(500 ml bottle, bought in Denmark.) Filtering off the goodies - what an idea! But that’s what Kristall Weissbiers are all about, for the benefit of people who wouldn’t dream of drinking a beer they can’t see through. With Franziskaner Kristallklar they get at least a decent aroma of banana and cloves, the beer is pale yellow and crystal clear indeed, pours with an enormous head. Flavour is crisp and moderately sweet, some cloves are there, but of course it’s not as good as the Hefe. Still a nice refreshment.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Bottle, weisse glass. Crystal clear pale yellow with a white head. Aroma or slight banana and clove, otherwise mostly malty and helles-like. Flavor is malty and crisp. Banana and clove is barely noticable. Basically a lawnmower beer with a touch of character that is easy to drink.

mjg74 (2733) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2008 Pours a pale golden color with a big foamy white head on top. Smells of grain, with a little bit of sweetness. Starts with a sweet grainy taste. A little bit of skunk towards the end. Pretty enjoyable.

Clear golden with a medium white head. Smells quite skunky with the head. Once the head diminishes it smells similar to a hefe with banana and clove smells. Malty wheat taste with some hint of banana. Not great tasting, but not too shabby either.

A fine german weisse. A bit sweet.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2004
Bottle. Light, light, light body with a HUGE foamy white head. After it settles, it looks like champagne. Notes of yeast, banana, cardboard, wheat, and suntan lotion come out. Very unpleasant taste that is hard to enjoy. I would not have this agin unless I was forced to.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Pours golden and clear with a white head that lingers and lots of sticky lace. Aroma is malt. Flavor is light spice maybe some clove. Malty and with a very faint fruit taste. Clean finish. It is a decent brew but I would never chose this over a regular Hefe, there is just something not right about it.

Pours gold with lasting head. Aroma is yeasty, and so is taste. Did not really enjoy this one.
