E.C. Dahls Bryggeri – Lamo Wit

E.C. Dahls Brewery was founded in 1856 by Erich Christian Dahl in Trondheim, Norway. In 1966 the brewery merged with Aktiebryggeriet at Lademoen, where it is still located today.

I bought this Belgian inspired wit from Oslo Airport in Norway, the price was 4,5 Euro for a 330 ml bottle at 5,2%

Filtered beer with a light yellow colour and an ever so slightly haziness.

Small head with a rough structure. A thin layer of fine foam stays on the top.

Medium strength aroma that has a real delicious sweet fruit to it. Subtle but very inviting.

Powerful CO2, fresh, fruity and a tiny bit on the thin side. Shows no signs of bitterness or soapiness as some wit beer can. A good beer that is easy to drink and tastes great. After taste is faint but yet pleasing.

Overall rating 84 / 100

Kössel Bräu – Mariahilfer Weizen

Kössel Bräu is located in Eisenberg-Speiden, Bavaria, Germany and is owned by Anton Kössel who also founded the brewery, destillery and guest house in 1992.

I bought this weissbier from a German webshop in Bayern as a part of a large lot, single price came down to 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,0%

Unfiltered beer with a beautiful and light yellow colour.

Large head with a rough structure, a little bit of fine foam on the top.

Medium strength aroma that has a real delicious sweet fruit to it.

Good CO2, fresh, sweet and very well composed with going into a slightly bitter hops at the end. Ceramic cap is not seen that often on exported beer, might be because it is bought from a Bavarian webshop. A pleasure to drink!

Overall rating 86 / 100

Privat-brauerei Zötler – Hefeweissen

The first mentions of the Zötler brewery dates back to 1447 and actually makes the brewery the oldest single family owned brewery in the world.

I bought this weissbier from a German webshop in Bayern as a part of a large lot, single price came down to 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,2%

Deep yellow in the colour of this unfiltered beer.

Medium sized rough structured head with a fine foam on the top.

Powerful aroma that has a balanced sweet fruit to it along with the wheat.

Good CO2, fruited, fresh, acidity, wheated and with a sweet after taste. Delicious composition, but not thick enough in the fabric to leaves a substantial print. Still a solid and good beer.

Overall rating 82 / 100
