GS6A6773

Avery Brewing Company was founded by Adam Avery in 1993. It is located in Boulcer, Colorado, USA. It is a small craft brewery that have seven all year products and they do six different seasonal beers.

I bought this Belgian style white ale from Systembolaget in Kristiansstad, Sweden at the price of 4 Euro for a 12 oz (355 ml) can at 5,6%

Yellow in the colour and with a white bottom, slightly hazy.

Small head that disappears quite fast.

Good sweet fruit in the aroma with a hint of flowers.

Medium CO2 with a balanced fruit and flower in the taste. Slightly bitter but fits right in, light and mild, easy to drink.

Overall rating 84 / 100

Munkebo mikrobryg – Hejmdal coconut wheat ale

GS6A6721

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 wheat ale in Vinens Verden in Odense, Denmark at the price of 4,5 Euro for a 330 ml bottle at 5,2%.

Beautiful orange colour to this unfiltered beer and really thick flowing.

Medium head with super fine bubbles.

Very hoppy aroma with a weak hint of fruit.

Low CO2, hops, sweet toned with a bitter bite. Wheat and coconut does not quite get out as much as it could and maybe should to live up to the title.

Overall rating 73 / 100

Stiegl Brauerei – Stiegl Weisse

GS6A6777

Stieglbrauerei zu Salzburg is a brewery located in Salzburg, Austria. It was founded in 1492 by the name Brew am Stiegl. The name originates from the steps that lead up to the brew house from the river.

The brewery grew larger through time and moved by 1863 its production to city of Maxglan. The old brew house was sold to the city in 1909. Stiegl is the largest privately owned brewery in Austria.

I bought this unfiltered weissbier at Systembolaget in Kristianstad, Sweden at the price of 2,5 Euro for at 500 ml bottle at 5,1%.

A good looking orange and yellow beer with good haziness.

Great big head, the rough bottom falls together and leaves a fine top.

Light and sweet fruit in the aroma.

Good CO2, very sweet fruit with a long after taste. A absolutely fruit bomb and something to enjoy in small sips, not a beer meant for quenching a thirst.

Overall rating 90 / 100

Slotbryggeriet Gavnø – Hvedeøl

GS6A6967

Slotsbryggeriet Gavnø is located on the castle of Gavnø, Denmark. The castle dates back to the 1800’s and the brewery is in on of the old breeding stables. Brewer Mogens Damm runs the daily production and the brewery is owned by Baroness Helle Reedtz-Thott.

They use ingredients from their own production and water from their own natural spring.

 

I bought this unfiltered wheat beer from the supermarket Irma in Copenhagen, Denmark at the price of 4 Euro for a 500ml bottle at 4,9%.

A very beautiful, thick and very hazy orange colour.

A great big head.

Sweet and lovely fruit aroma but with a hint of something weird.

Medium CO2, sweet and hoppy. A weird taste that does not belong in a beer comes through after a few seconds. I had to throw the beer out, it was like it was contaminated.

I took contact to the brewery and offered them to send in a sample for examination, they refused with the argumentation that their control is good and there was no chance of a contaminated bottle leaving the factory. With my experience from the food and brewery industry, I can only say that it is a arrogant approach to food safety.

Overall rating 50 / 100
