Albani – Citra Witbier – Belgisk hvedeøl

I bought this 500 ml can at 5,2% in a Danish supermarket at the price of 2 Euro. 

Albani Brewery is located in Odense, Denmark and was established in 1859 by three local business owners and of these the most famous is Theodor Schiøtz. Albani expanded in Odense and also bought up another nine breweries in Denmark over the course of almost 100 years. In 2000 Albani became a part of Royal Unibrew and remains there today.

Light yellow in the colour, a few heavy pieces of sediment floats around but generally you can see through it.

Medium sized head with a fine structure and top. The foam stays on the beer for a good while with a thin suitable layer.

Powerful citrus and flowery aroma, a note of sweetness to it.

Low CO2, sweet at first with all the fruit but that quickly changes when the coriander and citrus fruits kick through along with the bitterness of the hops.

Overall rating 76 / 100

Quinta do Pego Colheita Porto 2007

I tasted this 750 ml bottle at 20% at a family dinner. It has a estimated price in Denmark of 34 Euro.

This Quinta do Pego Colheita 2007 was bottled in 2016.

Deep orange red colour.

Light sweet fruits in the aroma with a dominating alcohol.

Soft tannin with a okay balance to the fruit. After taste has a good sweet raisin which the slowly fades out.

When first uncorked it is dominated by the alcohol and needs to breathe, no decanting, just needs to sit for half a day in bottle with level under the neck. That really works wonders on a colheita.

Overall rating 84 / 100

Memminger Brauerei – Alpköning Hefe-Weizen

Memminger Brauerei comes from Ulmer in Bayern, Germany and dates back to 1897. It has a long history of different owners, names, joint ventures and it ends up as a privately owned brewery in 2003.

I bought this beer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,1%

Beautiful unfiltered beer that has a thick flow to its orange colour.

Grand big head with a fine white foam top.

Good sweet fruit aroma with hints of wheat.

Good CO2, sweet fruit, full bodied, great balance. If only it had a longer after taste.

Overall rating 83 / 100
