sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2004
Quite pale lager color, big foamy head. Yeasty citrus aroma, not as strong as in the hefeweizen. Sweetish banana flavor with a bitter finish. More harsh, watery and carbonated palate than in the hefeweizen. Kristallklar clearly cries for the missing yeast. This is what you get for removing the most important ingredient from a weizen.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Very pale, very clear. Thick frothy head, fully lasting. High level of carbonation. Smells slightly of bananas. Flavor is sweet but crisp. Nice lace all the way up and down the glass. Aftertaste leaves bananas lingering on the roof of my mouth.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Filtered clear straw color with large carbonated head and lots of lacing. The aroma is lighly citrusy with some malt tones and a little wheat. The flavor is balanced and clean, definate balance. Finished slightly watery and bland but not too bad at all. I don't know if I'd drink this again.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2004
Clear golden colour. Big head. Slightly hoppy nose. Crisp, citric, bready, slightly hoppy taste. The Club Weisse is a bit soapy, while the Kristall Klar is not. This could be, because I drank the Club Weisse from the bottle and the Kristall Klar from a glass. Nonetheless a decent Kristallweizen, but nothing special.

SpringsLicker (3289) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2004
I prefer the original Weizen over the Krystal style. Other than that, this is a decent brew. It has the head and color (although clear) and the aroma is intact as well. The filtering removes some of the flavor, but what is left is not bad. The filtering probably extends the shelf life a tad as well.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Medium gold in color with a gigantic head and brisk carbonation. Mild aroma that reminded me of some pilsners but with a touch of clove. Light and tangy with a soft wheat malt flavor and a finish that ended almost before it began. I liked it but really ought to save beers like this for the middle of July.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2004
No yeasty aroma, very clean. Big weise head. Smooth and a little wheaty on the palate. Clean and refreshing mouthfeel. Not as fullfilling as the hefe but just as tasty.

hershiser2 (1570) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Ugly pale color, no doubt, but look at that head! It's a good four inches and it doesn't appear to be going anywhere. Tons and tons of carbonation as well. That really makes up for the ugly color. A bit of bitterness in the nose, with a hint of banana?? A nice, pleasant taste, and yes, that was a hint of banana. A pretty damn drinkable beer... no complaints here.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2004 This is a very refreshing beer. It has a pale golden colour with a big foamy head. Aroma is malty with some fruit. Taste is malty and somewhat dry. Nice mouthfeel and smooth aftertaste.

Nice golden color with a frothy head, good retention. Nose is spicy with clove, maltiness, maybe a hint of paprika or cinnamon. Good mouthfeel, malty character with a clean, dry finish. OK. I guess this isn't a bad stand in for my wife's favorite (the now defunct Spaten Club Weisse).
