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.

Clear yellow with a medium head. Corriander aroma. Wheaty taste and very dry. Much more tasty than I figured after seeing it.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - NOV 24, 2004
Pours cloudy golden with an average white head. Aroma is similar to a hefewiezen, but toned down a bit. Flavor is the same as a hefe but more subtle. More crisp however. Decent. More interesting than enjoyable.

my first time having this style. A very malty bread like presece with some citrus notes. Yellow body almost clear with a full white head which seemed too last.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2005 Bottle. Very nice apple and banana aroma - pretty distinct for a Kristall. Clear dark yellow color. Primarily malt flavor with light sweet fruitiness - banana and cherry - very mild hops finish. This is a very ful-bodied Kristall - one of the best of its type - Franziskaner is a very reliably good Weizen in all its types

Light Gold Coloring With Big White Head. I Have to Admit, After Seeing the Color of the Brew, I Was Worried, but It Wasn’t Bad! Malty, Coriander Spice...Dry at the End... Smooth and Drinkable.

IHCNavistar (93) - Orinda, California, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Bottle. Aroma is of fruit, with very strong emphasis on banana and other citrus aromas. Slight hops aroma. Pours a light gold color. Head is *VERY* thick and pillowy, lasting damn near forever. Great lacing. Flavor is estery, with banana being most prominent. Some hops and wheat. Carbonation is a little too light. Still, a repeat buy!

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Wheaty aroma, grain, light citrus, but mostly estery banana and fruity hops. Clear golden body with pillowy white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium-high, efferevescence. Same Franziskaner taste, but a little cleaner and thinner than the unfiltered version. Banana notes, wheaty, still some yeasty characteristics, but light. Crisp hops. Finish is smooth, with fruity clean after.

10.25.04 500ml bottle. Pours crystal clear straw color with a giant head that actually overflowed my Schneider Weisse glass, despite it having been freshened. Light aromas of banana, light spice, slightly barny. Flavor is not fruity-sweet like many wheat beers, rather dry, a bit on the sour side, but with an out of place, sugary sweetness that lingers. Some citric tartness, chalky even. Quite quaffable. I’m not sold on the style.
