Created by master craft brewer and former world beer sommelier champion Oliver Wesseloh. The u.NN IPA (überNormalNull) is a non-alcoholic craft beer from the Kehrwieder brewery in Hamburg, Germany and is the first German non-alcoholic IPA. This is a multi-award winningdry hop non-alcoholic beer that has all of the traditional light and refreshing characters of IPA with an International Bitterness Unit (IBU) of 45.
The ü.NN non-alcoholic IPA is produced exactly the same way as their regular beer including the full brewing process; dry-hopped with Simcoe and Mosaic and unfiltered. However, there is no alcohol to be removed as they use a special yeast that starts fermenting like regular yeast but runs out of food just before it has produced 0.4% abv.
The result is a low-alcohol beer with a fruity aroma with hints of mango and lime, it pours with a good head and has the perfect cloudy golden shade. It does not taste overly hoppy, with a good bitterness and a hint of the fruitiness from that aroma and a lasting finish.
