1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2007 Bottle, acquired on a rafting trip to Santa Fe. Rating taken from notes i’ve been too busy to input, original drinking date was probably May of 2005. Pours with a small fizzy white diminishing head. Lacing is spare, body is sparkling and a very pale yellow color. Aroma is lightly malty, lightly hoppy of hay, grass, celery, orange, and lime. Lightly yeasty and hints of soap and chalk. Light in body with a thin texture and average carbonation with a metallic finish. Flavor is short in duration, light to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Terrible. Bad metallic aftertaste. It’s more like a yucky pils. I hate to admit it but I can’t finish this s$%^.

Damn glad to find this dusty bottled beer. Its got a copper color to it with a small head. Aroma is of fresley cut weeds and skunky malts. Tastes like salt water with maybe some caramel dipped in it.

Medium gold hue with light orange edges. Some very small particles. Visible carbonation. Medium, creamy, white head is short lived. Aromas of hair in a fan motor, corn, butter, salt, hay and light grains. Lightly sweet, lightly acidic flavor. Very lightly sweet finish. Not much flavor outside of some corn and hay, thankfully. Some of the off-flavors do come through in the finish though. Medium-light body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

Don’t you need to use a weizen yeast to produce a Kristall weizen? Pours a light straw with a fizzy head. Citrusy aromas. Diacetyl in a weizen? Finishes like Alka seltzer. This is just terrible.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear pale-yellow body with mild carbonation and loose soapy white head that mostly faded away. Aroma of citrusy/banana esters, touch of clove, wheat and diacetyl. Grainy, cereal flavor. Also estery, slightly nutty, considerably sweet, medium acidity, and a hint of hop bitterness. Tart, thin eviscerated body. Sweet, cloying cereal tartness dominates and really hurts.

As said in previous rating, this is one of those fridge cleaners where you drink this to make room for other better beers, as I was saying I agree, this is right up there with the worst wheat beers I have ever had. Stale wheat chex...indeed

Pours yellow with a thin white head. Mildly spicy aroma with some fruit. Taste is somewhat earthy. Slightly sour finish. Refreshing. Probably not to style but I enjoyed it.
