Al-Bouti of Syria on the possibilities of drinking a beer containing only minuscule amounts of alcohol

Fatwa, posted 11.7.2010, from Syria, in:
Religious Authority: 
Muhamad Saed Ramdan al-Bouti
Fatwa Question or Essay Title: 
I live in Japan we have here a Beer contains 0.1% alcohol, while the normal Beer contains generally 5% Alcohol, so some brothers are asking if it is possible to drink it.

In case it causes intoxication if a lot of it is drunk, it will be unlawful, and vice versa if it does not intoxicate.
