Ørbæk brewery was founded in 1906 by the Madsen family in Ørbæk. The brewery remained on family hands for 3 generations. At the end of the 1970’s the brewery was sold and had many different owners up until the start of the 1990’s where it closed for good. The brewery had a capacity of 20 HL.
Niels and Nicolai Rømer bought the old brewery with all original equipment in 1996, restoration was needed on both buildings and machines. In 2005 they built a new brew house with a capacity of 6o HL.
Ørbæk brewery produces a wide range of biodynamic products, it is delightful to see people dedicated to make a good natural product.
I bought this beer in a super market in Denmark for the price of 2,5 Euro for a 330 ml bottle at 5%.
A dark and appealing yellow colour in this unfiltered beer.
The head is very fine, yellowish tiny bubbles, just a thin layer that stays.
A lovely aroma with a sweet fruit to it.
Medium CO2, taste is composed of the wheat, the fruit and a after taste that evens out in freshness with a long after taste.
Overall rating 82 / 100
