3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brilliant clear golden with a classical German fluffy white head. Wheaty and clean nose with notes of wheat toast and clean german pale malts. Lovely, transportative flavor of clean biscuity german blonde malt, clean wheaty toast, and a summertime crisp blonde note on the finish. Tastes like I’m in Dusseldorf on a patio, and not in my livingroom in Denver.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2015 As Erdinger Kristall. Very pure and deep golden blonde colour, cristal clear as expected, with very strong, almost champagne-like, beautiful fizz; very thick and frothy, rocky, lacing, cream white, ’pompous’ head retaining well. Grainy and wheaty aroma, a bit sourish, grassy, hints of sourdough, apple peel, cava, lightly toasted bread, pear, kiwi, wet paper, bitter honey. Crisp and fruity taste, sour berries, starfruit and unripe peach, somewhat oily, smooth mouthfeel with strong, fizzy, minerally carbonation, a bit cava- or prosecco-like ’brut’ flavour, clear and refreshing wheat sourishness lasting till deep into the finish, where it is accompanied by a soft and pleasant bready maltiness and a subtle hint of grassy hop bitterishness providing structure and balance. Not very complex, as is usually the case with these filtered Weizens, but very decent for its style, refreshing and just fit for a sunny spring afternoon like this.

0,5 l bottle. I will never understand, why we need a Weizen Kristall. Anyhow. Dark golden in the glass and, as expected, clear. Two finger white head. More green apple than banana on the nose. Taste is less fruity, little bit malty, low bitterness. Not really bad.

Bottle. Gold in color. Gigantic, big fluffy head. Aroma was kind of like a traditional German lager. Taste was also like a German lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blonde pâle, translucide. Belle mousse blanche persistante.
Au nez blé léger, épicée un petit peu sucrée banane.
En bouche idem, avec le côté fruité un poil plus affirmé.
Pas mal, mais un peu plate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a thick white foamy head. Aroma is sweet of bread, yeast and banana. The taste is bittersweet of bready malt, wheat, banana and cloves. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A sweet, bready finish. Refreshing but not exciting.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Enjoyed at Munich, Germany. Pours a clear golden colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of white bread and wheat. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, wheat, rubber and very mild sweetness. Harsh mouthfeel and high carbonation. No complexity whatsoever. Simple and useless.
