3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Jeez that?s a strong fruit aroma. Like a very tart fruit. I?m awful at identifying fruits, so I?ll look at the bottle. Okay, juniper berries makes sense. I?m going to toss those in my next ipa, now. I have no idea what the other thing is. Sea Buckthorn Juice? Danish people are weird, and have weird stuff. And I?m like, .25 danish. That doesn?t sound real though. Pours cloudy with an OK head. Taste is like tart juice. Seriously. I don?t taste malts or even hops. Is this beer? If you told me it had Brett in it I would totally believe you. Calling this an ipa is a very bad decision. Let?s start over. Cloudy pour, tart fruit aroma. Has a fruity, not kind of tart taste. Feels like a wild ale. There?s kind of a muted bitterness as an aftertaste that lingers. Also a bit chalky. Thick body. Each sip is a little different. I like it, but it?s confusing. As my expectations lean towards a wild ale, it feels less complex. Confusing, ultimately. I feel like it?s label is confused and it should?ve used a different yeast. At least I had a strong reaction to it!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy orangey color, topped with a medium sized and medium lasting whit head. Strong herbal aroma, citrusy notes. A combo with a strong soury feel. Taste is strongly soury, herbal quality. Mildly bitter. Slight fruity feel, but more or less bittery herbs with lots of soury notes. Interesting, something different.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Luvians. St Andrews. Cloudy. Ruddy orange. Nice fluffy head. Aroma is interesting. Plenty of dank hop character. Tropical fruits on the turn. Some very over-ripe oranges. Something a bit like rotten seaweed but not entirely unpleasant! Some left-out, sliced pineapple. Bit of guava. Can’t detect the addition of juniper here. Taste is shortly sweet with a sharp twist. The sharpness has length. Medium sourness. Lactic notes. Cleans the palate. Not much malt coming through. Again, can’t taste the juniper. Medium bitterness. Creamy carbonation. No real signs of the alcohol in aroma or flavour. Bit confusing but I’m enjoying the challenge!

Piwo bursztynowe, piana słaba. W aromacie cytrynowość, owoce tropikalne. W smaku kwas, ziemiste. Intensywne w posmaku. Wysycenie średnie. Zaskakująca kombinacja IPA z kwachem. Bardzo ciekawe.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy yellow beer with smallish head but really nice lacing. Aroma has lots of sour berries, seabuckthorn and juniper. Also pine hop notes. Taste is almost like juice, seabuckthorn and juniper berries give lots of sourness and piney hop flavours come in the after taste. Low carbonation and juicy mouth feel.

330ml bottle from Beer Ritz. Muddy yellow amber, reasonable head. Fruity hop aroma, reasonable head. Sour berry flavour. Bitter citrus aftertaste. Thought this was going to be an IPA turns out it is a very bitter fruit beer.
