1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
"Isotonisch, vitaminehaltig, kalorienreduziert" - a clever way of upgrading a (near to) non-alcoholic beer to a health drink... Very thick, foamy but regularly shaped, off-white, tightly lacing head remaining completely closed, atop a pure, warm ’old gold’ coloured beer, practically clear initially but turning lightly and equally hazy with sediment. Aroma of raw green cereals and raw green cabbage, soaking wet cardboard, damp old cloth, dusty old chicken food, very old dry hay, soap, old medicine (some kind of pills that have been lingering in your closet for years), plastic - anything but inviting. Initially neutral, minerally onset, quickly acquiring a sourish graininess and some thin wheat soapiness, but the iconic banana ester that usually typifies anything Weizen-like, lacks completely - in fact, this tastes just like a bland alcohol-free pale lager with wheat added, which is basically what it is. Carbonation - artificially added of course - is on the softish side. Mouthfeel is extremely soapy, likely an attempt to evoke a Hefeweizen-like effect, but in this case it becomes all plastic-like and glueish and utterly unpleasant. Pale, ’raw’, sourish and vaguely sweetish (in fact corn-like) graininess and thinned out wheatiness around it make up the core of this ’beer’ and show the way to a finish where some welcome, ’deep’ bitterness is established, though feeling a bit harsh and chemical as well - I doubt if this bitterness comes from hops alone. Unpleasant ’green’ graininess and soapiness linger. I bought this just for the tick, but I had a couple of non-alcoholic German Weissbiere before and those were, all things considered, still drinkable; this one, however, is utterly unpleasant, harsh, chemical, very grainy in a crude and ’bare’ kind of way and extremely soapy. Apart from looks, I can find no redeeming features here. Has nothing to do with Hefeweizen. Enough said, swiftly on to the next.
