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.

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.

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - APR 26, 2011
Bottle. Hazy orange with a big stable white head. Aroma of wheat, fruit esters and some graininess.. Flavor is sweetish, wheaty, fruity with some graininess, banana, some citric notes, a bit of bread and a slightly drier finish with a spicy note. Fluffy mouthfeel. Very good for a non-alcoholic beer, better than some of the regular Weizens I’ve had.

lesifflebiere (1397) - 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.
