In our golden-yellow crystal-clear wheat beer the fresh citrus flavour harmonises very well with spicy banana notes. The fine sparkling gives it a tangy and animated appearance. Throughout summer and winter, it’s a prickling experience. It goes well with fish, seafood, white meat or it can be enjoyed as an aperitif. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

I guess I’m just not that into Kristalls. What’s the point of brewing a wheat beer if you’re going to filter out all the good yeasty, banana and coriander flavors. I have no idea why these beers are brewed as they’re like Kolsch’s with a twist of metallic flavor.

Pours very light clear bright yellow with a white head that doesn’t stay around very long. Clean crisp wheat aroma with some spice and acidity - the elements of citrus, but somehow it seems to break the two elements up. From the looks of it I would have guess light bodied, but it is more medium. Carbonation is just right. Light syrup feel as well, but not cloying. Taste is crisp with smooth malt with a light amount of spice and possibly banana, then a bit of yeast with a hint of dough and finishes with a spritzy hoppy taste. One of the most refreshing beers I’ve had. Full of flavor, but very unobtrusive to the palate. This would be a great beer to have with food, especially lighter fare. Recommended beer.

The color was yellow and was real bubbly like most wheat beers. the aroma wasnt worth talking about. It seemed to have a slightly more bitter taste( not much ) and slightly more smooth. I think this is comparable to a paulaner hefe. I will buy this again.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 17, 2006
Tasted 17/04/2006. 500ml bottle from Rumble’s, Wellington. Pours a pale-yellow gold with a solid pure-white head atop. Carbonation not as visible as I expected, loads of tiny bubbles but certainly not volcanic. Classic German weizen aroma of sweet bananas and wheat (expected spice didn’t eventuate). Tart wheat with some background lolly-like malt in the mouth, up front. Fierce carbonation comes to the fore now, making the beer’s aromatics and flavour explode in the mouth - much like creaming soda. More tartness and some clove in the dry finish. Lightweight without being watery thin. Powdery residue remains on the palate, yeast attributes lingering. Not one I’d drink everyday but this is a good refreshing ale that is very well made.

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - APR 12, 2006
Really cool, I loved it. Pours macro clear yellow, with a great head and the most amazing bubble trails rushing up and crashing into the bottom of the head. Aroma is hefe all the way, banan clove. Flavor is a bit weak, but still good. Banana, clove, bready and sweet.

Clear watery yellow with a white head, lager like. Aroma had some whaet and a hint of banana. Taste was wheaty with a little banana again and some pepper with a thin finish.

16.9 oz bottle - Pours crystal clear and golden with a moderate to large head that fades away after a few minutes. Very noticeable yeast and citrus aroma, flavor is lightly sweet with considerable citrus flavors. The palate is lively and a bit thin, but not terribly so for the style. The finish is light and refreshing. It’s really quite tastey.

The usual wheaty aromas and look. A good beer but nor the best weissbier I’ve had. Citrus with a clenan finish.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAR 23, 2006
500ml bottle: poured clear golden yellow with a big fluffy white head. Strong yeast aroma and the esters are quite big. The usual: banana, clove. Seemed to have a light chlorine taste midway into the taste followed by a sweet banana finish. Definitely a good beer.

Poured World’s oldest beer into 0,5l weiss glass. Crystal clear yellow beer with fluffy head. Strong wheaty aroma. Exploding fruity esters followed by a strong hoppy bite. Refreshing and outstanding.
