Schlossbrauerei Stein – Dunkel Weissbier

The first mentions of this brewery is the Stein Tavern from 1489. The castle was built in 1845 and most of the brewery and castle was destroyed during 2nd world war. The brwery is today ran as the same company that founded in 1938, Schlossbrauerei Stein Wiskott GmbH & Co.

I bought this organic dunkel weissbier from a German webshop in Bayern as a part of a large lot, single price came down to 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 4,9%

Beautiful brown colour with red and orange play to it.

Medium sized head that has some colour from the dark beer, super fine foam on the top.

Light fruit aroma with a dominant wheat scent.

Good CO2 that balances well with the dark and sweet fruit, finishes in a pleasent fading after taste and has just a slight bitterness in the end. The beer being organic is a plus as always.

Overall rating 80 / 100

Løkken Bryghus – Badehus – Witbier

Løkken brewery dates back to 1867 where the brewer Anders Christian Andersen bought a old shipping warehouse in Løkken, Denmark. Løkken Bbrewery is today a micro brewery and has a yearly production of 700 hl. beer after their own recipes.

I bought this witbier on a 330 ml bottle at 4,6% from a wine shop in Odense, Denmark at the price of 2,5 Euro.

Yellow in the colour with a somewhat grey porridge tone to it.

No head or foam worth mentioning.

A anonymous aroma and almost too light to notice.

The flat CO2 with a dominating wheat in the taste is only slightly broken up with a minimal flower note, finishes with a slight bitterness.

Overall rating 66 / 100

Mongozo Buckwheat White Beer

Huyghe Brewery is a brewery founded in 1906 by Leon Huyghe in city of Melle in East Flanders, Belgium. They have a product line called Mongozo.

I bought this organic, gluten free, fair trade white wheat beer in a 330 ml bottle at 4,8%, at a wine shop at the price of 4 Euro.

Yellow in the colour with a white touch to it.

Medium sized head with a fine structure and top.

Flowers and fruit comes off in a good composition in the aroma, suitable in strength, the flowery part is not dominant over the fruit.

Drinking and tasting starts with a relatively flat CO2, a somewhat confused impression from the flower, wheat and hops composition. One of the few things that drags this beer in the right direction is it being organic.

Overall rating 71 / 100
