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.

TedE (497) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2015
500ml bottle into weizen glass. Creamy sweet wheat/ banana nose, a bit sweet and sour. Very pale yellow beer with the usual towering white head. Light carbonation. Smooth and creamy in the mouth. Taste is bananas, cloves, even a little smoky umami. Citric hops at the end round it off. Great balance, great beer.

De geur valt nog goed mee, maar de smaak is niet echt mijn ding, een soort minderwaardige hoegaarden

VDuquerroux (634) - Airvault, FRANCE - APR 12, 2015
Bottle, 50cL. Home. A clear pale yellow beer ; big white head with a poor retention. Fruity aroma (citrus, light banana), clove (light). Light to medium sweet, light dry bitter refreshing. Light body, thin texture, average to fizzy carbonation, short fruity finish. Overall, average OK weissbier ; thin.

bottle from unknown place. pours golden with an inch of white foam. doesn’t leave a ton of lacing. has a bit of banana on the nose. A bit malty on the tongue. fades on the tongue though it finishes clean enough. decent for style but there are definitely better than this.

szeli (62) - GERMANY - MAR 18, 2015
Komplett klar, schöne Erscheinung im Glas.Bananenaroma vorhanden, allerdings nicht sehr stark. Generell recht wenig Aroma.Auch im Geschmack die Weizentypische Banane vorhanden, auch hier auch dezent. Kein starker Weizengeschmack. Die typische Hefe fehlt natürlich. Schwache Bittere. Nachtrunk sehr kurz.
