2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5l bottle brought from Germany by and shared with ogivlado (thanks!)
Poured a nice warm full yellow murky body with a medium sized thick chalky white head that went away slowly. The nose is strange, a bit sweet, with notes of rice crackers and chalk. The taste ends up being better than expected and the mouthfeel remarkably pleasant. Caramel, chalky sweet rice crackers, maybe some cloves too. There is a light sour note to liven up everything. Actually quite drinkable and if forced to drink n/a beer (even if I can’t imagine such a situation), this would be one of my 2-3 top choices!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours cloudy with a large head. Mashy aroma. Decent flavour and body, but if I need a non-alcoholic beer there are still better offerings in the Pilsener style.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50cl Bottle from Aktiv Markt, Trier. Light hazy light amber colour, dense and fluffy white head, looks good. Aroma of sweet malts, dough, some wheat, yeast. Flavour is sweet, dough, cookies, light wheat, some yeast, short watery bitterness in the finish. Body is thin, mouthfeel is watery. Still quite full of flavour and not at all that bad imo, keeping in mind that this is a NA beer.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle brown, 500 ml.
Appearance: Pours nice, healtyh looking orangy red and moderately and exclusively naturally carbonated body, body is very yeasty and cloudy visually, head is very dense, frothy to creamy, initially huge and very firm what results in a very slowly decrease to a medium size. Head is lasting till the end of the beer and leaves a very good lacing, head is originally beige to bronze in colour.
Aroma: Very nice and full aroma of highly fruity and perfumy hops with notes of candies, cookies, flowers, dough, freshly baked cake, powder sugar, white sugar, notes of cane sugar, distinct and noble aroma of wheat, some notes of rye, gooseberry, pleasant yeasty accents well pronounced not only in terms of wheat but also barley grains, pineapple juice. Very good and really outstanding aroma as for a Low Alcohol Weizen, reminding me very good Belgian Pale Ales.
Flavour: Very light and smooth Low Alcohol, pleasant and mild yeasty texture, notes of red apple, sweet carrot juice, well pronounced notes of wheat and some barley malt at the background, a light bodied beer with a good balance os sweetness, smoothness and gentle dough-like saltyness, notes of gooseberry and pineapple juice, some notes of clove and banana, some rust and minerality in water profile, finish duration is short to medium.
Palate: Body is light to medium, texture is watery but quite smooth, coarbonation on palate is moderate, finish feel is kind of flat, light with no additional impressions being worth noting.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Wheat malt and yeast aroma - just a slight hint of banana. Cloudy straw color with moderate head. Yeast and wheat malt flavor - again just a hint of banana/peach. A decent enough NA but disappointing that it had very little of the fruity flavors that make Franziskaner Hefe such a good beer.
