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.

Of course, not comparable to the real wheat beers (including alcohol) but in the non-alcoholic genre this tops my list.

Ik ben geen liefhebber van pils. Goed, als het buiten 30 graden is, ik heb net drie uur gewandeld en dorst, dan wel. Doorgaans doe je me er geen plezier mee. Dan alcoholvrij bier. Alcoholvrij bier is als pils, maar dan veel minder lekker. Gelukkig ontdekte ik bij toeval (vriendin zwanger) dat er ook lekker alcoholvrij bier is. Dat zijn de Duitse weizenbieren. Die gaan er prima in. Weihenstephaner, Franziskaner en Erdinger. Een uitkomst voor als je eens moet rijden of gewoon een keer geen alcohol wil. Ze doen wat mij betreft zeker niet onder voor pils, in tegenstelling zelfs. En het is zeker lekkerder dan een gewoon alcoholvrij bier. Welke van de drie het lekkerst is weet ik nog niet, daar kom ik op terug.

Not a bad Alkoholfrei Hefe-Weissbier, but it isn’t amazing like the Paulaner version.

Bottle, shared with Parket. Blonde, hazy beer, large white head. Aroma is grainy, malty and sweet. You can smell here already this is a non-alcoholic one. Taste is OK at first: nice grainy and malty, hoppy background, but with a bit of a weird aftertaste, which makes clear this is a non-alcoholic one. However the taste is similar - but definitely less good! - than the original one, the beer flattens after a while and gets boring. Nice one for a non-alcoholic, but certainly nothing special about it either.

Kristall-König (2415) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2011
Die Farbe steht dem alkoholfreien Weizen ganz gut, lediglich der Schaum gibt schnell klein bei. Geruch wenig fruchtig und wirkt etwas lasch. Geschmacklich bietet das Bier zu Anfang eine säuerliche Komponente, die sich im wässrigen Gesamtbild alsbald auflöst. Das alkoholfreie HW von Franziskaner ist ziemlich süffig, ansonsten jedoch wenig ersprießlich.Test vom 3.4.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Parket (577) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2011
bottled, I didn’t want the ’alkoholfrei’ one, but had it in my cellar so I had to drink it. White unclear colour with nice foamy head. So far .. very sweet smell. Taste: some grainy sweet taste. Nothing special but ok for a low alcohol.

Bottle. Cloudy golden orange, with white head. Sweet, and the kind of strange wheat cracker taste, grain, and a bit of banana. I didn’t like it very much, but it is an alc free.

Koelschtrinker (12210) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Typisch alkoholfreier, nicht gerade angenehmer Geruch. Süßlicher, etwas hopfiger Antrunk, die penetrante alkoholfreie Note kommt kurzzeitig leicht durch, ist aber glücklicherweise schnell wieder verschwunden.Im Mittelteil ist es aber dann auch wässrig, nur die minimal süße Note kommt durch. Süßlich-herber Nachgeschmack. Für eine Alkoholfreies definitiv gelungen! Test vom 10.6.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,8,8,7,10,8 - 8,35

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - FEB 12, 2011
23/01 0.5 l bottle somewhere from Graz. It poured hazy brownish body with medium sized head. Crappy cabbage and ugly cornflakes aroma. Metallic cornflakes flavor, really unpleasant, some chalk reveals wheat malt. As it wasn’t enough, it needed to be fuller in body because of all that wheat, resulting in long unpleasant metallic plus stinky socks finish. Maybe even I got the bad bottle but wouldn’t like to try again anyhow! Could be worse, I guess.

Bottled 500ml. -Hazy yellow/orange coloured, medium sized white head, sweet nose. The taste is very nice for n/a beer; light wheaty, caramel and rice crips. Even not so watery as I’ve expected. Pleasant n/a surprise.
