Typical wheat beer aroma. however looked clear and lightweight compared to ints counterparts, this put me off from the start as it looked weak. Gave it a go though. Fizzy palate. Prefer more typica weizens.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
50cl bottle from Asda. I may have had a bad bottle given the other ratings, but I found this disappointing. Clear pale gold with thick tight white head. Aroma is of a corny undertated wheat beer with bugglegum/banana faint hints with also with a lot of corn. Some unpleasant burnt rubber too. Then it disappears quickly in mouth leaving corn and banana. Nowhere near as good as their hefe weiss.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Lemony, sweet, banana-clovey grassy aroma. Some sweet candied bubble gum notes are also in the aroma. Transparent golden color with a frothy white head. Slightly citric start, but more overpowered in the middle by a slight metallic flavor turning a creamy and slightly roasted malty in the middle. Finishes a touch astringent with some of the more classic banana and clove notes. Somewhat dry to finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 Pours clear yellow with a foamy white mostly receding head. Aroma is estery with notes of banana, clove, lemon, and honey malt. Taste is bready, lightly sweet, with mild yeastiness. Mouthfeel is light bodied and fizzy. Finishes tart and lightly acidic. Not too much of a downgrade from the original version. I still don’t like this style, but this might be the best.

I’m not really a huge fan of this style, but this one was pretty good... more wheat came through in the flavor than in most of this style. Good with food and also something good to drink if you don’t want to get filled up too quickly.

Pour is a clear yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is wheat and some vanilla. Flavor is yeasty and clove but not that outstanding as a regular hefe. I don’t get this style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a 16.9 oz bottle, this beer pours to a huge whipped egg whites head atop a fizzy light yellow gold body. The aroma is almost lightly sour bananas and a light banana nut bread. Smells sorta fake but still good. The flavor is wheat, lemons (no I didn’t add it), banana. The finish is strange. Tart. Decent palate. I understand it’s supposed to be filtered, but I wish they wouldn’t.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. I’m not usually a fan of kristalweizens (hence I haven’t rated many) but this one is pretty reasonable - not too emasculated by the filtration. Mid gold colour with a big fluffy head. Plenty of estery banana in the aroma. Soft, vanilla flavour. Starts sweet, but a touch of citric bite develops in the aftertaste. Creamy mouthfeel. It may be a touch on the flabby side, but, overall, pretty good.
