Bottle, free rating at Frankfurt airport lounge
Compared to the normal Hefeweizen, the alcohol-free has a darker, golden color, and itís 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.

Bottle @ Mega Bavarian Beer Tasting in Schlitz. Hazy golden appearance with an off white head. Great head retention. Old grainy, extract, bready, somewhat yeasty flavor. Dull bready, shitty wheat flavor.

Bottle, 50 cl. Hazy yellowish golden with a frothy white head. Unfortunately the aroma isnít as nice: Breadish, slightly farty, sweer wheat malty. Taste is sweet wheaty, iron, unripe banana. Short sweet cardboard finish, light watery body.

edpeg (851) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 19, 2012
Pours deep orange reddish cloudy with visible chucnks of yeasty sediment. Head is creamy and white. Aromas are wort, grains, malts. Palate is medium bodied, oily, slick. Carbonation is mouthful, soft. Taste is sweetish, little fruity with light watery flavour. Overall decent low alcohol Weizen with good amount of palate and flavours left. One of the better non-alcholic I have tasted, still mild and worty compared to the real thing Hefeweizen.

flemmingwillum (1098) - Nysted, DENMARK - APR 11, 2012
Rating #720, bottle from a Rewe in Berlin as far as I remember

Itís a really beautiful appearance - unclear hay-yellow coloured with a bit of yeast fragments and incredible stable, thick, cream-like head. Lacings as well. Aroma is hay and fresh spicy hops as any hefe - but nothing more than that. Very fresh. Flavor is lacking some of a hefeís most prominent characters as the delicate yeast (hefe) is completely gone, and the substitute is some kind of rubberish flavor. On the other hand, this beer is still very fresh and hay-like with some malts, and a quite obvious citrus flavour. Even though itís alcohol free, itís still a very refreshing drink that tastes more like beer than a lot of other low alcohols. Palate is as expected - very thin. A nice thirst quencher that I wouldnít mind pouring down the throat at a garden party if I was supposed to drive afterwards - but itís a bit annoying that itís such a thin beer.
