3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle purchased at Les Marchants de la Bière in Sainte-Thérèse (Quebec) on May 8, 2015. Hazy blonde, medium head. A mix of pale and wheat malt aroma, some notes of lavender. Some light banana and citrus bread taste, not too dry, little to no bitterness. A regular hefe would be disappointing, but as a low alcohol version its fairly well made!

nope. had this after and race and thought it would be the perfect quencher, a na brew from a great brew. This tasted and smelled strongly ofcereal that’s been sitting out too long, and in no way shape or form resembled a hefe.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the oldest brewery in the world, a fine example on how to brew alcohol-free beer.
Pours pale golden with a gigantic (but rapidly vanishing) white head.
Secondary aromas prevail: bread, dough, corn flakes, toast and yeast.
Sizzling, fresh, with a full body. Slick, thick and rich. Not very long-lasting finish.

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

Gezapft vom Fass. Naturtrüb und dunkelgelb. Grosse Schaumkrone. Nur leichtes Hefearoma und Bananenaroma. Fällt geschmacklich doch recht stark zum original ab.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
