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.

czar (4604) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
pours hazy if not cloudy very pale golden with a frothy eggshell white head showing good retention and very nice lacing. crisp peppery wheat, light welcoming banana and other light phenolic esters, very herbal and grassy, chalk and other minerals, hint of wheat acidity, pepper, dusty yeasty traces. light carbonation, light body - watery, dry and crisp spicy-clovey-herbal-grassy finish. very interesting non alcoholic beverage, akin to krombacher weizen. pretty good for what it is.

Zlotta (73) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2014
Hazy golden-yellow with huge white, foamy and stable head. Looks just as beautiful as a regular Weizen. Weak aroma of bananas. Taste is slightly sweet and medium sour. Lively carbonation with sparkling mouthfeel. Not as good as Krombacher for example. Boring.

Pours hazy golden. Nice steady white head. Smells of banana, hay, yeast. Taste of unripe banana, clover and some cardboard. Low bitterness. A non alcoholic beer with some character, I like it!

Bottle from The Wine Emporium 080914. By far the best alcohol free beer I have had. Pours with a huge head, smells good and tastes better.

Marstonlad (452) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Pours cloudy golden with a big frothy head. Aroma is fairly similar with normal hefeweizens as fruits and wheat malts feature,though some differences appear too; it is slightly soapy. Taste is unfortunately too light and mild. It is initially light sweet, later drier. Wheat malts, soap and bubblegum form a light bodied, watery mix. Overall fairly fresh but not at all at the same level with hefeweizens. Decent for a non alcoholic beer, not much else.

Bottle, in berlin. Nice orange hazy color and a white lasting head. Wheat, hay, dough, unripe banana, citrus and notes of cloves. Some cardboard in the aftertaste. Aroma is really nice.
