3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 50cl. Poured clear gold with a blooming white head. High carbonation. Cool sweet wheaty aromas. Classic bubblegum flavour, a little fruity - banana - but no so much as other weizen I’ve had. Slightly acidic in the aftertaste. Slick palate, extremely easy to drink and goes down well. Decent kristalweiss.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice golden color with a creamy white head (the fame of its lasting head did not apply to mine). Aroma of banana and some spice and pepper. Quite creamy and spicy on the tongue. The Tastes banana and wheat mainly. Very good aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale yellow with a huge foamy white head. Mad bubbles swirling for a long time. Aroma is spice and ripe banana. The wheat comes out in the taste, with a borderline creamy mouthfeel. Kind of like a lite version of their weisse, with a bit more body. Surpsingly drinkable and smooth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2006 Wildly spritzy pour spiralling with a helix of bubbles. Snowy ice cream-cone head. Candyish banana snout. The same rounded fruitiness and wheaty softness as the unfiltered version. Maybe just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Plenty of character and moreish fruitiness for a Kristall.

Picked up a bottle of this beer, having tryed the 3 others, with some doubt. The appearance is wonderful...what a beut in the head department!!! the smell is similair to bananas and cloves., odd, but still great, and the taste is sweet and full that hints of the style, this beer has made me like wheat beers again!

Well they sure as hell make good-looking beers. The heads on the Franziskaner range are always formidable and last longer than Wagner’s Ring cycle. This one is no exception, and it’s as kristall-klar as you’d expect for the style. Lovely bananas’n’cream aroma with classic clove notes and some nose-prickling pepper. Very true to style. The flavour mix is more of the same - mashed banana, bubblegum and some clove bite to the finish. It’s quenching, with some late lemon candy sourness. The carbonation is a little hard for my taste but that’s a minor criticism. Overall, a very good kristallweizen. (500ml bottle from Camperdown Cellars, Darlinghurst. Best before Jan 07)
