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.

Pours a nice clear straw yellow with thick white head, lots of lacing. Aroma obvious of wheat and a very clean yeast and slight spices. Flavor matches well and tastes extremely clean. Not bad.

Rostosto (26) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Very interesting beer, like a lager-weiss crossover. Not got the same aaaaahhhh of the hefe but I love this little curiosity of a beer and not a type I’m familiar of at all. Looks amazing and pilsner esque, almost too golden and handsome for words then it bangs you with those cloves and banana flavours of a hefe. Silky on the palate and feels royal when you sip. I just wish it was a hefe but a great beer practical joke. ’What’s that plain john, want another boring lager that you’ve been drinking for 8 million years?’ ’OK I’ll pore it mate’ then hit im’ with this fucker. Good one, he might thank you for it.....

On bottle from Systembolaget Strømstad. Clear golden color, good foam. Fruity and floral aromas, some banana; medium/low aroma intensity. Medium/light body & medium complexity. SOme bitterness, good balance. Enjoyable, but a bit disappointing on aroma intensity.

eduardovl (926) - 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 (950) - 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.
