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fermentation is not interrupted and the beer has time to mature, only after the maturation the alcohol is carefully withdrawn.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

Looks the part when poured; frothy head and faint sour aroma. Decent malty flavour, refreshing. One of the best non-alcoholic beers Ive tried.

lesifflebiere (1788) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2017
Dore lgrement "nuageuse", cette concoction vierge la jolie mousse blanche est trs certainement trompeuse sur les apparences : le visuel ainsi que lolfactif (pain, bananes) rappellent absolument une hefe. Derrire le voile, les saveurs sont un peu fades, la texture aqueuse, la langue un peu crayeuse, mais elle demeure bien faite pour ce quelle est, et russit parfois faire oublier au buveur que son breuvage a t priv de son me. Autrement dit, trs bien faite, mais elle reste une bire sans alcool, avec les dterrents que cela comporte.

I really liked it. Ive really found a non-alcoholic beer that tastes like beer. There is a refreshing taste of beer but without a real beer acohol. Repeat the test again.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piana srednia, a jak na pszeniczniaka mozna by powiedziec mala, za to metnosc spora. Aromat bananpwo morelowy. W smaku niezbyt mocno wyczuwalna drozdzowka, nie ma to piwo takiej mdlosci jak co niektore, a w zasadzie wiekszosc piw bezalkoholowych. Wszystko w miare jest dobrze. Oceniam to piwo dosc wysoko bo caly czas mialem swiadomosc ze to piwo bezalkoholowe pszeniczne. Ale jak na te warunki i zatrzymana fermentacje to jakosc Weihenstephaner jest tu zachowana

Bottle. A gift from my non-drinking father in law, he he. A good one, but misses a lot offcourse. Misses all the yeasty banana and the coriander, but got a lot of wheat witch makes it ok.

Bierdimpfe (612) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2016
Hazy gold, highly active, foam explosion, 4 fingers island head that last for around 10 minutes, good lacing. Flavors of wheat, lemon, banana yeast, clove, floral spices. Good thickness, balanced finish, although a little lighter than the alcohol version. Lingers with a bread and clove feel. Overall excellent quality craft for a low alcohol beer. Almost the exact same original flavors. Filling, delicious, and super fresh.
