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.

Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! </> Cloudy pale amber, creamy head. Estery banana and cardboard in the aroma. Light bodied with soft mouthfeel, drying out to a bit of emptiness. Quite drinkable with some refreshing qualities. Pretty good non alcoholic weizen.

Beerhunter111 (23256) - Beerland, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2014

2.7
Koelschtrinker (22064) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Typisch alkoholfreier, nicht gerade angenehmer Geruch. Süßlicher, etwas hopfiger Antrunk, die penetrante alkoholfreie Note kommt kurzzeitig leicht durch, ist aber glücklicherweise schnell wieder verschwunden.Im Mittelteil ist es aber dann auch wässrig, nur die minimal süße Note kommt durch. Süßlich-herber Nachgeschmack. Für eine Alkoholfreies definitiv gelungen! Test vom 10.6.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,8,8,7,10,8 - 8,35
