COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This specialty stands out because of its aromatic and fresh Franziskaner Weissbier taste. Rich in vitamins and trace elements, this Weissbier is excellently suited as an isotonic thirst quencher. Brewed in accordance with the Bavarian Reinheitsgebot of 1516.

On tap at The Odysseus in Harrislee, Germany. Pours hazy light amber with airy white head. Clear aroma of grain, hop and yeast. Sourish taste of grain. Rather watery, with some sweetish, grainy finish. Nothing impressive, but I have tasted worse low alc brews.

Huge white head. Very astringent aroma. Fruity, but also watery taste. Wheaty palate.

#818 Hey, es schaut zumindest nach nem echten Weissbier aus! Orange-trüb mit viel Schaum. Das Aroma ist nichtssagend, aber immerhin leicht hefig! Der Antrunk ist naturgemäß dünn. Geschmacklich etwas malzig-süß mit schwach hefiger Struktur. Als Weissbier aber zumindest ansatzweise zu erkennen. Wenn ich an das Erdinger Alkoholfrei denke, ist das bleifreie Franziskaner geradezu eine geschmackliche Perle! Test vom 4.11.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,8,9,7,9,8 - 8,35

500ml bottle. Most alcohol-free beers don’t taste as good as their alcoholic equivalents. This is one of the few exceptions. A very good alcohol-free beer!

Bottle: In my defense, it’s 9am at the Frankfurt airport! Nice malt aroma, taste is thin but thirst quenching. Good Breakfast beer!

Transferring my data before I used to rate at Ratebeer. I’ll add a more detailed description as I drink it again.

MichaelAwesome (3558) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2012
0,5 l bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in dark orange to brown. Huge white head with a small orange background. Carbo is a bit less than usual at other weizen. Aroma of some citrus and yeast. For a nonalc beer and for a weizen great in taste. Superb beer in that kind of class.

Bottle, free rating at Frankfurt airport lounge
Compared to the normal Hefeweizen, the alcohol-free has a darker, golden color, and it’s only hazy; creamy head. The aroma has a profile of cereals and bread, revealing its true nature. The body is light, it has a light flavor of bread and cookies, and low to mild bitterness.
A pleasant choice in the NA domain.
