Schlossbrauerei Maxlrain – Maxlrainer – Leo Weisse

The Maxlrain castle brewery was first officially mentioned in 1636. At the turn of the century, the beer brewing process was transferred from the Castle to the present brewery site newly erected about 1900. The enterprise has been managed since 1986 by Dr. Erich Prince von Lobkowicz. 

I bought this weissbier from a German webshop in Bayern as a part of a large lot, single price came down to 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,0%

Thick flowing and as orange as a orange juice.

Medium sized head that disappears quickly.

Lovely fresh and fruity aroma that really invites to drink and enjoy it.

Good CO2 level, good fruit notes, sweet and a very good play between the heavy fruit and a wheat in the finish.

Overall rating 84 / 100

Trappist Westvleteren

The monastery Saint-Sixtus Abbey of Westvleteren is located in Westvleteren, Belgium.

In order to provide for their own necessities the monks of Westvlereren have been brewing beer since 1839. This is without any commercial aim and in order to support people who are in need. The brothers work together with some employees in the production process.

I got this trappist beer as a present, the glass bottle is a 330 ml size and has a alcohol content of 8%. Abdij. St. Sixtus 8640

Brown in the colour with very large pieces in the sediment.

Small head with a fine structure and top.

Soft, light and darker notes in the aroma, weak in its apperance.

Not exactly sour, but certainly with some acidity to it with first contact with the tongue, soft CO2, caramel notes with a slightly burned darkness to it, finishes off with a slight bitterness.

Overall rating 72 / 100
