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

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2004
Clean yellow hue with good but fading head and good lace. The aroma hints of subdued citrus, some banana and clove, toasted biscuit, and dusty yeast esters. The taste is mildly fruity and crisp. Clean finish does display some wheat and spice, but isn’t very powerful (as is the case with most Krystalweizens). The mouthfeel is lively, clean and crisp, thin. Ovreall, a step up from American Wheats but below the standard hefes I love so much. Worthy of a buy and try.

Kristalweizens don't do much for me. Everything that is different or good about a weizen is filtered out. Comparable to other Kristalweizens however - average.

Great tasting beer. Goes with any type of food. One of my favorite erdinger beers

I thought that this beer was pretty good but I got food poisoning and was in the hospital later on that day so it wasn't that good of an experience.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2004
Huge white head that didn't hang around for long. The aroma was dusty, lemony, yeasty and slight banana. Taste wasn't full but I quite like it, it had some banana, some spice and some clove. An easy drinking weizen for me.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2004
Threw a big head, but ailed to provide much sign of carbonation. Aroma a touch fruity, but not much to speak of, not the same wheatiness as is present in the heffe. Al around not as good as the heffe - easy solution is to not bother buying it!

DanielBrown (3628) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2004
Bottle from the Offie, Leicester. Cack-handed pouring gave me an enormous white head. Pale gold colour, which looks worryingly weak. Sweet, subtle, slightly Battenburg aroma. This is a little disappointing - the wheat flavour is thin and patchy - replaced instead by malt. All in all this is a little too close to lager to be exciting. Crisp and prickly, but that just isn't enough - shame.

hopscotch (8542) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Surprisingly, I enjoyed this one. Clear, light-golden lager. Large, fizzy, white head diminishes to a small, well-retained, creamy head. The nose holds some licorice, mint, bisquit and honey notes. Well-balanced flavor. Good 'n' malty, but sufficiently hopped. Light toffee. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

Very light coloured. Banana and yeast in the aroma. Very thin and watery. Yeasty. Bad.

Golden color with a white head. The taste is kind of watery with notes of wheat malts and yeast. It has to be hot for me to drink a lot of these.
