Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2013
Bouteille 500ml. De couleur dorée foncée et voilée. Nez de grains de céréales, moyen-léger de levures fruitées (bananes, notes d’agrumes) avec des notes épicées (coriandre), de blé et de pain. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse. Léger goût de levures fruitées (léger de bananes vertes, notes d’agrumes) aux faibles traces épicées (coriandre) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de céréales fraîches et légèrement sucrées, léger de pain frais avec des notes de blé puis en finale l’o retrouve des notes herbeuses. Post-goût moyen-court, composé d’un léger goût de levures fruitées (notes de bananes, traces d’agrumes) avec de faibles notes de houblon herbeux.

JohnRMurdoch (4270) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 15, 2013
500ml bottle @ Pizza Hut in Berlin. Cloudy amber brown with massive foamy head. Banana wheat aroma & flavour. Spicy aftertaste but watery and insipid, lacking bite. OK for an alcohol free beer.

skortila (5161) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2014
33cl bottle, small sample. The aroma has banana, citrus, some grain. Hazy, yellow-orange coloured beer with a firm, white head. The taste is quite sweet, citric, has some banana, just a little artificial. Yhough overall pretty nice for an alkoholfrei beer.

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.

Cerbier (666) - - 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.

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.

Mökillä. This could be quite ok regular hefeweizen and as a low alcohol beer it was really good!

tmoreau (3571) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Shared 11.2 oz. bottles poured to snifters, and sampled after the standard Weizen, showing the same, cloudy, orangey/gold appearance, with modest, off white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was lightly dank, a hint of vegetable, and more greenery & grass than fruitiness, with some subtle banana & clove. Soft textured, with fair spritz to the effervescence, and flavor that was rather thin & watery. Non offensive, but I think I’ll pass if it is offered again.

Beer5000 (5824) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2016
330 ml bottle. Cloudy orange body with a big, stable, creamy white head. Aroma has wheat, banana, cloves etc. like any other weissbier. Flavor is a bit sweet, but not overwhelming wheat, banana, cloves and yeast. Medium to thin body and a bit short in aftertaste. Somewhere between average and boring as a weissbier but decent for a N/A beer. Never had a really nice version of a N/A weissen actually, they tend to be weak in flavor at way too sweet.
