Brasserie Du Bocq – Blanche de Namur

The first beer from Brasserie Du Bocq was from 1858 when Martin Belot, a farmer in Purnode, Belgium started brewing. The Brewery was incorporated into a limited company in 1949. The production reached 104,000 hectoliters in 2015.

I bought this 4.5%, 330 ml bottle of beer in a local supermarket in Odense, Denmark at the price of 2.5 Euro.

Light yellow and white in the colour.

Large head with a rough structure and a fine foam top.

Sweet fruit, some flowers and spiced hops in the aroma.

Low CO2, sweet taste with a light and fresh after taste. Slightly hoppy in the end.

Overall rating 80 / 100

GB – Hvede Ale

The Gourmet Brewery was founded in 2005 in Denmark, today the two originally owners are no longer a part of the brewery and it is owned by the Harboe brewery group.

I bought this large wheat ale from a supermarket in Denmark, it is a 750 ml bottle at 5,0% that cost 4 Euro.

Good looking yellow colour with a bright and white shine to it.

Grand big head with a rough structure and a fine foam on the top.

Perfumed in the aroma, almost too much, slightly wheated tones.

Powerful CO2 along with sweet flower and wheat notes are the first impressions this presents, easy to drink, fresh but with a short finish.

Overall rating 76 / 100
