Bryggeriet Skovlyst – Skovbærhvede

GS6A4922

The brewery Skovlyst was founded in 2004 and is located in Hareskoven,Værløse, Denmark. Since the 2007 the large batches of beer is brewed on license in Poland. Only limited edition, draft beer and beer for the restaurant is still made at the brewery in Denmark.

I was given this beer as a gift, it can be bought in supermarkets in Denmark. It is a 330ml bottle at 2,7%.

Dark red, rosa and brown in the colour.

A low head that disappears into a thin layer.

Sour berries aroma with a hint of hops.

Dead CO2, the taste of forest berries is nauseating and lasts for what seems way too long and the hint of beer in the taste does nothing good for the combination.

Overall rating 58 / 100

Erdinger Alkoholfrei

GS6A4923

This wheat beer comes from the Erdinger brewery located at Erding in Bayern.

Erdinger have been making beer here since 1886, the brewery was established and later in 1930 it is bought by a malt factory, F.W. Otto. In 1935, the managing director Franz Brombach is offered to buy the brewery. Since then the brewery became very popular and it a widely exported weissbier. The brewery is still owned by the Brombach family today.

I bought this beer at a Bayern web shop at the price of 2,5 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 0%.

The colour is a light yellow.

A big head that is rough with fine foam on the top.

A weak fruit aroma with a hint of bitterness.

Good CO2, watery and thin in the very weak fruit taste, feels like a wheat smoothie.

Overall rating 71 / 100

To Øl – Cloud 9 wit

GS6A4141

To øl is not a real brewery but two guys that are nomad brewers, Tobias Emil Jensen and Tore Gynther started their first commercial brews in 2010.

I bought this beer in the wine store H.J.Hansen in Odense, Denmark at the price of 5 Euro for a 330ml bottle at 4,6%.

A lightly coloured yellow and just some sediment in this unfiltered beer.

Large sized head, fine bubbles on the top and rough in the bottom.

A sweet fruit with a mango, some hop and flowers to the aroma.

Good CO2, very bitter, oranges and mango fruits in the after taste. Bitter as in goose bump bitter. Over the top for what I find pleasant but it has some good fruit tones.

Overall rating 73 / 100
