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fermentation is not interrupted and the beer has time to mature, only after the maturation the alcohol is carefully withdrawn.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

Ktwse (4172) - Greater London, - MAY 17, 2012
Quite nice. Pours hazy golden with a thick and tall white head. Aroma is citrus, bread, yeast, somewhat sweet. Taste is slightly bitter with a touch of sweetness to balance it. Body is a bit light, but alright. Best alcohol free beer Ive had, thats for sure.

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

Bierdimpfe (540) - 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.

500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy golden, large long lasting white head, good lacing. Parfumed aroma, citrus, soap, white pepper and coriander. Crisp and light mouthfeel, medium carbonated. A bit watery taste as expected, wheat, soap, citrus and bread. Not all wrong.

zvsn (1725) - ISRAEL - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle at Biergarten 1040. Hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is fruity, earthy and soapy. Sweetish, mild fruity and spicy notes, some banana and citrus, clean but quite bland. Light-bodied, watery, high carbonation. Ok, but not very interesting.

mathieuc (3496) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2016 Pours a lightly cloudy golden with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of banana and wheat sheaf. Taste is dry with a light tartness. Light banana and bready wheat. Body is light and carbonation high and prickly. A bit too light for an hefe. A fair alcohol free beer but I must say Im a bit disappointed as I expected quite a bit more.
