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.

Krasulak (88) - Wapadrand, Pretoria, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 27, 2005
0,5 l bottle. Clear golden with a quite substantial white lasting head. Aroma of dough and banana. Malty flavour with distinct banana citrus note and clove. Lively, but not biting carbonation. Pleasant wet, very coating mouthfeel. Slightly bitter smooth finish. Refreshing. A very good beer.

Clear golden colour with a white head. Wheaty, yeasty aroma with some banana sweetness. Banana sweet flavor with perfume hints and a dry finish.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Pour is mostly a clear lemon, almost artifical yellow, topped with two fingers of clean neat white head. Aroma is a rich with reserved wheat and light pine orange. Flavors are composed of wheat, a load of banana ice cream, and supple yeast. Sweetish and a little watery. Residue of sweet clean cane sugar and wheat. Very bready. Carbonation is average and lacing is decent. Nice qualities and well balanced, seems a little one dimenionsal. Decent summer beer. Thrist quenching for sure.

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Bottle, Weihenstephaner Glass: Pours a clean golden hue with a large fuffy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of clove, lemongrass, banana, floral and aromatic esters. The yeast character is here just not as strong as the hefe, a rarity among Kristals. The taste starts with fruity and lightly acidic nature with the yeast dominate. Sublime spice oin the short finish. Not as lively nor has the depth of the hefe but still quite refreshing. Overall a solid bier and if I was to drink a filtered weizen, this most likely would be the one.

Bottle from Asda. Clove, lemon, banana aroma. Perhaps slightly tart and acidic. But I prefer the Hefe.

highlandlad (1416) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2005 Anyone for fruit salad? Apparently itís all down to the house yeast but this is probably the fruitiest beer-without-fruit that Iíve come across. Poured a clear lemon colour with a towering and enduring head, and big champagne bubbles. The aroma screams bananas, wheat and cloves. The flavour profile is fruit salad: bananas especially, with a hint of blackcurrant and some Granny Smith acidity. Appetisingly bitter. Very spritzy in the mouth. Ultimately it feels a little insubstantial compared to the hefe but thatís probably a matter of personal preference.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Pours a clear pale golden with a thick, frothy, long-lasting white head. Aroma has a nice wheaty sweetness and a touch of clove and peppery yeast. Starts with a light caramely sweetness and a well balanced peppery, yeasty spice. A really fresh, enjoyable, flavorful beer that doesnít really seem to have suffered by being filtered.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Looks like a pilsner though without much head. Lighty sweet aroma of banana, yeast, some spiciness, maybe a little pineapple. Very crisp and spritzy on the palate with a fast finish. Flavors of the aromas with some maltiness and a hint of caramel. A bit on the watery side. A few solvent like notes. Over all quite refreshing.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2005
Detected spicey and sweet aromas. Gold clear body with big head that soon became no head. Sweet flavor with a little spice to make the beer heavy on the palate, which was good. Good beer with out the spice flavor this may of been just another swill beer.
