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fermentation is not interrupted and the beer has time to mature, only after the maturation the alcohol is carefully withdrawn.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

Vandenberq (38) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Am Erdingerstandard gemessen schon ein bisschen wssriger, dafr aber auch raybananiger. In eine Holzkonstruktion umgesetzt, msste es aus Birke sein und eine Hohlkammer enthalten. Palatal keine Einwnde. Fehlender Alkohol macht sich ja schon immer nicht ganz unschmerzhaft bemerkbar, und zwar hier folgendermaen: 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 beit die Maus keinen Faden ab. Bei Hefe fngt einen aber wenigstens das Hefige immer ein bisschen auf. Kann man sich dran festhalten ungefhr wie an einer Handtasche. Zur Flasche: Klappentext wieder mal die reinste Touri-Infotafel, internationaler Frhschoppen. Vorne recht ordentlich, gediegen und aufgerumt, keine Faxen und nicht zu viel Gold.

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.

Bottle, from bottle. The familiar weihenstephan weiss banana, spicy clove,yeasty esters. Lot lighter mouthfeel than the normal one, but pretty nice, flavour-wise.

floydian1 (1436) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 17, 2014
From a 500ml bottle purchased at DMs, this is a surprisingly good low alcohol hefe with decent bananary esters on the nose and palate and a mild citrusy finish. Pours hazy bright golden with a loose fluffy white head that reduces quickly.

czar (8823) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
pours hazy if not cloudy very pale golden with a frothy eggshell white head showing good retention and very nice lacing. crisp peppery wheat, light welcoming banana and other light phenolic esters, very herbal and grassy, chalk and other minerals, hint of wheat acidity, pepper, dusty yeasty traces. light carbonation, light body - watery, dry and crisp spicy-clovey-herbal-grassy finish. very interesting non alcoholic beverage, akin to krombacher weizen. pretty good for what it is.

Zlotta (2928) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2014
Hazy golden-yellow with huge white, foamy and stable head. Looks just as beautiful as a regular Weizen. Weak aroma of bananas. Taste is slightly sweet and medium sour. Lively carbonation with sparkling mouthfeel. Not as good as Krombacher for example. Boring.
