Ørbæk brewery was founded in 1906 by the Madsen family in Ørbæk, Denmark. 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 was given this biodynamic wheat beer, it can be bought in supermarkets in Denmark. It comes in a 500ml bottle at 4,8%.
Yellow and unfiltered and light yellow in the bottom.
Low head that disappears very fast.
Good sweet fruit and bitter hoppy aroma with a hint of flowers to it.
Good CO2, fresh flowers, sweet fruit and a long after taste with the flowers in it. A good combination and biodynamic beers deserves that extra credit.
Over all rating 85 / 100
