Oakes (13303) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2015
Golden fizzy kristallweizen with a fluffy head. Fresh grainy aroma with a sugared apple fruitiness. Not a bad aroma. Light, slightly appley with a clean biscuity malt character and a slightly wheaty finish. The body is quite creamy. Pretty good example, actually. Not easy to find but I swear this has to be the best Mexican macrobrew.

Lubiere (10873) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
A golden weizen with a thick white head. In aroma, grassy sweet fruity malt with light grassy hops, light mineral notes, OK. In mouth, a light perfumy malt with light mineral notes, faint hops, boring. Bottle from Oxxo, shared with my parents.

JoeMcPhee (8837) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Pale amber pour. The aroma is laden with coriander and a bright citrus acidity. Wheat malt is present as a kick of citrus on the back of the palate. Lightly sweet with a bit of soft tartness on the finish. Fairly spicy with a lingering tartness. The coriander gets a little bit perfumey after awhile, and not really in a good way. It’s neither Bavarian nor a weizen. Still, it’s not awful.

Ernest (6606) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially small, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain, husks), with light notes of artificial banana candy, burnt sugar, vegetables. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Another disappointment here...expected something more refreshing and drinkable from the makers of the Clasica, but this is husky, dirty, and artificial.

decaturstevo (5396) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Pretty clear yellow pour with white head. Aroma is light bananas, wheat, and a touch of floral. Flavor mirrors aroma with a flat wheat and a touch of sweet. Medium bodied with good carbonation. ok

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - AUG 31, 2009
Smells like a weizen, but tastes like akristall weizen, so in the end, tastes like nothing so far. IT looks like someone threw an alka seltzer inside.

Cheers JoeMcPhee. Citrus yeasty aroma. Crisp texture. Rather sweet. Settles to a smooth beer. Flavour of herbs in the finish,

ElDesmadre (2153) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle. Interesting take - kristallwit, anyone? Lots of perfumy coriander notes with some malt and hops farther back. Not too intense flavourwise, light sweet, not as refreshing as expected. Still rather pleasant and original.
