Bottle. Sweet banana and clove aroma. Golden yellow color with moderate head - clear. Wheat malt flavor primarily with slight banana esters. On the watery side but that’s pretty typical of the style. One of the better Kristalls

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fruity aroma, malty fruity taste. Very easy-drinking and overall a very nice beer, but not as good as the unfiltered one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hefeweizen aroma, some banana and clove, though a bit more musky and subdued than the unfiltered version. Still pleasant, though. Clear medium golden with foamy white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Starts with nice wheat and banana-clove taste, though a bit of staleness or papery taste. Light hops, not bitter, and light carbonic acidity. After is very clean and mild, almost like a light beer. Drinkable, but I think I prefer the unfiltered versions.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden with a rocky off white head. Aromas are yeasty and sweet. Flavours are banana and yeast with sweetness on the finish. Explodes in the mouth - too much carbonation with a soda water flavour. Merely OK.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A pretty run of the mill Kristall. Quite carbonated, with some light banana and wheat and some saltyness in the finish, no as good as their regular hefeweisen, but still quite drinkable.
