COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer brewed with birch leaves.

Prykmestar Suvi syntyi haasteesta tehd Suomen Olutseuralle 20-vuotisjuhlan kunniaksi nimikkoolut. Sen valmistukessa toivottiin kytettvn perinteisi, suomalaisia, oluen maustamiseen soveltuvia raakaaineita. Niinp panimomestari suuntasi kulkunsa taas metsn...

Maltaiden mskysvedess liotettiin yn yli tuoreita koivunlehti. Koivun hento aromi ei hallitse oluen tuoksua tai maltaista makua, mutta jlkimaussa tuore koivu viimeistelee kesisen makuelmyksen.

Kausiolut, rajoitettu er.

Kirkas kullankeltainen olut kohtalaisella, pitsi jttvll vaahdolla. Tuoksu aika mieto ja "tavanomainen", maltainen sek hieman tunkkainen ja jopa kaalinen, mik tekee tuoksusta varsin epmiellyttvn. Mys maku maltainen sek aika mieto. Koivua en oikein onnistu erottamaan. Kevehk suutuntuma ja sopivasti hiilihappoinen. Kesinen terassijuoma, kevyt muttei vetinen.

Giochaurand (486) - FINLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear golden with medium frothy head. Aroma is corn, malts and an aroma that reminds of birch leaves left in the sauna after they have been used. Flavour is malty, sweet, grainy and birch?

rostetti (273) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle from supermarket. Pour clear golden with white head. After seeing how it looks like, I was afraid it will just taste like lager, but fortunately it had much more to it. Aroma is malty and birch can be smelled. Taste has birch right away, it is very interesting and reminds about forest & nature, after birch, comes maltiness.

jookos (5886) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2015
Tap@lhus hki. Pale golden. Pale malty, quite huskey grainy, with a good sense of that familiar lagery doughy yeast. Flavour is better, the birch shines through, not too strong, but giving a pleasant light sweetness, nature- ness. Light, ligh bland, but better than a lot.

mmyohane (108) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Aroma has hay, grainy malts and mild birch. Pours clear golden with a minimal head that leaves little lacing. Taste has very distinctive birch leaf aroma, grassy hops and nice maltiness. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and nice birch aroma in the finish. Overall a very nice summer beer to sauna.

Rune (11653) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2014
500ml bottle shared with djoeye. Off-white bubbly head. Clear, late straw coloured body. Restrained smell of chocolate and leafy hops. Malt-fruity taste, including chocolate, grassy hops, and a touch of birchwood. Dry ending. Smooth in the mouth. Satisfying (session in Troms 05.12.2014).

djoeye (4152) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2014
White head, golden clear slightly straw body, dotty lacing. Aroma; green birch leaves, apple, roasted chocolate-malt notes far away. Taste; herbal malts, smoked wood, chocolate notes, fruity notes, and the wood is assumably birch (koivu) (as label design told us). Feels normal. Finishes short rounded with birch. Overall; good summer (suvi) beer. [50cl br.btl 4.5%abv [email protected] BB17Dec14 [email protected]]

Kauge (1709) - 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_ (1065) - 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.
