COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The source of its pearling, effervescent taste is the secret fermentation process which we have developed especially for our crystal wheat beer. It quenches your thirst like no other beer. With its elegant appearance, it is the speciality of our brewery. Goes well with fish, seafood and light dishes.

First Kristall I have ever had I think it is the best beer I have had not counting Hoegarrden wit and Hacker Pshorre Weiss. I hope to try more Kristalls. I think it has such a good flavor. What I like about Weiss beers is that they have a real food like taste. They can be smoky or sweet. Each gulp is different, and great. This is a sweet one and tastes wonderful

I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellowish with a white head. Taste sweet, crisp, banana. I thought this was very good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a Weizen glass. There is no freshness date on the label but there is a bottle number 0079 on the back label. Appearance: 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. Smell: 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. Taste/Palate: 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. Notes: This was my first Kristalweizen and I was very impressed with the bright clean flavor and good solid yeast flavor. There was much more yeast character than I was expecting in this crystal clear German wheat beer.

Beautiful beer! Literally. Must be poured like I got it here at Bodega downtown La Crosse, in a tall weisse beer glass - then it looks so efervescent; almost glowing. Great offwhite foamy huge head with lots of lace. Immensely satisfying yet light and refreshing. Lovely typical esthery aroma, great fruity carbonated flavor. Body to match. Brilliant yellow gold color. Iím enjoying it with salted roasted giant Chinese soy beans. *burp*

Wonderful hints of banana clove and spice. Very crisp an pleasant on the palate. Lovely deep orange/ golden hue with a very tight white head. Drinks very smooth with a cleansing of the palate. Fine example of the style.

Clear blonde body with a tall white head. Aroma is citrus and floreal. Taste is obviously lemon. Refreshing. The best Kristallweizen I had so far

Very bright beer, aroma is a little fruity but very much like clean walnut plank. Finish is very dry, sparkles are "yeasty" more than CO2. Exceptionally clean, bright beer that is just as complimentary to fried scallops as it is to watching the game. If you like Heffs more than brown ales, you might like this even more. NOT a great beer if you like Stouts or IPAs.

The beautiful bastards at Weihenstephaner have done it again. This was my first Kristallweizen but Iím sold. The appearance was extremely sexy. Effervescent, clear, heady, golden. Iím convinced that this beerís 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 itís 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 thatís a bit more fitting for a special occasion.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 This is a very nice, tasty, yet crisp, light, refreshing beer. It is gold with a huge, hard-to-control, dense white head that is thicki, long-lasting, only slowly diminishing to a permanent smaller head and it leaves nice lacing in even rings. The aroma is very aromatic but light in body, being light grain, pine, herbal, with a metallic hint. The taste is like the aroma, with definite, persistent, strong flavour, but light and crisp. There is a faint bubblegum element in the middle, before a crisp finish and a long, mellow grain aftertaste. It has light bitterness. In the end, a delicious, refreshing beer that is highly drinkable, light & crisp but very flavourful.
