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fermentation is not interrupted and the beer has time to mature, only after the maturation the alcohol is carefully withdrawn.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

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.

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.

Riktigt imponerad för att vara en alkfri. Perfekt för den som vill vara nykter och samtidigt lasta i sig weiß. I dofter skulle jag fasen inte sätta en blindprovning mot en vanlig tror jag. Så bra är den i doften. Smaken är ju lite tunn och vattnig som väntat, men fortfarande helt ok smak.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy golden with a large white head with small bubbles. Aroma has sweet grain and banana, cloves and wheat. Taste is good, the spiciness is there and a light bitterness together with the sweetness. Body is light.

Wonderful wheat malt aroma with hints of toast bread, tropical fruit, and banana. Watery taste of sour dishcloth and old bread. More lambic than weißbier.
