Fanø brewery is located on the small island Fanø just outside of Esbjerg, Denmark. The brewery was founded in 2006 from 3500 people putting money together to open a brewery on the island, at this time there is about 150 small breweries in Denmark and they have to close the brewery down in December 2008, competition was too hard.
The brewery was bought by an investment company in 2009, a different tactic and a lot of hard to work to sell the beer local have made the brewery sustainable in business.
I bought this strong Erica wheat beer at Hjerting Hotel in Hjerting, some 10 kilometers north of Esbjerg, Denmark at the price of 4,5 Euro for a 330ml bottle at 10,2%.
There is a heavy sediment, so take care when pouring.
The colour is a lovely yellow with orange to it and unfiltered hazy.
There is no head but a little at the sides.
Sweet overdose aroma with a hint of honey and a strong alcohol.
Heavy. Like glue. Hides is high alcohol percentage very well, reminds me of mead beer. This was really over the top and too much for me, could not finish the beer.
Overall rating 70 / 100
