A: Cloudy, amber with a thick foamy, creamy looking head with great lacing.

S: Smells malts you’d find in a child’s beverage, much like other alcohol free beers I’ve tried, as well as citrus and coriander. Both seem equal in proportion, but the malt hits the nose first.

T: Tastes like malty Ovaltine or Milo-like (without the chocolate) beverage, watered down beer, some but little coriander and citrus coming through as well as a little banana, and some strange unpleasant sour/bitter flavour that I find in some other low alcohol beers.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation.

O: Overall, refreshing but a disappointment for an alcohol free beer. The typical hefe-weise flavours are not standing out as much as I would have hoped. The Krombacher version of this takes the cake by far.

It looks pretty good. Tall cream colored head fades a little faster then I'd like, but not bad. Murky golden beer is duller then normal (I'm not sure that means anything, but it has a strange color to it). Smells good. Faint banana with hints of bubble gum and wheat. Mouthfeel is subpar for a Hefe-Weizen, but not totally lacking like most NA's. It's moderately light and fluffy, but it there is a strange faint lactic twang. The taste is almost absent. You get more flavor from breathing in just before you sip then you do from the actually liquid. There is an acidic flavor/feeling that dominates the flavor. There might be a hint of wheat underneath and a dash of lemon, but the yeasty/banana flavor is missing. There are no off-flavors or aromas, which is nice. With a touch of flavor this beer could be at the top of the NA list.

I had this beer at a wedding, serving as Designated Driver. It was labeled "Thomas-Brau". Pours with a clear, golden color and a puffy, good-looking head. Aroma is of cooked vegtables and wet, uninspiring grain. Taste is hollow and empty, no real character at all. No mouthfeel whatsoever…slightly more appealing than soda water. ON the upside, it's better than O'Dools and other NA's. There is a beer flavor, and it's crisp and thirst-quenching. One of the best non-alcohol beers I've had.

500ml bottle poured into a pils glass by freshness date.

Slight hazy orange copper color, the pour yields thick white velvety head with good retention. Some lacing patches appear when dissipated.

Biscuity malt, some hint of yeast and cooked veggies in the nose.

The only thing reminding of Hefeweizen is a zesty citrus, no banana, no wheat, no clove, no bubblegum just citrus zest, cooked veggies and trait of malt. The body is light with smooth mouthfeel by moderate carbonation.

This is just another typical NA beer, light and clean and same time lackluster.

Alcohol free light Weizen. It's almost non carbonic what makes give it a taste of it's was opened three hours ago.
But have to say, that the taste of the beer itself is good but should be drank cold.
If you're looking for some sparkling and good tasting Weizen without alcohol you should try the Erdinger Weizen.

Orange color, semi opaque, the hefe has the normal effect, small bubbles, the carb is almoust null. some waste on the glass, the head is richy and creamy

smell is better than expected, the usual hefe weissbier aroma

the taste is good enough, is just like a normal paulaner, the wheat flaovur is noticed, the end is a little bit different
