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 (6107) - 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.

Farven er lys gyldengul, med en stor flot hvid skumkrone. Aromaen er banan og honning (?). Smagen er let frugtagtig. Meget behagelig øl.

Leighton (16259) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2015
Draft at Bamberger Weissbierhaus during the Bamberg Jolly. Pours perfectly clear gold, effervescent, with a fluffy, pure white head. Good stuff, moderately sweet, with some sugary wheat, white bread, too. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, simple and sugary, with more mellow wheat notes. Basic but alright.

Fragrance malty, sweet, corn, wheat component is felt only partially. Taste light, refreshing, with grassy tones. The wheat sour aftertaste prevails almost punched perfume notes, at the end of a little bitter.

AtronSeige (1085) - 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
