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.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle, very pale clear yellow pour. Very large aroma of bananas and cloves. Flavor was the same, but a little thin compared to the aroma, and came across as a bit bland.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Pours a golden color. Aromatic notes of spiciness and banana. Tastes of banana, clove, yeast. Nicely carbonated it’s a decent brew but has a bit of a metallic aftertaste in it. I prefer Weihenstephaner’s hefeweiss over the kristal.

bb (7133) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Bottle. Clear straw colored beer with a touch of gold. Big shite head. Some clove and spice aroma. Sweet flavor with spice and some fruitiness. Easy to drink. Light wheat bite. Crisp.

aracauna (3179) - Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Clear pale gold. Good head. Reduced clove and esters than the regular. The body is very light and so is the flavor. Keep your filters away from my wheat beer dammit.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2005
a sim rate: The aroma is very sweet. Banana-ey. It’s very smooth and there’s not much to the palate. The taste is banana as well, with almost bubble-gum undertones. Nice, smooth beer. Not just an ordinary lager.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2006 Bright golden yellow, transparent, great white head, highly carbonated. Laces glass surprisingly well. Aroma has a nice combo of banana, spice and candi sugar. Flavor starts with all fruity esters, fades into a semi sweet wheatiness with a finish of mostly banana and clove. Very clean/semi-dry finish. Very easy drink well done IMO.

IMtheOptimator (1162) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Poured an effervescent clear gold with a fizzy off-white head. Hefe aroma of bananas, cloves, spice. Clean hefe taste with a touch of hop bitterness and a dry finish. Crisp.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Bottle: Clear pale golden yellow with a small quickly diminishing white head and plenty of visable tiny bubbles rising to the surface. Aroma has plenty of yeast, wheat, and a hint of almost tart spicy banana. In fact, the aroma smells exactly like something I’ve smelled before...and then I remember that I’ve brewed with their yeast. Taste is light yeast, banana, subtle clove, sweet wheat, straw, effervescent mild lemon, pear, and a hint of honey. Finishes dry with light banana/pear/apple and that signature yeast flavor. Light bodied, very lively carbonation on the palate, which almost stings the palate when held in the mouth, however it’s not a bad thing in this beer. Very refreshing.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - JUL 1, 2005
color is yellow gold and clear, with a tall creamy/pillowy white head that lasts. aroma is yeasty wheat malt, light banana, faint clove, and light lemon spritz. high carbonation and snappy mouthfeel. flavor is tangy wheat-malt, a little yeasty, a bit if lemony finish. still haven’t figured out how this calls for a separate style of it’s own.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2005
16.9 oz bottle - Pours beautiful crystal clear golden with a fantastic fluffy white head of about an inch and a half that lingers and laces well in a weizen glass. Carbonation rises from the bottom like a filter in a fish tank. Aroma is yeast, malts and cloves. Flavor contains notes of clove, bananas, yeast and a touch of lemon. This is quite light and crisp on the palate. Feels almost like champagne in the mouth. Quite bubbly. Looks a lot like a pilsner but tastes much more like a hefe. A little more crisp though. Pretty good stuff.
