Paulaner Weissbier Kristallklar features a more intense wheat malt taste than its Hefeweissbier. There’s a fine sparkling clarity to it, achieved by a very special early-filtering method.

Ingredients: water, wheat malt, barley malt, hops.

Beeronaut (176) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle - tried for a lugh, not a wheat beer fan at the best of times; was new in so thought I’d give it a go on a warm day after work. Well, giving it a whiff I’m pleasantly suprised by the aroma, it’s pretty much spot on for the style: yeasty, doughy, citrus and banana with a slightly curious and distant smokedness to it (maybe it’s my imagination playing tricks!) But, that’s pretty much where any praise ends. It appears as you would expect, golden/pale pretty much lager like, obviously no cloudiness, quite rapid carbonation, very little head however. The flavour leaves alot to be desired; firstly your stung by the intense carbonation, then some flabby flavour emerges, starting with yeast, wheat and banana, the mid section tastes ok-ish then suddenly turns to water in the finish leaving behind a sort of gasy, over carbonated lager taste in the mouth competing with banana and citrus. Unblanaced (or maybe unhinged)It seems to me that this beer is confused about what it is: Lager or Wheat beer? At times it almost reminds me of a poorly made fruit lager/beer mutant. I can’t get over the flippin’ carbonation, it’s just over the top. After two sips I’m almost full with bloatedness. I probably had the beer ever so slightly to cold, but in many ways I’m glad, as at any other temperature I dread to think what other flavours may lurk. I’m sure Kristall Weiss has it’s roots in Germany, but in my opinion this is the equivalent of making up such a thing as "Pale Stout." It just doesn’t work. Weiss beer may not be my poison but I still respect well made ones like Unrtl and Pyraser. It’s only got the marks it has due to it’s aroma being relativley true to form. If this were a human being, it would be a Ladyboy from Thailand - CONFUSED!

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2009
bottle, pours clear light gold, tall white head. Strong wheat aroma with some bannana and a thin alcohol note. Watered down malt with only a faint amount of wheat flavor. Tons of wheat aroma, no flavor. Some spice in the finish, but overall tastes more like a pale lager than a weissen.

Bottle 50cl. @ home.
Clear light to medium yellow orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, wheat, moderate yeasty, banana, light notes of rubber. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. Okay but a bit industrial weiss. [20090110]

dnoaksson (758) - , SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2009
En trevlig flora av smaker, varav flera bara låter sig antydas. Typiskt fruktig. Ett sänke är att att den saknar pondus, en tydlig botten. Smakerna skingras för fort.

Skinnyviking (7942) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle. High creamy and lasting white head. Clear golden body. Powerful sweet banana pear aroma. Heavily carbonated banana flavor with far more bitterness and expected. Long bittersweet aftertaste.

Russo (1917) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2008
Bottled. Pale yellow color that start with a nice cream and keep a lace until finish. Aroma is malty and fruity, notes of banana. Flavor is some sparkly fruity, a little watery and refreshing. Mouthfeel is quite dry and sweety. I dont knowhow to explaind that. :)
