4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint bottle. $3.99 at Well’s. Pours, well, crystal clear, with a yellow tinge. Big pillowy white head. Little if any lacing. Aroma is subtle: yeast, banana, malt. Flavor is much the same. Almost like drinking water. Deliciously light yeast-banana water.
My favorite part of this beer is the appearance. When poured, the clear nature of the liquid make this phenomenon clearly visible: a tornado of carbonation spiraling up from the bottom of my pint glass (not the proper glassware, but hey). I stared in fascination, then drank the beer.
The best light beer I’ve ever had.

Clean in appearance, with a fine German hop aroma. Some fruit in the flavor. Very nice.

The beautiful bastards at Weihenstephaner have done it again. This was my first Kristallweizen but I’m sold. The appearance was extremely sexy. Effervescent, clear, heady, golden. I’m convinced that this beer’s looks will get you laid. Potential sex partners will shed their clothes and inhibitions at the sight of this glorious beer. Okay, I might be exaggerating a little but it’s a really good looking beer. Smell is excellent, too. The aroma had some banana, clove, and yeast. Taste had lots of banana, a good amount of bubblegum sweetness, cream, and spicy yeast. White meat and creamy cheeses would be a perfect match for this ale. Kristall was silky smooth, light, and refreshing. This one is perfect for when you want a wheat ale that’s a bit more fitting for a special occasion.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- Banana, laffy taffy,spices, wheat.
A- Yellow color, crystal clear liquid, white head.
T- Banana, banana, banana taffy, slight spice, wheat, slightly sweet, bubblegum.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish.
O- Tons of banana in here. A lot like Banana laffy taffy. A little bit of spice like cloves and coriander come through as well as a hint of bubble gum that make it feel like a lesser Hefeweizen, but lesser doesn’t mean worse! The banana and flavor is just outstanding! The appearance too. I have never seen a beer so clear. It’s like looking through a glass of hinted water. Just a great beer. Really want to try more of this style now.

The body has a clear golden color with lots of beautiful carbonation steaming up to the surface. The pour produced a very tall, aggressive and tight foamy head. It has a bright white color with great retention and lacing. Its nose is full of fruity yeast with notes of banana and clove. There are notes of pale beady wheat as well and just a touch of citrus. The flavor is very bright and fresh with plenty of fruity yeast. There are notes of banana, clove and a slight hint of citrus fade into dry crisp wheat malt notes. The finish is very crisp and snappy with some wheat tang and citrus quickly leaving the tongue. The body has a solid medium feel with cleansing active carbonation.

For those that believe their Bud Light is refreshing, they need to try one of these. Clean aroma of wheat and slight citrus. Clear golden appearance with a white head. Light and watery palate with good carbonation. The finish is clean. Great blend of wheat, citrus and pale malts. This has a German feel that makes it traditional yet unique. Good summer beer.

Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a transparent golden with a layer of off white head. Aroma of bananas, yeast, and bread malts. Taste is nice and crisp, the yeast hits you first then the bananas join in.
