COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Bavarian Purity Law came into effect in 1516. When Bavaria joined Prussia to become part of the German Empire (Deutsches Reich) in the unification of 1871, one of the conditions was that the Bavarian beer purity law apply to all of Germany. Since then it was known as the GERMAN purity Law (Deutsches Reinheitsgebot).

Incidentally, the Purity Law stated that only 3 ingredients may be used for beer: Water, Hops & Barley. Weissbeer also has Yeast added, so is in fact in violation of this law.

Franziskaner is all of my all-time favourites, so I was optimistic coming in here. Overall, it is pretty good. Good, familiar hefeweizen aroma and a lovely honey colours in the glass. Doesn’t reach that rich banana taste that the original does, but is still better than many. I would gladly drink this again.

500ml bottle. Pours with a cloudy ambe color and a nice white head. Very long lasting. Aroma of wheat, malt, yeast and hints of bananas. Taste follows the nose. Not my favourite low-alc beer.

Seifiger Kräuteryeastduft und ein angesäuerter Schlankotrunk garantieren ein hochwertiges Non Alko Trinkvergnügen. 👍 . 0,5l Buddel. PETER PANE Flensburg. 4,50.

Malzig hefiger Antrunk, der Körper ist säuerlich und sehr wässrig. Im Nachtrunk kann man maischig süsse Hefenoten schmecken. Zu lasch!

500ml bottle from Tesco - Cloudy yellow body, big massive rocky white top. Nose is gentle wheat, a bit of clove. Taste is banana, clove, a bit too fizzy. Nice for a school night.

SinH4 (6265) - Garching b. M�nchen, GERMANY - APR 20, 2017
Bottle. Medium hazy amber color with fluffy white head. Aroma is bready, sweetish, some electrolytes. Taste is sweet, vitamalz. Medium carbonation. Not much better than these non-fermented brews from the Arab countries...

Light amber, hazy, thick heavy head. Smells wheat, malts, a bit of bananas. Medium body, Classy taste, bananas, spices, a bit of perfume. Great.

biir (1602) - Berlin, - APR 3, 2017
Bottle - dark golden color, thick white head. taste is minerals, some yeasty banana, wheat malts. body is medium to watery. Fresh and thirst quenching. a bit empty in taste but not too sweetish and chemical. doable.

2.5
Grumpelmies (364) - GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Looks and smells like a Weizenbier should. Bananas, clove and yeast. It’s only missing that alcoholic oomph and the buzz. Pretty great for a low abv beer.
