Harboe – H for hvede

GS6A9360

Harboes Bryggeri is located in Skælskør, Denmark and was established in 1883. Harboes has been family-owned and managed for five generations.

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a Danish supermarket at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 330 ml can at 5,0%.

Light yellow and unfiltered beer.

Big head with a fine structure and top.

Light sweet fruit and wheat aroma.

Good CO2, a sweet wheat that is somehow too sweet and flat. Dull and boring taste.

Overall rating 70 / 100

Moosbacher Weissbier

GS6A8689

Scheuerer Breweries was founded by Lorenz Scheuerer in 1887. The family owned brewery has been handed down four generations to its current owner and Brew Diploma-Engineer, Erhard Scheuerer. The brewery is located in the Oberpfalzer region in the little town of Moosbach, only a few kilometers from the Czech border.

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,0%.

Beautiful and deep orange colour to this hazy beer.

Large head with a rough structure.

Medium aroma with a sweet and wheated fruit.

Good CO2, pleasant sweet fruit, no hops that shines through. Not complex enough in the taste.

Overall rating 77 / 100

Aldersbacher Kloster – Weisse

GS6A9021

Aldersbach Brewery was first mentioned in a ruling of Count Albert von Hals to the monastery’s monks in 1268. Then, it still used to be a small brewery that mainly produced beer for private use. In 1803 Aldersbach was affected by secularisation. Both brewery and monastery were sold. In 1811 the family of the Baron von Aretin bought the two buildings.

The brewery was restored around 1900. The first wheat beer was first brewed in 1928. Management, administration and shop is still in 2016 run by the von Aretin family.

Nowadays, the brewery presents a total of 13 different beers in its product line. By constantly enhancing its products and modernizing the brewery, for instance, the new brewhouse and bottling filling line make Aldersbach Brewery a successful and modern medium-sized enterprise.

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,5%.

Beautiful light yellow and only slightly hazy unfiltered beer.

Large and rough head, a thin and fine top stays on.

Good sweet aroma with a fresh play of wheat.

Good CO2, powerful fruit that is just splendid and sweet. Long after taste.

Overall rating 85 / 100

Landgraf – Weizen Dunkel

GS6A8640

There is not much to find out about this brewery, the brand itself might be from 1970. Landgraf title is a old term for Inns in Germany where you could eat, sleep and drink. It is produced for the beer retailer Hausler Getränkemarkt in Germany.

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,0%.

Brown to deep orange in the colour.

Large head with a fine top.

Weak fruit and caramel in the aroma.

Low CO2, dark caramel, notes of liquorice and a little too light in the fruit taste.

Overall rating 73 / 100

Franziskaner – Dunkel Weissbier

GS6A9020

The Franziskaner brewery can be dated back to 1363 where it is described in texts as the brewery town at monastery near Munich, Germany. In 1841 a huge and completely  new brewery was build in Lilienberg, a town outside Munich. In 1922 the Spaten brewery fusioned with the Fraziskaner brewery and they became Spaten-Franziskaner-Leistbräu AG. In 2005 the brewery was bought by the large InBev cooperation.

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,0%.

Brown and unfiltered in the look.

Medium head with a fine top, quickly disappears.

Lovely sweet fruit aroma.

Good CO2, light sweetness and good fruit.
