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.

Poured a clear yellow with some lacing. Some spices are there with a tart hop finish. Good for a wheat beer, but no Hoegaarden.

Pours a nice golden yellow. Aromas of of citrus, fruit, and a little yeasty. Flavor is crips, almost pilsner like. A little hops at the end.

Bottle. Poured a gorgeous golden with a nice fizzy white head that mostly dissipated. Lemons, banana, and fruit at the nose. The flavor showed banana, earthy, and clove. Light body and dry texture. The more I had, the more that burning rubber got into my head for both the aroma and flavor. This kind of wrecked the drink for me because with every sip all I could think of is the smell of burning rubber.

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.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2005
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.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 13, 2005
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 (347) - 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.
