December 2004: 500 ml bottle. Looks like a very pale Hefe-Weissbier, and for some reason I hoped a N/A Weissbier would be much better than other N/A beers. I was disappointed. Sickly "boiled" smell and flavour of wort, overdone vegetables and wet cardboard, just like Clausthaler. None of the Hefe aroma and "freshness" I hoped for. Avoid.

Looks like a cloudy wheat beer, with the typical frothy head in the glass. Unusual taste. A bit like malty, strongly brewed black tea with honey. Satisfying mouthfeel and finish and all the better for not trying to be something it's not. A lovely drop in its own right.

A: Pours a clear medium yellow in color with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate medium golden yellow + brassy + amber + pale orange colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall pillowy sudsy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of medium thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of bready + biscuit + wheat + cracker malts with a moderate amount of honey sweetness. Very light aromas of earthy + herbal + grassy hops. Light amounts of bubblegum + very faint clove from the yeast.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of bready + biscuit + wheat + cracker malts with a moderate amount of honey sweetness. That is followed by very light flavors of bubblegum + clove from the yeast. Finally there is a very light flavor of earthy + herbal + grassy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving light lingering honey + wheat malts.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with a hint of creaminess upfront and a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with an interesting touch of creaminess to the mouthfeel. Enjoyable combination of malts especially with the honey adding some sweetness but could use just a hint more hop presence to balance it out.

Nice amber color with a decent cloudy head. Aroma of honey, flower, herbs, lemon. Taste is like tea with lemon and honey. Mouthfeel is light to slightly slick. Clean finish. On the maltier side. Actually quite enjoyable and would taste great mixed with a lemonade.

(330 ml bottle; best before 08-2021; purchased single off shelf... poured into a Belhaven pub pint)

L: polished-clear, amber liquid; foam fills half the glass (10 oz worth), off-white, fantastic pillowy, tight build... the foam retention is incredible, and it laces a little

S: very mellow intensity, dough, spicy-herbal grass... really a chore to snuff out some

T: rather clear malt expression, taking a few seconds to unravel through the long finish... maybe a bit of phenolic spice, and definitely a mellow residual sweetness, which builds as it goes... very little notable bitterness; aftertaste is predominantly a doughy bread flavor, with a subtle apple-like ester slowly emerging

F: lacks the creamy, round textures of a yeasty hefeweizen, though it leaves a very delicate residual viscosity... as with most NAs, the finish cuts away clean

O: as far as a wheat NA, this is ok, but arguably not as characterful as the Weihenstephaner (though better looking); can't say which one is better... overall, it's well made, not too sweet, not too bitter; would probably go well enough with food, though its nuances would likely be muted, even against a cracker (1748)

Pours a med-large fizzy foamy 1.5 finger head with moderate retention, nice soapy lacing, mostly clear slight chill hazed tan-gold color

Nose is actually pretty good, cracked wheat and grain, cereal, creamy wheat, a faint hint of fruity esters, kinda like the regular version of the weissbier but minus most of the esters and phenols

Taste is a little less great but not terrible, more creamy wheat, cracked grain and cereal notes, plenty of malt flavor, but then no esters or phenols coming through (since there was prob no real fermentation), raw grist character, and a weird glutenous like almost syrupy flavor, touch of bitterness, bone dry finish

Mouth is med to lighter bod, higher fizzy carb

Overall not bad for NA beer, nice malt/wheat characters, really missing the fermentation characters which makes sense, and those really make the beer what it is, but for NA it's drinkable

Can: Poured a clear golden color beer with a large pure white foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of light cereal notes with some faint residual sugar but vegetable notes increases as beer warms up.Taste is a mix of light cereal notes with some residual sugar but also quite a bit of unrefined grain and vegetable notes, which are not that pleasant. Body is about average for style. Definitely not that great.

Style tick, Bottle from the Packie.
Pours a mostly clear deep golden color with a huge bubbly white head that persists. Nose is initially skunky but fades quickly revealing a bit of bready and cereal maltiness along with some light pitted fruity notes. Flavor is sweet bread malty with hints of fruit and light earthy hop flavor. The body is medium with a firm level of carbonation but the finish is extremely dry. Its like you have a mouthful of medium bodied beer and then it dries out and its gone from your palette in an instant. For alcohol free its not too bad.

