2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Clear and pale golden colour with a big lacy foamy white head. Dusty and yeasty sweet wheat-malty aroma with strong notes of banana, slightly clovy. Sweet wheat-malty and banana-fruity taste, cripy mouthfeel, moderate body, dense clovy notes in the slim finish. All in all a nice Kristallweizen.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Malty, fruity aroma, plenty of wheat and citrus with lighter additions of white bread with butter and honey alongside touches of clove and spicy hop. Light sparkling golden color with a voluminous white head that settles. Flavor profile is lightly sweet and malty to start, becoming fruitier throughout and culminating with some gentle tartness, banana, clove and lemon, perhaps some lingering tea leaf, herbal hop flavors and cake. Highly effervescent, gently acidic mouthfeel with a light-medium body. Mild and unassuming.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Light golden clear colour with nice fizzy head. Great aroma of wheat and bread. Very disapointed taste for a wheatbeer, very light flavour og wheat that ends up little watery...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (from Sainsburys). Aroma of banana (medicine), and odd grassy lager like hops. Sweet but quite thin again suggesting cheap lager.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from bottle. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a tall, frothy, white head. A mild, banana and clove aroma predicts the flavor with the exception of a floral hop addition. Semi-sweet, medium-bodied and well-carbonated. A well-made, yet unchallenging beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear light yellow with a massive off-white head. Aroma is clove, apples,dusty yeast. Taste is cookie, bready, lightly sweet malts. Light bodied and highly carbonated. Similar to the hefe, but more malt emphasis, quite restrained esters in the taste. Impressive for a kristall, but I need more bananas.

well, an incredible kristall, exremely complex with a biterfinish. So much going on, candy sugar, vanillar, fruits with some hints of lemon. This is the best kristall ever, and that´s a fact!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A golden beer with a foamy white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is quite lagerish, grassy notes hidden behind a little banana. The taste is lemony and a bit wheaty with more sweet banana and maybe a little vanilla. Thin and uncomplicated.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2005 Bottle, from Sainsburys. Easy drinking wheatbeer thats almost like a lager. Sweet with some fruity esters, full of flavour really. Rerate: slightly more bland than I recall.
