4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very light yellow with a strong head. Crystal clear as the name says. Wheat, sugar, a hint of earthy yeast. Very light taste of wheat and barley. Light as befits a filtered wheat beer. Not bad but certainly not exciting in any way.

Halmgul med massa skum. Luktar lite hö. Smakar lite fadd. Lite skumbanan. Men ingen jäst. Förstår inte hur man skulle kunna välja en kristall om det finns hefe.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A golden beer in the own glass. Nice bubbling, a head is big and blond. Aroma has sweet fruitness of perries and bananas, hint of spicyness of wheat. Taste has fruitness, some bananas, quite sweet. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Simplified by filtering and also too sweet. Nice, anyway.

Pours clear golden with a white foamy head. Aroma is sweetish with fruits and bubblegum. Flavor is rather similar, mild and slightly sweet, but finishes with a faint bitterness. Slightly slicky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. A mild but decent thirst quencher. (500ml bottle, bb 01-2018)

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 0.5l. Clear golden pour with three finger soapy white head. Good retention. Malty sweet taste, lots of caramel, quite herbal. Mot much of a weizen character. Pretty nice, though.
Thin body with soft carbonation. Light and watery texture. Quite weak in taste and aroma, empty. Not unpleasant, just heavily subdued and watered down. A shame, to be honest. Mild tartness in the aftertaste. Grainy aroma, herbal, a bit peppery. Malty. Slight caramel. Same as smell, not much of a weizen character at all.
Overall, pleasant, but very weak and watered down.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden amber with two finger fluffy head that didn't linger long
Nose is sweet like apple-cider, hints yeast and bread. (The wife thought it had hints of orange but that passed me by)
Mouthfeel moderate carbonation, delicate, a little thin yet leaving a light slickness.
It's has restrained fresh flavours, upfront notes of white fruit followed by a hint of bitterness but right at the back very slight acerbic metallic taste.
Best description is it's a bottle of bubbly, a sparkling beer but needs to be more robust.
