Herslev Bryghus – Hvedeøl

GS6A6951

Tore Jørgensen founded Herslev Bryghus in 2004 in the buildings belonging to the old farm Toftegaard in Herslev, Denmark. He has been involved in wine production and micro breweries since 1998.

I bought this unfiltered organic wheat beer from the supermarket Irma in Copenhagen, Denmark at the price of 4 Euro for a 500ml bottle at 5%.

Orange and yellow in colour and a regular unfiltered haziness.

No head at all, any foam disperses instantly.

Delicious and sweet fruit aroma, a real inviting pleasure.

A lot of CO2, a very active beer, good full bodied fruit taste and only a slight wheat and bitterness to the after taste. A very good organic wheat beer!

Overall rating 89 / 100

Gutmann Leichtes Hefeweizen

GS6A6677

The brewery was founded in 1707 when Fürstbischof Marquard II build a brewery in his castle in Titting, Bayern, Germany.

The brewery closed down in 1759 and was reopened in 1786 by Fürstbischof Johann Anton III. The brewery became part of Bayern in 1808 and in 1821 it was sold and was now privately owned. The brewery have been in the hands of the Gutmann family since 1855.

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

A deep unfiltered beer with a lot of sediment making for a very dense look of orange, so dense that it looks almost grayish.

A small rough head.

A deep wheat aroma, some fruit to it and for some strange reason a tad of pouridge…

Good CO2, light and watery in the taste, weak fruit with a medium after taste.

Overall rating 70 / 100

Indslev bryggeri – Frederiks Påske

GS6A6497

 

Indslev brewery was established in 1897 by Frederik Christian Rasmussen. At some point the brewery was closed down, but in 2005 restored to former glory with brand new production equipment. The re-opening was made possible by Anders Busse Rasmussen, grand grand nephew of Frederik Christian Rasmussen.

I bought this beer in a local super market in Odense, Denmark at the price of 4 Euro for a 500ml bottle at 5,5%.

Shining yellow colour with a white bottom.

White medium head with a fine bubbles on top.

Flowery aroma with a deep sweetness.

Good CO2, hoppy, flowery, fresh, sweet wheat. Spring in a bottle with maybe a tad too much bitterness.
