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.

MichaelAwesome (6297) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, 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.

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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle, 50 cl. Hazy yellowish golden with a frothy white head. Unfortunately the aroma isn’t as nice: Breadish, slightly farty, sweer wheat malty. Taste is sweet wheaty, iron, unripe banana. Short sweet cardboard finish, light watery body.

edpeg (889) - 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.

Rating #720, bottle from a Rewe in Berlin as far as I remember

It’s 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 hefe’s 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 it’s alcohol free, it’s 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 wouldn’t mind pouring down the throat at a garden party if I was supposed to drive afterwards - but it’s a bit annoying that it’s such a thin beer.

mile (3726) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 5, 2012
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty – grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, some cardboard and faint banana. Body is light, malty – lightly grainy and sweetish flavor, some cardboard. Finish is short, malty – lightly grainy with faint wheat and sweetish. Not good - that’s it.
