4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 I am giving the annoyingly high rating of a 4.7 simply because I’m so pissed at what I see as a bias against non-alcoholic brews, which I need to work to offset. That said, I think it’s hard to deny that this is an OUTSTANDING non-alcoholic brew. It doesn’t taste exactly like a hefeweizen...more like a beer with hints of the hefeweizen aromas--but this is top-notch as non-alcoholic brews go, so I do think it deserves the 5. I have no complaints. It has a full body, rich and complex aroma, with some hefeweizen characteristics like the fruity tones. There is none of the unpleasant sourness that plagues some poorly-executed Hefeweizens. And the beer has a crisp texture...very refreshing while also being very flavorful. A winner on all counts!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Top of my list for non-alcohol. Big fluffy lasting head. Dark hazy yellow. Unfinished wort and grain smell. Abit worty and chewy. Faint banana. sweet. Very interesting for a non-aclcohol. Lots of rough flavour. Banana quality grows a bit through the bottle.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
50cl bottle from Tesco, Reading. Typical weissbier appearance, cloudy straw with a thick billowing white head; but an unusual aroma of damp malts and stewed cabbage; strange malty flavour, not at all what I was expecting, and missing the usual weissbier characteristics.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml bottle. From Germany.
Hazy golden colour with fluffy white head.
Not much of an aroma. Very weak... grainy I would say. Strange flavour. Not very Weißbier-like. Sweet and kind of artificial flavour. A bit banana. Unfortunately not very successful for a n/a Weißbier.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
[500ml bottle at RISC Global Cafe, Reading] My first low alcohol beer ever. Looked promising - poured a slightly hazy gold with a large foamy white head. But it smells strangely of Heinz Tomato Soup. Initial taste is honey, but it’s soon overwhelmed by a sickly sweet artificial banana and bubblegum flavour. Leaves a lingering hint of tomato soup. Bizarre and disgusting - made me feel slightly nauseous. Avoid.
