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.

ClubGonzo (4056) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange body with a big cloudy, "proper-hefeweizen" head retention. Nose is sweet banana tones, grains, strong clove and hints of citric peel and pepper. Though a bit more faint than the usual weizen, this sure smells like the real thing. Taste is light malt and wheat tones which come out in a cereal-like sweet way, with hints of citrus and bread crumbs. Surprisingly full (medium) body and a slightly fizzy carbonation, which adds to the freshness in a very successful way. Despite a bit thinner taste-wise, this really is a great non-alcoholic beverage - very close to a real hefeweizen and weighing in at an impressive 0,5 % ABV. One of the really good ones in the genre. *applause* :-)

Bottle shared with McTapps. It took my wife ages to drink that one as it was so boring. I was thirsty and threw that one down in a minute or two. Therefore it is still drinkable but very dull and boring. Could be a juice whith a bit of malt in it. Yeast ? Surprisingly on in nose but not in taste. Comes with 0,5 % and is very, very boring.

McTapps (4143) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Milky orange colour with steady head. Nose of light yeast. Slight taste of yeast, bananas and dough. Very thin, watery and unsatisfying beer.

Huge white head, cloudy yellow colour. Typical wheat beer aroma. I bet that you could never tell the difference if you didn’t know it was non-alcoholic. The taste is a bit milder than normal wheat beer, but still really good. Wheaty palate. Great alternative to alcoholic beer.

Beerbarella (343) - - DEC 5, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with enormous white head. Wheat aroma with banana notes. The taste is a bit watery and a tad sour. Long faintly sour finish. Definitely not the worst non alcoholic beer!

dEnk (3814) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2012
Bottle @ De Molen. Aroma had some banana, lemon and spices, seems slightly thinner than the regular, which is promising. Flavour is your basic weihenstephaner banana, clove and faint lemon, combined with some wort. Not bad at all.

erickok (3631) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 12, 2012
Tasty looking hazy body with frithy white head. Bit of banana, some yeast, mild malty, dry leaves. Wait, this was an alcohol free beer right? Okay, there isn’t a lot of spice but this is definitely one of the best alcohol ’free’ beers I’ve had! Not artificial or sweet at all, and a pretty full body still. Little bitterness. It’s not the real thing but still tasty and definitely better than a soda for sure. Beste available 0.5%- beer around here. (50cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)
