4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a weizen glass.
The appearance had the normal cloudy orange to slight brown color. There’s a slight transparency trying to come in as I do see some light bubbles around the edges rising at a good pace. The head was thick and soft full of at least a good three finger white foaminess that gently died at a nice pace.
The smell was slightly bready/yeasty. Slight clove to coriander spice that entered in with the normal "banana" light esters to enter and fulfill it’s commission of the kristallweizens of kristallweizens.
The taste was mainly sweet and carried a fairly nice spice to conjure up a fulfilling Summer’s night.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a great sessionability about it. Hot damn, this was really good. The carbonation was there but nowhere to be seen to be overbearing. Oh, how smooth she runs over my mouth.
Overall, where in the heck, did this come from? Holy moses, I’d have this again in a heartbeat.

Bottle 0.5l from local Alko, Helsinki. BBE 2015.03.01. Colour is clear light orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Wheat, some fruits, banana, grain and malts. Very light naturally. I just don’t understand kristallweizens.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Schneider downtown Munich. Clear gold pour with rich white head. Lemony, grainy aroma, not too wheaty, some light spicy clove notes persist however, nice fruitiness as well. Taste is light, lemony wheat, really easy drinking, a true thirst quencher. Palate is light bodied and rather aggressively carbed.

0.5 bottle from Alko. I thought this is the typical Kristallweizen with no taste of hefeweizen left. Well, I was wrong, there is even the taste of banana and everything. It is not cloudy but the taste is still there. Some of the Hefeweizens are more watery than this. I am impressed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Yellow clear. Good weiss esters, banana, some clove. And lots of malted wheat yestyness. Light bodied, bit oily slick. Estery, well carbonated. Ok flavours, bit sterile though.

Clear, orange beer with a foamy white head. Wheat, yeast and citrus on the nose. Not much carbonation. Light body. Strong banana flavor with yeast, wheat and a hint of lemon. Quite nice but not exceptionally good.

Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø Langnes. Lys gylden. Helt klar. Veldig høyt skinnende hvitt skum som holder seg høyt. Litt lacing. Aroma av gjær & syrlig frukt. Smaken er banan sammen med litt sitrus. Gjærpreget holder seg. Blir litt søt etter hvert.
