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.

Very beautiful pour with a weizen glass. Looks like champaigne, only with a thick layer of pillowy white head and with great retention. Lots of bubbles from the beer. Smells of dough and sweet malts, maybe some clove. Thin bodied with flavors of wheat, pear, banana, and clove. Thinner bodied compred to a hefeweizen but has some great tickling mouthfeel with all of the bubbles. Finishes with some bitterness and lemon spice. Very refreshing and very good. My first Kristalweizen but I’ll be sure to try some more.

Beautifully appealing beer in my tall weizen glass ... bright golden and active with a big cushy pillow of a head. It has a crisp malty aroma. The flavor is a nice cross-breeding ... crisp malt of a pilsner with the mellow yeast and doughiness of a weizen. Exceptional.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Crystal clear body as the name implys. Big whiote head. Smells of bread dough, and banana. Nice flavor with a blast of fruitiness at the end. Feels very lively in your mouth. Good stuff.

500 ml bottle. Very pale golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma is very good, clove, apple, lemon, banana appear along with some wheaty spice. Flavour is also very good, apple, pear, spice and a touch of sweatiness. Body is quite thin, but this is a very refreshing brew. Spicy finish.

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Very lively pour! Pale almost clear golden hue with about a 4 inch white head (this was not aggressively poured). Long head retention. Vinous aroma, not unlike champagne. Wheaty notes were also strong. Light and bubbly mouthfeel (well-carbonated, but ideal for the style). Flavors of wheat, some spices, and a malty sweetness were present. Some banana and a subtle bitterness were also present. Finish was quite refreshing, and carried through the banana and some spices. Very solid brew, especially for this time of year.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2005
Excellent head that lasted quite well. Personally wasn’t particularly keen on the aroma. Appearance absolutely gorgeous though. Taste was spices and citrus with a hint of bitterness, but the finish was disappointingly insipid.

ashbeero (51) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2005
Light yellow golden cloudy beer with a great white head as a result of the wheat malts used in brewing. Strong aroma of banana and cloves. Some slight citrus notes in both the flavour and aroma. Flavour is also dominated by banana and some nice noble hops. Soft bitterness and yeasty flavours throughout.

Lubiere (10496) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2005
Clear gold with a thick creamy white head. Nice bananas and cloves in aroma, and nice clean wheat, fruityness and a bit of lemon in taste. Just perfect for summer. Bottle dated best before 30 Sep. 2004, but this still taste fresh. believe this is from Piscator, which I thank for all the great trades we have!

Big thanks to beerhandy who sent this beer, of a style I have yet to rate, as an extra in a trade. Poured a clear, see through gold color with a huge (5 finger) white head. Strong banana aroma with some wheat. Tastes of light spices, some lemons, wheat and bananas. The banana taste was not as strong as the smell. Medium sweet. Lively and fizzy body.

Almost over expiration date. Still okay. :) Decent aroma of wheat and banana’s. Clear, golden coloured good sparkling. Nice looks, good white head. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, fruity (bananas) and wheaty. Very pleasant and well balanced. Absolutely refreshing.
