Det Lille Bryggeri – Hvid Vinter

GS6A9157

The Small Brewery (Det Lille Bryggeri) was founded in 2009 in Ringsted, Denmark. It is a micro brewery that is run as a one man business by the brewery himself.

I bought this beer at a local Christmas market in Odense, Denmark at the price of 6 Euro for a 500ml bottle at 7,9%. I bought it from the brewer himself that was at the market with his products.

A thick and very hazy yellow colour, it almost seems brown in it. Very porridge in its image.

Small head with a semi fine top.

Flowered with some fruit in the aroma.

Heavy CO2, flowers, fruit and goes straight into bock style with its massive sweetness. A good fusion beer that tries to land somewhere between bock, weissbier and wit and actually succeeds in doing so. It would have been perfect with some spiced play to the after taste.

Overall rating 80 / 100

Weihenstaphaner – Vitus

GS6A8698

The Weihenstephan Abbey was funded by the Benedictine monks in 725 and in 1040 they established what is now the oldest still operational brewery, in the world. The brewery is now owned by the state of Bavaria and is closely related to the technical university of Munich where studies on brewing and beverage manufacturing is a graduate program.

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 7,7%.

Good looking hazy yellow beer.

Gigantic head with the finest of fine on the top.

Powerful aroma that explodes with fruit, banana and sums up the whole body of the beer.

Low CO2, full bodied fruit that is very heavy, extremely sweet in the after taste. There is no sign in the taste of the high alcohol content.

Overall rating 79 / 100
