3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ah. Delicious. Upon pouring this brew, I noticed that something was missing... The cloudy color! Where's the yeast? Ah. I see. I'm a "Kristall", the bottle reads. I was afraid... Very afread. How can we have a German Wheat without the typical cloudiness? But the brew smelled good, like a spicy fruit. That seems correct. And the taste? It's very much like a "Paulaner Light". The Alcohol is still there, but theres something missing in the flavor compared to other German Wheat biers. Nevertheless, it's still tasty. Even though it's not my favorite wheat, it's quite enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer pours a very bright yellow color with a large, but quickly dissipating, head. The aroma is the same as a weiss/wheat beer. Very grainy nose. The flavor is that of a wheat beer with some added spices for a little extra flavor. If you're a fan of weiss beers, you should try this one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice sweet almost rosy aroma. Brew pours pale gold with a huge head that is retained. There is quite a bit of carbonation here. Flavor is sweet and light. Fairly nice beer, especially for summer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden - ugh. Banana, hint of spice on the nose. Light, slightly watery body. Background phenols, but this is a typically bland kristalweizen. No yeast - why bother?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light banana aroma emanates from a beer the color of Budweiser (though, I admit, the creamy white head is nicer). Flavor is banana-like, with slight tang, and overall lighter than that of a hefeweizen. Refreshing as a session beer, but doesn't stand out in any way.
