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.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2006
16.9 oz bottle. Clear pale yellow with a big, white foamy head. Green tints. Sweet wheat, lemon pepper and pumpkin pie. Classic. Predominantly banana with sourdough bread. Tight, tangy carb provides a nice zip and lightens the medium body. Good, but I prefer the regular.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - AUG 30, 2006
Big pillowy head. Clear golden color. Light wheat flavor with slight hints of banana with wheat/straw like aroma. Slighty sweet with a slight sharpness. Smooth finish and mouthfeel. Fizzy on the carbonation. Overall very good. Light and refreshing.

Sparkling clear body w. loads of visibible carbonation. Big fluffy white head. Nose is wheaty & yeasty, some noticable sweet malt, oranges & clove. Flavor is light clove, yeast, lemon, orange, wheat, light toasted malt. A bit sweeter than I expected.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2009 Bottle. This pours very light and clear yellow. The only thing that is visually appealing is the large, aggressive white head. The aroma is very, very bready. It smells like dinner rolls with a hint of banana. There is thin banana in the body with a taste of crackers. The finish lingers on the sweet, yeasty notes and is quite crisp and clean. The body is very active in the mouth, sparkling quite intensely. Thereís a dry mineral water feel about this. This is not bad, but man, itís so thin. I would probably only want to drink this with a meal or something else to entertain my palate.

Bottle. I felt like I should revisit this one as itís been so long since Iíve had a kristall weizen at all. Well, this is pretty much exactly how I remember. It is light gold with lots of carbonation and a flavor that is remarkably similar to their hefeweizen, just watered down. Imagine taking their hefe and cutting it with seltzer water. This is pretty much that.

davegore (222) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2006
bottle from asda, poured a very light yellow with a fluffy white head but no lacing down the glass, strong banana aroma, quite refreshing even to get a whiff of. straight away very dry in the mouth, not bitter dry but a zing kind of dry, you can almost chew on the yeast in this beer, it works as an excellent thirst quencher, itís been a warm day here and maybe it would have tasted even better in the garden earlier but still a very nice drink all the same

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2006
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Outrageous banana perfume and tingling effervescence. Pronounced flavours of apple and banana. Maybe a few vinous notes as you drain the vase. Snow-white head, with some circles of froth. Sparkling, fragrant and assertively fruity. Theyíve been brewing beers like this for 966 years, and it shows. If thereís a better Weissbier, Iím still looking for it. (948417/4.2) UPDATE: Bottle with Octo at The Penguin. Pleasant peppery banana aroma with a pilsy mineral softness and sweetcorn. The usual banana and clove effervescence, but less so. Quite a shock of hops in a dry finish for the style. Nice beer, but punching way above its weight in my top 10 Iím afraid.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2007 I decided to give this beer another go, considering the last time I had it, it was the first beer after one of the worst bouts of sickness Iíve ever had. Anyway pours more gold than yellow, with a tall foamy white head. Aroma is spicy yeast, banana, clove, hay, and dough. Flvaor has all the elements of a very nice hefeweizen, just toned down a notch. After a day spent clearing out my apartment, this beer goes down very nice.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2006
50 cl bottle, from BevMo LaJolla. Pours clear light yellow with a large, fjluffy white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma, ripe summer fruits with hints of banana and floral hops noticible as well. Flavor is pretty good, but a little unbalanced to the floral hops for my taste, again fruity, a bit of spice from the yeast and a tart, slightly metallic hop finish. Light body and crisp carbonation. I have to say I prefer my weissbier unfiltered. Not bad, but lacking in the full character of a non-filtered weiss.

bitbucket (2164) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Bottled. Pours a clear pale amber with a large, fluffy, but diminishing white head. The aroma is a bit indistinct, but some cloves and banana are present. The body is light with fairly powerful carbonation. The taste is hugely dominated by cloves, but has some a bit of fruit and bread. Crisp spiced banana finish.
