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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours light yellow with a thin white head. I need to try my German Weizens to know what I am talking about with this category. Some spice and some citrus. Nothing special at all.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow, fine white head. Yeasty aroma with some banana and citrus notes. Also yeast in the flavor with a tart citrusy finish. Rather thin for a weissbier, but it is a kristallklar after all...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden. Clove dominates the aroma, but there is notes of citrus as well. Malt presence and too much carbonation in the flavour.
