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.
The supermarket group in Denmark called COOP have re-released their brand “Pokal” in a new version, where it originally was a cheap and low quality beer, it is not targetted the growing market for special brews.
This organic wheat beer comes from a private owned micro brewery located at Koege in the Denmark. The micro brewery is from 2011 and is run by two brothers that also own it. They try to target a smaller market with their special beers and especially their organic beers.
I bought this biodynamic 500 ml bottle at 6% from a Danish supermarket at the price of 1.3 Euro. Good price for biodynamic.
Slightly orange tones in the yellow colour. Unfiltered with a light haziness.
Completely white foam on the big head, rough structure underneath a fine top.
Hoppy aroma with a delicious sweetness from the fruit notes and wheat.
Good CO2 level accompanying a fresh fruit taste. Good balance between the wheat and hops. Ends in a slightly bitter after taste.
