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.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2004
Spicy colves and banana, estery and phenolic, bread-like yeast aroma. Crystal clear with good carbonation and large white head that reduces to cover fairly rapidly. Grainy flavour followed by cloves and banana. Cereal malt dominates. Very highly carbonated. Light body. Bottle (sampled with CapFlu and MartinT).

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2004
0.5 l bottle. Clear golden with a white lasting head. Aroma is of banana and malt. Malty flavor with hints of banana and clove. This is a good hot day brew, but not as satisfying as hefes.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2004
500ml bottle 06.09.04 Yet another pretty, clear, golden brew from Germany...if nothing else, their beers are spectacular to behold. Big, brainy head. Nice bready aroma. Hints at dough, clove, honey, and light citrus, as well as banana. Flavors are savory with a bit of lemon. Touched of coriander, cane sugar. Very coating mouthfeel, wet, tart. Reminds of a hybrid hefe/pilsnener. Would like it drier on finish, but it’s an interesting style. I can imagine it would be smashing with spicey foods.

CapFlu (4615) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2004
(500ml Bottle) Pours a large, white head with a clear gold body. Nose of yeast, bananas and cloves. Clean banana and bubblegum flow across the palate. Sharp and dry. Good. Thanks to Rudge75 for this offering.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2012 Banana and clove perfume atop a transparent, bubbly body...Cereal and candy bubblegum smothered by muscular cloves...Wheat emerges in the end in this light, but very tasty kristalweizen...

freekyp (1537) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Pale golden crytal clear with pure white head. Tart and lemony aroma. Very clean. Extremely refreshing. Pure and quenching with lasting tart, but smooth finish.

Pailhead (5066) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is citrus and cloves. Pours a transparent pale gold with a nice white head that lasts a minute or so. Not much lacing. Banana is the stronger of the tastes with citrus and cloves in the background. Slight bitter finish without much aftertaste. A very good beer. I’ve been impressed by this brewery so far.

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 11, 2004
Very light overall. I have had better Kristalweizens. A very light gold color with a creamy, white head. Aroma of grass and slight banana. Taste is light and refreshing with slight orange and vanilla. A little clove spice. Too light.

Every time I try a beer from this brewery I am happy, and this one is no exception. Not quite the outstanding product that the Hefe Weiss is, but a close second. Good balance between yeast and wheat flavors.

UNCCTF (495) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2004
Bottled, and my first kristalweizen. Poured a clear golden color with lots of carbonation and a large fluffy white head. The aroma is dominated by cloves, and the flavor was very yeasty with some hints of fruits - bananas, mainly. I liked the hefeweizen way better, but this is interesting.
