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.

Deze op van fles. Net zoals de meeste alcoholvrije bieren heeft ook deze een broodsmaak maar toch hint hij wat meer naar banaan in de afdronk. Niet echt een heel slecht bier maar zijn grootte broer is toch mijn favoriet van de 2.

martjoobolut (1278) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 19, 2015
0,5L bottle (from Stockmann, Tallinn). Pours hazy amber with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is very sweet, fruits, bananas, wheat. Flavor is very watery, wheat, fruits, bananas, some citric notes. Overall: as far as alcohol free brews go, this is not a bad option. As far as beers go, this is drinkable, but not much more.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Bananas, cloves, straw and fresh bread whirl about in this complex (yes, complex) Alkoholfrei Weissbier.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A stupendous head of foam settles atop the misty blond.
-This is obviously lean-bodied, but there is so much going on you tend to forget you are drinking something leaner than the real deal.
-The fresh bread lengths are something else.
-I simply can’t imagine a better low alcohol Weissbier. This one even has all the complexity of an excellent Weissbier!
-The ratings for this beer are a great example of how this site can be useless for certain beer styles.

thanatosti (1081) - NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2015
50 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Albert heijn, Culemborg. Hazy orange with a huge white head, looks like a great German weizen. Aroma is like a weizen also, banana, wheat and some citrus. first sip is promising but further on it’s evident that this alkoholfrei lacks body and taste. Still a good effort for a alcoholfree beer but it was hard to finish the bottle.

Piw (284) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - APR 14, 2015
Gezapft vom Fass. Naturtrüb und dunkelgelb. Grosse Schaumkrone. Nur leichtes Hefearoma und Bananenaroma. Fällt geschmacklich doch recht stark zum original ab.

dnicolaescu (1102) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 28, 2015
BOTTLE (backlog 2014-07-19). Nothing like wheat beer - no tartness, no yeast, no esters. Not even body. Just tomato juice, cardboard and water - just like most non-alcoholic beers.

rayvan121 (1) - - MAR 20, 2015 does not count
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a frothy white head. Banana and watery aroma. Thin palate. One of the best NA I’ve had.

Vandenberq (30) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Am Erdingerstandard gemessen schon ein bisschen wässriger, dafür aber auch raybananiger. In eine Holzkonstruktion umgesetzt, müsste es aus Birke sein und eine Hohlkammer enthalten. Palatal keine Einwände. Fehlender Alkohol macht sich ja schon immer nicht ganz unschmerzhaft bemerkbar, und zwar hier folgendermaßen: Es kommt angerollt, trara, und dann klappt es sich zu beiden Seiten einfach nicht aus, sondern sackt stattdessen fast dramatisch ab. Man verliert an Boden, da beißt die Maus keinen Faden ab. Bei Hefe fängt einen aber wenigstens das Hefige immer ein bisschen auf. Kann man sich dran festhalten ungefähr wie an einer Handtasche. – Zur Flasche: Klappentext wieder mal die reinste Touri-Infotafel, internationaler Frühschoppen. Vorne recht ordentlich, gediegen und aufgeräumt, keine Faxen und nicht zu viel Gold.

FunkyF (283) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2015
Flaska från SB. Ljust bärnstensfärgad med tjockt vitt skum. Kryddig doft med skumbanan och koriander. Ganska torr och lättdrucken.
