This is a deep fox red with a tangy and bittersweet taste and is the best Krystal Weisen out there. It has complex flavor characteristics.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is one uniquely crisp, refreshing beer! I was impressed with the crisp aftertaste and malty finish for a beer this jubilant. The aroma is almost a bubble gummy type gummy bear feel to it...in an ever-striking pleansant fashion. I could call it floral with a hint of fruit or citrus, yet, there’s a certain malty finish that leaves no bitter aftertaste. They’ve captured a unique style here with this krystalweitzen and I would agree that this is a beer unlike any other I can think of.
The only drawback is the less than 5.0% ABV. I would like to see them add a little more ABV to this somehow.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass.
Aroma is heavy on banana, clove, some vanilla Similar to their Dancing Man Wheat.
Appearance is outstanding. Pour amber orange, and a frothy tan foam so thick was similar to a root beer float.
Taste has a medium sweetness and lightly sour.
Palate is light in body, slick and fizzy on the tongue.
Fun, different than average fall/winter beer.

Aroma is yeast, a hint of dark fruit/grapes and very funky. The flavor is bananas, berries/dark fruit, malts and a very noticeable funkiness all around and into the finish.

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