3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold, not much head action. Muted fruit hop aroma. Flavour is pale lager-esque, not much wheat in there, notes of banana. Low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Nothing amazing, but pleasant enough.

Golden, clean Aroma of caramel and hops Palate very good Overall - Very surprising but order me up one and place it on the bar but this is a great beer. The best filtered wheat I have had It reminded me the best Castilian bread, because of its wheat flavour and aroma. This wheat has a nice flavour Nice and straight forward beer. Unusual and refreshing surprise. This best beer i every had one top beers most have

Draft pour. The beer is a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is faintly grassy and a bit wheaty. Taste is faint, but has a little sweetness. Light body and medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden colour, tall frothy head soon becoming a thick film. After that stable. Earthy & dusty aroma with citric hoppy notes. Minimal vegetables. The flavour is highly unlike the style models made by hops. Light to medium bitter, no wheat fruitiness & spiciness to be detected. That’s quite monotonous I’d say. Light to medium body. Thin texture. Medium bitterness in ending. If this should be an Irish wheat ale so let it be. Just don’t call it a Kristallweizen.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright yellow/golden color. The beer is crystal clear. The beer has a sweet slightly bready smell. The smell is simple but good. It is bitter, like a nice pilsner. It also has a special taste, I can’t figure out what. There is also a hint of metal in the back. However, the beer is great. Very nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear pale gold with medium carbonation and a very small head that dissipates quickly; low carbonation. The aroma is grainy, sweet, with a slight floral, soft hoppy finish. An interesting take on the classical Kristallweizen, but doesn’t offer much in return.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle brought back from Ireland by my wife. Poured into a shaker, slightly hazy pale yellow with not a lot of head. Aromas of grain and banana, light hops. Rather a middle-of-the-road beer, not exactly what I’d expect from a german wheat beer (which I guess is to be expected, coming from Ireland) - not typical of the breed. Not bad, but not great. Don’t know that I’d search it out if ever I was to visit the emerald isle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Kristalweizen from Ireland? Who would have thought that this would work?
It is not 100% comparable to the German originals, but unlike many a Weizen experiment from abroad this really has it’s own style flavour and drinkability. Well done.

Bue en bouteille de 50cl au Kilarney, couleur blonde, mousse et effervescence moyenne. Nez assez malté sur le grain cuit. Continuité sur une pointe d’amertume citronnée, et fin de bouche réglisse mais très maltée.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Prodotta con malto di frumento, è una birra molto leggera e un po’ meno amara della Irish Pale Ale già provata. Abbastanza anonima in verità.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Nice color. Very light citrus aroma. I don’t know if it’s just my bad luck are the batch gone wrong but the only taste I can sense is butter, pure butter. Undrinkable. Don’t remember the last time I poured a beer down the drain. Totally upset by this one.
