Fatehunter (2408) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2013
A big two and half fingers of head on a hazy, straw colored body. Looks great. The aroma is banana bread and orange, faint overall. The taste is moderately bitter with a light fruit sweetness and a banana finish. Crisp texture with moderate carbonation and medium body. This is a great kristalweizen.

Turtles (2283) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2016
500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden, white frothy head, some lacing. Faint citrus and grassy aroma. Light-bodied, medium carbonated. Mild taste, citrus, bread and grass. Fairly crisp finish.

Douberd (5166) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2016
(Erdinger Weissbier Kristallklar) Bottle 500ml at home. ABV 5.3% Bright golden colour on the body, crystal clear of course, with intense activity in the glass and a tall and thick white head on top, great retention. Aroma of wheat, grass, faint fruity notes. Taste also of wheat, fresh cut grass, fruity touches. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Good.

cazort (560) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Exactly what I’d expect from this style, light, crisp, refreshing, but a little bland. Aroma is weak, less fruity, there is only a hint of fruitness (some banana) towards the end of the sip, as I swallow, and a little into the finish. Flavor is very mild, slightly sweet, ever-so-slightly sour, and a tiny bitterness in the finish. Overall this beer was more flavorful in the finish, at the start of the sip it was almost like sparkling water. An odd sensation drinking. I can see this being a good summer beer, especially on a hot day, but I prefer the traditional German wheat beers, especially at this time of year (Winter).

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2016 50 cl. bottle. Very clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Average lacing. Weak to medium aroma which consists of wheat, banana, bubblegum, and hints of spice. Taste is mostly sweet, with a light sourness. Almost no bitterness. Mouthfeel is light but still pleasant. A medium-bodied, oily textured beer with lively carbonation. It has a medium finish which is a bit sour and quite acidic. Overall, it lacks the depth of a standard weissbier but it’s easily and pleasantly drinkable.

AntonyWilson (231) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 23, 2016
500ml Bottle: Pours a crystal clear golden with effervescent white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of citrus, some spice and a little bit of dish washing soap. Has some banana phenolics when tasting, but not much. Coriander is also a bit subdued. Highly carbonated with medium to light body. Slick mouthfeel with fair bitterness. Not my favourite kristal weiss.

MrTipple (3923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2016
Pale grain malts, light wheat, light floral hops. Clear gold, massive, frothy, white head. More pale grain malts, little else frankly, lively carbonation, light bodied. Boring Kristallweizen, not exactly too flavourful. Bottle from Wine Rack, Chiswick.

Aus der Flasche bei meinem Albaner getrunken. Leider mit der unvermeidlichen Zitronenscheibe... Kein Kommentar.
