Brasserie de la Senne – Taras boulba.

The history of the brewery Brasserie de la Senne starts in 2002 where the founders Yvan De Baets and Bernard Leboucq meet eachother. In 2003 they build a microbrewery in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, the former warehouse of the Moriau brewery. It was called “Sint-Pieter Brouwerij.” In 2010 they moved to Brussels and are now brewering from there 100%

I bought this 330 ml bottle at 4.5% at Carlsen’s Kvarter, a bar in Odense, Denmark at the price of some 7 Euro. It is a Belgian hoppy ale style of beer.

Uniform yellow in the colour.

Small head.

Aroma is a fresh and hoppy fruit, a bit to the weak side.

Good CO2 with a full bodied taste and feel. Good fruit and balances well with the hoppy bitterness.

Overall rating 77 / 100

Ølgaard Julehvede

Ølgaard family brew is made on license by Midtfyns Bryghus on Fyn, Denmark. It is a fairly new brand on the scene of small home brewing companies that borrows equipment on the established breweries.

I bought this Christmas wheat brew at Carlsen’s Kvarter, a import beer beer bar since 1972, in Odense, Denmark. For a draft beer of 500 ml at 6.0% the price was 9 Euro.

Beautiful looking beer, orange and brown in the colour.

Small head with a fine foam.

Aroma comes off with a hops and christmas cookies to it, a bit to the weak side.

Faint wheat notes, powerful full bodied alcohol and warmth, becomes better as it goes from cold to room temperature. Let it rest for a bit if you buy this and get it served cold. But generally it is too neutral and should make more of itself.

Mecklenburger – Dunkles Weissbier

A old brand that has been sold off and is now brewed on license by more than one brewery. It can also be found from the German brewery Darguner Brauerei. This beer is brewed by Harboe Brwery in Denmark.

Harboes Bryggeri is located in Skælskør, Denmark and was established in 1883. Harboes has been family-owned and managed for five generations.

I bought this beer from a wine shop in Odense, Denmark at the price of 2 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,4%

Beautiful nut brown in the colour.

Medium sized head with a fine foam on the top.

Sweet medium strength fruit aroma with a hops darkness to it.

Slightly wheated in the taste. Fresh like thin darkness with classic dark notes. After taste is over as fast as it is discovered.
