Crystal-clear brilliance and lively sparkling carbonic acid are the outstanding features of Maisel’s 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's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
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.

C’est une blanche qui est filtrée. Un léger fumé au gout, pas sucré comme certaines blanches, très légère amertume. Très légère.

500ml bottle. Clear bright gold, large rich white meringue head, ever so slowly fades to a thin cap. Nose is wheat, yeast, nutmeg, clove, a little smoke. Smooth texture, wheat and spice flavors with banana on the medium finish.

squzzi (39) - Wijchen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle. Pours light golden with white head, big bubbles dispersing quickly. Cloves, banana, wheat and yeast. Fresh and drinkable. The wheat is in place, although very light in this beer. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
