5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Ok, this is beer? I am drinking, ’a beer’, this is a ’beer’, Just getting my head around this one..... it’s 0 alcohol, but it tastes AMAZING, its fruity, its sweet, its beery, its mellow, its wheaty, its a belgian wit, but with NO alcohol. Non alcoholic lagers and bitters always fall down on taste, this one? £2 for 6? my night is sorted. This is actually the best beer i’ve tasted for a while, and when I say a while, I mean, A WHILE, (check the last time i rated a beer, 4 years? hello.). And if it’s not gonna give me a headache, nor make me smash any windows, at £2 for 6, £4 for 12, £8 for 24?? I think I just found my new evenings entertainment, for 1/4 the cost 4x the taste and 0 the alcohol. Absolutely delicious. ++to Bavaria, whoever you are.

W aromacie nuty pszeniczne.
Piwo dość pełne w odczuciu.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Non-alcoholic witbier, probably inspired by AB InBev’s Hoegaarden 0.0. Milky, irregular, snow white head, lacing; colour cloudy yellow with greenish hue, looking a lot like a witbier indeed. Aroma simple and sweet but actually a bit more pleasant than I had expected, with hints of honey (apparently acacia honey has effectively been used), sugared yoghurt, industrial apple juice, wheat, soap, white bread, powder sugar; when warming up, less attractive odours of damp cloth and plastic appear. Sweet onset, clearly artificially sugared, honeyish, sugared apple, with a wheaty sourishness bringing refreshment, a bit chalky and soapy as well, strongish carbonation enhancing the wheat sour factor; evidently (very) thin body, with no real finish to speak of: nothing new happens, though a very vague echo of hops remains detectable, but otherwise the initial flavours just fade away in instants. Only the chalky powder sugar sweetishness cloys a bit. Not the worst alcohol free beer I tasted, kind of delivers what you can expect from it, and the honey does add a distinctive touch, but it still remains more of diluted soda pop version of witbier than a believable non-alcoholic alternative to the real thing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Kolor: jasny zółty - zmętniony,
Piana: biała, całkiem spora na początku,
Smak: taki nijaki, bezpłodny, bez wyrazu, taka lemoniada wyprana ze smaku, takie słabe cytrusy i jakieś owoce.
Jako piwo bezalkoholowe piłem lepsze, jako napój piwnopodobny ok.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a pale yellow color with tiny haziness. A small white head slowly disappears. Very sweet and fuity aroma, wheaty. The taste is sweet and fruity. It actually has a juice quality to it. Not the best one, really.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours fairly clear yellow with a very little head. The aroma displays some sweet fruitiness, spiciness and caramel - not totally bad but seems a bit artificial, fruit candy is the first impression. Taste is as sweet as the aroma suggested but does contain some of the wheaty and spicy elements that can be found in a witbier. Fruit candy and lemonade are the prominent flavors though. The palate is light and a bit too flat, in my opinion, fizzier carbonation would have suited the other elements better. Overall this was one of the best low alcohol beers that I have encountered.

Citroengele kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt zoetig, snoep, banaan. Smaakt beetje naar sinas. Geen bier. Niet verkeerd.

Bottle. Easily the best alcohol-free beer I’ve sampled to date. It has a great nose akin to Hoegaarden and looks and tastes like it too with a very pale blonde appareance and a small head. The wheat is strong and produces a very pleasant lingering banana flavour.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
30cl bottle at home. Pale yellow with a white soapy head. Light body with ditto carbonation. A sweet and synthetic NA beer. Refreshing but not too good.
