Bottle. Herbal-floral, subtle honeyish aroma. Medium body, strong bitterness and an unexpected (herbal?) tartness in the flavour. Tasty. Jorn69 (3152) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2015

bastarda (502) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2015
very foamy for an IPA, minerals, seaweed, seabuckthorn, a tiny hint of juniper berries in the nose. Very mineral/seaweedy nose in fact, rather disgustingly so. But, as murky as this beaten puppy is, there lies some hidden beauty in that massive overload of unsweetened seabuckthorn juice out-of-the-reformhaus flavour that mingles so gracefully with those well-chosen hops, with that grapefruit-peel bitter finish that could be mistaken for just due to the juice but in fact must come from the hops. And without having had another bottle I can surely say I’d eventually come to love that strange brew. Stuu666 (13390) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours hazy amber, nose is fruity orange, taste is sweet, salty, cheesy, fruity.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; murky dark amber pour with a big fluffy off white head, aroma has minerals and underlying hops, taste has lime, salt, caramel, never had sea buckthorn, but had a few beers with it and it’s an interesting taste. I enjoyed this. Vestergaard (2089) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2015
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a murky amber with a big, long lasting, soapy, off white head. Aroma is partly hoppy with some skunky, grassy notes, and partly fruity with sour, prominent sea-buckthorn. Only hints of the juniper berries though. Taste is much more radical sour, and the hoppy bitterness is very weak. The sour notes are very wooden and dry, and could easily be confused with a wild yeast sourness. Body is still pretty round though with medium carbonation. Camons (12440) - Hasselager, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2015
Draught @ Fermentoren, Århus. Pours hazy redtinted light brown with a offwhite head, some lacings. Aroma is malt, light sourness, sweet caramel tart fruit, herbs. Flavor is light sourness, malty, caramel, seaburkthorn, citrusly hops. spice, juniper. Medium body, average carbonation, lasting tart finish. A strange beer, but the balance between the sweetness and the seabuckthorn works really well. 080215
