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fermentation is not interrupted and the beer has time to mature, only after the maturation the alcohol is carefully withdrawn.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

Pours a golden yellow slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells lemon and typical weizen. Tastes watery and lemon. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

Train tasting Bamberg Jolly Day 1 24/01/14. Cloudy orange pour with a halo of white head. Aroma is worty, bready and hint of banana. Flavour is light bread with a touch of acid, some sickly sweet. Palate is harsh carbonaic acid that attacks the tongue. Bile.

Day 3 of the post Xmas Bamberg Jolly, bottle at Weihenstephaner Am Dom - Freising, 26/01/14. Hazed orange amber with a good sized off white head that retains well. Nose is aspartamic, grain, paper. Taste comprises grain, straw, dirt, vague citric drizzle, aspartame. Light bodiment, watery, drying cessation to the little flavour that there was. Poor effort for style, despite what it was I expected something a little more clever in terms of getting a bit flavour out of the product from Weihenstephaner!

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.
