Maisel Weisse Alkoholfrei

Maisel Weisse Alkoholfrei has quite the hereditary being produced by the Maisel brewer who goes back all the way to 1887 … so they certainly have had some time to perfect the taste. The Maisel brewing company is still a key brewer in Germany and like others, brewers have moved to produce alcohol-free versions for their customers.  

Like other alcohol-free wheat beers that have come on the market, Maisel Weisse Alkoholfrei beer is marketed as a healthier drink option. It’s made from only natural materials, includes vitamins, and has significantly fewer calories. 

As a previous world beer award finalist on a number of occasions winner did this wheat beer had high expectations. Did Weisse Alkoholfrei live up to its reputation? You’ll need to read the review below.

Is Weisse Alkoholfrei any good?


This is certainly a tasty wheat beer, no doubts there. Full of a sweet hoppiness you expect from a traditional wheat beer. There is also the unexpected background taste of exotic fruits that give it a pleasant edge. Thankfully the balance of bitterness and sweetness is just right making this a great alcohol-free alternative. The only real grumble I had was that it was a tad too carbonated and given the size of the bottle easily filled me up.

Aroma & Appearance

Weisse Alkoholfrei had a lovely golden amber colour and when poured had one of the best heads of any alcohol-free beer we’ve seen. Similar to its taste there was a strong aroma of fruit and we picked out bananas and apricots. 

Bonus points

As mentioned in the intro this alcohol-free wheat beer is one of the healthiest options out there. It is isotonic and includes additional vitamins for the health kick. In addition, it has low calories (well compared to the alcoholic varieties) and is vegan friendly.  Maisel’s Weisse Alkoholfrei can be found in most supermarket chains and online retailers (see below).
