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.

poured a clear golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is fruity with a yeast and wheat dominance. Flavor is very heavy on the wheat flavor with a yeast addition. Medium to light mouthfeel with good carbonation.

Thanks to Yogi_beera. I have now tried a kristalweizen. Mommy....why did they take the yeast out? This is just really not the same and nowhere near the level of their regular hefe. The same banana/fruit/wheat flavors, but much of the body and all of the doughiness and chewiness is gone. Alas. =(

I sampled the 500 ml bottled variety. This beer pours pale yellow and—as the name suggests—crystal clear, with a huge white head. Lacing was average. In my opinion, this lighter style misses the mark as compared with other weissbeirs with bottle yeast—especially the hefeweissen offerings from Weihenstephan. Body and mouthfeel are markedly different. The aroma is also quite muted. There is a bit of malt and bread in the nose, but just a whiff of the expected citrus aroma. Palate entry is dry and the flavor spectrum reveals a hint of the citrus and spice typical of hefeweissen styles. The brief dry finish reveals traces of alcohol. This beer would be quite thirst quenching in the right setting, but I rate it average overall.

16.9 oz bottle. Pours a light gold with a nice sized head. Aroma is very light. The taste is a little bitter, hoping this wasn’t an older bottle that was not preserved correctly. Clinged to the palate. Overall, I can’t say I enjoy this style.

Clear gold with the expected large white head. Pleasant flavor but lacks some of the acidity and mouthfeel that its counterparts "mit Hefe" have. Drinkable enough, and refreshing, I’m just not a big fan of Kristall.

shoestring (322) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2005
Typical wheat beer aroma. however looked clear and lightweight compared to ints counterparts, this put me off from the start as it looked weak. Gave it a go though. Fizzy palate. Prefer more typica weizens.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Pilsener golden and clear with a very, very white head. Classical dry, lightly sulphurous without much character really. 050501

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2005
50cl bottle from Asda. I may have had a bad bottle given the other ratings, but I found this disappointing. Clear pale gold with thick tight white head. Aroma is of a corny undertated wheat beer with bugglegum/banana faint hints with also with a lot of corn. Some unpleasant burnt rubber too. Then it disappears quickly in mouth leaving corn and banana. Nowhere near as good as their hefe weiss.

Bottle. Lemony, sweet, banana-clovey grassy aroma. Some sweet candied bubble gum notes are also in the aroma. Transparent golden color with a frothy white head. Slightly citric start, but more overpowered in the middle by a slight metallic flavor turning a creamy and slightly roasted malty in the middle. Finishes a touch astringent with some of the more classic banana and clove notes. Somewhat dry to finish.
