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.

kaserov (289) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2016 Color marrón oscuro, turbio, sin apenas capa de espuma (por mucho que te esfuerces no va a durar). Carbonatación mínima. Aroma muy complejo: a malta tostada, café, chocolate; se nota también el lúpulo. El sabor contiene lo mismo que el aroma: malta tostada, algo de chocolate, lúpulo y un final de café increíble. ¿Pegas? Solo dos (y muy mínimas): falta de amargor (creo que hubiera ganado un plus con un final amargo); falta de carbonatación (apenas tiene y un poquito de gas hubiera producido un efecto más interesante en el paladar). Como digo, pegas mínimas. Es un cervezón. Toda una sorpresa. La sonrisa de niñato que me ha pintado en la cara nada más olerla no me la quita nadie hoy.

AnG_BrgNor (572) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2016
veldig kompleks aroma. Karamell, malt, noe "skog" og lyng og noe frukt. Smaken er ganske lik, men med en frisk smak det er vanskelig å beskrive. En positiv overraskelse.
