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.

Bottle. Hazy, light yellow with large white head. Yeast, sweet candy bananas "skumbanan". Citrus, esp lemon and grass. Refreshing. Somewhat bitter finish of lemon. Nice beer overall.

(backlog) Bottle. Hazy golden pour with white spotty head. Wheat, lemon and other citrus aromas. Flavors follow, not too citrus forward.

Postupně sem budu doplňopvat piva, co jsem vypil a zapsal si, chvilku to asi bude trvat a proto k těm dříve vypitým pivům nebudou žádné "dojmy" .

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.

Opaque yellow in color with a hint of white head. Light citrus hop aroma. Light bodied wheaty but (citrus) hops dominate the flavor

Det här var en jättebesvikelse, jag hade väntat mig något riktigt bra här men jag hade tokfel. Jag kan inte sätta fingret på vad som jag tyckte var fel men fel var det.

Bottle. A big, creamy, off-white head over an unclear, yellow-golden body. The aroma is very citrusy and peachy, some mango and grapefruit notes. and a sugary, pineapple hint. Mango, peaches and citrus in the flavor, low on bitterness, which suits the beer just fine. Mediium body, pleasant carbonation. An unusual but quite nice weissbier. 110610

PotjeBier (3194) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2011
From notes. Bottled @ Beer Temple. Golden color, hazy. White head. Aroma’s of spices & herbs, pepper, grassy hops, sour fruit (lemon), orange peel. Flavor is somewhat tart, fruity. Light body. Dry bitter finish. OK but not much balance.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2011
In short: A yeasty wheat beer with a aggressive bitter hopping. A bit too aggressive for its own good.
How: Bottle 500ml. Exact age unknown (forgot to note the expiration date) but probably 6 to 12 months of age, as fresh as an Amager can be in North-America
The look: Cloudy yellow body topped by an enormous white head with good retention. The last 20% of the bottle had nasty looking big chunks of yeast
In long: The intensely hoppy nose is tropical fruits, pineapple upside down cake, floral hops and more. Taste has light notes of bananas, lots of yeast, tropical fruits, freshly squeezed lemons. The beer is very bitter and also quite acidic which makes for an abrasive finish. Carbonation was a little too aggressive. Overall I’m not too sure what this beer is trying to do. A hoppy wheat ale that is too abrasive to be refreshing. Puzzling. But at least it is tasty and certainly not boring. That’s my opinion, and when drinking a beer I’m usually the best beer taster in the room, because I’m all alone in my house, because nobody wants to drink with a pretentious know-it-all like me.

rederic (3335) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2011
500ml bottle, batch 288, slight hazy blonde hue, with a big rocky bubbly white head, spicy, yeasty, herbal nose of kind of dill pickle, with some tropical fruit esters of rambutan, lychee, with some floral lemongrass, lime, lemon, grapefruit peel hop notes in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a good fruity, yeasty pineapple, lychee, pear, grapefruit, lime, lemon rind, flowery leafy, cedary hop character, with a spicy lemongrass, fraint dill undertone and a zesty citrusy backbone, leading towards a light pear, lychee fruitiness, good citrus, zesty lime, lemon, grapefruit rind hop bitterness finish.

Diogène (1208) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2011
Bouteille. Bière jaune pâle voilée et surmontée d’une très épaisse mousse blanche. Au nez, le houblon citra et ses arômes de citron est dominant avec des notes fruitées et de levures. En bouche, c’est encore le houblon citra qui domine largement, laissant un peu de place au malt avec une finale légèrement amère et des notes minimes de clous de girofle. Le blé est très discret.
