Bryghuset Møn was established in 2005 by Ivan Luffe at the island Møn in Denmark. Svend Austel from Bamberg, Germany was the original brewer behind the 9 original beers. The brewery was acquired by David Jensin og Thomas Stecher in 2012. The master brewer is today Jacob Bille Carlsen from the Harboe brewery.
I am not entirely sure where I bought this biodynamic beer. Somewhere on the island Langeland, Denmark. It costs around 4 Euro for a 330 ml bottle at 4.7% alcohol.
Good looking thick yellow color of this hazy unfiltered beer. The foam head is small.
Weak and at times a metallic scent in the aroma.
Powerful CO2 levels, soft and fresh in the taste. Neutral fruit notes that does not shine through. Too weak on the palate.
Hjort Brewery was founded by Carsten Hjort in 2015, in Nørresundby, Denmark. He started out brewing beer from his basement at home. Later on, some of the more popular beers are put in production at larger breweries.
I bought this biodynamic beer somewhere. I forgot. Its a 330 ml glass bottle at 5.1% alcohol.
Beautiful deep orange in the color with some red notes to it.
No head or foam worth mentioning.
Lovely sweet wheat aroma with powerful notes of fruit from the wheat.
Good CO2 level, good wheat and fruit combination, balances really well. Slightly darkness in the after taste, a bit too thin, could have been more powerful. That is some of the only critique there is.
Thisted Bryghus was founded in 1908 where it bought up the broke Thisted Aktiebryggeri that had existed for a mere 10 years before it had to close. The brewery is mainly owned by local people holding shares in the brewery. Thisted bryghus is located in Thisted in Denmark.
I received this Danish take on a weissbier, as a present form family, for my birthday. It is a biodynamic beer in a 500 ml glass bottle at 5% alcohol level.
It is a beautiful deep orange color with a medium sized head of foam. The head disperses quite quickly.
The aroma comes off with a medium strength wheaten and slightly sweet fruit notes.
Full bodied and balanced in the taste. Goes from wheat to banana in notes. A good overall sweetness and goes into a more regular wheat aftertaste. Not too sweet and not too bitter.
This biodynamic wheat beer comes in at 4.8% alcohol in a 500 ml glass bottle. It is brewed and bottled at Skanderborg Bryghus, but branded by North Retail. I was given this wheat beer as a birthday present by family.
Good head with fine structured foam. White and fluffy, staying for a good while.
Light yellow in the color with a solid haziness to it. Deeper yellow towards the top of the glass.
A, less than, medium strength aroma that comes off with notes of wheat and sweet fruits. Slight hints of bitter hops.
Good CO2 level with a fresh and bubbling wheated fruit in the taste. A little to the thin side and not bitter at all, but not sweet either. It lands somewhere in the middle and could perhaps be too anonymous. Good balance and refreshing.
Biodynamic / organic beers always get a plus more in my book. I want pure beer.
I bought this bio-dynamic wheat beer from a supermarket in Odense, Denmark at the price of 3 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,8%
Slightly hazy and yellow in the colour.
Large head with a fine foam on the top.
Good wheat and fruited aroma with pleasant notes to it.
Good full bodied taste that is in balance. Hops and wheat joins up in a nice play. Slightly too weak CO2. Some bitterness in the after taste. Biodynamic beer holds a special place in my heart, just next to the German Beer Purity law.
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.
Brewery Dupont originates back to 1920 where Louis Dupont was given the old farm-brewery Rimaux-Deridder dating back from 1759, from his father Alfred Dupont. Louis had not children and his nephew Sylva Rosier. Sylva’s son Marc Rosier managed the brewery from 1964 to 2002. Since 2002, Olivier Dedeycker has succeeded his uncle Marc Rosier as the Director of the family brewery and therefore represents the fourth generation of this brewers’ family.
I got this unfiltered wheat beer as a gift, it was bought in a beer shop in Copenhagen, I do not know the price for this 250 ml bottle at 5,5%.
Light yellow colour and only slightly hazy, not a beer large enough to be served in a weissbier glass.
Medium head with a rough structure but a fine foam on top.
Good fresh and fruity in the aroma, with a good scent of banana to it.
Powerful CO2, good fruit, fresh, wheat and some banana in the delicate, not to powerful taste. A good and fresh wheat beer. Bonus points for being organic / biodynamic.
The first written reference is from 1628 with the mention of the inn “Zum Goldenen Lamm”, that translates to The Golden Lamb, located in Neumarkt, Germany.
In 1800 the brewery was bought by the Ehrnsperger family and in 1845 the brewery Neumarkter Lammsbräu was founded. Since 1977 they have been brewing bio-dynamic beers and developed the concepts up through almost 40 years and have received numerous awards for their caring for the environment.
I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 0,0%.
Good looking hazy orange beer.
Large head with a fine top.
Medium aroma with a scent of wheat and vegetables.
Good CO2, a fresh wheat taste with a light fruit, more in the after taste. Bio-dynamic / organic beer. But still a off from missing alcohol.
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 unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 6,2%.
Beautiful orange colour and very coarse haziness.
Small head that is gone in a short moment.
Fresh and hoppy aroma with a sweet fruit to it.
Medium CO2, flowery like a spring field in peak, sweet fruit and some slight bitter hops in the after taste. Organic beer which is a plus but it is also in the sharp end of the flower taste scale.
