UPDATED: JAN 3, 2004 This beer takes out the cloudy characteristic of the Franziskaner beer family. This beer looks like a normal beer. Same quality flavor as the rest of the Franziskaner beers.

JonMoore (1972) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2004 Bottle. Poured a great looking pale, golden colour, with a large foamy, white head. Aroma is malt, hops and bananas, some spice. Crisp and very refreshing. Taste is malty, fruity with a nice dry finish and slightly bitter aftertaste. Pretty carbonated, but smooth with a great mouthfeel. Excellent.

A great kristall. Good flavor and not too dirty for a kristall weisse.

It is what it is. Super clean, superb aroma. It is a wheat beer at it’s best. No bad attributes. Yes, I understand there are better beers, but it is exceptional for it’s kind. Great flavor combination, with good taste and aftertaste. I’m sorry, I’m partial to this brewery!

0,5l bottle. A clear golden Kristallweizen with long head. Sweet aroma of banana and wheat. Soft, malty, fruity, and lightly sour taste. An enjoyable beer.

corkyrory66 (836) - BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2014
Munichoise cristalline de 5 % abv en 50 cl, avec une superbe capsule reproduisant le moine repu. Malt de froment et malt d’orge, eau à 200 m de profondeur, houblon de Munich. Couleur jaune paille brillante comme le cristal. Magnifique. Clarté d’une pureté absolue, comme la loi bavaroise de 1516. Bulles en colonne fine centrale et bien vive, superbe. Mousse bien blanche qui devient un nappage soft. Arômes de blé, houblon, fruits blancs, levure. 1ère bouche soyeuse à la splendide ouverture sur du malt fin et du houblon. Arrière-bouche très équilibrée, belle amertume, et précision due à la qualité de l’eau. 2ème avec une très belle suite sur du malt clair. Arrière-bouche très longue pour ce type de bière. 3ème nez un peu citronné. 3ème bouche un peu fruitée, avec beaucoup de saveur. Arrière-bouche remarquable en équilibre. La longueur ne faiblit pas, mais est limitée par ses ingrédients bien sûr, sauf l’eau qui demeure un argument exceptionnel dans cette bière. La veine de levure est intéressante. Les jambes sont remarquablement groupées, unies. L’alcool correspond au genre, et respecte la fine perception des qualités de la bière. La finale est sans erreur. CONCLUSION : bière qui est un régal dans le genre, largement sous-cotée sur le site. Je pourrais acheter cette bière rien que pour sa transparence et la qualité de son eau. A l’heure où on fait des bars à eaux, rien n’est trop beau !!!
