I don’t understand Krisallweizen, or as I think of it, Hefeweizen light. There is a light wheat aroma, yeast, some banana, and clove. The flavors are all there but too light. Thanks for sharing, Skyview.

Growler, courtesy of Skyview. Nearly clear copper color with no head. Very light banana aroma. The flavor is spot on to a regular hefe: lots of cloves and bananas, rounded out with full wheat. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the brewpub next to downtown Mineral Point, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that laves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of banana esters, cloves a touch of creamed corn, golden grain malt, wheat and some cotton candy. Taste is light bodied, some carbonation with flavors of banana esters, creamed corn, wheat and a touch of cloves. Finish is semi-sweet with a nice banana and malt aftertaste. Past Kristalweizens I’ve tried are very light and had more of a wheat ale character. This is the first one I’ve tried that actually has some hefe character.
