A - Typical Weihenstephan head - huge, fluffy, white with great retention. Cloudy pale amber body with sticky, chunky lacing all the way to the finish.

S - Banana, wheat and crackers.

T - Wheat, banana, bread, yeast.

M - Thin body, moderate carbonation, very watery.

O - Surprisingly good for a non-alcoholic beer. Easily as good as many macros.

Found these at a local German grocer, this poured a cloudy amber with abundant head much like it's big brother. Smells much like him too except not quite as pronounced. Flavor starts off nice with banana-clove aromas, but finishes with a very slight bit of that funky unfermented malt flavor that you normally get with Non-Alcoholic beer. Aftertaste contains a bit of a metallic undertone but not so much that it is offensive.

If you want something that actually tastes like beer without the alcohol this is actually quite good. Worth a shot.

I went for a walk today to the Stockenhof in the Stubai valley in Austria. Because i was with my car i decided to take this alcoholfree beer.

To be fast in this one...this is the best alcoholfree beer by far. Poured in a original glass for Weihenstephaner alcoholfree beer this ber looks like a normal beer. Cloudy fluid and a great head which stays the whole distance.

For a non-alcoholic beer this is the best i ever had. Period!

Soft and creamy taste with a nice aftertaste.

Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Alkoholfrei, ABV: 0.5%.
500 ml bottle, 12.90 SEK at Systembolaget.

A: The liquid is hazy, light golden, almost orange in colour. The head is white, thick and foamy, and fades slowly.

S: A somewhat earthy, yeasty aroma of spices and banana candy, with hints of lemons, honey and flowers.

T: Well, it's very watery, but here are many candy-like flavours of yeast, lemons, spices and some honey. Weisse, it is.

M: Light, in all aspects, but somehow sticky - from the carbonation, or the tart of sour lemon candy flavours.

O: I'm not impressed, although I'm not an "expert" on weissbiers, I've had better non-alcoholic wheat beers. The traditional flavours are there, but it seems watered down, and the mouthfeel is kind of nasty. Perhaps it could work better with food.

A: This beer is hazy light golden with a tall creamy white head. Only some lacings after dissipation.

S: Ripe bananas from the wheat and an off-smell, almost like smoked ham. Bready.

T: Very mild taste; only faint flavours; ripe bananas and bread.

M: Light body and rich carbonation - what you could expect from a non-alcoholic beer. Aftertaste is short.

O: Well, this beer is clearly for those who can't enjoy real beer, considering that - not too bad.

This pours a cloudy light golden with a two finger head which drops to minimal covering.

The banana and cloves noticeable on the nose carry through to the palate.

Overall slightly watery and a touch metallic but still drinkable. Much better than dealing with most light beers out there if you have to drive.
