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

hefevice (72) - Brisbane beer desert, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2005
Bottle. I don’t believe this, finally a kristall that I actually like better than its hefe stable-mate. Looks good on the pour, a clear light gold with a dense white head and plenty of life. On the nose while it is more attenuated in the phenols than you would expect from a hefe, there is plenty of ester (banana) there on top of a good malty foundation. The taste starts sweet and malty as expected, there is a very slight hint of the banana in the aroma, and it finishes with just the right amount of bitterness and a little toastiness. Although it is more subtle than you would expect from a hefe, this is more than made up for by the balance. The carbonation is much better than the hefe version as well, which improves the mouthfeel considerably. This is a very refreshing and well balanced beer.

Good but doesn’t hold a candle to the other Erdinger. Still bloody good though.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 1, 2005
500 ml bottle. Almost clear, slightly translucent golden body, thick lasting smooth creamy head...grassy, faintly caramel-accented nose, touch of lemon...malty, lightly swet body, bit of late sourdough...fairly dull, on the whole.

ALLOVATE (2380) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2005
Tasted from the bottle, into a tall stein. Rose a humungous white head of foam that erupted over the sides of the glass, and lasted ’til the very end. The body a clear gold, with evident high carbonation. Subtle, almost too subtle, sweet pasty wheat and banana aroma. Highly effervescent across the tongue, this has the body of a German pilsner, is quite sweet upfront and refreshingly crisp into the short swallow. Sadly lacking in lactic sourness, yeast, wheat zest and the normally associated wheat bier esters and phenols. I am no real fan of filtered wheat beers, and this is no exception, but there is nothing bad I could say about it.

Geiserich (3339) - Linz, AUSTRIA - FEB 23, 2005
Aroma is sourly, wheaty, flowerly. Golden color, o.k. head. Taste has wheat, light sweetness, quite plain. Light grainy and sourly. A bit light, dry finish. Overall, quite tasteless boring Kristall.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 Great Whear Beer.Sweet, fruity taste which is great for hot days. Really impresses with the quality of this beer

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2005
All looks, not much substance. Big fluffy white head, clear golden color. Faint sweetness in the aroma. some slight banana esters in the flavor with just a touch of wheat tartness and light bitterness. Quite refreshing on the hot summer day when sampled.

larsniclas (5586) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2005
Bottled. Golden with a huge white head. Faint aroma and flavour. Sweet and malty. Not very weissbier-like at all.

jgentgesdo (666) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Half-liter. Pours translucent golden with a large, frothy off-white head that is rapidly diminishing and leaves reasonable lace. Nose is very faint and soapy. The beer is sweet and wheaty with honey and cinnamon making an appearance. No alcohol character. Ends with carbonation and a nice creamy mouthfeel, very slight bitterness. I don’t get much banana, but my last beer was a good hefe, so I may have banana overload. Not bad.
