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.

On tap @ Gourmet Haus Staudt. Clear golden pour with a white head. Sweet banana and bready malt on the nose. A lot of grass, clove, and some citrus peel. Some mild doughy qualities. The flavor is fairly sweet and banana forward. Decent amount of bread and sweet malt. Mild grassy bitterness and some lemon peel. Not bad.

jjsint (920) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle at Pure Bar and Kitchen, Birmingham. Yellow, clear, staid with little obvious carbonation. Aroma more astringent than expected, hiding the usual banana/clove bouquet. Taste is sweet with more of the banana essence of a Hefeweizen. Carbonation more obvious in the palette. Refreshing but unexciting and frankly a little bit sickly.

SinH4 (251) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Crystal clear orange appearance, lively carbonation. Aroma is not much - the yeasts are missing. Taste is sweet bananas and some malt sweetness. Not much more there. Soft and smooth weizen body. Very easy to drink, but Kristall is really not my type of beer.

Bif (1559) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a light straw color with a big head. Aroma of banana, bubble gum, fruit sweetness and grass. Taste of banana, fruit sweetness, bit of yeast, and herbs. Decent bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, well carbonated and a bit short on flavor. Decent beer but not one of myfavorite styles.

bonkiedeaap (310) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle from TrinkGut in Kleve. The beer has a golden color and a rich white head with moderate carbonation. In the aroma tones of yeast, banana, a little citrus. The taste is light sweet with tones of bananas and citrus and in the background there is a little sourness and light bitterness from the yeast. The finish is fruity and a light bitter. Bitterness is still noticable after a minute.
