Not so good looking as the normal unfiltered weizen, this Kristall sister is more vivid and almost as good. Has less notes in the flavour but still a good clear beer.

Sigmund (5695) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2015
500 ml bottle, from CITTI-Markt Flensburg. ABV is 5.0%. BB date 03.14. Golden colour, moderate white head. Fairly fresh aroma, moderate notes of banana and cloves. The flavour is quite dry and refreshing, only very moderate notes of banana and cloves, the hops are more distinct than in most weissbiers.

Had two 500mls, cold from fridge 4 degrees C. Aroma is pleasant but not overly strong - particularly when sitting under a 3 to 4 finger head. Pours beautifully lightly golden / straw coloured in a Weizen glass (630ml glass for a 500ml bottle) with the head coming just over the top of the glass without spilling. If using another type of glass beware it is highly carbonated. Head does hang around like a wiezen should, but dissipates more quickly than some of the competing brands. Limited lacing which is why the appearance is a 4. Taste is spot on for a Kristall Weizen - Refreshing with only a hint of bitterness, slightly less flavour than a hefe. I struggle to separate the different flavours - but that is a reflection on me rather than the beer. Plate is medium short - but again typical of the style. This was a gift of a six pack from a friend. Would certainly purchase myself, although Weihenstephaner is still my favourite in this style so far, this is a very nice beer.

Pours a sparkling clear pale amber with a foamy white head. Sweet yeasty aroma. Flavours are caramel, banana and spice. Bitterness is just noticeable. Has a medium mouthfeel.

TedE (447) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2015
500ml bottle shared with my wife. Aromas of banana and caramel. Clear pale amber with tall white head. A few bubbles streaming up the glass. Medium body but very flat on the tongue. Aftertaste is long with hints of hop bitterness, cloves and a touch of banana sweetness. Not the best I’ve ever had but OK for the style.

Jow (2656) - New York, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Did I just trade for 7 kristalweizens you bet I did. Pours bright yellow with big sudsy white head. Nose is sour wheat and banana. Tastes very wheaty, of banana, bubblegum, grains, and touch metallic. Crisp palate light off flavors on finish.

A la pression dans un restaurant Viet-Namien à Berlin. Malheureusement servie avec un citron vert, tout étant faussé...:( Limpide, smoothy... voilà tout ce que je peux juger...
