3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear pale golden body with a large white head. Aroma of cloves, banana and yeast. Lemon is in the taste along with the cloves, medium body, also I noticed some bubblegum. A good wheat beer to start your journey of this style of beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a brilliant straw color. It is well carbonated and is topped by a thick off-white colored head. The aroma is lightly sweet with a mix of clove, grain, banana, and a bit of hoppy spiciness. The beer is quite crisp up front, it is followed by a soft fruity middle and finishes with a light astringent bitterness. There is some banana and clove notes here, they are a bit muted. This is a nice quaffable beer, nothing to get too excited about, but it is a good quality beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with huge lofty head. Rich clean flavor with a lemony touch and a crisp maltiness. A little skunkish but not from exposure. Creamy and certainly has that malt liquor flavor but it comes off well with the help of peppery hops. Not too sweet. In fact a little on the dry side. Quite good.
