Carlsberg Weizen

GS6A3462

Carlberg brewery was founded in 1847 by J. C. Jacobsen, located in Copenhagen, Denmark. The first export of beer barrels was in 1868 due to the high quality of the beer. In 1875 the Carlsberg laboratory was founded and in 1883 it succeeded to grow a clean beer yeast and avoid uncontrollable fermentation in the beer. To this day this yeast is still used all over the world for pilsner brewing.

J. C. Jacobsens son, Carl Jacobsen, rented himself into brewery buildings owned by his father in 1871. They never could agree on the quality of the brew where the son wanted to brew faster to meet demands. J. C. Jacobsen kicked his son out of the lease in 1880 and Carl Jacobsen built the brewery Ny Carlsberg next to the other breweries. The two breweries was first fusioned 19 years after the fathers death.

Carlberg bought Wiibroe brewery in 1964, Tuborg in 1970, Hannen-Brauerei in 1988, a fusion with Tetley in 1992 and in 2000 they took over Feldschlösschen.

From 2008 there is no longer brewed beer in Copenhagen, except on the small brewery called Jacobsen where special beer of higher quality is made.

Carlsberg is among the 4th largest brewery corporations in the world.

I bought this beer in a supermarket in Denmark at the price of 3 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 4,8%.

A dark orange colour to this unfiltered beer.

Medium sized head, fine bubbles with a light brown shine to them. The head disappears fast.

A good sweet fruit aroma with just a hint of flowers.

Light CO2, good fruit and fast after taste.

Overall rating 78 / 100
