Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2013
A big two and half fingers of head on a hazy, straw colored body. Looks great. The aroma is banana bread and orange, faint overall. The taste is moderately bitter with a light fruit sweetness and a banana finish. Crisp texture with moderate carbonation and medium body. This is a great kristalweizen.

UXO (819) - CANADA - JUL 31, 2015
Appearance: crystal clear pale straw with a fat finger of rocky white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: muted, light wheat, banana, bubblegum. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Palate: light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry crisp finish. (3/5) About what I expected for such an aggressively polished beer: the filtration seems to have stripped out some flavour, resulting in flavours and aromas being somewhat muted. Still pleasant, but it could stand to be more emphatic. (12/20)

AgentAle (1083) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2015
Aroma is sweet grain, clove, banana esters, and citrus. Taste is very light and sweet what’s and citrus. A light bitterness remains at end. Appearance is a clear straw with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

MarkoNm (1510) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 30, 2015
Pours perfectly clear golden color, topped with a fine white head. Familiar aroma of wheat, bananas and some gentle spices. Taste mildly sweet, wheaty with some mild final bitterness. Some gentle soury feel in the finish as well. Nice one, a bit more gentle take on weizens but nice.

metalspice (300) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2015
Lyst strå med høyt skum som forsvinner raskt. Lett sitrus, hvete og noe krydder i duften. Smaken følger duften. Både lukt og smak er for lett og flyktig formin smak, men ølet er friskt med en tørr avslutning.

Taste sweet and toasted wheats, fruity. Nice finish with spice and fruity yeast notes. Good carbonation and lightish in body. Failry good.

RCx240 (120) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 10, 2015
Pours a pale golden colour, with a thick, foamy white head. Good retention, bubbles vigorously. Aroma is yeasty, doughy, with hints of coriander and clove. Tastes like malt, wheat, slightly earthy, with underlying hints of citrus. Body is light, texture is thin and slick, carbonation is vigorous. Finishes crisp, with faint, lingering spice notes. Pretty nice beer for a hot day on the patio.

bytemesis (4649) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle; nice to be able to pick up one of my least tried styles at Bevmo (at least until Joe adds Turnip Ale, of course). Pours, well, crystal clear orange, medium white head, dissipates slowly leaving good residual and lacing. Aroma is wheat, lemon and cardboard. Missing the banana clove thing of a normal Hefe. Flavor is light sweet, very light bitter, wheaty, lemon, a hint of banana. Medium light body. Meh

Bottle. Yellow, heavy white head. Arom of aluminum can. Taste of nothing, but ok on warm summer days.
