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.

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 (5025) - 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 (7820) - 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 (3882) - 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 (6304) - 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.

gunnar (9403) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 18, 2017
Shared bottle at local tasting.Pours clear golden, no head. Aroma of fruits, yeast and spices. Taste is light tarty and acidic fruits, nice fruity middle, long fresh finish.

Inbreak (6407) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - APR 12, 2017
12.04.2017, 0,75l bottle shared @ BBGTC tasting:
No head, pour very dens - almost syrupy / oily. Aroma is mild sour-ish grassy, weeds, grass, winegum, citrus peel, minerals, bark, alcohol, wet cardboard, heather. Taste is slightly dry sour-ish, grass, minerals, fruit stones, citrus peel, bark, paper, heather, alcohol, winegum. Medium bitterness, slightly harsh sour-ish mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.

ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 12, 2017
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a thick, viscous golden body with a small white head. Nose is red fruits, barnyard funk, glue, hay and hints of sea buckthorn, lactic sour tones and soapy herbs. Taste is barnyard funk, red fruits, buckthorn, citrus, hay and hints of sour lactic notes and wine gum. So. Weird. Ropey sour beer. That’s a first. Probably need a bit of aging..
