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fermentation is not interrupted and the beer has time to mature, only after the maturation the alcohol is carefully withdrawn.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

thanatosti (1531) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2015
50 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Albert heijn, Culemborg. Hazy orange with a huge white head, looks like a great German weizen. Aroma is like a weizen also, banana, wheat and some citrus. first sip is promising but further on it’s evident that this alkoholfrei lacks body and taste. Still a good effort for a alcoholfree beer but it was hard to finish the bottle.

Piw (881) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - APR 14, 2015
Gezapft vom Fass. Naturtrüb und dunkelgelb. Grosse Schaumkrone. Nur leichtes Hefearoma und Bananenaroma. Fällt geschmacklich doch recht stark zum original ab.

dnicolaescu (2132) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 28, 2015
BOTTLE (backlog 2014-07-19). Nothing like wheat beer - no tartness, no yeast, no esters. Not even body. Just tomato juice, cardboard and water - just like most non-alcoholic beers.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a frothy white head. Banana and watery aroma. Thin palate. One of the best NA I’ve had.

Vandenberq (38) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Am Erdingerstandard gemessen schon ein bisschen wässriger, dafür aber auch raybananiger. In eine Holzkonstruktion umgesetzt, müsste es aus Birke sein und eine Hohlkammer enthalten. Palatal keine Einwände. Fehlender Alkohol macht sich ja schon immer nicht ganz unschmerzhaft bemerkbar, und zwar hier folgendermaßen: Es kommt angerollt, trara, und dann klappt es sich zu beiden Seiten einfach nicht aus, sondern sackt stattdessen fast dramatisch ab. Man verliert an Boden, da beißt die Maus keinen Faden ab. Bei Hefe fängt einen aber wenigstens das Hefige immer ein bisschen auf. Kann man sich dran festhalten ungefähr wie an einer Handtasche. – Zur Flasche: Klappentext wieder mal die reinste Touri-Infotafel, internationaler Frühschoppen. Vorne recht ordentlich, gediegen und aufgeräumt, keine Faxen und nicht zu viel Gold.

FunkyF (980) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2015
Flaska från SB. Ljust bärnstensfärgad med tjockt vitt skum. Kryddig doft med skumbanan och koriander. Ganska torr och lättdrucken.

TychoJames (1118) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2015
Flaska systembolaget. Blek orange och disig vätska med vitt fluffigt skum. Fuktig, fruktig och örtig doft i klassisk vetestil. Gräddig smak med äpplemos och örter. Möjligvis lite kummin. Len och vattnig munkänsla.

Bottled from Mitra, Baarn. Hazy golden colored, very nice head. Very spicy nose, banana, wheat. Sweet and somewhat sour flavor, banana and spices again. Very nice non-alcoholic wheat, among the best of its kind.

jookos (5740) - FINLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle, from bottle. The familiar weihenstephan weiss banana, spicy clove,yeasty esters. Lot lighter mouthfeel than the normal one, but pretty nice, flavour-wise.
