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fermentation is not interrupted and the beer has time to mature, only after the maturation the alcohol is carefully withdrawn.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

Nice foamy white head with some dry cereals aroma. Nice opaque yellow gold color. No real flavor but 50cl is a bit too much to finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

De color ambarino-cobrizo turbio, al no estar filtrada, es algo mas clara que la Weihenstephan Hefe Weiss clsica, poseyendo un aroma especiado donde se encuentran notas que recuerdan a tonos herbceos, lpulo y cereales acompaando a una espuma densa y cremosa como si de merengue se tratase que corona de forma impecable la copa. Su sabor est mas que conseguido, recuerda inconfundiblemente a cereales, especias y lpulo estando perfectamente basada en su hermana mayor de 5,4% cosa que a muchos les llegara a sorprender e incluso confundir, pues si se catase con los ojos cerrados, tendran la impresin de estar tomando una de trigo con su correspondiente contenido alcohlico. Con una textura muy similar a las clsicas hefe weissbier, respetando el sabor pero an a falta de algo cuerpo, cumpli mas que de sobra con todas mis expectativas. No es lo mismo, obviamente, que las otras con alcohol, pero su sabor intenso a la vez ligero no hizo que aorase las del tipo normal del gnero.

50cl bottle at home. Hazy yellow with a medium white head. Medium body with low carbonation. Sweet banana flavour with some acidic notes. For a low alcoholic its pretty good.

tricksta_p (3936) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2016 Pours a hazy yellow/golden with a big white head. Aroma of wheat, not much else. Very watery. Yet its pretty drinkable for a low alcohol beer. Just very, very dull.
