Not bad - not as good as german wheat beers - but drinkable

JStax (3548) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2015
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.

vinivini (587) - BELARUS - MAY 22, 2015
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.

Gangstergafje (172) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2015
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.

Bagacios (6) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 26, 2015 does not count
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.

Metalflake (35) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2015
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.

massingasetta (364) - München, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2015
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.

freretoc (1076) - Besançon, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
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.

lello4ever (217) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
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.

cwiras (4) - POLAND - FEB 6, 2015 does not count
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.

MarkoNm (1199) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours almost completely clear golden color topped with a relatively small white head. Very mild aroma, some fruity notes, some wheaty notes. Later on some caramel notes. Taste is sweet and fruity at first, some wheat and caramel notes. Very moderate bitterness in the finish. Nice.
