500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Deep gold color, cloudy appearance. Crown is close, rocky, white in color & shows fairly good retention. Toasted bread, biscuit & slight citric aromas. Crispy upfront, sweet malty flavor. Medium body. Medium moderate to moderate carbonation. Dense texture. Citric notes & light floral bitterness into a long sweet finish. No artificial flavors but a bit fat drinkability.

The looks are good: fluffy white head and a murky darker orange body
Smeel of mainly bready malt not much clove and maybe a hint of banana
Taste is bready malt, watery, some unpleasant bitterness, wheat sour as well
Very watery feel inspite of the suspended yeast, biting carbonation
Not bad, but also not a proper substitute for the real thing

Purchased at an Ulrich's in Berlin.

Pours a cloudy yellow/gold with a billowing, thick, frothy, white head that lingers as I drink the entire glass.

Aroma is of sweetish wheat malt, with very little banana-clove presence, which was surprising.

Taste was spot on for a hefeweizen, full-flavored wheaty/bready character. Banana comes through a little more in the taste, but is never close to overpowering.

Mouthfeel is creamy and effervescent as is the be expected.

Overall, a high quality non-alcoholic option for beer drinkers that refuse to sacrifice on taste and flavor. I would not have known it was alcohol-free if it wasn't in the name.
