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

This is a very good low alcohol Weißbier! A few weeks ago i was visiting my beerbuddy Don (Digita7693) in his hometown Kassel in Germany. We went to an Indian restaurant in Kassel which was great. They served us this version...

Poured in the original glass the beer looks great. Cloudy lightbrown to darkyellow fluid and lots of head. Pour this one quitly in the glass to get best results.

Good taste, this is a great beer when you have to drive afterwards. Not watery in the mouth. The mouthfeel is high but i noted this for the good quality of taste.

This beer is NOT RETIRED. I went to the Carrefour in Varna, Bulgaria today and found a great many of these on the shelf, when I didn't seen them about a month ago. The date on the bottle is 2/2/2010 So I think these are back into rotation.

A: Poured from the 500mL brown glass bottle into a weizen glass. The beer is a nice cloudy orange, just like a normal weiss, with a good amount of carbonation within. Head was very surprising - 3 and a half fingers, pure white, and with very good retention - something I haven't really seen in a low ABV beer before. Nice.

S: Heavy on the bready/biscuity notes, with a slight hint of yeast, like a waft of biscuits n the oven. Outside of that there is a slight hint of citrus and almost none of the stereotypical banana or bubblegum notes. In this way, this doesn't quite smell like a weiss, but it's not a bad smelling beer.

T: Here's where the beer starts living up to the non-alcohol reputation. The beer has no backbone, and is very watery. There are some hints of bread or citrus, but almost invisible. This might as well be Bud Light, taste-wise. Almost nothing here. Finishes similar, a slight lick of some sort of light fruit, then just water all the way down.

Notes: For a moment there this seems like a "real beer," right up to the moment before it hits your tongue. Then everything fades back into reality. This might be a good beer substitute for someone on the wagon, but comes very short of being a good weiss. If I ever gave up alcohol, I don't think I'd go to NA beers, but get into something else instead. They just don't quite live up. That being said, I think this drink is probably near the top (if not at the top) of the NA list. Before drinking, it gives a good impression of being a real beer, which is really the point, isn't it?

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.
