3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Metro Wines, Syston, Leicester. Beautiful, virginal white head, roughly 1 inch in depth. Lagerish blonde, with a rich wheaty aroma. Sweet yeast/wheat aroma - booming taste like a Hefe, but with a springtime crispness which makes this less full, but equally refreshing. Palate is fairly unchanging, though the flavour is bigger at the beginning. Some Lager taste but this is a vastly superior drink.

A touch of haze. Straw gold with lots of head that stays around and coats your glass; purty. The aroma has a nice spot of wheat and crisp citrus hops. Also banana and clove, trademarks from these guys (or yeasts, whatever). The flavor is very smooth with some well balanced flavors, not over the top, but just well balanced with wheat and banana/clove esters. The finish is lightly watery but refreshing at the same time. This was a tasty beer!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber body with ample white foamy head. Weak malt aroma and slight bitterness to the taste. Something to drink cold on a hot summer day or to have with food but not something to sip and savor alone.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
slightly spicy aroma; watery yellow color with a large white head; the taste is much better than the appearance - refreshing, a little too light, slightly smoky finish

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fits the description of Kristalweizen to a tee: Clear golden colour. Pleasing aroma of banana with just a hint of spice. A bit of fruitiness, but finishes short and clean with lots of carbonation. This is probably a good introduction to the world of Weizen, but I prefer a more classic style of hefeweizen.

Great to see Weihenstephaner in Australia, even though its only the Kristal. Having said this, this is a nice Kristal. Still has those fruity banana esters of the regular heffe, and still a huge cloveyness. Really smooth, soft, and manages to cover most corners of the palate quite nicely, tart flavour, with some welcomed saltyness. Nice one. Definitely one of the better kristall weissbiers i've had.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sparkling clear, light golden lager with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention. Good lacing. The aroma is soapy with notes of bubblegum, clove and orange peel. Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, spicy, dry finish.

The description sums it up pretty well. For lovers of kristall brews this certainly is a benchmark.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden colour. Big, lasting head. Extremly pearling, it lasted for minutes. Very nice to watch. Taste yeasty, slightly sweet. Hints of spiciness and breadiness. Nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
sugary yeasty caramel aroma. piss clear yellow, big head. Has a big carbonated malt taset to it. It ways it says its a malt liqour on it, thought not here apparently, and it does taste like a non skunked malt. Aint bad.
