3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2016 Bottle. Golden color with creamy white head. Aroma is citrusy, peaches, some yeasts. Taste is bananas, peaches, rather sweet. Quite smooth mouthfeel. Delicious. Best Kristall I know. Still, I stick with my opinion that Kristallweizen is the most unnecessary style there is.

The first of this style I’ve had, and it meets the style description to a tee. Certainly pours clear with thin near-white head that lasts about 1/2 finger. Aroma is banana and bubblegum. Flavor has the same with some mild clove and hint of hop bitter. Finish is clean and calls for more. Very drinkable, as all from this brewery.

Pours a clear light golden color with a super thick white head. Aroma is of cloves, banana, yeast, and hay. A heavier, oil slick palate. Flavor is of yeast, clove, oak, bittersweet zest, and wheat. Leaves a clovey yeast finish.

Opinion of a beginner beer fan: Smells slightly of bananas and honey, but not too strongly. Taste is slightly underwhelming with a light mouthfeel.

Bottle, thanks rayaron. Clear yellow golden with a huge creamy white head. Smell of clove, yeast, banana and overripe fruit. Sweet, fruity, notes of yeast and banana, mild lemony bitterness, dry finish. Light bodied, fizzy. Not flavorful as Hefe, but well made and decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer has a very nice look. The beer pours a very thick layer of soft fluffy white foam. A lot of the foam collapses quickly, but a decent layer of foam remains on top of the beer. The beer itself is of course crystal clear. The beer shows a lot of nice bubbles rising to the top. The color of the beer is a nice golden yellow. The smell of the beer is a nice typical weissbier smell. It is set and delicate. I can clearly smell koriander and citrus fruits, like almost every weissbier. The beer has a nice fruity sweet aroma, which is accompanied by a nice zesty and koriander bitterness. The smell is nice but not very special. The taste of the beer is the same. It is a typical taste of weissbier. It has the same aspects as the smell. It has the nice citrusy and koriander in it. The balance between bitterness and sweeties is very nice. All in all, it is a good weissbier. However, I miss the nice cloudiness an unfiltered weissbier can have. The soft aspect this can give is lost in here. The regular Weihenstephaner is beter.

Originally rated on 7/31/08. This was my first kristal beer. Have to say it was pretty good. It poured a clear pale yellow body, medium carbonation, and a thick head that disappeared quickly. Aroma of cloves, nutmeg, and a little banana. Mouthfeel was good and smooth. Flavor is predominatley clove and nutmeg with a little friutiness thrown in. Overall a pretty good beer, but the sweetness would keep me from drinking several of these in a row
