Gruvi says that this Weisse beer is the first alcohol-free sour beer. Like other Gruvi products, it has bright and attractive packaging, plenty of feel-good factor about ordering this in a bar or turning up at friends with a 6 pack.
We got the Gruvi Weisse as part of the Gruvi Sample Box, available here for $29.99 and includes 4 Gruvi IPA, 4 Gruvi Weisse, and 4 Gruvi prosecco, all alcohol-free. As with the Gruvi IPA we had a small group review the drink, Richard (me) Cheryl, Nick, and Erin. All of us are either associated with NoLowNow or are in the drinks industry. None of us are associated with Gruvi.
Gruvi Weisse – Highlights from our tasting session
Erin: Pours well with a good head, looks good in the glass. Good feel to it when drinking, it has a lean style and tastes like I would expect it to. It’s kinda sour. It doesn’t have the same great smell as the Gruvi IPA.
Nick: It’s not my style, it’s like kombucha, I don’t really like sour beers
Erin: It is mine, this is good.
Cheryl: I’m not really getting the lemon though, it’s good but not overly lemony
Nick: The aroma is yeasty and sour citrus. The initial taste is more sour /bitter/grapefruit pith. It’s pleasant and followed by something riper – apricot. The finish dies off.
Good to know:
Erin: It has a really low-calorie count (29 calories per can)
Richard: The bright yellow packaging is clean and bright – you could take it to a friend’s
Alcohol content: 0.0% ABV
Price: $12.99 for a 6 pack
What the maker says: A truly refreshing citrus beer, carefully brewed with fresh lemon peels that release limonene to help to elevate your mood and energy. Gruvi Weisse is aromatic, light and drinkable. It will truly awaken your taste buds with its lemony start and wheaty finish.
