COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taste doesn't need alcohol. Thanks to the gentle process for removing alcohol, which we developed in the brewery in collaboration with the TU Munich-Weihenstephan, our non-alcoholic yeast wheat beer offers you everything you expect from a premium beer. And you don't have to be worried about driving.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - FEB 19, 2010
Bottle. Hazy dark orange colour with a medim-sized white head. Wheaty aroma with notes of banana. The flavour is wheat, banana and malt. Good for a non-alcoholic beer but I’d rather have the original version.

TaxiDriver (1440) - Stadland, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2010
Bottle. A sour-sweet aroma, not really pleasant. The head is large, white and creamy, the body is clear and golden. The taste is not as strange as the smell. It starts light sour, then it gets softer and sweeter before the short mild finish arrives. A creamy body which is rather light with a normal carbonation.

MikeKeller (780) - Kemi, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2009
Bottle from Systembolaget. Beautiful hazy orange beer with a tall foamy head. Aroma is quite weak but you can find some yeasty weissbier aroma from this. To my suprise there is some flavor in this alcoholfrei version, banana and wheat. Watery mouthfeel. Not bad for an alcoholfree beer.

A bottle from local K-Market 0.5L. Mild wheaty and bananey nose. Quite foaming one. Hazy pale yellow slightly orange colour. Sour and slightly bananey taste. Mild hoppiness. A very nice non-alcoholic beer!

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2009
Bottled. Really hard to describe this beer. The original hefe is one of the best beers in the world, so no comparison can be done with this. Hazy orange with solid, big head. Aroma holds pretty much phenols, along with the second or third runnings from a mash. It’s a bit metallic and hard. Flavourwise, it’s big on Co2, which gets a bit too much when there’s no matching alcohol or body. Phenols are there, as in metal and overboiled tea. Very little fruitiness. Naah, I wouldn’t say this is very good. But which low alcohol beer is?

Gr0ve (2114) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2009
500 ml bottle. Beautiful cloudy orange. Tall fine-laced fluffy head. Slightly floral and bready aroma. Light-bodied. Wheaty flavours. Slightly soapy, but with the classical weissbier flavours. Just a little banana. The cloves are there, but less than in their regular weissbier. Finish is watery and with a lightly dry hop bitterness. Has less body, but overall I think this is a pretty good non-alcohol weissbier.
