Our golden-yellow, alcohol-free wheat beer tastes like a premium wheat beer: tangy, fresh and full-bodied, with hints of cloves and honey as well as a fine yeasty spirit. The unique wheat beer taste is achieved by a method developed in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich-Weihenstephan: the top fermentation is not interrupted and the beer has time to mature, only after the maturation the alcohol is carefully withdrawn. It is a first-class thirst quencher after sports or a good companion to light summer dishes, sweet and sour dishes, or fruit sorbets. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Martinus (4540) - Baarle-Nassau, - MAY 24, 2012
Light golden colour, white head. Quite yeasty aroma, bread, light fruit, quite light overall. Light sweet flavour. Light body, short finish.
Not bad for when you still have to drive. Quite light, but refreshing.
(From 0,5L bottle @ local pub, Nijmegen)

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2016
Hazy gold, highly active, foam explosion, 4 fingers island head that last for around 10 minutes, good lacing. Flavors of wheat, lemon, banana yeast, clove, floral spices. Good thickness, balanced finish, although a little lighter than the alcohol version. Lingers with a bread and clove feel. Overall excellent quality craft for a low alcohol beer. Almost the exact same original flavors. Filling, delicious, and super fresh.

zvsn (1679) - ISRAEL - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle at Biergarten 1040. Hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is fruity, earthy and soapy. Sweetish, mild fruity and spicy notes, some banana and citrus, clean but quite bland. Light-bodied, watery, high carbonation. Ok, but not very interesting.

mathieuc (3400) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2016 Pours a lightly cloudy golden with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of banana and wheat sheaf. Taste is dry with a light tartness. Light banana and bready wheat. Body is light and carbonation high and prickly. A bit too light for an hefe. A fair alcohol free beer but I must say I’m a bit disappointed as I expected quite a bit more.
