Rasmus40 (10841) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle from Getränke Hoffmann, Harrislee. Hazy golden with a big and lasting white head. Aroma is sweet, wheaty, odd yeasty and fruity. Flavor is medium sweet. Sweet finish. Watery. 090613

Metalchopz (2257) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
Single brown bottle from Marché Omni. Pours a hazy golden-orange colour with a huge creamy, off-white head that lasts forever (it seems), leaving dirty foam lacing. Wheat nose with some honey and hints of bananas. The taste is where you can finally see that this is a low-alcohol beer, as it is weaker than the rest. Still decent and refreshing with notes of fruits, wheat. Probably the best looking low-alcohol brew on the market, that is overall pretty decent.

MikeKeller (834) - Kemi, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle from S-market, Kemi. Beautiful light orange coloured hazy beer, big off-white frothy head. Sweet wheaty aroma and taste with herbs. Some artificial sweetness usual to low alcohol beers. A bit watery too but not still bad.

BiereLuc (883) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
Une blanche bien trouble avec un typique goût de banane et un peu de miel au nez en arrière-goût. Parmi ce qui est disponible au Québec dans la catégorie «bières sans alcool» – actuellement – c’est celle que je préfère. On sort du carcan «petite blonde allemande» et on oublie presque que l’ivresse n’est pas de la partie.

lesifflebiere (1242) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2013
Mousse abondante et odorante ; odeurs très fruitées, de bananes et d’agrumes entre autres, avec aussi un côté guimauve. Liquide trouble, couleur pêche. On ne soupçonne pas l’absence d’alcool à prime abord, jusqu’en bouche, où il semble en effet manquer une pièce du puzzle. Ce n’est pas réellement un défaut en soi, les saveurs présentes suffisent à compenser ; ceci dit, elle possède quelques défauts importants (gomme balloune très présente, ainsi que les bananes et une sensation de succédané de sucre) qui l’éloignent considérablement de l’excellence. Pas mauvaise, surtout froide, et son alcool nul ne l’handicape pas vraiment, mais il y a encore place à amélioration.

Idiosynkrasie (3708) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2013
500ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with huge, firm, creamy, lasting, white head. Spicy yeast aroma, some wheat, cautious peach-like fruity hints. Taste is minimally sweet wheaty, slightly watery, soft carbonation. Better than several regular Weizen.

mathieuc (1225) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2013
Nice banana phenols emanate from a cloudy yellow beer topped by a big and creamy white head. I’m digging to find some cloves notes but apparently can’t find any. Mouthfeel is creamy with soft carbonation, really nice! Taste is sweet but not too sweet with flavors of bananas and hay. Quite subtle but really satisfying for a low alcohol beer.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a veiled whitish straw with a resilient white head. Aroma is pils malt, light smell. Taste is fruity, oranges, tropical fruits (bananas, pineapples, mangos). Fine, subtle hops. Not too bitter. Lingering fruit notes. Average body, soft mouthfeel. Probably the best alcohol free beer I’ve had.

Minderbinder (1740) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle 500ml. Pours hazy golden with good white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is of bananas, weizen yeast, wheat, fruits. Taste is of fruits, bananas, yeast, wheat, sligth weird acidity. Palate: ligth body. Overall: Very refreshing. Impressive offering, at 0% abv. Certainly the best I had.

czar (4261) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 29, 2013
pours hazy golden with a tall creamy white head, excellent retention and lacing - ok, impressed already. wheat, very hitn of acidity, classic german yeast (with slightly less esters than alcoholic versions), floral-grassiness, yeasty - dustiness?. soft carbonation, light body - even some texture, lightly sweet and herbal-citrusy finish. would even say it’s underrated ;)
