Unrecognisably alcohol-free wheat beer!

Description

The quintessential German wheat beer, retaining its full flavour with less than 0.5% alcohol.

Wheat malt, aromatic hops and Rothaus’ own brewing yeast give their non-alcoholic Hefeweizen its fine, sparkling taste. Rothaus uses a system that’s the only one of its kind in Germany to extract the alcohol in a gentle process leaving the beers’ aromas intact.

An unrecognisably alcohol free wheat beer from Rothaus, one of the most respected and admired German wheat beer brands in the world.

Order here: 10 x 500ml (50cl) bottles.

Tasting Notes

“Pleasantly tangy. The honey tapers off in the aftertaste, leaving just a hint of bitterness that strikes the tongue in a short, dry flash.” - Oliver Wesseloh (World champion beer sommelier)

Appearance: Solid, off-white head. Rich golden tones with a touch of copper and a slight cloudiness.

Aroma: Fresh straw, honey, a hint of caramel and a distant whiff of fruit, such as ripe apple and banana.

Flavour: The first sensation is a rush of sweetness, like honey, but which quickly becomes much thinner. This taste weaves itself through the beer: not much body, pleasantly easy to drink and a very subtle sweetness like that of a banana that has been drizzled with honey, although the honey dominates. Pleasantly fizzy. There is another echo of honey in the finish, and then a quick, dry flash of bitterness appears. Extremely good as a refreshing drink on a warm day.

Special aspect: Thanks to a particularly gentle dealcoholisation process with aroma recovery, the non-alcoholic Hefeweizen retains its full flavour. That leads to a fruity, fresh beer experience that’s always in season – have you tried it yet?
