0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Nice cloudy orange colour with huge head. The beer starts strange bitter, absolutely non-weizen-typical. Nearly disgusting. The mainpart is indescribable bad, muddy, dry, slightly sweet, grainy, …
The aftertaste is long (which doesn’t make it better), muddy, dusty, grainy, strange sweet.
--> how can someone brewing absolutely great "normal" beers release something that awful like this?

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours out in a dirty, unclear orange colour with airy steady head and medium body. Nose of yeast. Taste of old yeast, old bread and acid. Awful, unpleasant. Not drinkable.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Zu Beginn glaubte ich noch an etwas Früchte und leichte Säure, doch ein paar Sekunden später hatte es sich offenbart. Dumpf, holzig, dünn und ein bisschen eklig. Neue, neee !

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Head is initially large, frothy, white, fully lasting.
Body is hazy medium to dark yellow, unfiltered.
Aroma is moderately malty (cereal, horse feed, wort), with a light note of banana taffy.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, husky/raw.
Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation.
I do enjoy trying non-alcoholic beers now and then to see what can be achieved with so little...and I still drink Bitburger Drive occasionally to this day. I’ve always thought Weizen offered the best chances for non-alc to be tasty, but alas, this one is not good. It looks great, mind you, with a big lasting head and hazy/unfiltered body, but that’s where it ends...very raw feedbag/wort odor and equally raw in the mouth. Mouthfeel is quite nice, rich and fluffy, but that can’t save the beer as a whole.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
It’s unclear yellow-golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has a weird mix of notes of mash, grain, butter and vegetables, and the sweet flavor has the same notes.
