knights97 (107) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2008
golden body with a thin body, easy to drink, crisp taste of wheat, nothing more than a good beer to drink a few on a hot day

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle: Clear, pale gold with no head. Corny, grainy aroma. Thin, pseudo-sweet, sour flavors kind of like unripe vegetables. The flavor escapes the tongue quickly and in this case, I guess it isn’t bad. Ok.

IndianaRed (2584) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle Pours a pelucid light yellow/orange witha light and quick frothy head. Light grain aroma. A bit vegitative and papery. Lively palate and a slightly sweet cereal falvor. Not much of the classic German Kris notes. Nice try Pyramid.

BuckeyeBoy (2863) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle Pours out a clear gold topped with a white head. Aroma of wheat and malt. Crisp tast of sweet wheat. My first German Kristal

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Clear golden color with a moderate off-white head that settles to a solid lid of creamy bubbles. Dry, floury wheat aromas. A touch of fruit, but not much there otherwise. Crisp and clean in flavors. That said, not many flavors. Light sweet wheat, hints of light fruit and a bit of herbal hops. Some light citrus in the finish and linger.

EithCubes (5086) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Bottled as Crystal Wheat Ale. Slightly grainy, slightly wheaty aroma, dry. Golden pour with a white, lacing head and plenty of carbonation. Very crisp taste has faint wheat and phenol-tinged bread toward the back end, a slight rubber glove astringency with a poor malt base and peripheral lemon citrus. Light body but not watery. Boring and bland.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 25, 2008
2008 Bottle - Pours yellow with a small white head, malty aroma, yeasty, citrusy - flavour is almost a cross between a sour and a hef, biscuity citrus, finishes clean and lemony, good summer brew....

TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2008

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Semi murky pale yellow with thin white head. Aroma of perfume-like sweet malt and a touch of yeast. Taste of sweet malts a little thin with a semi-dry finish. Pretty much a middle of the road beer.

improvjock (325) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Bottle. Poured a honey yellow with small white head. Nothing really stands out to me, but I enjoyed it. Light and refreshing, a good session beer.
