Kloster Scheyern – Weisse Hell

GS6A8036

Since 1119 the Benedictine monks brew beer in Scheyern. The monastery brewery is proven to be Germany’s third oldest brewery. But it has not been used for many decades but was reopened completely renewed in 2006.

I bought this beer in a small wine shop in Rieti, Italy at the price of 4,5 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,2%.

Shinning yellow with a good haziness.

A big head with a super fine top and a layer that stays on it.

A lovely and sweet fruit aroma.

Delicious taste and good CO2 that balances well. Good fruit with lasts well into a suitable length after taste.

Overall rating 90 / 100

Little Valley Brewery – Hebden’s Wheat

GS6A8271

Little Valley Brewery is a family-run business founded in 2005. All the beers are brewed, bottled and branded high on the Pennine moorland of Cragg Vale, just outside Hebden Bridge. It was founded by master brewer Wim van der Spek and co-owner Sue Cooper. All their products are 100% organic / biodynamic.

I bought this beer at the Salling store in Aarhus, Denmark at the price of 4 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 4,5%.

Orange going to yellow in the colour, real hazy.

A large and rough head that quickly retracts to almost nothing.

A medium strength aroma that comes off with a fresh, sweet and hoppy fruit.

A lot of CO2 is released and it is a very active beer. Sweet wheat and very bitter hops. Not so spiced as a wit but more with a taste along the lines of citrus. Biodynamic beer.

Overall rating 79 / 100
