Løkken Bryghus – Badehus – Witbier

Løkken brewery dates back to 1867 where the brewer Anders Christian Andersen bought a old shipping warehouse in Løkken, Denmark. Løkken Bbrewery is today a micro brewery and has a yearly production of 700 hl. beer after their own recipes.

I bought this witbier on a 330 ml bottle at 4,6% from a wine shop in Odense, Denmark at the price of 2,5 Euro.

Yellow in the colour with a somewhat grey porridge tone to it.

No head or foam worth mentioning.

A anonymous aroma and almost too light to notice.

The flat CO2 with a dominating wheat in the taste is only slightly broken up with a minimal flower note, finishes with a slight bitterness.

Overall rating 66 / 100

Mongozo Buckwheat White Beer

Huyghe Brewery is a brewery founded in 1906 by Leon Huyghe in city of Melle in East Flanders, Belgium. They have a product line called Mongozo.

I bought this organic, gluten free, fair trade white wheat beer in a 330 ml bottle at 4,8%, at a wine shop at the price of 4 Euro.

Yellow in the colour with a white touch to it.

Medium sized head with a fine structure and top.

Flowers and fruit comes off in a good composition in the aroma, suitable in strength, the flowery part is not dominant over the fruit.

Drinking and tasting starts with a relatively flat CO2, a somewhat confused impression from the flower, wheat and hops composition. One of the few things that drags this beer in the right direction is it being organic.

Overall rating 71 / 100

Wieninger Hefe Weissbier Dunkel

Old texts mention, that beer was brewed in the 1600’s by the father of, Tobias Schaidinger who in 1656 built a new brewery in Teisendorf, Germany. This brewery was bought by Philipp Wieninger in 1813. The brewery is today driven by Christian Wieninger who is the 8th generation of the brewing family.

I bought this dunkel weissbier on a 500 ml bottle at 5,2% from a German webshop located in Bayern. The price was 1,49 Euro.

A deep brown colour with a very dark orange tone in the bottom of the glass.

Grand big head with a rough structure, a very fine foam on the top.

The aroma comes off with a good sweet fruit with a medium strength.

When drinking the beer it immediately welcomes with a good CO2 content, delicious fruit with a weak wheat twist to it, but unfortunately it ends very fast and is too gentle in its taste expression.

Overall rating 79 / 100
