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.

Alengrin (3884) - BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2015
The Kristallweizen in this classic Weissbier series, 50 cl bottle from an Albert Heijn supermarket. Forms the expected thick, dense, frothy, rocky, light yellowish white, very regularly structured head, over a cristal clear beer of the purest golden blonde colour, with lively sparkling. Aroma of dried banana and banana peel, unripe pear, cooked pasta and notably soapy wheat, soaked white bread, refreshing lemon zest (coming across a bit as lemon soap in combination with the wheat malt), cloth, cream cheese, sweaty grains, light bubblegum and faint cloves, in all very typical for the style, but overly cooked green cabbage (DMS) as well, often a sign of shortened cooking times apparently, something which should not come as a surprise from an industrial brewery. Refreshing onset of subdued fruitiness, hints of pear, starfruit and a lot of banana, bubblegum accent too with a featherlight lemony acidity around it, medium carbo, supple and slick body in which both the sourish, soapy wheat and the very pleasantly bready barley come through in perfect balance; somewhat oily but otherwise thin mouthfeel, with fading maltiness and wheatiness in the finish as well as retronasal, not unpleasant phenols (the classic Weissbier cloves aroma). Could use a tad more noble hops to give more structure to the finish (though there is a very faint lingering earthy bitterishness to it in the end); otherwise simply a decent Kristallweizen, bit generic as these filtered Weizens tend to be, but surely quenching especially due to the long-lasting wheat sourishness. I do, however, prefer both the Hefeweizen and Dunkelweizen versions well over this.

Dummi (27) - - SEP 15, 2015
Estupendo aspecto inicial de color dorado transparente, vivacidad media y con una bells espuma muy blanca, espesa y persistente. Aroma a pan fresco, flor blanca y fruta madura. Sabor a pan fresco, fruta ligeramente dulce, con hierbas cortadas recientes y cierto regusto a especia ligera. Una cerveza con personalidad y con un final muy agradable.

Benzai (11844) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes and Thompson. Clear yellow golden color, average to medium sized off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is wheat, lightly sweet. Taste wheat, lightly sweet. Yeah, exactly the same. Just don’t get anything else. Decent though.

brewerale (142) - - AUG 20, 2015
Dourada, translúcida e com ótima formação de espuma de média duração. Notas amanteigadas, discreto frutado, um pouco de lúpulo e boa presença de malte. Corpo leve, final curto e maltado com quase nenhum amargor.

Dracks på Gröna Lund, grumlig, vacker öl. Färgen är magisk och smaken söt. Bra öl att dricka med kompisarna efter jobbet.

Tognetta (532) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 3, 2015
Dourada, boa formação de espuma (branca), boa persistência, cremosa. Aroma intenso de banana, trigo, cereais, em menor intensidade cravo, baunilha, um leve amargor, a maior diferença para a trigo "hefe" é a menor presença do fermento no aroma. Paladar um pouco mais ácido que as não filtradas, dulçor leve/médio, praticamente ausência de amargor. Corpo médio, cremoso, carbonatação leve. Aftertaste com leve acidez, sabor de banana duradouro, bem equilibrado. Uma ótima trigo, como era de se esperar da Paulaner, não conheço muitas desse estilo, mas vou procurar outras para comparar.

Gangstergafje (416) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2015
The beer looks just like s pilsner. The color is a light golden clear. There are a few nice bubbles rising to the top. The beer pours almost no foam; the foam that is created is white and rough. The smell is nice. The smell has a banana like sweetness, very fruity. There is also a malty bread like aroma. the bread is more present in the taste. Besides a bread taste, there is also some sweetness and a refreshing hop taste. Quite nice.
