Celis white

GS6A2684

Wit beer can be tracked back to being brewed in the middleages in the village of Hoegaarden in Belgium. There have been many breweries, fires, closures etc and the the brand have been bought and sold numerous times between large breweries in new times. The man behind Celis White brewed in Texas, America was also the owner of Hoegaarden before he sold it and moved to America.

I bought this wheat beer in a local wine shop in Odense, Denmark at the price of 3,2 Euro for a 250ml bottle at 5%.

The unfiltered yellow beer fills the glass with a orange glow.

Fine white head, not very big, but it stays.

Sweet aroma with fresh fruit and light hops to it.

A bubbly drink with fresh light hops and fruit, a little yeast in the taste. A pleasant after taste.

Schneider Weisse – Tap 7 – Unser original

GS6A2759

Georg I Schneider was the creator of the Schneider Weisse Original recipe, which is still used today. Two-hundred years ago, wheat beer could only be brewed by the Bavarian royal family in their breweries. In 1872, King Ludwig II discontinued brewing wheat beer due to a steady decline in sales.

Georg I Schneider was sold the exclusive right to brew wheat beer. Today, Georg VI Schneider is running the brewery in Kelheim, which the family acquired in 1927 and has remained the Schneider Weisse brewery to this day. It is the oldest wheat beer brewery in Bavaria. Wheat beer has been brewed there without interruption since its founding in the year 1607.

I bought this weissbier in a local supermarket in Odense, Denmark at the price of 3,5 Euro for a 500ml bottle at 5,4%.
