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 (799) - 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.

De geur valt nog goed mee, maar de smaak is niet echt mijn ding, een soort minderwaardige hoegaarden

VDuquerroux (608) - Airvault, FRANCE - APR 12, 2015
Bottle, 50cL. Home. A clear pale yellow beer ; big white head with a poor retention. Fruity aroma (citrus, light banana), clove (light). Light to medium sweet, light dry bitter refreshing. Light body, thin texture, average to fizzy carbonation, short fruity finish. Overall, average OK weissbier ; thin.

DiarmaidBHK (3688) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2015
bottle from unknown place. pours golden with an inch of white foam. doesn’t leave a ton of lacing. has a bit of banana on the nose. A bit malty on the tongue. fades on the tongue though it finishes clean enough. decent for style but there are definitely better than this.

szeli (28) - GERMANY - MAR 18, 2015
Komplett klar, schöne Erscheinung im Glas.Bananenaroma vorhanden, allerdings nicht sehr stark. Generell recht wenig Aroma.Auch im Geschmack die Weizentypische Banane vorhanden, auch hier auch dezent. Kein starker Weizengeschmack. Die typische Hefe fehlt natürlich. Schwache Bittere. Nachtrunk sehr kurz.

Jow (2669) - New York, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle at home thanks to Roman. Crystal clear golden beer with a fluffy electric white head that dissipates relatively quickly. Fruitiest nose on a krystall I’ve had. Tastes of banana candy, slight herbal, wheat, some vanilla bean. Very smooth creamy palate. Nice.

DanielBrown (4096) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle at Pure Bar and Kitchen, Birmingham. Very good. I think Kristalweissen could be my favourite style. Tartness and sharpness is great. Cloves aplenty. Super refreshing. See through. Reco mended.
