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: 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?

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. Full disclosure, i have only found one alcohol free beer to be good and that was O'Doul's; after trying this beer it still stands at only one good beer. The beer looks the part but it has a very sweet aroma and is very carbonated.. The flavor is not good, but to be fair I was on about my fifth or sixth different German beer before trying this. My taste buds may have been expecting to much.

One of the quirks of The CANQuest (tm) is the discovery of oddball bottles and I hate to let them slip through my fingers as I may never have another opportunity to try them. Submitted for your curiosity ...

From the bottle: "Made in Bavaria according tot the Reinheitsgebot of 1516"; "Erdinger Non-Alcoholic is crafted all-naturally, using a traditional production method. Erdinger Non-Alcoholic is free from chemical additives or preservatives. Thank you for enjoying Germany's No. 1 malt beverage."

I Pop!ped the cap and began an aggro pour until it started foaming up, almost uncontrollably. I then sat back and watched as it formed a three-plus finger cap of puffy, rocky, bone-white head with very good retention. Color was Yellow-Gold (SRM = > 4, < 5) with NE-quality clarity. Nose smelled very bready/biscuity. Frankly, I have smelled beers that were way worse. Mouthfeel was thin and watery. The taste was actually quite pleasant. It was very malty in a biscuit-like way. Finish was semi-dry and rather tasty. That said, I would not want a steady diet of N.A. beers.

This is actually really impressive (for an alcohol free beer. In fact I find this preferable to a lot of over hyped German pils etc
good levels of flavour and pretty impressive mouthfeel for the style
