Blonde. Clear. Nice white head. Draw in down and it laces the glass like a blanket. The aroma is a little sweet, bready and light. The flavor is full and light. A little spicy, a little wheaty. The finish is like a light gingerbread cookie. Onomatopoeia.

On tap at Gingerman Houston: Slightly cloudy lemon yellow in color. Weak floral perfume aroma but it was hard to detect. Flavor was some cereal malt with a slight hops tang aftertaste to it. Overall, it’s a decent brew but I have had better kristallweizen

Draft at Plano Ginger Man. Pours a light hazy golden with a white head. Lots of banana esters in the aroma. Light bodied and thin in the mouthfeel. This is sweet, with a flavor of pale wheat malts and banana esters, with a hint of clove and little detectable hops. Respectable for the style, but I always think of these as a Hefe’s less desirable sister.

Gold pour with a white head. Nose is wheat and fruits. Thin palate but, that’s pretty much expected, flavor is very fruity with a wheat finish.

Drank a pint at the Plano Gingerman.
The beer pours a clear golden yellow with a white head. The aroma is grain with some citrus and floral hops. The flavor is floral hops with some wheat, biscuit malt and lemons. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
