3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle, at Cardinal, Stavanger. ABV is 5.2%. Pale yellow colour, crystal clear like the name says. Large to moderate head. Typical weissbier aroma, fruity with bananas and cloves, but the the aroma is not as strong as you’ll get from a hefe-w. Crisp and spritzy mouthfeel. Moderate cloves and tolerable hops in the flavour, but boring compared to the hefe. Why filter away the goodies? Short aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Sweetish, acidic, yeasty aroma with remote notes of vinegar. Flavour is inoffensive. Slightly sweetish with weak yeast notes. Sweetish finish with some metallic notes. Everybody seems to be getting banana from this one, but I can’t seem to find it

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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
