The Dutch brewers Bavaria are veterans of the alcohol-free beer market, having launched their original 0.0% beer back in 1978. They now make four alcohol-free beers but we don’t see most them here. So, it’s good to see the Bavaria Wit on the shelves alongside their standard lager.

Witbier is the Dutch word for what the Germans call weißbier – literally “white beer”, presumably because it’s so cloudy. Bavaria Wit certainly looks like a witbier and has the good herby flavour and aroma of decent witbier. Unfortunately, it’s just too sweet, and that really spoils the experience. To tell the truth, none of our taste-testers wanted to finish the bottle, and no-one wanted a second one.

If you want a good alcohol-free witbier/weißbier, Maisel’s Weisse or Franziskaner are better options.
