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.

first beer of the morning while having a early lunch of wurst and pretzels at the brewery refreshing and like a pils in some respects

For a kristal, this brew is quite good. Crisp and light on the tongue, bracing yet never intrusive. The fruit and cloves rescue it from being boring, while not demanding too much from the drinker. A good pub brew.

Bottle from Kris Wines. Another winner from Schneider - great full-flavoured kristall, all good weiss-y things present in aroma & flavours.

essa é uma feliz junção de maltes de cevada e trigo. O resultado é refrescante, perfeito para um domingo de 37ºC de verão. Com alta carbonatação, pode acompanhar pratos apimentados, como comida mexicana, sem ser afetada pelo sabor da comida e limpando o paladar automaticamente. Ideal para qualquer horário, desde que esteja bem gelada

PawelD (207) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. Kolor klarowny słomkowy. Bardzo obfita gęsta biała piana ale szybko opada do zera, lacingu brak. Od razu po otwarciu uderza bardzo intensywny zapach gruszek, bananów/drożdzy. W smaku bardzo łagodne, bananowe, słodkie. Bardzo słodowe z lekką ściągającą cierpkością na finiszu i minimalną goryczką. Wysycenie niskie. Bardzo dobry Kristallweizen, wręcz przepyszny.

500 ML bottle in Germany. A nice clear pour and fine lacing of the head with its golden clear color. Aroma is strong banana pudding. Taste is creamy and very smooth for a Kristall. Palate is also very pleasant for a Kristall. One of the top Kristall’s in my book.

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.

Pours gold with a generouw white head. Smells of wheat, straw, perfume. Tastes of citrus, lightly tarte, some hints of hefeweizen. Crisp dry clean finish.

Taste is very fresh. The wheat is light and has some grainy notes. The yeast is most dominant in the beer, giving banana, lemon and some pine-apple. The mouthfeel is smooth. Aftertaste is light and crisp.
