In 1649, right after the 30 year war in Europe, Hanns Bernreuther leaves Austria as a Protestant fugitive and settles down in Bayern where he starts a brewery. His son, 1674, and grandson, 1749, acquires a farm in Pyras with house called Angerwirts, names that still live on to this day and from where the wheat is supplied. The brewery have remained on family hands and is from 2010 managed by Marlies Bernreuther.
I bought this beer at a Bayern web shop at the price of 2,5 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,2%.
The colour is yellow going to orange and it is a unfiltered beer.
The head is very fine, white tiny bubbles, it disperses into a thin layer that stays.
A lovely aroma with a delicious sweet fruit to it.
Bubbly sensation from a balanced CO2, a good fruit taste with a long after taste. A very good good and balanced composition in the taste.
Overall rating 85 / 100
Tucher brewery is located in Nürnberg, Germany. The brewery produced beer for the hospitals since 1643, but the official founding date for the brewery is 1672.

It was renamed to Tucher in 1985 and is today since 2004 owned by the Oetker group.
I bought this beer at a Bayern web shop at the price of 2,5 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,1%.
The colour is a bright and light yellow filtered beer.
The head is rather small and settles quickly into a very thin layer.
The aroma comes off with a mild but good fruit.
Heavy CO2 with a lack of fruit to the taste, some what bitter and this is supposedly Champagneweissen. Not a beer type that completely suits me.

I bought this vintage port in a local supermarket in Odense, Denmark, it was on offer at 30 Euro. 750ml bottle at 20,5%.
It is only 13 – 14 years old and is properly still too young.
The colour is dark red almost bordeaux.
Taste notes 1 hour after decanting.
Weak fruit to the aroma that is dominated by the alcohol.
Tasting is dry, warm, tannin and some unbalanced notes that almost made me think it was a little corked.
Taste notes 24 hours after decanting.
The dried fruit shines more through in the aroma and alcohol is less dominant.
The taste still have a dry heavy start from the tannin and a great warmth. The unbalanced mentioned earlier is gone and a good after taste finishes it.
It should properly get some more years in the cellar, it lacks the complexity in the taste and a balance in aroma and taste.

I bought this 500ml bottle beer at Vinens Verden, Odense, Denmark. A dark weissbier with a strength of 5,5% for 3,3 Euro.
A brown unfiltered look with a slight dark orange to the bottom.
The thick head of fine bubles, slightly coulered by the dark beer, dissolves into a thin layer.
A good sweet fruit aroma, inviting.
Good CO2 that gives this beer some life compared to other dark beers, some bite to it. A delicious fruit in the after taste and some caramel tones as expected from the dark beer.
Overall rating is 82 / 100
Munkebo mikrobryg is a micro brewery with a capacity of 13.5 hectolitre. Located in Munkebo, Denmark and was founded in 2013.
I bought this weissbier in Vinens Verden in Odense, Denmark at the price of 6 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,0%.
Beautiful yellow to orange colour to the unfiltered beer.
The head is medium sized, thick fine foam and it fades down to a thin layer that stays while drinking.
A sweet fruit aroma with some banana to it, very inviting.
Active CO2 that gives a good start with its bubbly sensation, the fruit is absolutely stunning, such a balanced taste that is at best described as delicious. After taste is a pleasant fading of the fruit.
A expensive beer from a small brewery, but well worth it!
