COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vinter is said to be a crossover between a Strong American Amber and an Old Ale. It features generous amounts of Perle, Citra and Cascade, making it more hoppy than the beer traditionally brewed before Christmas in Norway. The beer pairs well with heavier meat dishes, casseroles and traditional Christmas food. It is also excellent enjoyed on its own, ideally in front of the fireplace on a cold winters night.

Editor’s note: Vinter was first brewed on contract in the fall of 2013 at Lervig Aktiebryggeri in Stavanger, but moved to 7 Fjell when the brewery was up and running.

Tap @ pingvinen, Bergen. Almost mint aroma, amber colour, low carbonation. Mint is also present in the taste, together with the more expected rich maltiness. Great stuff!

Bottle. Medium brown-red, glowing. Piny nose, caramel, big hops. Chewy malt flavor, caramel, chocolate, some citrus and grass. Very bitter. Seems to be chasing Arrogant bastard. Very nice, silky and smooth body though, with light carbonation. Body works well.

Foffern (1386) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy, deep brown colour with a light brown head. Aroma of spices, rye bread, plastic bag, brown malt, grassy hops and some pine. More roasted malt in the flavour with coffee beans, grassy hops, grapefruit and more pine. Has a slick mouth feel, and a pleasant and balanced bitterness. A roasted and hoppy ale. Nice enough.
