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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle. Poured a medium yellow with a large white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was strong of yeast, light flowery hops and a straw malt with notes of banana. It tasted very light with the flavor being very yeasty and slightly bitter in the beginning and mellowed to a mild yeast flavor with a hint of banana and some spice. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall an OK light kristall weisse.

FatPhil (14155) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 26, 2016
500ml bottle (Tante Lisbeth, Berlin)
Is there a slice of lemon in this, as it’s a pure lemon aroma? Thinnish palate. Hints of bananas, just gentle wheat. OK, there was a slice of lemon hiding in the massive tight head. However, if that’s the way to serve it, that’s fine by me. Easy drinker - clean, but perhaps a bit dull too. Kristalls will rarely compare to a proper hefe. To be honest, the lemon was the best bit.

Marduk (6436) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 3, 2016
500ml bottle (Tante Lisbeth, Berlin). Clear golden color. Huge size, white head, stays. Looks fizzy. Citrus, sweet and very strong lemon in aroma. Well there is a slice of lemon floating in me beer. Sweet and lemony in taste. So watery and dull. Lemon is nice, but beer naah.

77ships (8211) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2016
(Kiev 2016) 500 ml. bottle. BBF 02.11.16. Clear indeed, sparkling golden, little fizzy egg-white head. Nose is dull banana, faint DE fish guts yeast, sweet grain, low wheat, touch watery. Taste is bit neutral banana, easy, low DE fish guts, neutral sweet, mellow apple, low cardboard. Sparkling. Overall, clean, easy enjoyable, tad bland, cardboard bit in the end got a bit to me & lessened my enjoyment a touch. This one pales next to the Weisse Original but I knew what I was getting into when I got a Kristallweizen, I rarely come across a Kristallweizen, wanted to tick one.
