UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 At Weisses brauhaus Munich. Decent stuff. Style maintains some of the Hefeweizen qualities despite being a Kristallweizen. Serving: Bottle

maekchu (2667) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake Taniguchi). Delicate wheaty banana nose, light yeastiness. Medium golden straw color, slightly hazy, with a huge fine-grained long-lasting white head, good lace. Light sourish mash-like wheat initial, mild spice, citrus. Thin-medium body. Like a very light hefeweizen, smooth and very drinkable. I know what it is, but I kept wishing for just a little more body.

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Otra gran cerveza de trigo de la casa. Muy limpia y clara (el estilo). Dorada muy bonita. Aroma ligero a plŠtano y clavo. El clavo destaca tambiťn en el sabor. Muy especiada, menos plŠtano en el sabor. Buen cuerpo, muy bebible. Muy agradable.

Lys brun klar med hÝyt hvitt skum. Lukter hvete, banan og krydder. SÝtlig smak, noe banan, hvete og fudgekarameller. Lett. Kort. Mye kullsyre

thought I hate rated this, but I no longer see it... One of the better KW for sure, though not up to par with Weihenstephaner, my runaway best in style. Very much like their hefe, which is fantastic, but a bit too lite. good summertime brew, though.

alteregoo (283) - POLAND - JUN 11, 2015
Piana obfita, biała, średnio pęcherzykowa, barwa jasno złota, słomkowa, klarowna. Zapach lekko cytrusowy z wyraźną cytrynową nutą, jest też trawa cytrynowa, zioła i kwiaty, w tle troszkę skůrki od chleba, przyjemnie i delikatnie. W smaku zadziwiająco podobnie - trawa cytrynowa i orzeźwiająca limonka w towarzystwie melanoidynowo-ziołowych akcentůw, jest troszkę winogronowej słodyczy, winnej kwaskowatości (białe půłwytrawne wino). Goryczka niemalże nie odgrywa tu żadnej roli. Nagazowanie średnie, szampańskie, fajnie musujące na języku. Super to wyszło, obawiałem się, że filtracja zabierze całą pszeniczną moc temu piwu, ale wcale to nie jest minusem, doszły bowiem fajne elementy białego wina, cytrusowości od amerykańskiego chmielu i takiej ziołowości belgijskich Ale. Lekko, sesyjnie i odświeżająco - w sam raz na lato!

5.3% ABV Nice fresh wheaty nose. Medium head. Light golden color. Nice carbonated nose, almost like putting your nose in a glass of Sprite. First mouthful is light and almost like taking a swig of sparkling mineral water. This is possibly the lightest continental beer that Iíve ever had. So refreshing on the palate with a feather-light herbaceous hoppy finish. Not sticky so likely light on malted grains as well. Light all the way through and so very drinkable. Would be good beer for light drinkers or a very hot day.

SinH4 (932) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Clear golden color with big head. Aroma is banana, not as spicy as a usual Hefeweizen. Taste is sweet banana, no spicy yeasts anymore, crisp. A good tartness. Lost a lot of its original smoothness. Still a good Kristall.

Filtered version of Tap 1, looks "prettier" than that but also loses some of the aromas and persistence. Not bad, anyway.

Benzai (9915) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle @ home. Clear golden color, medium sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Smell and taste wheat, lightly sweet and also a light bitter touch, only a slight sweetish banana hint. Decent body and suitable soft carbonation. Quite nice.