Pours a cloudy, pale golden coloration with a lerge, foamy head and visible carbonation. Smells vaguely of somewhat doughy malt and grassy, chalky hops. Taste follows the nose, with a decent balance of sweet'ish malt and floral, grassy, chalky hops, with zero yeast esters coming through. Finishes with a very light bitterness and some sweet malt and chalky hops lingering in the aftertaste. Full mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

While I try my best to rate these low-alcohol beers to style, the truth of the matter is that they are all terrible. I just don't see the point, I'd rather have a soda, to be honest. While this is actually one of the nicer low-alcohol brews that I've had overall, It's a terrible Weizen because it completely lacks any trace of those yeasty esters typical of the style, making this hard to rate. I mean, it's pretty drinkable for a low-alcohol beer, but it tastes NOTHING like a Weizen. Decent body and mouthfeel though.

Aroma of spice, yeast and wheat.
Sweet flavour of bread and dry biscuit. Distant honey.
Gentle carbonation. Refreshing feel.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is very mild, hints of grains. Taste is full of bread, grains, light malts. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall it's not bad, but there are N.A. beers out there at similar quality at a much lower price point.

Deep gold pour with excellent clarity; four fingers of fluffy white foam; excellent cap retention; medium heavy lacing. Whiff of floral hops and DMS. Sweet bready malt with light floral hops taste. Thin but not watery body; medium carbonation. Overall, good tasting and no off flavors; firm malt base and enough hops so that the beer is not boring; I’d drink again.

From the back label: "Best before end: 06-2020 L 1212061"

Appearance: The body is a light gold with hints of medium gold in the middle. It is slightly hazy. The head is medium-sized and fluffy, white in color, and has a moderately lumpy looking surface. Very good head retention.

Aroma: It has a light aroma of cereal grain. There is a hint of malt which smells like Malta Goya. There is also a bit of a tea-like hop aroma.

Taste: A nice herbal hop flavor comes through at first, followed by a light bit of toasted caramel. It finishes with a light earthy flavor. It is a pleasant beer to drink.

Mouthfeel: The body is light and refreshing with just a tad bitterness at the intake of the beer and a slightly stronger one at the finish. It has a nice crisp body. It is very well made.

Overall: The flavors and aromas are good, and the presentation of this beer to the palate is excellent. The label states that this is a "NON-ALCOHOLIC" beverage that "CONTAINS LESS THAN 0.5% ALCOHOL BY VOLUME." It is a very flavorful and light-drinking beer that doesn't compromise for its lack of alcohol. It would be great to drink a few of these while watching a movie or enjoying a day at the beach. It would go well with burgers or any sandwiches. After a while it does get a bit sweet but it cleans up that sweetness with a light bitterness from the subsequent sip. I would recommend it to those looking for low/non-alcoholic beers with flavor. I would drink it again.

Clear amber white head.
Smells like an average German pils or weissbier. Bread/floral.
Clean lager taste. Minimal hop bitterness. Almost all restrained malt flavors of bread.
Overall tastes like a very easy-drinking German or Czech beer. No weird side effects of alcohol removal.

From the bottle with a 09-2019 best by date. Sampled on Sept 14, 2019.

The pour is golden amber with a big, white head.

N/A beers have this clean, malty sensation in the aroma and this has that.

Light body.

Malt sweetness in the taste but kind of like a cooked character. Clean finish.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 2/2017. Pours crystal clear medium golden/amber color with a 1 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and biscuit; with lighter notes of honey, toast, banana, bubblegum, clove, peppercorn, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale/wheat malts; light-moderate fruity/spicy yeast, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and biscuit; with lighter notes of honey, toast, banana, bubblegum, clove, peppercorn, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Slight NA cardboard notes in aromas/flavors, but not overwhelming. Light-moderate herbal, floral, grassy bitterness; and peppery/clove yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and biscuit, honey, toast, banana, bubblegum, clove, peppercorn, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale/wheat malts; light-moderate fruity/spicy yeast, and earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitter/spiciness balance; and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitter/spiciness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Overall this is a delicious NA wheat beer. All around nice robustness and balance of pale/wheat malts; light-moderate fruity/spicy yeast, and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, and fairly crisp/clean/refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/spicy/drying finish. I was expecting a lager base style like the rest of the NA beers I've had, but this leans more into a hefeweizen area; but is not strong on the yeast character as would be expected. Great clean wheat/pils malt showcase; with solid fruity/spicy yeast presence, and earthy noble hop balance. A very enjoyable offering, and impressive NA brew.
