Beer Review: Summer in a Glass

Paulaner Non-Alcoholic Hefe-Weißbier

Less than 0.5% alcohol

Rating: Distinguished

Paulaner was always my favorite beer tent at Oktoberfest, so I was excited to try this non-alcoholic version.
(When I lived in Germany, my FitnessFirst used to stock this in the fridge next to the Powerade, so it must be good for you too, right?)
Weißbier (translation: “white beer”) is a type of hefeweizen. I always preferred it on a hot summer day because it wasn’t as heavy as the regular wheat beer. This alcohol-free version is rich in character, with honey and orange flavors. Not overly sweet, with a pleasant dry aftertaste. I can already see myself hoisting a “Maß” of this while singing “Ein Prosit” when I return to Oktoberfest. (Yes, they serve alcohol-free beer as well as “Apfelschorle,” a fizzy alcohol-free apple juice, in many of the tents because it’s a family affair. So you can still celebrate dry, if you can put up with the “betrunken” revelers.)

Supermarket outside of Germany: EUR2.09/bottle
