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.

Fra flaske på Nærbø ølfestival 2015. Matt mahognifarget med lysebrun ring langs glasset. Kandissukker og vingummi blant aromaene. Fyldig, søt med godt balansert bitterhet. Blir noe besk i ettersmaken og noter av tørt løv kommer frem.

Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, peel from citrus fruits and hints of pine, spices, chocolate and berries. Mahogany with a tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a average carbonation. Overall a really beautiful brew with a rich flavour of caramel, coffee, dried fruits and spices combined with a full body and warming alcohol in the back.

bbertels (263) - NORWAY - APR 29, 2015
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!
