I found this Paulaner brew accidentally while looking for it's festbier cousin. This little devil pours a mostly normal cloudy color for hefeweizen, and has a slightly sweeter nose. The taste is definitely much sweeter, just shy of candy. These would be incredible in the summer. Additionally they are also non-alcoholic. I am disappointed that I have not heard of this until now, but will be watching going forward.

Pours slightly hazy, gold in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is big lemonade with white sugar and a touch white crusty bread. Sweet, light bodied, medium carbonation. Definitely has some of the Paulaner yeast. I can tell this radler is part of their family of beers. Very sweet but also very refreshing on a hot day. Could maybe benefit by a little less sugar but still one I would get again.

11.2oz bottle, shared with my pregnant sister-in-law, Lilli. Hazy golden body with a foamy white head. Aroma is lemon juice and weisse bier. Flavors are very lemony and refreshing; wheat, clove, bready yeast, and faint bubble gum go with the lemon juice well. Medium body, carbonation makes it feel fuller, sweet yet sour lemon finish. For non-alcoholic, this is good.

330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 10/2020. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lemon juice/pulp, lime, citrus peel/zest, wheat, cracker, and white bread dough; with lighter notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, wood, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of lemon juice, pale/wheat malts; and light-moderate fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hop notes; with big strength. Taste of big lemon juice/pulp, lime, citrus peel/zest, wheat, cracker, and white bread dough; with lighter notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, wood, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness; and citrus/wheat tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy citrus juice/pulp/peel/zest, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, banana, bubblegum, clove, wood, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of lemon juice, pale/wheat malts; and light-moderate fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness and tart/tangy fruit balance; with no astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitter/tart/spiciness and carbonation. Medium-plus carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly sticky/acidic/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Overall this is an outstadning NA radler style. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of lemon juice, pale/wheat malts; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/spicy/tart/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery at all. Perfectly balanced between weissbier and citrus juice flavors; solid hops presence/balance. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp dryness. A highly enjoyable offering and amazing style example. Best NA beer I have had.

Paulaner Weizen-Radler Non-Alcoholic
Served in Weizen vase glass

Look:
Cloudy yellow in color with bright white head with poor retention and fine bubble texture.

Smell:
Lemon and bready aromas dominate. No noticeable hop aroma or fermentation character.

Taste:
Obviously lemonade-heavy. Lots of sweetness with a slight hint of tartness. Bready undercurrents follow with no hop flavor or bitterness. Balance is very sweet, almost cloying, and has no lingering harshness or astringency. Old/stale flavor.

Feel:
Moderate carbonation with no alcohol, creaminess, or warmth. Medium-light body.

Overall:
Beer is slightly refreshing, but misses the mark by being a little too sweet and not being balanced in any way.

L: hazy orange like IPA not weizen
With lemon pieces and sediment

A: grapefruit and lemon

F: fizzy and sugary

T: like lemonade to hide taste of malt barley taste from low alcohol but more like lemonade than beer.

O: not a bad summer drink for someone who can't drink alcohol but it's more of lemonade than beer.

Pours a hazy orange, long lasting but small head of foam.

Lemon citrus and a cereal aroma.

Same for the taste. .If I am going to venture to the 0.5 % abv wild side, I reckon I could do worse but really?

330ml bottle - a mix of two summertime beer staples (wheat beer and radler), all with less than 0.5% ABV, for anyone that is looking for such an option.

This beer pours a murky, pale golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat creamy dirty white head, which leaves some broad coral reef patterned lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of European lemonade (lemon and some chalkiness, though not particularly sweet), a soft grainy wheatiness, and maybe a suggestion of earthy generic spice. The taste is fairly sweet grainy and lightly doughy wheat malt, slightly zesty lemon and lime soda, a further bit of hard water flintiness, and an echo of indistinct bitterness.

The carbonation is quite sedate, but supportive all the same, via its gentle frothiness, the body a solid medium weight, and actually rather smooth, with a nice airy creaminess kicking in once it warms up a tad. It finishes sweet, sure, but moderated well enough by some fruity tartness and subtle graininess alike.

Overall, a pleasantly refreshing, and enjoyable alcohol-free brew (or blend, I'm not going to stoke that fire), something that would indeed be very welcoming when you want to have absolutely all your wits about you when 'imbibing', y'know? A very good example of the style as defined here.

This beer is the bomb! Not watery and faint tasting like most NA beers. Similar to Schöfferhofer's 3.5% ABV Grapefruit Weizen-Mix, but with a lemon rather than a grapefruit taste. I usually prefer High ABV beers, but when I have to drive or operate power tools, I go for a NA beer. With this beer, I prefer it anytime just for the taste of it!
