Benediktiner – Weissbier Alkoholfrei

Ettal Monastery was founded by Louis IV, Emperor of Bavaria, on 28 April 1330. In the 15th and 16th century, the monastery had its own brewery in nearby Oberammergau. The brewery was established at Ettal Monastery in 1609.  Beer has been brewed here on a continuous basis for more than 400 years.

I found this beer at a local supermarket in Denmark at the price of 1,5 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 0%.

Slightly unfiltered and yellow in the colour.

Great and big head with a beautiful foam and structure. Super fine foam on top.

Primarily wheat in the aroma with a faint fruit aroma.

Light CO2, mild in the taste with a weak but sweet wheat to it.

Overall rating is 70 / 100

Kaiserdom Hefe-Weissbier Alkoholfreies

This wheat beer comes from the private owned brewery located at Bamberg in the northern Bayern.

Kaiserdom have been making beer here since 1718, which for a Bayern brewery could be described as being one of the younger breweries.

I found this beer at a local supermarket in Denmark at the very reasonable price of 2 Euro for a 500 ml can at 0%.

A thick flowing orange beer, impossible to see through from the heavy amount of sediment.

There is little to no head on this beer, not even a little persuasion at pouring can make it have one.

A good, but light, fruity aroma.

Flat CO2, taste is okay, a good blend of wheat and fruit notes, too thin in the after taste.

Overall rating is 73 / 100

Neumarkter Lammsbräu – Weisse Alkoholfrei

GS6A8647

The first written reference is from 1628 with the mention of the inn “Zum Goldenen Lamm”, that translates to The Golden Lamb, located in Neumarkt, Germany.

In 1800 the brewery was bought by the Ehrnsperger family and in 1845 the brewery Neumarkter Lammsbräu was founded. Since 1977 they have been brewing bio-dynamic beers and developed the concepts up through almost 40 years and have received numerous awards for their caring for the environment.

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 0,0%.

Good looking hazy orange beer.

Large head with a fine top.

Medium aroma with a scent of wheat and vegetables.

Good CO2, a fresh wheat taste with a light fruit, more in the after taste. Bio-dynamic / organic beer. But still a off from missing alcohol.

Overall rating 75 / 100
