COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This gives ERDINGER Weissbier 'crystal clear' a sparkling and refreshing character which wheat-beer lovers appreciate, especially in summer.

Stew41 (1789) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2005
Dead clear and bright in the glass, as per the text book. Big creme brulee-like head upon pouring but settles down quicky. Good lacing. Nose shows some stewed fruit character - a bit worrying but does blow off. - with some generic lager notes. When I first drank the beer the flavours were fairly generic as well, making for a low key / boring beer...but the palate filled out nicely with cloves and spice and more weight as the beer warmed up. Good summer arvo style.

anders37 (18351) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2005
Clear pale golden colour. Long lasting white head. Has a weak aroma of bananas, some citrus aroma aswell. Malty flavour with some banana hints in the background. I miss the hefe in this beer. It is refreshing but it miss something.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Pours out your average cheapo beer pour, light golden, hayish looking. Aroma of light lemon and banana, a bit grassy. Flavor is light, very light with a sweet kick to mix in with the fore mentioned aromas. Mostly blah, but its something new.

demitriustown (1108) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Bottle from a Polish Market in Sterling Heights, MI. Huge billowing white head. Flavor is very mild that is slightly bitter, alcohol undertones, and a sweet. This wheat beer pours clear now I know why they call it Crystal Clear. Better than the other Erdinger bottle that I got that I think was bad. Nice refreshing Lawnmower-esque beer.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2005
500ml bottle. $2.99 at Broudys, Orange Park FL. Pours clear pale golden with a big, long lasting white head. Aroma is strong bubblegum and banana. Refreshingly crisp and mildly sweet, definitely a summertime brew. Tropical fruit flavors dominate. Mouthfeel is light and creamy. Fairly good, as kristallweizens go, nothing negative here.

heemer77 (5148) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 6, 2005
This poured with a huge white head, even in my hefe glass. The body is a medium and bright gold. The aroma is peaches and a hint of hay. There is also some tropical fruit, like mango in here. The taste is light with some hay and a little note of banana peel. As others have said, there are no bad flavors here. However, it lacks character of a full on hefe. This is a decent brew that would be good for summertime.

TBone (13358) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled (BB 05/2006)
Golden color, a big foamy off-white head. Lemony, malty harsh aroma, lacks all the good components of weizen aroma. Medium-bodied. Sugar is dominating flavor, only hints of wheat. Another useless kristallweizen.

MiP (13955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2005
Bottle. Clear golden colour. Rocky white head. Mouthfeel is OK, but there is not much wheat flavour in it. Still better than cheap lager...

BeerandBlues2 (10442) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Bottle. Pours clear honey gold with a huge rocky creamy off-white head that only slightly diminishes as the time passes; it remains until the end. Cellared oak wheat malt (straw, hay) aroma with light fruit (banana) notes. Creamy malt flavor with a light fruit background, well balanced, finish is lightly bitter. Creamy light body with a fizzy finish.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2005
(bottle) Clear golden colour with a big foamy head. Shy fruity and sweet malty aroma. Medium sweet flavour, medium body. Dense banana fruity taste with a malty background and a slight clovy and citric finish, not lasting but rather sticky. Not very convincing.
