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.

dEnk (3734) - 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 (3424) - 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)

Tjoxen (167) - SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2012
Hazy yellow with quite a head. It’s quite familiar with the original Hefeweissbier but alot weaker of course. This is the best non alcohol beer I have tried so far and its my first choice when driving. The score is based on comparision with other non or low alcohol beers.

kryon (1333) - SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2012

EithCubes (4749) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle by 13.06.13. Worty nose, pours a cloudy orange-golden with a large pillowy off-white head. Harshly astringent taste, much more bitter than expected, some peanut butter yeast struggling under the yeast slime. Watery light body stings of harshly crisp mineral water. Swing and a miss.
