Kollabrett Kriek

Brewery: Litra Brewing Company (Collaboration with armando_ochoa)
Style: Sour
ABV: 8.0%
Country number: 115
Bought at: Csak a Jó Sör in Budapest, Hungary
Date: 28/11/2018
My Untappd rating:

This week I’m enjoying a relaxing vacation in Budapest, Hungary. As usually I did some beer research before coming here and that research led me to the shop Csak a Jó Sör which had four different beers from the Moldavian brewery Litra Brewing Company. All these beers are brewed in collaboration with the Hungarian brewery armando_otchoa which explains why I could get them here in Budapest.

The beer is hazy dark red with no foam at all. It smells like the red wine barrells it has been stored on for 6 months. The taste is sour and fruity with lots of cherry. The finish is slightly short and on the boozy side. Might be a good beer if you like kriek style beers, but not for me.

Same story this week as last week. Bought at the same place but enjoyed one day later when compared with the beer from Finland.

The beer is clear golden in colour with a white foam head. It smells and tastes of malts with a citrusy taste. The finish is long, malty and bitter. A very good lager.

After finally finding beer from a new country last week I’m back to reviewing one of the 43 beers I had before start of this blog in 2017. One thing you might notice is that the country number on the last reviews is jumping a little from entry to entry. The reason for this is that I have not been able to find some of the beers that I had before starting in 2017. So I will leave the ones I haven’t been able to find and hopefully review them at a later stage. No over to todays review! In the blogentry for Sweden I mentioned that I travelled to Västerås for some flying. That stay lasted for two weeks and since I was joined by the same beerenthusiast who supplied me with the beer from Samoa and Albania I was able to tick of some countries while we were there.

The beer is golden in colour with very little carbonation. It doesn’t taste too much but has a malty and a sweet middle. The finish is bitter but ends rather quickly.

Hairoun

Brewery: St. Vincent Brewery
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.8%
Country number: 114
Bought at: The Dover Market in Bridgetown, Barbados
Date: 04/11/2018
My Untappd rating: 3.00

On Thursday I got an e-mail from work asking if I could travel to Liège on Friday to operate a cargoflight to Caracas in Venezuela and then further on to Bridgetown in Barbados. As a result of this I’m spending two nights in Barbados. Banks Lager from Barbados was actually one of the first beers I had at World of Beer in Port Orange, USA. It was therefor a nice surprise that I noticed this bottle of Hairoun when visiting the local supermarket after arriving today.

Hard to tell anything about colour since I drank it from the bottle. Decent amount of carbonation. It tastes crisp and malty, but sadly this feeling fades rather quickly before some of the maltyness returns in the end. Very refreshing in 30°C heat on Barbados!

Åbro Original

Style: Lager
ABV: 5.2%
Country number: 28
Bought at: Neverland Pub & Restaurang in Stockholm, Sweden
Date: 05/12/2015
My Untappd rating: 3.00

In December 2015 I travelled to Västerås in Sweden to do the flying portion of my European pilot licence. As I was starting there on a Monday my brother and I travelled to Stockholm on the Friday before to explore the Swedish capital. I had this standard Swedish lager when we stopped for something to eat on one of these days.

The beer is yellow in colour with a little hazyness to it. It has a heavy amount of foam to it even when poured slowly. It tastes kinda flat but still brings a solid malty kick. Citrusy notes towards the end.

Bought at: Giraffe at Heathrow Airport in London, England
Date: 14/09/2015
My Untappd rating: 3.50

In September 2015 I travelled to Mallorca together with the family to celebrate my fathers 60th birthday. When flying to Mallorca I had a short stop at Heathrow Airport in London. While ordering something to eat at Giraffe I noticed this exotic beer from Peru and decided that my meal would be even better with a South American lager complimenting it.

The beer is dark golden in colour with a finger wide foam top. It tastes crisp and malty with a small bitter hint. It finishes off with a dry malty taste.

Not much to say about this weeks revisit as it is the same story as last weeks beer from Greece. Bought at the same store and enjoyed the same place with the same good company of friends as last weeks entry.

The beer is clear golden in colour with a minimal amount of white foam on top. It tastes sweet and malty with a hint of citrus. The end is rather short and malty.

Mythos

Style: Lager
ABV: 5%
Country number: 23
Bought at: Meny Bogstadveien in Oslo, Norway
Date: 17/01/2015
My Untappd rating: 3.25

Still no new beers in the horizon which means I will continue to do these revisits until something new pops up. This week it’s another beer enjoyed in Oslo but this time bought at a nearby Meny and enjoyed at the apartment that we rented for the month.

The beer is golden in colour with a nice amount of carbonation. It smells malty and tastes just as it smells. Nice crisp maltyness that finishes on a sweet note. A bit to bland to reach a higher score for me.

Kilkenny

Brewery: St. James’s Gate Brewery
Style: Red Ale
ABV: 4.3%
Country number: 22
Bought at: O’Learys in Oslo, Norway
Date: 03/01/2015
My Untappd rating: 3.75

As last weeks revisit brought us into 2015 we don’t have to go far into the new year to find this weeks revisit. In January that year I moved to Oslo for a month to do the ATPL Ground School as part of the process to get my European pilot licences. Shortly after arriving me and some fellow classmates went to O’Learys for something to eat and with it I had a Kilkenny draught.

The beer is dark red in colour with a fluffy white foam head. It tastes malty with a roasty taste in the end. Hints of sweetness in both smell and taste.
