It is what it is. Super clean, superb aroma. It is a wheat beer at it’s best. No bad attributes. Yes, I understand there are better beers, but it is exceptional for it’s kind. Great flavor combination, with good taste and aftertaste. I’m sorry, I’m partial to this brewery!

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2009 Very yummy brew that starts bitter but finishes slightly sweet. A nice, relaxing beer that should be enjoyed by everyone.

oh6gdx (22640) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2005
Bottled. Clear golden colour with huge white head. Fruity aroma. Sweet malty taste with hints of wheat. Sweet aftertaste, which doesn’t last that long.

DYCSoccer17 (3490) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Bottle. My first Kristalweizen. Mild DMS in the aroma turning more like a weizen with spritzy notes of bananas and yeastly breads in the nose. Fruity. Looks like budweiser with a big white fluffy head. Start is quite spritzy and carbonated without much taste. Kind of like tonic water. Grainy/corniness in the middle finishing bready and lightly lactic and sour with hints of bananas. This sort of tastes like 50% macro BMC and 50% average Weiss beer.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Bottle poured a cloudy golden yellow with a good heavy white head and a spice, banana aroma. Light malt and fruit flavor but had a bit of a metalic taste on the finish. Not bad overall.

The commercial description reads, "For those who desire a weissbier without yeast." Who is that? This has much the same aroma and taste as Franziskaner’s hefe-weizen, but lacks that extra dimension that the bottle conditioning adds. Less fruitiness, less depth and complexity of taste, less enjoyment. This is still a decent drink, but it pales in comparison to the real deal. I’ve found the same to be true with all of the Kristalweizens.

Dorqui (2145) - Brescia, ITALY - DEC 25, 2004
Yellow color much limpid and diamond. Much effervescent. Adherent foam and much long-lasting one. Fresh aroma. Much fizzy, nearly prickly. Medium persistence. Altogether pleasant even if I prefer the Dunkel version.

Bottle
Gold, with a hug white foamy head and crazy carbonation. The aroma is like the hefe-weissbeer, yet is lacking some of the wheat and seems a little bit more acidic. The banana and spices are alike though. The flavors are a bit thin. They are all there but none of them are all that bold. Wheat comes out the most and some citrus shows. The palate is a little tangy and the body is watery. It finishes dry and citrusy.
