alcopop’s where you can taste the artificial sweeteners. Fruit beers is unquestionably a style that I would like craft brewers to explore further.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 Bottle @ Il pretesto. It pours hazy orange with a good white head on top. Aroma is orange/fruity and baltic berries. Taste is bitter and sour due by berries and hops. Very good ipa with an interesting fruity sourness.

toffeeslot (118) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 10, 2012
Cloudy, hazy orange. Small, but tightly packed white head. Aroma is woody, with notes of spice, clove, orange, grapefruit, gin. Taste is hoppy, followed by a long bitter dryness. Sea buckthorn is at the front, juniper at the back. Nice mouthfeel, which dries the mouth, making it a very morish beer. Very good.

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 from Mane Liquor. Pours a hazy, golden orange with a thin white head. Heavy citrus and pine needle notes on the nose. Taste is fantastic - big grapefruit hop kick with a lingering sweetness from the juniper berries. Rich mouthfeel with a lovely resinous finish on the palate. A delicious and interesting IPA that I will endeavour to drink again.
