Crystal-clear brilliance and lively sparkling carbonic acid are the outstanding features of Maisel’s Weisse Kristall and make it a wonderfully exuberant refreshment. Due to the special composition of sun-ripened wheat varieties and brighter barley malts, fermented and aged with our special white yeast, unfolds at first sip a balanced bouquet of different fruit flavors of ripe banana to a slight citrus note, which mixes at departure with the typical, slightly spicy wheat beer flavor. A predicate for a particular quality.

Bottle 50 cl from Bier-Bienne (CH). Luminous blonde with a pure white headsticking to the glass. Aromas of banana, chewing gum, spices. The taste had similar nuances with apple, lemon, toffy and clove. Lively and very fresh beer.

500ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Clear light golden honey colour; One and a quarter finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Very good sticky lacing and very fizzy carbonation; Pretty fragrant aroma of malt, with banana, wheat malt, light vanilla, light caramel, cloves, spices and very light grass; Minimal sweet taste of malt, with fairly light tartness, wheat, faint banana, light yeast, light cloves, lemon, and light but sharp grass; Close to light body, thin and fairly crisp palate; Mouth feel is quite high-carbo, wheaty, still quite yeasty weiss in a low tartness background. Minimal fruity tastes bar banana and lighter cloves, very clean tasting. Alright… Hoppiness is faint grass nose, lemon and light sharp grass in taste. Testable low-fi bitterness, light wheaty finish; Slightly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: Standard Kristallweiss, certainly not as colourful as the Hefeweiss proper, but also has no off-taste and with a bit of hops to boost. All-round play-it-safe cleaniness, good for pulling up your feet and chill out after a day of hard work.

(Flasche) Es hat eine Farbe, wie klare Apfelschorle mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist schwach, etwas etwas grüner Apfel, süßlich, Stroh, (typisch für Kristallweizen). Der Geschmack ist etwas getreidig, etwas süßlich, sonst grüner Apfel und etwas dumpfes.
