3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown 0.5 litre bottle, 5.2%, best before 01/2008, drank 07/2007.
Poured into one of my Franziskaner Weissbier glasses.
It looks the part, light golden yellow with a white head which is constantly being refurbished by the bubbles from below.
Full on banana, with vanilla coming a heavy second, very impressive. I was expecting the banana aroma to be a lot less than the hefe weiss, but I didn’t find it so.
Dry overall, but refreashing also, the aromas come out in the flavour too, so banana and vanilla hit your mouth in waves, these tastes stay in the mouthfeel and make this a very drinkable beer IMHO.

Bottle while on vacation in Italy, where all tourists are German. The pour is clear, brilliant gold with a large white head. The nose is of the standard weissbier profile - bananas, sugar, a bit of spice. The taste follows suit - sweet banana fruit gives over to thirst-quenching spring water on the light finish. The body is simple, the carbonation prickly. You could drink this by the yard. Good, uncomplicated.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rating #696, bottle at some italian restaurant in Berlin
Expected appearance for a kristall - golden, clear and with a nice head. Aroma was primarily difficult to rate because the waiter apparently meant that a slice of lemon was supposed to float around under the foamy head, and therefore had an unexpected touch of lemon. Besides from that, only some hay and malts. The flavor had again a touch og lemon or citrus fruits, but it was not to say if this was because of the lemon slice I of course had removed long time ago, or that the beer really has a touch of lemon in it. Then some hay, malts, a bit of sweet fruits (plums or banana) and a nice bitterness. Not as overwhelming sweet or artificial as many other kristalls. Nice, soft, thick palate. A nice kristall, though it doesn’t rock my world.
