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.

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2006
Bottled, 500ml. Yellow orange clear with white head. Strong spicy (cloves), esthery banana like flavour, a little too over the top for me. Is this added spices methinks. Challenging throughout without being refreshing enough. I enjoyed it, but not in a returnable way.

500 ml bottle. I just had to give this beer a 5 in appearance. Super crystal clear as I had expected. Lagre head that lasted for ever due to the constant stream of bubbles swirling around the glass on the way from the bottlom to the top. It was really fun just to watch this beer. Aromas were a little weak, yeasty and a little banana, but not as much as I expected. Flavor was better. Some bubblegum and more banana, funny that it tasted so much like a Hefe without looking like one. Pretty good actually.

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2006
Brilliant pale yellow, large head, good lace. Banana aroma, with a sweet bready element. Very carbonated (even toward the end), but also very flavourful-- bubbleggum, vanilla, banana, and sweet spices. Excellent.

ElGaucho (2393) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Wheat aroma with banana notes. Similar to a standard weissbier. Light gold in body. azy with lots of bubbles. Good sized, white head that is mostly lasting. A little lace. Initial impresion is that there is quite a bit of flavor for a weissbier. Fairly well carbonated. Excellent. Served a little cold. Although this is only my 1st or 2nd Kristal, this is what I would imagine to be a very good example of the style and I see now that it has a 100 percentile for the style.

shared a bottle with illini08. great hefe aroma, unfortunately it was downhill from there. the usual clove, banana and bubblegum aroma but the filtering seems to have taken out some of the flavor along with the body.

500 mL bottle. Poured a very clear gold with a small white head. Tons of carbonation floating up the glass. Some of the bubblegum/banana aromas you would expect from a regular hefe, but its missing any malty or spicy aromas. Flavor is just the same. A decent wheat, but its missing some of the body and flavor of its unfiltered counterpart.

bkurtz (1061) - MOROCCO - DEC 28, 2005
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.
