3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma has some banana and honey, hints of citrus. Colour is dark yellow, very clear, white foamy head. Palate has relatively lot of bubbles, mouthfeeling is quite close to sparkling wines. Taste has banana flavours, otherwise it’s very light and with not so many nuances. Light and sparkling beer, that goes nicely on a hot day, but isn’t very interesting.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Stockmann in Tallinn. BB 03.12.15. Very clear, pale golden colour with a big white frothy head. Looks similar to Original Helles I think, only the head seems bigger and I see more bubbles rising. On the nose it’s sweet, I get a lot of bubblegum and banana notes, as well as wheat, dough, herbal hops. Some bandaid too unfortunately. Tastes very crisp and malty, semisweet, then herbal bitter, with a dry, cloying finish. Light body, very active carbonation. Sharp, even stingy. Strange... not exactly my kind of thing. It’s my first Kristallweizen, but I dare say it doesn’t feel right - I would almost say it’s gone off. Will sooner or later give it another try.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle
Clear white golden beer with big white head. Aroma has banana, clove, toffee and wheat bread. Flavor has light fruitiness, banana, some yeastiness and some spiciness. Palate is medium full and foamy. Finish has mild bitterness. Aftertaste is watery with some sweet toffee, wheat and banana. Faint yeastiness. The aftertaste is a bit stingy actually. Not as rich as the unfiltered. Mostly had this just to get the style tick.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Plonk. Pale amber crystal clear pour with big rocky white head. Hefeweizen esters are subtle banana and pear, subtle, that distinctive weihenstephaner yeast. Without the yeast it’s more subtle than their regular hefe, but still hits a nice balance.
