Alcohol-free Tundra beer
Tundra beer is the second alcohol-free beer I’ve tried from Estonia (the first being Ollenaut which scored well) and hails from the Pohjala brewery.
The Põhjala brewery itself is located in Tallinn and is seen as the largest craft brewery in the Baltic states. Currently, they have over ten different beers on offer including two non-alcoholic ones – a raspberry Berliner Weisse beer and the non-alcoholic IPA, named Tundra, that I tried today.
Põhjala uses an interesting combination of malts and citra and yellow sub hops to create the quintessential IPA flavours.
So the question is is this Tundra another strong non-alcoholic offering from Estonia or one destined to be forgotten ? Well, you’ll just need my review below to find out.
Is Pohjala’s Tundra any good?
This non-alcoholic IPA is pretty decent and surprisingly complex in its flavour profile. I certainly pick out citrus fruits and sweet malty notes and there is a nice bitter hit thanks to the Citra hops. I am glad Phojala has taken its experience and knowledge of beer brewing and geuniely made a tasty alcohol-free beer.
Aroma & Appearance
Classic IPA aromas are released when you open a can of Tundra, especially dominated by the fruity hops. In the glass, this non-alcoholic beer pours with a light amber colour but there isn’t much when it comes to a frothy head.
Buy alcohol-free Tundra IPA
At the time of writing, your best bet to find a can of this beer is from the Pohjala’s site itself. However, sometimes the stockist below also has availability.
