Ægir var ølbryggjaren til gudane i den norrøne mytologien. Ægir Bryggeri tilbyr fleire ulike ølsortar - frå yst til mørkt.

Witbier ("kvit øl") er basert på den belgiske tradisjonen med å nytta krydder som korianderfrø og appelsinskal i eit øl som inneheld ein stor del kveite. Ølet fekk navnet "kvit" fordi det er lyst og uklårt grunna både gjærstamme og kveite.

Siv var i norrøn mytologi gudinne over fruktbarheit og korn, og gir her namn til ei forfriskande og smaksrik oppleving!

Bottle at home. This is the first beer ever the wife said was good. Apparently a good drink to have with christmas baking. Poured a clear light amber, with a short lived head. Bottle only supports a single clean pour, no breaks or pauses. Noticeably non-oily. Smalles of orange, citrus, grass, wheat and meadow flower honey. Tastes fresh, cleansing and sweet with a finishing bubbly bitterness. Good stuff.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2014
Bottled@AIH40 (Vinmonopolet, Kirkenes). Golden colour with some haze. and small white head. Aroma is citrus, some yeast, spices and mild earth. Flavour is big time citrus, a bit rubbery notes along with some zestiness. A slight dissappointment from this brewery, who usually makes rather nice things. This got up to "kind of mediocre"

TBone (13002) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2014
Bottled 500ml (Vinmonopolet, AIH40)
Murky yellow color, small white head. Aroma has dishwater cleanser, lemon. Medium-bodied. Flavor is better than aroma. Light coriander, pale maltyness, easy to drink body. Quite boring wit.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Tap at the brewery, Flåm, 25/10/14. Milky ochre slimly capped with white. Zesty pineapple cube, unmalted barley nose big on the peel and coriander. Solid, slightly boozy perfumed wit flavour awash with appropriate levels of peppery coriander and dried rinds. A little nip of bitterness in the tail. Excellent.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2014
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of straw and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, lemons, metal, and a bit of malt, leading to a dry bitter finish.

Sigmund (5326) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 20, 2014
500 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet Ølen. ABV is 5.5%. Slightly hazy pale golden colour, large white head. Strong aroma of grassy hops, like a really well hopped pilsener. The expected notes of coriander and orange peel are there, but more subdued. Soft and smooth mouthfeel. Pleasant dry and smooth flavour with distinct notes of coriander and hops, hints of orange peel and cloves. Will buy again.

Very wheat citrusy orange aroma. Smooth beyond comparison. A great summer light smooth ale. The wheat taste blends perfectly with the light citrusy hop character

djoeye (1855) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2014
Brown 50cl bottle 5.5%abv, off white deutschhh head if one wants, depends on how you pour it. Lots of lacings. Clear (!) gold golden body. Spices, wheat malts, ripe banana, cloves, coriander and more to the nose. Promising start. Tastes fruity wheat malts, fresh grass, coriander, cloves, other meadow spices, more fruitiness. Smooth n easy on palate, suitable carbonation. Finishes herbal, the fruity malts are still there, lingering a bit into spices. Overall tasty, mild for the style, easy to drink, good beer. B@Vinmonopolet, shared with my wife at home.
