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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours dark amber and hazy with a very generous head. The nose has a hint of weizen but it’s light and very much closer to the dryness of lager. There is a hint of banana but very faint. The taste has a bit more of the creamy sweet notes you’d expect from regular weizen but not quite having the same body and sweetness. Overall, this is not bad for a non-alcoholic weizen.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass darker than exspected, nice head. Starts very mild, notes of bread and wheaty, mild-yeasty. Finish more and more moldy-malty. Nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from a German bordershop (unless my memory fails me). Sweet and flowery smell. Light body. Fairly sweet taste with flowers and a finishing touch of honey. Drinkable low ABV beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Have had a number of times recently. A nice non-alcoholic drink and I’m sure that it’s the best alcohol free wheat beer I’ve tried so far.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours hazy dark golden, with a big creamy head. Aroma Is yeasty, with some oaky notes, but with more than a whiff of metal to it. Fairly full body, with average carbonation. The flavour is just not very good, with sweet grain, and sweet and sour metallic notes all over.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours opaque orange with a short lasting off white frothy off-white small head. Aroma is toasted bread, corn, cereal, wheat, sour tangerine, yeasty. Taste is light sweet, bitter and sour. Body is light, texture is watery, carbonation is medium+. Finish is short with sweet toasted malt and a mouth-coating minerality. This toasted cereal aroma I’m not really sure of what to make of.
