2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. This pours a lively, golden beer with a decent amount of white, creamy head on top. Aroma is wheaty, banana and very faint touches of vanilla. Flavour is medium sweet, typical weizen flavour actually. Carbonation is lively in the glass, but mellowed out in the mouthfeel. Very decent beer for it’s style for sure!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a very thick white head. Nose has some citrus elements in there with a hint of wheatiness. Implies a light drink, but actually feels slightly heavy. Taste is light smooth with just a hint of citrus coming through. Nice a light drink.

Not the expected orange color, but bright yellow. Looks like a lager. The aroma is typical "weizen-like". Full taste, with some slightly bitterness in the aftertaste.
Geen verwachte oranje kleur, maar een helder goudgele kleur. Lijkt op het eerste gezicht op een pils. Geen bitter aroma, maar een vol typisch weizen-aroma. Ook de smaak is typisch voor een weizen, met een heel licht bittere nasmaak. Lekker fris!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours crystal clear pale golden with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of grain, yeast and hops. Sourish, subtle taste of grain, enriched by the hoppy bitterness. Rich carbonation. A really nice Kristallweizen.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Hommage, Marburg... Clear golden Kristall color, bad head... Untypicall Weizen flavor, nothing compared to the real Hefeweizen...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (500ml). Pours like a typical filtered Weizen with a clear golden-yellow body and large fluffy white head. Banana, wheat and cloves on the nose with lemony citrus notes. Palate is rather thin and watery with a medium carbonation and bready malty sweet fruity flavours with a low bitterness. It is refreshing and drinkable but as always, lacks the body of and tastes like an attenuated version of the superior Hefe.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The usual weizen aroma albeit naturally without the yeast - ripe banana, lemony notes, bubblegum, clove and bready malt that’s quite pronounced. Dry, watery body, high carbonation. Malty flavour with fruity hints and some hoppy notes in the practically non-bitter finish. For what it is, it is a nice thirst-quencher.
