Pours an awesome butterscotch colour with soft white head. Awesome banana aromas and some clove too. Sweet. Tastes like bananas, and wheat. Finish isn’t too bitter...just a great bevearge.

12oz bottle. Clear amber pour with a light white head. Some lacing. Nose is banana and brown sugar. Sort of a weird hefe/dubbel taste to me. One of the few NG beers I haven’t been all over.

12 ounce bottle pour. $7.49 per 6 pack. Very similar to Back 40 Bock. Average german-like-style beer.

Pours medium amber. head lingers. Nose is bananas, sweet bread, peanut butter, strong bubblegum. Flavor is complex fruitiness, light vanilla, and again bubblegum. Crisp finish, dry and low bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Generous banana aroma, esters, lightly yeasty. Sweet. Big head, ruby amber color, clear. Frothy, but limp at the end, and thin flavor. Disappointing. Bottle.

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is dark golden colored with a lasting white head. Too dark for the style. The aroma is similar to a dunkel weizen, with wheat and some dark fruit presence. A bit sweet and malty. I would prefer a lighter color and body, with less malt presence. Not what I look for in a beer of this style. Overall, this was just ok.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of pepper, beechwood; impressions of clove, light cinnamon and banana. Appearance is translucent chestnut brown with bubbly tan head. Flavor matches the nose; the clove and banana are predominant; the finish is slightly peppery with some sweet gum. The body is medium/full, the texture is sticky and the carbonation is soft. Awesome.

This may be my first Kristallweizen. A filtered Hefeweizen, but it still retains all the best flavors.

12oz bottle shared by durhambeer - thanks, Bob! Faintly clouded amber pour, with gold tints peeking through. Medium, crisp carbonation. Don’t know what I was expecting but was surprised to find the spice and so forth in the nose. Lively, full bodied, but the taste was distractingly close to "holiday" beers. Okay.

Bottle-thanks to a good friend in Southern WI for shipping me some New Glarus stuff! December 2012-pours bright copper hue with a fizzy white head-crystal clear with medium carbonation. nose is bigtime banana and some wet cardboard/cereal notes. maybe a bit on the old side. flavors exhibit sour grains and ripe banana. Very round body here-lots of character however, i think im being a bit generous on the score here. this wasnt a very refreshing beer like it should be and had some off flavors however, I have never had a good krystal weiss before, so its hard to compare it to others.
