Albani – Citra Witbier – Belgisk hvedeøl

I bought this 500 ml can at 5,2% in a Danish supermarket at the price of 2 Euro. 

Albani Brewery is located in Odense, Denmark and was established in 1859 by three local business owners and of these the most famous is Theodor Schiøtz. Albani expanded in Odense and also bought up another nine breweries in Denmark over the course of almost 100 years. In 2000 Albani became a part of Royal Unibrew and remains there today.

Light yellow in the colour, a few heavy pieces of sediment floats around but generally you can see through it.

Medium sized head with a fine structure and top. The foam stays on the beer for a good while with a thin suitable layer.

Powerful citrus and flowery aroma, a note of sweetness to it.

Low CO2, sweet at first with all the fruit but that quickly changes when the coriander and citrus fruits kick through along with the bitterness of the hops.

Overall rating 76 / 100

 

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

E.C. Dahls Bryggeri – Lamo Wit

E.C. Dahls Brewery was founded in 1856 by Erich Christian Dahl in Trondheim, Norway. In 1966 the brewery merged with Aktiebryggeriet at Lademoen, where it is still located today.

I bought this Belgian inspired wit from Oslo Airport in Norway, the price was 4,5 Euro for a 330 ml bottle at 5,2%

Filtered beer with a light yellow colour and an ever so slightly haziness.

Small head with a rough structure. A thin layer of fine foam stays on the top.

Medium strength aroma that has a real delicious sweet fruit to it. Subtle but very inviting.

Powerful CO2, fresh, fruity and a tiny bit on the thin side. Shows no signs of bitterness or soapiness as some wit beer can. A good beer that is easy to drink and tastes great. After taste is faint but yet pleasing.

Overall rating 84 / 100
