COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Midsommer Bryg er en lys og let sommerl brygget med pilsner, hvedemal og en del umaltet hvede. Inspirationen er hentet fra belgisk Wit. Som noget srligt ved denne l er birk anvendt i brygprocessen, som er med til at forstrke smagen. Et udtrk af birkeblade er med til at give llet et strejf af peber. En mindre del af humlen er erstattet af birkeved/bark, som er med til at give bitterhed til llet. Bde ved/bark og blade er fra vores egne birketrer p 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

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2011
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.

Rune (12353) - Troms, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2011
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 (3737) - Malm, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2011
Tnk en ljus skandinavisk midsommarnatt. Ljuset, dofterna och atmosfren och denna l med sin friskhet och lena aromer av jord, bjrklv och citrus. Ett fantastiskt vetel som gr en sommar. Kanske mste man vara svensk romantiker fr att lska detta l.

liinis (1769) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2010
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...

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2009
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. Its 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. Im not really impressed by this one. Its 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: Krmig krona, apelsinsaft kur (s dr som den sg ut p 70-talet). D: jst, bjrksav S: jst, bjksav (eller vad man skulle kunna tnka sg att bjrksav skulle kunna smaka vs doften), ltt drucken, lite syrlig dvs en god trstslckare. ES: Lng efter smak, tungan blir torr (trig) och lite kliig. Kanske inte var min dryck iom att jag r bjrkpollen allergiker - vet inte men jag blev lite negativt pverkad. Drar av 0,5 pong...

TBone (17316) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2009
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.
