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.

Kirkas kullankeltainen olut kohtalaisella, pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu aika mieto ja "tavanomainen", maltainen sekä hieman tunkkainen ja jopa kaalinen, mikä tekee tuoksusta varsin epämiellyttävän. Myös maku maltainen sekä aika mieto. Koivua en oikein onnistu erottamaan. Keveähkö suutuntuma ja sopivasti hiilihappoinen. Kesäinen terassijuoma, kevyt muttei vetinen.

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?

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.

[email protected]ölhus 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.

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.

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 Tromsø 05.12.2014).

djoeye (5383) - Tromsø, 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 (2131) - 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?

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.
