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 ;)

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2014 Looks like a nice Weizen. Yellow-orange colour, hazy liquid and big white, stable foam. The aroma isn?t too bad. There are hints of banana and apricot. Carbonation is good. There is only a short to non-existent finish. Quite good for a non-alcoholic beer. My favourite one after running and on warm summer days.

Bouteille de 330ml chez Marché des Brasseurs. Blonde très trouble surmontée d’une épaisse mousse crémeuse. Arôme fruité de bananes et malt. Au goût c’est malt, bananes et levure, le tout un peu trop sucré pour mon goût personnel. Assez ronde en bouche, bien gazéifiée sans être pétillante, elle laisse un goût de blé et levure somme toutes assez plaisant. Ma note est en comparaison avec les autres bières sans alcool que j’ai eu le malheur de goûter par le passé...celle-ci pourrait se mesurer avantageusement à certaines bières alcoolisées.

33cl bottle. The national sports drink of germany haha. I like na weissbeirs, they still retain beer qualities and gives you energy. It’s what plants crave.

shaynsawchuk (491) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
330 mL bottle. Pours hazy apricot with a dense white head of uneven bubbles. Banana, peach and clove on the nose, earthy hop. Slightly musty. Sweet with a touch of fruity acidity and nominal bitterness. Creamy on the palate with above average carbonation. Not a bad NA. Makes mowing the lawn at lunch time easier.

Bottle. Most alcohol free beers are awful. This one wasn’t bad. Hazy, gold color. Nice head. Aroma was banana, a little spice. Taste was sweet, banana, spice.

Cerbier (222) - - JUL 20, 2014
0,5l Flasche. Orangenes trübes Weizen mit schöner Schaumkrone. Riecht etwas nach Hefe. Im Geschmack süßlich malzig, leicht fuchtig nach Banane. Bei heißem Wetter ist es gut gekühlt genießbar.

RexTalionis (2461) - FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Hazy orange with a massive white head. Grainy notes, some bananana in aroma. Sweet wheat in taste mostly. A bit watery, but on a warm summer day this could be quite ok.

Erzengel (2645) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2014
Trüb gelb im Glas. Das Bier startet süßlich-hefig. Leichte Bananennoten, mild-weich und recht süß. Die penetrante alkoholfrei-Süße wird vom süßlichen Grundgeschmack etwas kaschiert - das gelingt aber nicht vollständig. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, süßlich hefig-bananig.
Mir viel zu süß, aber von Grundkonzept her vollmundig. 7/10/6/7

I figured this would be some strange stuff and it is. It looks more or less like a run of the mill hefezen, cloudy w/ a big head of medium bubbles. It sort of smells the part too w/ a mild banana note in the nose. Whatever process they used to get the alcohol out of this though seems to have done some weird business w/ the phenols in this. Where you would normally expect cloves and bananas, you get an almost smokey character out of this. It is not chemical tasting or anything, just a bit odd.The texture is at least pretty close to the highly carbonated creamy texture appropriate to the style so points for that. I cant say this is terrible but other than the curiousity of drinking an acohol-free weizen, there is no real reason to try this.
