Crystal clear gold with a big, fluffy white head. Drippy white lace. Nice floral hop nose, a touch of spice and banana. Pleasant, crisp wheat flavor, lightly grainy, clove and banana. I added a little lemon to it. Good stuff.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
light gold pour with a big off white almost beige head, great retention and lace... the nose is terrible, skunky grains, reminds me a really bad pilsner... the taste is very sweet, almost sweet to the point I think there is sugar in this, no hops at all, just sweet grains with a little alcohol on the finish... all over the place, a complete mess

UPDATED: APR 27, 2011 Bottle @ home. Pours a transparent pale yellow appearance with a big off white head. Light wheat malty nose with fruity banana esters and a hint of clove. Clean easy drinking German weizen with a fairly strong banana flavor. Very smooth and sweet Kristallweizen.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear, yellow-orange pour with a frothy white head. The aroma has banana, cloves, and some bread. The light body has a slightly thin texture with average carbonation. The taste is on the sweet side with only a hint of hop bitterness right before the finish. This is a good thirst quencher on warm days.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a clear pale golden straw color with a moderate amount of white foam.
S: Intensely sweet nose. It mostly smells like banana candy (banana flavored runts seem to be a good comparison). Minimal wheat and bread and almost no spice notes at all.
T: Surprisingly, the flavor is much, much better. Nice banana and clove esters with a moderate sweetness of wheat and bread. There is a little bit of clove in there, but still restrained compared to other beers of the style.
M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation.
O: Nice wheat beer here. The nose was a little off-putting, but a nice flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
16.9 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, pale straw with a thick frothy head. The aroma is lemon peels, hay and faint honeysuckle. The flavor is subtly sweet with a touch of bitterness in the finish. The palate is light to medium, acidic and very carbonated. Overall, a clean and crisp beer, but nothing special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy, translucent straw color with medium fizzy white head. Plenty of soft white lacing. Aroma is soft and clean. Lots of different qualities-- notes of orange peel, strawberry, yeast, wheat, caramel-- even though they are all subtle overall. Clean flavor profile with soft. balanced notes of caramel malt, banana, fruity esters, and yeast. Soft, slick mouthfeel with the right amount of carbonation. Refreshing wheat finish. I found this very clean and enjoyable. Seems like this would be awesome with brunch.

It is a light and airy, and ultimately nicely drinkable Kristall Weizen. In the flavor are hints of wheat and bananas.
