COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crystal-clear brilliance and lively sparkling carbonic acid are the outstanding features of Maisels Weisse Kristall and make it a wonderfully exuberant refreshment. Due to the special composition of sun-ripened wheat varieties and brighter barley malts, fermented and aged with our special white yeast, unfolds at first sip a balanced bouquet of different fruit flavors of ripe banana to a slight citrus note, which mixes at departure with the typical, slightly spicy wheat beer flavor. A predicate for a particular quality.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle. Poured a medium yellow with a large white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was strong of yeast, light flowery hops and a straw malt with notes of banana. It tasted very light with the flavor being very yeasty and slightly bitter in the beginning and mellowed to a mild yeast flavor with a hint of banana and some spice. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall an OK light kristall weisse.

500ml bottle (Tante Lisbeth, Berlin)
Is there a slice of lemon in this, as its a pure lemon aroma? Thinnish palate. Hints of bananas, just gentle wheat. OK, there was a slice of lemon hiding in the massive tight head. However, if thats the way to serve it, thats fine by me. Easy drinker - clean, but perhaps a bit dull too. Kristalls will rarely compare to a proper hefe. To be honest, the lemon was the best bit.
