4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Botte @ home. Clear color and a head that leaves some lacing. Nose is waek and lighter than usual for a weissbier. Notes of banana, hay and a hint of sourness and cardboard, also hints of cloves. Taste is dry, slightly sour with hay, wheat and banana, and a dry banana-peel astringent aftertaste. Not bad, but nothing special.

Nose is dry, hey, a little cardboard, nothing to it. Appearance is suspiciously larger like.... Taste, dry start leading to a touch of banana and bubble gum. It’s like a wheat beer with all the flavor drained out. A genuinely rubbish beer, browsing the other reviews I’m surprised by how well like this seems to be by some.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I remember being highly impressed by the first Kristallweizen I tried: Well, I was looking forward to this, and I have to say aroma wise, the typical spicy clove and banana notes fair leapt into the nose, and it looked fantastic: Bright crystal clear with an impressive densely packed white head. However, despite the aroma, the taste was restrained, muted even. A bit of fruity sweetness, and some dry banana, but a definite lack of spiciness. Fizzy carbonation, not so much of a finish, more a petering out. Perhaps would have been better colder, but for me not a patch on the Whiestephaner version.

Poured from 500ml bottle into Weizen Glass. Wheaty aroma. Poured deep gold and clear with a 2 finger white head. Tastes very light and refreshing. Gently sweet and wheaty. Very drinkable, highly recommended.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tesco. Golden beer with medium head. Aroma of wheat and a little yeast. Taste is some yeast, a bit of spice, wheat and some pale malts. Watery. Disappointing.
