Crystal clear golden coloured body with a nice off-white head, even from draught. Aroma of wheat, coriander seed, yeast, corn and a small amount of curacao. Medium-bodied; Chewy taste with strong bananas, cloves and yeast in the taste. Aftertaste is nice and refreshing - malt is leftover with a good amount of sweetness. Overall, a good american kristall - If you bottled this with a german label, you’d never know it was produced in the states...let alone a suburb of Washington! A great beer to start off the Old Dominion Beer Festival with! I sampled this six ounce sample from pseudo-draught at the Old Dominion 2005 Beer Festival on 24-June-2005 in Ashburn, Virginia.

Aug. 2006 - Crisp and clean wheat beer. Clear yellow color. A moderate amount of wheatyness with some spices (though not clove). Flavor is lemony with some grassiness with a tart tang finish. An alrighty summer beer. radagast83 (8019) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2007
I had this some time ago but had only remembered recently about it when I was going through old beer notes and bottles that I had been saving. Poured a clear light amber color, medium head. Carbonation a little higher than I had expected. Banana, wheat, and lemon. It was decent, but probably a style I’d avoid in the future. ubamartian (155) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2007
Bottle marked 7/27/07. Clear light gold. minimal head. Aroma is mild wheat and earth. Taste of wheat and some mild earthly tones. Mouthfeel is rather heavy for what I was looking at. A heavy medium mouthfeel. The aftertaste is a bit of wheat with some dcent malts. overall not bad, but since this isn’t my favorite beer style, that’s saying a lot! alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Bottle; poured a clear, dull and light gold. Lots of carbonation visible early. Aroma was not great; lots of wheat, some lemon and a light funkiness. Flavor was on the mellow side, but had a unidentified flavor that made it unappealing to me. That being said, this has never been one of my preferred styles.

Beef liver and clove aroma. Weird! Fairly clear golden color, thin white head. Tastes still a bit meaty with coriander. Very strange brew, both hearty and refreshing. Hop finish. Not exactly bad, and uprated for originality. spector (906) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Got a slight wheat aroma.Pours a medium copper with a slight off white head.Light malt in the flavors.Medium mouthfeel with lots of malt in the finish. thebaldwizard (1207) - Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Light citrus with some wheat malt in the aroma. Medium brown body with a small head. Medium palate showcases flavors that are tangy, nutty and smooth. Refreshing--but doesn’t have as many wheat characteristics as I expected. brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Thanks to Secret Santa. Bottled 6/06. Big Carbonation suspended in hazy golden-straw colored brew. Wheat aroma with light acidity and lemon. A bit of a metallic hint. Semi-sweet with lemon acidity. Hint of wheat that are not to forward or overpowering. Lightly sharp, medium but refreshing body. A good brew ganache (5855) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle (2006, a Kristallweizen, 5.4%). Sour biscuit malt aroma with yeast and a little citrus. Clear golden pour has a short little fizzy head and out-of-control aggressive carbonation. A little sauerkraut and boiled ham and sprouts in the nose, as well. Sweet and sour citrus taste puckers the mouth on first sip. Not as sharp as expected, and more oily/greasy. Light-medium body, citrus/gummy aftertaste. Weirdly sweet and somewhat childish – oy!
