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.

crazyvin (1966) - New York, USA - JAN 27, 2013
A nice clear golden yellow body, a nice frothy white head that faded down to a thin coating, nice lacing. Aroma had strong white notes, a good mix of clove, banana and some black pepper. Flavor was initially mildly sweet from the wheat. Banana and cloves really went well together and complemented the wheat notes almost beautifully. Body had some nice carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink.

eduardovl (871) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle poured in its own weizen glass. A - Huge fluffy bubbled aired white head. many tiny bubbles fleeing from the bottom. Pale yellow and clear color. A filtered Weiss, right? S - Strong smell of banana in the nose. Cinnamon and cloves. Delicious flowery-spicy combination. Also malts and yeasts. The pure definition of liquid bread T - Much like the aroma. Wheat is very evident followed by the banana and spices (again, cinnamon and cloves). A bit earthy too. Very very light hops bitterness. Just great M - Medium and bit molasses body. Big carbonation. Dry taste and light bitterness. Very pleasant and drinkable O - Delicious as expected from a Weihenstephaner. Refreshing and delicious [ BA Review @ 6/8/2011 ]

Salmoniform (832) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Clear straw hue with creamy white head that settled. Aroma is wheat, honey, straw, sulphur, clove. Mouthfeel is great with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a noble hop bitterness following and slight sulphur finish. Overall this is a good brew.

Transfer from BA review on 11-29-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a golden color with a fizzy white head of two fingers. The head fades relatively quickly, fading to leave a lighter level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is mainly of a grainy and bready smell mixed with aromas of some sweeter caramel and a bit of light fruits (banana, orange, and pear). Rounding out the aroma are some quite light but detectable aromas of some spice of clove and coriander as well as a yeasty cake aroma. Taste – The taste begins with a slightly grainy and moderately caramel sweetened flavor. As the taste advances some of the yeast and spice greet the tongue with the caramel fading but being replaced by some lighter fruit flavors of banana and citrus. More toward the end, a somewhat grassy flavor comes to the tongue as well as the grainy tastes seeming to amplify to some extent, with the mix of flavors in the end, leaving a rather nice clean and malty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side for a brew of 5.4 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Both are rather nice for the blend of grainy malt, sweet, and lightly hopped flavors of the beer and make for a very easy drinking brew. Overall – A nice very easy drinking brew with some great blend of tastes making it a nice flavorful drinker.

"hands down the best filtered wheat i’ve ever had. the aroma had a touch of skunk at first, but was actually quite nice. the flavor was near perfect in its bubble gum-banana-clove goodness. fresh, smooth, makes me wonder how good the unfiltered version is. can Schneider have a rival?"
