Alehouse exclusive. An American style light bodied wheat ale that is refreshingly flavorful. Crystal wheat ale was inspired by Pyramid’s first beer in 1984 the wheaten ale, which was the first year round wheat beer brewed in America since prohibition

Draft at the Safeco Field brewpub. Pours crystal clear light coppery amber with a thin off-white head and plenty of lace. Neutral, maybe bready, sweaty nose. Tingly and light on the attack. Mid-palate is fairly neutral, maybe some toast and some corn sweetness.

Pours a clear gold with a thin white head that fades quickly. The aroma has some wheat and some characteristic fruit (hints of spiced bananas). But it also has some earthy, almost grassy, aromas. The flavor follows the nose: wheaty, malty, and spicy. But by the middle of the tongue the grassy, bitter flavors become too strong - it could be oxidation as it causes the beer to taste a bit stale. The finish is dry and crisp with light dose of hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is a bit too high in carbonation (I know this style is supposed to be heavily carbonated, but the body of the beer is virtually undetectable due to the sting of carbon dioxide). Overall, one of my least favorite brews in the sampler at the Pyramid Alehouse in Seattle.

An alright aroma. A light crisp flavor that isn’t too wheaty and has a little hop bite in the finish. A pretty nice beer.

Light and spicy wheat beer, much better then their hefe in my book. Pours light gold with a smooth white head. Slight haze to it. Citrus and banana aroma. Very crisp and refreshing on the palate, feels like high carbonation that brings the spices to life with a subtle honey and bready flavored malt base. I really enjoyed this one as a summer beer.

10 ounce sample tried at Sacramento, CA location. Spicy, floral, aromatic, lemony, lightly sweet aroma. A bit metallic as well. Decent aroma, but not really characteristic of a weizen. Transparent golden body with a small, white head. Sweet, biscuity, cereal-like malt flavors to start with some light, husky, wheat-like flavors in the middle. Finishes with some citrus lemon flavors. Rather uneventful and pretty straight-forward.

Draft at Pyramid Alehouse in Walnut Creek, CA. Poured a clear golden color. Head was white and left some good lace. Aroma and flavor were of weak banana and clove with fresh malty cereal grain. So so.
