COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Sigmund (5803) - Tau, - FEB 2, 2013
500 ml bottle, bought in Germany. ABV is 5.1%. Like the name says: crystal clear, pale yellow colour, moderate white head. Fairly strong aroma of ripe bananas and cloves, hints of citrus. The flavour is refreshing, with moderate notes of banana and cloves, but not nearly as good as the Original or Dunkel. Thin mouthfeel.

AtronSeige (996) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 12, 2015
Aroma: Medium banana sweeties. Very light clove. Appearance: Brilliantly clear, yellow body. Massive rocky white head. Good retention. Flavour: Medium bready, sweet. Medium clove. Light banana. Dry, crisp finish with lingering clove. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. High carbonation, crisp, carbonic sting. Overall: The clove is quite powerful in flavour, but near missing in aroma. Carbonation is too high, making the beer have a carbonic sting. 500 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 15A. Weizen/Weissbier

TedE (547) - 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
