1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Frothy white good mostly lasting head. Ugly yeasty aroma. Short ugly finish. Very watery palate. Avoid.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Voor een alcohol vrij wit bier, vond ik dit een lekker biertje. Zoete smaak.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, picked up at Systembolaget. Tall, fully diminshing platina blond head. Body is foggy, pale straw. Lots of banana esters here. Or maybe not? Smells more like perfumed Banos (banana chewing candy). A pretty nice whiff of soft wheat malts, though. Light in body of course, soapy mouthfeel. Artificial sweetened banana flavor. Watered down, slight acidic ending. My my my...

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle) Yellow colour, slightly hazy, with frothy white head. Fruity, wheaty nose with notes of citrus, honey and white bread. Fruity, wheaty taste with citrus (lemon, mandarin), white bread, floral hints of jasmin and white bread. Thin body, with just a touch of sweetness. Quite refreshing and better than expected.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. High creamy long lasting white head. Thin looking hazy light yellow body. Dusty banana coriander lemon aroma. Mild sweet creamy smooth lemon flavor with low carbonation and a long sweet aftertaste. Impressive for a non alcohol beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not half bad for a low alcoholic beer. Might be the added acacia extracts. Weak in the mouth, though.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lata, from a local Super Best store. Cloudy yellow colour, white ehad, lively. Sweetish citrus like lightly spiced wheatish aroma. Thin mouthfeel. Mild flavour, soapy, wheatish, light spice like touch. Quite good for a 00 brew.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear pale yellow color with medium steady head. Aroma is spices, citrus, apricot, some cheese, grass and some floral notes. Flavour is spices, citrus, some sweet fruits and dry hay. Very refreshing and rather pleasant non-alcoholic beverage, even though there is some weird mustard flavour on the background. Surprising.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Opaque yellow with a small head. Sweet candy nose with wheat and apparently also acacia extract (no idea what that smells like). Flavor continues to be candy-wheaty, and reminds me of Witbier mixed with Sprite. Quite light body, but not bad for a NA. Quite a lemonade, like Two Dogs, but identifiable as a wit. Witbier seems to be a great style for producing NA beer substitutes - maybe even better than Hefeweizen. I’ve had probably around 20 of these during the summer, which is rare for any beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy, murky yellow color, white head. Coriander-banana wheaty, quite natural witbier aroma. Light to medium bodied. Quite sweet, lots of banana, some spices. Lacks many bad off-flavors of NA beers. But lacks also alcholic kick and backbone. Empty version of quite useless beer style, but not bad as a NA beer.
