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.

Alengrin (1254) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Well-known example of a Kristallweizen, the filtered Maisels Weisse Original. Very thick, milk white, gradually collapsing head, clear golden blonde colour with lively sparkling. Pale malt sweetness, light sourish wheat, apple peel, rose petals, cloves, very light lemon and a vague sulphuric accent. Rounded, soft palate, apple, vague sourish wheat extending into the finish, which also has a very subtle floral hoppiness to it.

weihenweizen (1694) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours clear pale golden with big dense white head. Aroma is light cereal, medium/light body, light/medium carbonation, and good small bubble lacing. Taste is banana and cereal grains. The aroma is really light and the taste is light also, been a while since I had a kristallweizen.

Rune (7988) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2014
500ml bottle kindly shared by djoeye. Stable creamy white head, good lacing. Clear yellow-gold coloured body. Coriander and wheaty fruits on the nose. Taste of sweet banana mixed with bread and coriander spices. Mid-sweet ending. Smooth in the mouth. Just alright, on the average level (session at Finns, Tromsø 05.08.2014).

Flaske 500ml spandert av djoeye. Delt med ham og Rune på Nerstranda 5 Aug 14. Lys gylden. OK tett skum som etterlater litt lacing. Aroma av sitrusfrukter & banan. Smaken godt moden banan. Litt i søtligste laget.

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Flaske, 50 cl. Gyldengul og klar, stort hvidt skum. Dufter af brød, korn, moden banan, let citrus. Fremstår friskt og let-sødlig sur uden megen karakter, slet ikke humle-karakter. Før ingen fortræd, men 50 cl går man - jeg - i al fald hurtigt træt i.

sweet pilsner smell, taste is mostly of bubblegum with a finish that gives you a dry mouth...taste is maltier with low hops
