1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
16.9 oz bottle. Well, I finally gave this a try. I feel bad for people who have to resort to N/A beer for whatever reason. This taste nothing like a hefe (is that what they were going for??), and really just has this overly sweet, yet skunked malt flavor to it. A small hop singe on the end, but really just wants to make me pour it out.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2007 Thanks to Degarth for hooking me up with this, if only to tick off another style.
12oz bottle. Actually pours a decently golden colored body with a two finger, sudsy, bubbly white head. Looks like beer at least. Some decent lacing on the glass as well. Aromas of skunk, hops, malts, wet cardboard and some grassy notes. Certainly a unique smell. The taste is......unique. Malts, some wheat notes, but very odd. Very, very odd. Can’t really put it into words, but something about this triggered my gag reflex. Palate is watery, finish is non existant.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pours a slightly hazy light golden with an active fizzy and quickly dissipating white head. Light grain and wheat malt aroma. Fairly sweet and light unfilterd flavor with a trace of citrus. Gotta give an extra point just cuz I like saying "I had a ’Hef-N-A’ "
Thanks Jordan for sharing this one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Clear yellow pour with a ginormous white head. Nose is musty and malty, grainy and sweet. Taste is overtly sweet with hints of honey, malts, and a crisp tanginess. Fun to try, but I wouldn’t want this to be my "go to" beverage. Thanks Jordan.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Gold, white head, not very hazy, lots of lacing. Nose of sweet malty, unfermented sugar and light skunky hops. The flavor is a bit wheaty, but buttery and malty. Thin body. Finishes grassy, definitely NA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is very much like powdered malt. Like in malted milk balls. Some lighter grain accented notes as well. The body is a clear golden color and the head is three fingers thick, fluffy, white and quite nice looking. Sweet malt with a thin body and more light grain notes. The mouthfeel seems to firm up a bit as I continue to drink getting nearly creamy feeling. But the finish tastes a bit watery. It tastes more like cereal grains and malt powder than a wheat beer, but I actually kind of like this. Is that sad?

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
This slightly hazy and non-alcoholic wheat has a nice head. The aroma is sweetish with notes of wet grain/malt. The flavour is thin, but the malty and grainy notes are clear. It’s stale, and in the long run the wet grain is way too much for me...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden colour. Big cottony head. Honey pastilles in aroma. Bit sweet in all thinness, but the flavour of honey pastilless miht make it feel not awfully thin. No phenols.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml bottle. Firm and mostly lasting near-white head. Misty, well corbonatied pale yellow/golden body. Bread and cookies to the nose. Vague notes of dry hops and sweet citrus. Modest flavors of sweeitish grain. A little fruitiness detected. Thin body. Not that bad for a n/a, but lacks the freshness of ’real’ Weiss.
