Beer Review: Bavaria 0.0% Strawberry...

Recommended Posts

Was in Tops the other day looking for 0% alcohol brewskis.  Of course, got some Heineken 0.0.

 

Then I saw this puppy on the shelf.  Didn't notice the "strawberry" flavor on the label. 

 

Whoa.  Was I surprised when I popped the top this afternoon expecting a cold, near-beer experience.

 

I presume it's an attempt at duplicating a Belgium Style ale?

 

It grows on you, but I wouldn't call those sweet Belgium ales "beer", either. More like a mix between champagne and wine coolers. 😁

 

Taddy Smith Porter is still my #1 commercial beer available worldwide.

 

Review: 2 out of 5 taste.

You know...real beer. 😛

I'm not sure if that's the location, or the name of the Thai company behind it....

 

But it kind of looks like some version of these guys. Except they don't appear to list a Strawberry among their brews, and the labeling on the OP's bottle is substantially different than those below.

My response was actually tongue in cheek, as we all know bavaria and holland exist in 2 different countries, but it seems bavaria holland us actually  produced by a large family owned brewery originating in the netherlands.

Ok so it has no alcohol and tasted like strawberries. What is it that makes it beer other that  it is in a beer like container ?

Right, except, this brewer has operations/breweries in a variety of countries around the world. So I was curious to know from the OP, for his can, where it's listed as having been brewed?

 

And, the OP also didn't mention what purchase price he paid for the can he bought.

A non alcoholic strawberry beer. Goes against everything beer stands for!

Xactly! Just get a soft drink if you don't want a Real beer. FCS. 🙂

if a barmaid poured a beer with that much head on it at an aussie pub she would be crucified
