2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle @ a Russian restaurant in Berlin. Keeping off the real beer this holiday. Reddish amber brown, massive foamy head. Flowery wheaty grain aroma. Lemon grain flavour. Bitter aftertaste. A bit synthetic & bland but drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33l bottle. This is a cloudy deep dark orange almost copper colored one with a really good looking massive off-white head with great retention. The nose has much of the usual suspects in an alcoholic free beer: sawdust, wort, grains and some sweet malty caramel. It’s not bad or anything, just so predictable and typical. The mouthfeel is actually not all that thin and watery as expected, it feels as it has a little bit of resistance and substance in the mouth this and the carbonation is small bubbled and above average. The taste is pretty OK. A bit less of the woodwork/sawdust found in many of these, it has a subtle dark sweet caramel that shines through in the finish and aftertaste. Also a little subtle hint of something light sour all the way. Have to take it for what it is, and for what it is its not all that bad really. I had no problems what so ever finishing the bottle, and I can even say that if I’m forced to go all christian driver one evening (or if I have to take some soft of weird medications that I cannot take with alcohol) I could definitely buy this again. 31.07.2013

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Aroma has caramel and grain.
Taste has bread, syrup and grain. Quite smooth, bit watery. Lack of alcohol is well hidden. Best alcohol-free beer I've had so far.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, 02. 03. 2014. Pours in hazy darker amber body with huge creamy head. Aroma is sweet with fruity nose, sweet orange notes. Taste is malty, dull low bitterness, the fruit from the aroma is not in there. Balanced towards the malt profile. Body is dry, flat with fair carbonation. I hoped for more.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from REWE, Buttenheim. Hazy amber with a big, off-white head. Big, chunky cereal malts, a hint of clove and lemon zest, leading to a dryish finish. Ok for a low alcohol beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head: just like normal weisse, off-white, huge, creamy, avg retention. Colour: amber, cloudy (not as dense as normal weisse).
Aroma: grain/unfermented wort with some soury stale notes. Not much banana or clove. Taste: sourish, bread/dough, some grapes in the end.
It is certainly different from other (barley based) non-alcoholic beers, but you can still feel that unfermented wort flavour. On the other hand, that sourish stale aroma (resembling belgian sours a bit) makes it somewhat interesting in its own way.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poor, actually. I really did expect more. A bit apricot in the aroma, and tastes of wheat and some grass. Thin, flat and bad.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aka Schneider Weisse Tap 3 Mein Alkoholfreies, just tried this to fulfill my TAP 1-11 completist’s fantasies, not to indulge in its 0,3% splendour.
Like coffee with creamer instead of milk, Coke Light with aspartam, free verse, tennis without a net: I suppose this is decent for nearly ABV-free istotonic beverage and carries some basic elements that allow it to identify it as something familiar to the tastier version, but it remains a tribute to a culture fixated on Ersatz to accomodate those who hate to go without that which they have to do without.
