3.3/5 rDev +10%
500ml bottle, 0.2% ABV. How does a bottle of non-alcoholic beer have near 500 calories of 'nutrition'? Oh riiight - flavour.
This beer pours a hazy medium golden apricot hue, with three fingers of very tight, melted marshmallow foamy head, which leaves a few broad swaths of thick painted lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.
It smells of very bready, cereal graininess, with a subtle leafy, earthy hoppiness. The taste is big breakfast cereal malt, all sugar, all grain, all the time, and very little in the way of understated noble hops.
The carbonation is fairly sedate, though not really all that relevant, the body medium light in weight, and more or less smooth throughout the whole affair. It finishes off-dry, the barley sweetness still doing well in absence of its stolid alcohol friend, and fluffy hop interloper. It finishes sweet, malty and very much redolent of an average breakfast cereal.
Pretty tasty, for a low-alcohol offering - all the hefeweizen goodness, with the added bonus of a lessening in the yeast and typical fruitiness. Kind of like drinking a tasty, natural soda pop - lots of sugar and inherent flavour, but with no other sexy sideshow attributes.

2.2/5 rDev -26.7%
Poured a huge, dense, dark cream colored head sat a half inch above the top of the glass. The head faded slowly into the hazy dark apricot beer. Smells of sweet malt juice and a hint of fresh dough. Light wheat flavors and a hint of citrus are quickly overpowered by a sweet malt flavor. It's missing that fluffy soft Hefeweizen mouthfeel too. It looks like a Hefeweizen, but that's the only positive thing I can say about this beer.
