COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The source of its pearling, effervescent taste is the secret fermentation process which we have developed especially for our crystal wheat beer. It quenches your thirst like no other beer. With its elegant appearance, it is the speciality of our brewery. Goes well with fish, seafood and light dishes.

Bottle. Pours golden clear with a big foamy white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is of wheat, malt, spice, and banana. Taste is of wheat, banana, and bready malt. Has a fair amount of spiciness as well. Lingering spicy taste with lots of banana. Mouthfeel is light and very carbonated. Easy to drink, it tastes good, and I liked it.

500ml bottle, pours clear gold, small bubbly white head. Aroma is big on banana and bubblegum, light wheatiness and caramel. Very clean and crisp with a dry light bitter finish. Light bodied, slightly oily texture, carbonation soft to average.

mariuszek (323) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 7, 2015
Very good brew. All is here like perfect weizen. You don’ even notice absence of yeast, and you don’t believe you actually drink this crystal clear golden liquid from your glass. Maybe a bit thin body, still drinkable and refreshing.

DutchMark (229) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2015
Very well brewed but not for me. Clear yellow with a persistent creamy head and perfect carbonation. In flavor it is almost like a hefe weisse but not as nice. Probably a great accomplishment to brew a clear weisse but what’s the point if the result is not as good. The opaqueness from yeast in the bottle has never been a disadvantage of the style to me. Enjoyed drinking this but next time I will have a hefe again.

Like a Belgiany bud. Filtered clear yellow pour with high white head. Nose is Belgian yeast, esters, and simple malts. Light almost medium body with a little heft. Belgian yeast, bubble gum, lagery malts. Simple clean and nice for like $3 a bottle

Bottle poured. From notes. Pours a crystal clear (just as advertised) gold color with a lasting white head. Banana and some belgian yeast flavor and aroma. High carb. Another nice beer in an impressive lineup from these guys. Enjoyed this.
