UPDATED: JUN 2, 2010 Tap. Pours a nice gold with crystal highlights. Lively body. Hints of wheat, lemon, and a touch of grass greet the nose. Earthy banana and clove on the tongue. Nice mouthfeel; very slippery. Worth repeating.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle from Stuttgart Germany at home. Pours a clear, pale gold color with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is sharp yeasty banana and malt smell. Taste is pleasant and smooth for Kristall. Somewhat sweet but still staying true to the Kristall taste. Palate is short and direct but mellow. Nice Kristall but nothing to write home about.

The bottle looks simple but good, the beer in the glass is very zippy, nice head. Starts mild, fruity like peaches, modest sweet. Finish well balanced, a bit less fruity. Quite drinkable, not bad!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, dense, white head. The aroma has a nice banana and bubble gum smell, compared to most kristallweizen it’s very tasteful and aromatic. The flavor has some cloves and grass, wheat, and pleasant banana and bubblegum. Medium body, quite effervescent and dry. Banana, bubblegum and a touch of cloves in the end. Certainly one of the best kristallweizens so far. 121111
