COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer brewed with birch leaves.

Prykmestar Suvi syntyi haasteesta tehdä Suomen Olutseuralle 20-vuotisjuhlan kunniaksi nimikkoolut. Sen valmistukessa toivottiin käytettävän perinteisiä, suomalaisia, oluen maustamiseen soveltuvia raakaaineita. Niinpä panimomestari suuntasi kulkunsa taas metsään...

Maltaiden mäskäysvedessä liotettiin yön yli tuoreita koivunlehtiä. Koivun hento aromi ei hallitse oluen tuoksua tai maltaista makua, mutta jälkimaussa tuore koivu viimeistelee kesäisen makuelämyksen.

Kausiolut, rajoitettu erä.

Kauge (182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from K-supermarket (Kamppi, Helsinki - € 3,99) in August 2014. Pours a hazy light amber; the white head disappears fast. Nose is weirdly medicinal, soapy, grassy, grainy, pils-y. Not pleasant. Taste is very malty, slightly bitter and even sour with an acidic prickle in the throat. Not really getting any of the birch thing, neither in nose nor taste. Medium body, not much carbonation; palate is rather sticky. The idea to use birch is brilliant but the result seems to be a failure... I was really hoping for a good ’sauna experience’ in the form of a beverage... Maybe just a bad batch?

Andy_ (722) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Clear white golden beer with white soapy head. Aroma has grass, hay and birch leaves. Flavor is malty with grass and birch leaves. Thin palate with strong carbonation. Mild bitterness on the finish and aftertaste is malty. The birch leaves are not too dominant, but present. The beer underneath it is just not that spectacular.

Erasmus_ro (1399) - Alabama, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours an orangey golden with a large, white head. Aroma is light pale malts, light grass. Some weird kind of herb or berry that I can’t really place. Probably the birch leaves. Taste is pale malts, some birch and grass. Lightly sour, some funky fruitiness in the background. High carbonation that covers the rather light body. Fairly refreshing in the beginning, but doesn’t encourage one to finish the whole thing.

hlkanga (204) - - SEP 5, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours clear golden with minimal white head. Rather unpleasant and a bit tart aroma of birch-leaves, malt and mild hops. More pleasant taste of birch and sweet malt as undertone. Medium bodied, medium carbonation and oily mouthfeel. Birch finish. Unique idea and taste but I´m not sure do I like it or not. Birch is dominating both aroma and taste.

zomba (212) - Nokia, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with small white head. Somewhat bitter taste. Didn’t really notice the birch leaves in the taste. Ok, but nothing special compared to bulk stuff.
