Bottle bought @ systembolaget. Pours clear pale golden with a big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some sticky spotty trace on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet with wheat crackers, white bread, cloves, banana leaves, hay and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter, tiny sour, malty, estery and tiny spicy with wheat crackers, heavy cloves, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns, banana bread, lemon zest and pear skins. Mouthfeel is soft, round and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, tiny sour, malty, estery and tiny spicy with wheat crackers, banana bread, hay, cloves and white pepper corns. Solid...

massingasetta (177) - München, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2014
Habe lang kein Kristallweizen mehr getrunken... Die Farbe ist schön und auch der Geruch ist weizig und hefig, wie es auch bei einem Kristal sein soll. Dieses Bier unterscheidet sich nicht deutlich vom Hefeweizen von der gleichen Brauerei. Ich vermisse das Anderartige hier. Allerdings kann man nicht gegen den Geschmach sagen. Alles ist einfach rund aber nicht überragend.

KeefOz (855) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2014
BB 16.01.15. Poured a crystal clear pale golden colour with a big (too big, over 4-fingers) white frothy head that retained well and laced as spots. Carbonation initially moderate with medium sized bubbles but it dropped to low very quickly. Aroma faintly of grain malt, subtle cloves, possibly lemon, no hops. Taste subtly sweet malt, quite strong cloves, no hops bitterness. Light body. Crisp, light, clean, refreshing with long moderately clovey finish.

Bottle 50 CL. Pours golden with massive white foaming head. Spicy, banana, grass. Not too bad.

Weihenstephaner Kristall Weissbier is a solid wheat beer from Germany. Clear yellow pour with a thick frothy head with some wheat aroma. Taste has some banana notes and finishes clean. The clear version of a wheat might appeal to those that don’t like the thickness of the unfiltered Hefeweizens. Kristall Weiss fills the reputation as a classic German style well.
