Schäffler Bräu – Weissbier

The brewery was built in 1868 in Missen, Germany by the Graßl family. In 1939 the family Schäffler got involved and since 1984 it has been under the control of the Graßl family.

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,2%.

Rough structured head that is gone in a moment.

Beautiful orange colour and unfiltered look.

Good sweet fruit in the aroma and it comes off with a suitable strength.

Fantastic fruit, powerful sweetness and still so balanced in the taste. Good CO2 and after taste.

Overall rating 87 / 100

Brasserie Du Bocq – Blanche de Namur

The first beer from Brasserie Du Bocq was from 1858 when Martin Belot, a farmer in Purnode, Belgium started brewing. The Brewery was incorporated into a limited company in 1949. The production reached 104,000 hectoliters in 2015.

I bought this 4.5%, 330 ml bottle of beer in a local supermarket in Odense, Denmark at the price of 2.5 Euro.

Light yellow and white in the colour.

Large head with a rough structure and a fine foam top.

Sweet fruit, some flowers and spiced hops in the aroma.

Low CO2, sweet taste with a light and fresh after taste. Slightly hoppy in the end.

Overall rating 80 / 100

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
