Nuffield (4121) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Generous banana aroma, esters, lightly yeasty. Sweet. Big head, ruby amber color, clear. Frothy, but limp at the end, and thin flavor. Disappointing. Bottle.

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. The beer is dark golden colored with a lasting white head. Too dark for the style. The aroma is similar to a dunkel weizen, with wheat and some dark fruit presence. A bit sweet and malty. I would prefer a lighter color and body, with less malt presence. Not what I look for in a beer of this style. Overall, this was just ok.

ContemplateBeer (2051) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Aroma of pepper, beechwood; impressions of clove, light cinnamon and banana. Appearance is translucent chestnut brown with bubbly tan head. Flavor matches the nose; the clove and banana are predominant; the finish is slightly peppery with some sweet gum. The body is medium/full, the texture is sticky and the carbonation is soft. Awesome.

This may be my first Kristallweizen. A filtered Hefeweizen, but it still retains all the best flavors.

12oz bottle shared by durhambeer - thanks, Bob! Faintly clouded amber pour, with gold tints peeking through. Medium, crisp carbonation. Dont know what I was expecting but was surprised to find the spice and so forth in the nose. Lively, full bodied, but the taste was distractingly close to "holiday" beers. Okay.

Terminus (3634) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle-thanks to a good friend in Southern WI for shipping me some New Glarus stuff! December 2012-pours bright copper hue with a fizzy white head-crystal clear with medium carbonation. nose is bigtime banana and some wet cardboard/cereal notes. maybe a bit on the old side. flavors exhibit sour grains and ripe banana. Very round body here-lots of character however, i think im being a bit generous on the score here. this wasnt a very refreshing beer like it should be and had some off flavors however, I have never had a good krystal weiss before, so its hard to compare it to others.

BelgianBeerGal (3950) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Traded bottle. Pours way darker than expected when I compare it to the German kristals Im familiar with; a nice, clear, copper color with a medium tan head. Richer flavor too that is nice since this style can sometimes get bland. Great job.

Fruit, vanilla, dough aroma. Clear amber with foamy off white head. Light bodied. Smooth with a cinnamon spice flavor. Very slight bitterness on the finish.

joeneugs (6231) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 11, 2012
12 oz. bottle. It pours a really nice dark red/copper color (like a fox!) with a large frothy off white head. Very surprising for this style. The aroma is decidedly German weizen yeasty goodness with lots of clove, lighter notes of banana and big bubble gum. Some darker, fruity malts as well. The flavor is pretty much the same. Lots of clove and bubblegum with hints of cinnamon spice and dark bready malts. Light tartness near the finish. The body is very light and highly carbonated. I liked it a lot as a dunkelweizen, too bad I was looking forward to a Kristall.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle:   Coppery amber, reddished hued, clear and vibrant, light carbonation, large foamy off-white head, nice lacing.   Wheaty nose, soft clove and banana.   Wheaty on the tongue, clove and banana, slight bubble gum, also a bit spicy.   Tastes a bit of nutmeg/cinnamon.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Standard wheaty flavors die off rather quickly leaving the spicy notes to linger.   A bit different, darker, a bit more red than usual, and certainly spiced unlike others, but this was still a treat to drink!
