I bought this Christmas wheat brew at Carlsen’s Kvarter, a import beer beer bar since 1972, in Odense, Denmark. For a draft beer of 500 ml at 6.0% the price was 9 Euro.
Beautiful looking beer, orange and brown in the colour.
Small head with a fine foam.
Aroma comes off with a hops and christmas cookies to it, a bit to the weak side.
Faint wheat notes, powerful full bodied alcohol and warmth, becomes better as it goes from cold to room temperature. Let it rest for a bit if you buy this and get it served cold. But generally it is too neutral and should make more of itself.
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.
Mikkel started brewing in his kitchen in 2005 and developed some new and innovative beers that quickly gave him international reputation.

I bought this beer from a wine shop in Odense, Denmark at the price of 3,5 Euro for a 330 ml bottle at 5%
Very pleasing look with a orange and red tone in the colour.
Big and rough head with a fine foam top.
Medium strength hops in the aroma aroma with a bit of play from a sweet and flowery scent.
Okay CO2, starts out with a faint sweetness that is quickly taken over by hops and it finishes in full flower almost into bitter hops. Not much wheat over it.
Huyghe Brewery is a brewery founded in 1906 by Leon Huyghe in city of Melle in East Flanders, Belgium. They have a product line called Mongozo.
I bought this organic, gluten free, fair trade white wheat beer in a 330 ml bottle at 4,8%, at a wine shop at the price of 4 Euro.
Yellow in the colour with a white touch to it.
Medium sized head with a fine structure and top.
Flowers and fruit comes off in a good composition in the aroma, suitable in strength, the flowery part is not dominant over the fruit.
Drinking and tasting starts with a relatively flat CO2, a somewhat confused impression from the flower, wheat and hops composition. One of the few things that drags this beer in the right direction is it being organic.
Volkan beer brewery is located on the island Naxos in the city of Santorini, Greece. What is special about the Volkan beer is that the water is filtered in a unique Santorini basalt filter unit which consists of volcano lava stones, Santorini honey and citrus from Naxos.
I received this beer as a gift, it was bought at a beer shop in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is a 330 ml bottle at 5%.
Beautiful and thick flowing yellow going to orange beer.
A small head with a fine top but else a rather rough structure.
Suitable aroma, fruity and sweet, but with a dominating flowery scent to it. Slightly spiced.
Low CO2, a very sweet beer, it is infact extremely sweet, sugary and it is just too much, not a pleasant drink. Its use of honey in the brewing process is not a hit with me. Tastes like a 8-10% beer trying to hide its alcohol with honey.
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.

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.

I bought this bottled 6.5% 500 ml unfiltered wheat beer in a local super market in Odense, Denmark at the price of 4.5 Euro.
A good looking yellow beer.
Small head with a semi rough structure, a tiny fine top.
Sweet and heavily hoppy in the aroma.
Low CO2, bitterness, sweetness, ends off in a slight fruit and hops. Hides the high alcohol percentage very well.
