Munkebo mikrobryg – Årvågen sommersolhverv


Munkebo mikrobryg is a micro brewery with a capacity of 13.5 hectolitre. Located in Munkebo, Denmark and was founded in 2013.

I bought this witbier in Vinens Verden in Odense, Denmark at the price of 5 Euro for a 330 ml bottle at 5,2%.

Beautiful yellow to orange colour to this unfiltered beer, compact and with large particles from the sediment.

The head is small with fine bubbles and disperses into a thin layer.

A welcoming mix of fruits in the aroma with a slightly dominating citrus.

Balanced CO2 from a beer that flows thick. Bitter fruits that ends off with a light sweetness in the after taste. Price is a bit high compared to bottle volume.

Overall rating 80 / 100

Paulaner Hefe-Weissbier non-alcoholic


This wheat beer comes from the Paulaner brewery located at Munich in the southern Bayern.

Paulaner have been making beer here since 1634, the brewery was established by the Minim friars of the Neudeck ob der Au cloister. The order and brewery are named after the founder of the order, Francis of Paola. The brewery have since the start changed hands four times and today is owned by a holding company where a venture company along with Heineken owns it.

Beautiful yellow and orange beer with a heavy unfiltered feel to its flow, there is also a lot of sediment.

Big head with a fine top that disperses into a thin layer.

Good fruit aroma and some wheat comes in over it, a little too subtle.

Medium CO2 that gives a good life to the wheat and fruit notes, a little to the sweet side in the overall taste and a tad too thin with the risk of being a little watery, overall a soft taste that lacks a little bite to overcome the lack of alcohol to play into the picture. However it is still a good non-alcoholic weissbier.

Overall rating is 76 / 100

Gutmann Hefeweizen Non-alcoholic


The brewery was founded in 1707 when Fürstbischof Marquard II build a brewery in his castle in Titting, Bayern, Germany.

The brewery closed down in 1759 and was reopened in 1786 by Fürstbischof Johann Anton III. The brewery became part of Bayern in 1808 and in 1821 it was sold and was now privately owned. The brewery have been in the hands of the Gutmann family since 1855.

I bought this beer at a Bayern web shop at the price of 2,5 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 0%.

A very hazy and compact beer with colour going from yellow to almost brown and with a heavy sediment.

A large head with fine bubbles on top, about 5 mm stays for the duration of the drink.

Light fruit aroma but aroma is dominated by the wheat.

Low CO2, some fruit taste but caramel and sweetness dominates. Not bad for a non-alcoholic beer.

Overall rating 75 / 100
