COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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top fermentation is not interrupted and the beer has time to mature, only after the maturation the alcohol is carefully withdrawn.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.

caesar (7393) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Bottled from Mitra Bunnik, BB 16.01.15, medium sample, poured into a tulip glass. Aroma has wheat, some banana, some clove, slight citrussy, slight cardboard. A bit more refreshing and fruity aroma and less caramel malt than the franziskaner alkoholfrei. Taste is slight bitter, slight sweet. Less wort like and less malty, but also a bit thinnish, but more refreshing. I think I prefer this one slightly, as it is more easily drinkable, but the malty character in the Franziskaner also gives it more body and flavor.

ruigo (3080) - PORTUGAL - MAR 30, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle from Ruppert (Luxembourg). Nice hazy yellow aspect with thin white head. Aroma resembles a pilsener. But nice flavour. Overall, a nice alternative when alcohol can be a problem.

visionthing (5596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 29, 2014
50cl bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Moderate wheaty, fruity, yeasty with banana and hint of citrus. Moderate sweet with nice fruity flavours and a light sourness. A bit thin and watery, but tasty for an alcohol free beer.
