COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Malty wheat bouquet with aromatic noble hops. Creamy head, brilliant golden clarity, balanced and with a malty and refreshingly crisp finish…a perfect thirst quencher.

I have two hands and two glasses; the glass in my left hand is direct from the tap at the brewery, my right hand holding a glass from a bottle opened by the brewer himself. Bright and clear. Straw yellow. Nice white head. The bottle sample was served a bit warmer than the keg, making for some difference. The warmer sampleís hop aroma was a little more pronounced. Both had noticeable sulfur aroma, a byproduct of fermentation and the sign of a very fresh lager. It is not for some people, but at the right level Iíve learned to appreciate it. (And since it exceptionally easy to scrub the so2 smell out of the beer by venting a little co2 through it, I consider it an attribute, as opposed to a flaw.) Overall this beer has a very light body, with some sweetness to it. There is wheat graininess along with a little hop bitterness. The sulfur might get in the way of some, but I think this is really refreshing,. Itíll make for a good session beer.

This beer did not go over well. Somewhat bitter and a horrible smell meets the nose. Thoroughly nasty.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 5, 2002
Slightly hazy gold with a thinnish white head. Leaves a solid pattern of lace. Moderate carbonation. 100% German aroma of Hallertau/Tettnang hops and lightly toasty malts. Crisp and refreshing and spicy with hops, but lacking any Weizen flavors. Easy drinking. Malt flavor shines as this sits and warms from fridge temp. Toasty and grainy. Drys out and bitters in the finish. Taste is clearly German Pils and nothing like a true Kristall Weizen. Canít anyone in the US replicate this style?

HighlanderOne (1002) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2001
A wheat beer with some attitude. Itís head lingered longer than I expected. Itís got a unique, kinda citrusy aroma to it. The flavor is stronger than most wheats, and itís got a pilsener - like aftertaste.

One of the best American made lighter beers Iíve had.
