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.
Sanwald Hefeweissen is brewed by Familienbrauerei Dinkelacker. Their history goes back 1861 in Stuttgard, Germany. The best known family members to have run the brewery is Carl Dinkelacker, Robert Leicht, David Sanwald and Ernst Immanuel Wulle.
I bought this beer at a bar called Carlsen’s Kvarter in Odense, Denmark. This 500 ml beer at 4.9% alcohol costs around 8 Euro.
Beautiful hazy and extremely deep orange in the color.
Large head with a fine foam on top, stays for a long while.
A good sweet fruit aroma, lots of notes on the banana side. Medium strength aroma.
Whole bodied, not full bodied. Great taste of wheated fruit notes and good balance between taste and CO2.
Hvide Sande Bryghus was established in 2018 by Niels Sangill. It is located at the harbour area of Hvide Sande in a building that used to house a fish packaging factory. Niels is born and raised in Hvide Sande and returned to produce good local brew.
I bought this 500 ml bottle at 5.0% at a restaurant in Hvide Sande, Denmark at the price of 6 Euro. This is a Danish take on a weissbier.
Thick and hazy orange in the colour.
Medium white head with a fine top. Disperses quickly into a thin layer.
Medium sweetness and fruit in the aroma, no particular notes stand out.
Soft tasting experience, good CO2 levels to accompany the sweet fruit that balances with some dark notes.
A old brand that has been sold off and is now brewed on license by more than one brewery. It can also be found from the German brewery Darguner Brauerei. This beer is brewed by Harboe Brwery in Denmark.
Harboes Bryggeri is located in Skælskør, Denmark and was established in 1883. Harboes has been family-owned and managed for five generations.

Beautiful nut brown in the colour.
Medium sized head with a fine foam on the top.
Sweet medium strength fruit aroma with a hops darkness to it.
Slightly wheated in the taste. Fresh like thin darkness with classic dark notes. After taste is over as fast as it is discovered.
Ettal Monastery was founded by Louis IV, Emperor of Bavaria, on 28 April 1330. In the 15th and 16th century, the monastery had its own brewery in nearby Oberammergau. The brewery was established at Ettal Monastery in 1609. Beer has been brewed here on a continuous basis for more than 400 years.
I found this beer at a local supermarket in Denmark at the price of 1,5 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 0%.
Slightly unfiltered and yellow in the colour.
Great and big head with a beautiful foam and structure. Super fine foam on top.
Primarily wheat in the aroma with a faint fruit aroma.
Light CO2, mild in the taste with a weak but sweet wheat to it.
Carlberg brewery was founded in 1847 by J. C. Jacobsen, located in Copenhagen, Denmark. The first export of beer barrels was in 1868 due to the high quality of the beer. In 1875 the Carlsberg laboratory was founded and in 1883 it succeeded to grow a clean beer yeast and avoid uncontrollable fermentation in the beer. To this day this yeast is still used all over the world for pilsner brewing.
J. C. Jacobsens son, Carl Jacobsen, rented himself into brewery buildings owned by his father in 1871. They never could agree on the quality of the brew where the son wanted to brew faster to meet demands. J. C. Jacobsen kicked his son out of the lease in 1880 and Carl Jacobsen built the brewery Ny Carlsberg next to the other breweries. The two breweries was first fusioned 19 years after the fathers death.
Carlberg bought Wiibroe brewery in 1964, Tuborg in 1970, Hannen-Brauerei in 1988, a fusion with Tetley in 1992 and in 2000 they took over Feldschlösschen.
From 2008 there is no longer brewed beer in Copenhagen, except on the small brewery called Jacobsen where special beer of higher quality is made.
Carlsberg is among the 4th largest brewery corporations in the world.
I bought this beer from a supermarket in Odense, Denmark at the price of 2 Euro for a 440 ml bottle at 5,4%
Good looking with its thick flowing orange colour.
Medium sized rough structured head with a fine foam top.
A bit of hops in the aroma, nothing else.
Heavy and sweet with a noticeable alcohol warmth. Good play between taste notes and hops.
