For a nonalcoh beer it's pretty good. As close to a hefeweisen without any alcohol. Nice fluffy head and subtle banana flavor. Great summer beer for those who can't consume alcohol.

Strong head. Slightly cloudy.

Aroma is promising but has a slightly sweet candy/floral flavour: violets, lavender and vanilla with a skunky background.

Dry mouthfeel. Won't do this again....has a synthetic feel to it

Pours orange and pretty clear. White head dissipates steadily leaving some residual head and lacing.

Smell is remarkably skunky for a weissebier. Hint of a metallic note with faint hints of floral hops.

Taste has notes of wheat, sweet floral hops, strong grain notes, and an overly sweet bread note on the finish.

Feel is decent for the style. Reasonably light although the wheat provides some heft. Mild carbonation.

Overall I suspect this bottle was on the old side. Id like to revisit a fresh one. For what it is, its ok, but its not something I'd likely care to ever drink again.

An excellent choice for the days when I'm thirsting for something refreshing minus the alcohol.
Very grainy on the nose and the palate; the carbonation makes for a refreshing mouthfeel. Serve chilled - tastes better out of the bottle.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look: Pale amber color. Very clear for a Weissbier. Tall off-white head, medium lasting, leaves solid lacing. High and fast carbonation is visible.

Smell: Floral (elder like).

Taste: Tastes like elder syrup with spicy bitterness of the hops. Hints of apple aroma in the background.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with pleasant carbonation. Dry metallic aftertaste with hoppy bitterness.

Overall: It is flavorful considering it is non-alcoholic beer, but not much of regular Weissbier taste. Feels like you drink elder juice with bitterness of hops.

I avoid drinking alcohol...So mostly you'll see me drinking a non-alcoholic beer, and this is a good one.

From bottle pours a clear golden colour with huge, foamy and longlasting off-white head. Aroma Grain, malt, hops and weak wheat and spices. Taste malty sweetness, corn syrup, grassy.

Poured from the 11.1 or whatever oz bottle into a pilsner glass.
Thick and foamy head, about a finger and a half thick emerged. Murky wheat beer body is there.
Smelled of wheat, for the most part. (it is a Weissbier, it makes sense). Pleasant to smell.
Tasted a little too sweet, and kind of syrupy. Nonetheless, there was no bitter finish and it was a bit disappointing, but the wheaty taste was there.
Mouthful was quite thick but really enjoyable for an NA
Overall, one of my favorite NAs that I would return to.

Clear golden color with a thick huge head with eternal retention and leaving heavy laces.
Interesting I get in the aroma the same sweet corn syrup from adjunct non-alcoholic beers, although it just have malted grains. The regular Hefe scent is faint and went away quickly.
Flavor with notes of bread malt, the faintest cloves, corn syrup (or much diluted honey), oxidized apples and raw grains. Dry aftertaste with a very low bitterness and a residual oxidized sweet note.
Light body with good carbonation.
This didn’t work quite well; it has no resemblance to their Hefeweizen. It is also oversweet and it has that annoying syrup (or watery honey) and raw grains notes from cheap non-alcoholic beers. Or just like dry malt extract with lots of water, right home brewers?
