It doesn't affect my driving, the car runs smooth actually, just that noise that bothers me. It happens when I'm around 25%-40% on the gas pedal. The noise will last for about 4 seconds then it'll come back after 2 secs or so. Coasting on the freeway, the car is silent, until I step on it. I'm thinking maybe a low tranny/transfer case fluid? What you all think? Here's the video of it:

Wow, that is a loud noise!  How many miles on the Countryman? I would definitely check the fluid level in the transmission and transfer case, and also make a visual inspection of the fluid itself, make sure it is clear and not milky or contaminated....

For the transfer box: Check transfer box oil level.  If necessary, pour in transmission oil up to lower edge of opening for oil filler plug 

See if there are any indications of previous work on the transfer case - see if any of the bolts on the transfer case and center u-joint / bearing shows signs that they have been removed in the past...
