3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep red amber, and clear for a wizen, with a creamy, slightly off white head. This beer has a strong aroma, with the clove and banana coming from the yeast, and strong notes of cinnamon. The taste is sweet malt with hints of cinnamon up front, with the spicy tartness of a saison on the finish. As the beer warms the tartness becomes more pronounced, leaving a balanced and dry finish. Body is heavier than it looks due to the wheat.

12oz bottle from an inperson trade with mnmike, a kristallweizen from one of my favorite brewers, sure why not a crisp malty taste is quite nice, i’m not finding any spicy clove, but certainly a clove taste, no cinnamon though the color looks it. pretty tasty

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Weizen glass at 42°. Color is a deep honey with light carbonation and a rocky white head. Aroma is sweet with crystal malt and yeast. It has a lighter body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is slightly sweet with caramel, a hint of clove, tart apple and a bit of yeast. Aftertaste is slightly dry from the tart with the yeast giving a bread note. Overall its a great Kristallweizen.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an amber orange color with a fluffy white head. Scent is full of wheat with a slight bitter scent mixed with bananas. The taste has a similar taste that reminds me of biting into an apple. I know there is a lot of wheat to this beer but I’m getting more apple tasting hints. This is a smooth, tasty brew that is a great drink for the fall harvest weather.

Aroma of banana, cloves, a touch of sour. Copper colour with nice foamy white head. Taste is sweet banana, a bit of spices, doesn’t linger super long, nor is it particularly intense. A solid kristallweizen.

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.
