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.

Marduk (4070) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 5, 2015
500ml bottle. Cloudy orange color. Medium size, thick and frothy head, stays. Sweet, banana, yeast, slightly metallic and very faint minerals in aroma. Banana, sour grains, dry dusty hops, lemon in taste. Bland starchy aftertaste. Slick and slightly buttery mouthfeel. Crisp carbonation.

SinH4 (1131) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2015
Hazy orange color with Weizen white head. Aroma is first the sweet malts, but once you get behind these, the bananas and spices become present. Taste has the typical caramel-bready malts,. Weizen texture. At first it?s weird but after a few sips it?s a pretty good alcohol free Weizen.

Beardbeerman (272) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2015
Pours a clear pale straw topped by a quickly fading off white head leaving no lacing. The nose is somewhat grainy and herbal. On the tongue, the herbal hops are too much at the forefront. Crisp and acidic, it gives off skunky notes. Not a fan, but a good option. Cheers!

arsol (782) - NORWAY - JUL 15, 2015
Tåkete gul farge med masse hvitt skum. Lukter av banan, hvete og sitrus. Smaker akkurat passe av banan. Karboneringen ok. Noe av det bedre alkoholfrie øl du kan få tak i.

Leini (1360) - SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2015
500ml bottle. Hazy amber-ish body with a huge white head. Bananas, wheat and metallic notes. Way too light palate.

DavidAust (41) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2015
Oh colour me disappointed! I love Weihenstapher, and after all the positive comments regarding the Alkoholfrei (both here and elsewhere) I decided to buy some for a party as a few guests were driving and therefore not partaking in alcohol. Poured well, nice aroma - very similar to the full version. But the taste - oh so disappointing. Slight taste of beer and the rest was soda water. I knew it would lack some flavour - but this!!!? hardly worth calling a beer. Tip down the drain stuff. Yuck.

Nevalainen (272) - FINLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Color is pale with white head. Aroma of banana. Taste is clear weissebier, but watery. Still a ok beer even though it’s alcoholfree.

Dervock (646) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle - pours hazy yellow with small white head. Aroma is banana, spice and a bit yeasty. Taste is slightly astringent up front then spice and dry. Medium palate. Hard to believe it’s alkoholfrei.
