Danish: En øltype, som der sjældent eksperimenteres synderligt med, er den tyske variant af hvedeøl Hefe Weizen eller Weissbier. Den er noget af det mest klassiske og konservativt stilrene, man kan forestille sig. Det vil sige, det var den indtil Amager Bryghus gav den et servicetjek… Med Amager Citra Weiss parrer vi nemlig tradition og fornyelse. Basisøllen er helt klassisk med 40% hvedemalt og en tysk hvedeølsgær. Men det er humlingen, der er humlen ved det hele, om vi så må sige… Vi har nemlig kastet vores drengede kærlighed på Citra, som er en ganske nyudviklet humlesort med kun ganske få år på bagen. Den klassiske Hefegær udvikler typisk let sødlige banantoner, og med vores tilsætning af Citrahumlen tager vi et skridt videre ind i universet af eksotiske frugter, for som humlens navn antyder, som er den garant for friske citrustoner som for eksempel grapefrugt, lime, mandarin, citron og har du et åbent sind kan du måske også finde papaya, ananas, mango, litchi, passionsfrugt og fyrenåle. Det er lidt af et festfyrværkeri fra supermarkedets frugtafdeling – tag godt imod den. Vi synes selv den er noget af det mest forfriskende, vi har lavet.
Ingredienser: bygmalt, hvedemalt, tysk hvedeølsgær og Citrahumle.

English: An experimental single-hop Hefe Weizen.
A beer which is rarely experimented radically with is the German version of wheat beer Hefe Weizen or Weiss Bier. It’s one of the most classic and conservative stylistically, one can imagine. That is, until Amager gave it a service check ...
We have thrown in bucket loads of one of our favourite hops Citra, Which is quite a newly developed hop variety only a few years old. The classic weizen typically develops mild sweet banana tones, with the addition of our Citra-hop we have added fresh citrus notes such as grapefruit, lime, tangerine, lemon and if you have an open mind you may also find papayas, pineapples, mangoes, lychees and passion fruit.
It’s kind of a firework display from the supermarket’s fruit section - go with it. We think it’s one of the most refreshing we’ve made.

pilsnerrogge (2816) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2011
Pours a hazy, brownish yellow colour with a big, fluffy head. The aroma has citrus, bubblegum and yeast. Flavour has citrus, tropical fruit and dusty, citric, resiny hops. Long bitterness. It looks and smells like yout typical weiss bier but it tastes like an IPA. That combination actually works great!

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2011
(Bottle) Pours cloudy yellow to pale golden with an off-white head. The aroma holds banana esters and bready/doughy wheat up front. Well balanced hop tones that bring notes of sweet lime and ripe tangerine citrus alongside tropical fruits like peach, pineapple and tart mango. A light hint of apple, spices and bubblegum also notable. The nose is subtle but soft, round and clean. The flavour is light sweet, near medium bitter and light acidic with a dry finish. Tones of banana, spices, wheat, and fruits/citrus. The mouthfeel is clean and round but maybe a bit too watery for the style. Medium carbonation. Hoppy finish with soft wheat and fruit finish. Light to medium bodied. I like this, Amager is just getting better and better. Good work.

madsberg (11369) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2010
Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Dense beige frothy head. Aroma of citrus, light sourness, yeast, flowers, light pine and some spice. Fruits, flowers, sweetness, grape, light pine spice and yeast in the flavoru. Medium to full bodied. Grassy and grapy bitterness in the end. Some kind of a bastard, but I like bastards.

Grovlam (4207) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Huge puffy white head that really lasted. Good display of lacework. Light dusty looking pale golden color. Aroma was very complex sweet exotic fruit with notes of mango, passion fruit, citrus, and pineapple. Over the palate came mild wheat, hint of yeast and again this lovely exotic fruity and filling taste. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and what feels like a light dry texture properly from the Citra hops. Light to medium sweet and bitter flavor well balanced. Light sweetie dry and very tasty finish. I could drink this all day, I really think this is brilliant.

Ktwse (4051) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Name really says it all... Pale yellow, hazy with medium white head. Aroma is dominated by the citra, but there’s also a touch of wheat and yeast, and of course lemon, grapefruit (from the citra). Taste is no ordinary weiss. This one’s like the bastard child of an IPA and a weiss. Thank the citra for that. It does taste a bit odd, but I quite enjoy it, it’s fresh with lemons, grape, wheaty and yeasty and with a very enjoyable bitterness at the end.

Cloudy orange - gold beer. Short lived white head. Light dry palate. Soft creamy malt with a litte dab of soapy yeast. Then glorious orange hops with traces of peel and marmalade and a dash of lemon. Finishes semi dry. Hugely drinkable and with great hop flavours.

jesperhammer (4180) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2010
12-SEP-2010, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer". Pale golden, slightly hazy wiht everlasting white foam that coats the inner of the glass. Citrus nose, but a sweet citrus (!), with loads of grassy hops and then some exotic fruits. Quite complex, quite strange, not in a repulsive way, just in a for me unknown mix. Turns more fruity bordering on sickening sweet dried papaya/mango. Better cold - more refreshing. Could certainly rebuy... ...keep these inovative beers coming, Amager... ...I am ready:)
