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.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2003 Quite good as most German wheats are. I like the Kyrstal style Weiss as it is very refreshing and not heavy. This is certainly not the best weiss beer I have had but it is high in quality. If it was not so clear I would have given its appearance higher.Do I taste honey? Anyway the best kyrstals may be light but have a full body. This is a little thin.

This weizen pours a nice, honey colored gold with a big, rocky white head that is mostly lasting. The aroma is yeasty and spicy with some decent clove and banana notes. It is very crisp with full carbonation. It has a medium body with some good wheat and banana flavors. A decent German wheat, smooth and very refreshing.

Nice colour and head, the nose is not very present. It is a bit wheaty for my taste but it has a slight hint of lemon. Good to drink, but not too many of them in a row.

Very pleasant hops aroma; mild taste with a hint of citrus - a bit light for my taste.

Light nose - almost nothing, deep gold color, big foamy head. Clear and fizzy. Pretty substantial wheat flavors for a crystal. Citrusy tones in the middle and end. Creamy mouth feel, medium body, and a pretty good balance.

Clear straw color with a tall fluffy white head. Mild malt and wheat nose. Flavors to match aroma. Well made, but boring.

Another boring wheat. The presence of spearmint jumped out of me as this dry beer went down the pipe. Soured slightly as it warmed.
