From master craft brewer, Oliver Wesseloh in Hamburg comes ü.NN IPA alkoholfrei the first German non-alcoholic IPA. A dry hopped non-alcoholic India Pale Ale that has the traditional light and refreshing character of IPA. Furthermore, Oliver is always trying to rethink new and old beer styles and put a new twist to them. Hence Kehrwieder was the first brewery in Germany to brew a dry hopped lager.
Brewed using the highly fruity aroma hops Simcoe & Mosaic and with a special yeast the result is a full IPA flavour, but without the alcohol. ü.NN alkoholfrei IPA has a IBU level of 45.
The beer smells surprisingly fruity with hints of mango, lime and pineapple. It pours with a good head. It is a nice golden colour and cloudy - looks great in a glass! It is not overly hoppy and is strong on bitterness, with a hint of the fruitiness that was evident on the nose. It’s not watery at all and has a lasting finish.
