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.

Overall rating 68 / 100
