Aroma: yuzu fruit, rice
Appearance: yellow, small head.
Taste: dry, flavour of yuzu, sweet malt, bit caramely, dry herba/ boozy finish.
Palate: medium body, low carbonation, boozy af.
Overall: Meh, tastes like shitty sake blended with yuzu juice.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2017 0.75 bottle @ Jozefitow Very hazy, pale yellow with a quickly disappearing head. Sweet and sour aroma of yuzu, a bit spicy, yeasty, delicately Belgian, umami is quite evident. Taste is also sweet and sour, less spicy. Almost full, slick, soft. Finish is terrific with all the main flavors represented fully. Overall, it is one of the most unusual beers I have had in my brief beer-tasting career. Props for this unorthodox yet palatable and good brew.

From bomber bottle, a sweet and spice aroma , gives way to a multi layered flavour . Initial citrus , then Belgian candy sweetness, with a touch of salt on the finish.

Tried in a bottle from flavourly.com. Golden colour with a white head. Deep grainy and light fruit slight salt. Dry taste umami and with a light sweetness. Big warming body.

Heidbummer (929) - SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2017
Bottle. This is a very complex beer. Pours like thick cider, scrumpy even, no head after a few bubbles. Big farmhouse ale aroma - must, sawdust, herbs, grass. There’s an immediate boozy warming hit from hit, followed by a bewildering mix of tastes - sour, citrus at first but that quickly gives way to a thicker, sugary maltiness, then some umami and a deep citrus (preserved lemons) then more heat in the back with pepper and something herbal. It won’t impress everyone, but it’s a complicated and interesting beer. If it’s really a beer.....

Well, it said lager on the label, not BSA.... overwhelmingly alcoholic. At first nothing but booze. Then some fruity notes coming from yuzu, very juicy and a bit tart. Gentle Umami overtones. Meh.

Kavu (5155) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2017
0,1l on tap @ TCBW 2017. Pours cloudy yellow with a low head. Aroma is slightly tart malts with some fruits. Flavor is sweet malts with some fruits. Some sea buckthorn. Good.

Sigmund (7961) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 19, 2017
Shared 750 ml bottle at local tasting, thanks to gunnar. ABV is 13%. Orange colour, slightly hazy. Minimal head. Aroma of yuzu fruit, sea buckthorn berries and seaweed. Very moderate carbonation. The medium sweet and fruity flavour has strong notes of yuzu and sea buckthorn. Interesting, to say the least.

Holmen2 (4132) - NORWAY - APR 18, 2017
Shared bottle at RB/HD at Gunnar´s 18.04.17. Clear golden. Not much head. Aroma of ripe fruits. Similar taste, with citrus and refreshing dryness. Complex.

Holmen1 (6567) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 18, 2017
Fra flaske på RBHD-samling hos Odd Gunnar, april-17: nok en øl som Inbreak ikke liker, så det er et kvalitetsstempel. Lett uklar gylden med kort skum. Mild, fruktig aroma med honning, citron, røde bær. Tindved og tang er benyttet. Voltstyrken er forbilledlig skjult, her nyter vi hver eneste dråpe. Saftig, saftig og saftig. Life by the seaside is good.
