Danish: Midsommer Bryg er en lys og let sommerøl brygget med pilsner, hvedemal og en del umaltet hvede. Inspirationen er hentet fra belgisk Wit. Som noget særligt ved denne øl er birk anvendt i brygprocessen, som er med til at forstærke smagen. Et udtræk af birkeblade er med til at give øllet et strejf af peber. En mindre del af humlen er erstattet af birkeved/bark, som er med til at give bitterhed til øllet. Både ved/bark og blade er fra vores egne birketræer på markerne omkring bryghuset.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Pale hazy, white head. Smells of malts, yeast esters and wood. Taste is light malted with good sweetness. Very summerish and refreshing. Some bitter finish and some tart fruits surprisingly arise after some sips

0.5L bottle bought @Vinmonopolet, Vika. A milk-shaded pale straw colored pour, topped by a tall snowy white head. Yeast and dough up front, then a vague scent of mellow yellow fuits and banana. Taste is undistinct and sappy. Soft bready pale malts, tin-canned fruit-juice fruitiness. Medium full, juicy texture. Bland, fruity and yeast-accented malt finish. Drinkable, but utterly boring and downplayed.

500ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika. Light yellow body with a slight haze. Lasting white head. Grass and wheat to the nose. The taste profile is a mix of lemon, wheat, and hay added by notes of light spices. Dry ending. Foamy in the mouth. Refreshing and ok (hotel room, Oslo 27.09.2011).

Small white head quickly shrinks with a hissing sound. Muddy yellow body. Mealy orangey wheaty aroma with herbal notes. Dry-sweet mealy herbal taste with wheaty orangey notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry oily papery orangey aftertaste with herbal mealy notes. Nice, quite decent, but a bit mealy and papery, and not as fresh as it could be. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoly Vika, Oslo.)

Vignale (3372) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2011
Tänk en ljus skandinavisk midsommarnatt. Ljuset, dofterna och atmosfären och denna öl med sin friskhet och lena aromer av jord, björklöv och citrus. Ett fantastiskt veteöl som gör en sommar. Kanske måste man vara svensk romantiker för att älska detta öl.

Best before 10/2009 so...? Huge medium lasting white foam, yellow hazy and visible yeast. Birch is a very refreshing ingredient in all its forms they have used it. Very fresh and clear.quite ok, but maybe the passed date has something to do with the taste as it is a bit strange...

Pale yellow, very hazy with lots of bubbles in the liquid. A medium sized frothy white airy head settles quickly and leaves small lacings. The smell is of white bread, flour, lemon peel, clementine - quite a lot of semi-sharp fruit esters actually. Plenty of earthy yeast. Some floral notes and phenols. Not much going on in the taste. A some faint fruity notes - lemon peel and banana. Plenty of yeast, white bread, wheat and some dough. Some floral notes, and perhaps this is where the birch becomes present. Gentle spices (cloves) in the middle. The finish is short and quite sharp with some esters and yeast, but at first, the aromas are almost completely overpowered by an overly active carbonation. Not really impressed by the taste. It’s too weak and lacks character. Moderate body, too thin in my opinion. And as noted, quite a lot of carbonation with small and aggressive bubbles. Semi-dry texture. I’m not really impressed by this one. It’s an ok witbier, but absolutely nothing more than ok. Overall, the flavors and aromas are too restrained, and the bland finish is a real letdown. But I guess it would be a great thirst quencher if you drink it really cold.

Flaska 10 grader UTS: Krämig krona, apelsinsaft kuör (så där som den såg ut på 70-talet). D: jäst, björksav S: jäst, bjöksav (eller vad man skulle kunna tänka sg att björksav skulle kunna smaka vs doften), lätt drucken, lite syrlig dvs en god törstsläckare. ES: Lång efter smak, tungan blir torr (träig) och lite kliig. Kanske inte var min dryck iom att jag är björkpollen allergiker - vet inte men jag blev lite negativt påverkad. Drar av 0,5 poäng... Provdatum: 2009-07-28

Bottled bryg #243 (Systembolaget, BB 10/2009).
Slightly hazy yellow color, mostly vanishiing white head. Witbier-like wheaty and white peppery, a bit fruity nose. Crisp carbonation. Citrus peel, banana, plasticky mouthfeel. Herbal and peppery touch. Ok summer drink, although not Earth-shaking wit.

Muddy pale blond color. Lemony and dusty aroma, light plastic too. Medium body (at least for a Witbier), wheat flavor, dry, a bit spicy and herbal. The final is more bitter than the average Witbier. Not bad, but not very useful to me.
