Alehouse exclusive. An American style light bodied wheat ale that is refreshingly flavorful. Crystal wheat ale was inspired by Pyramid’s first beer in 1984 the wheaten ale, which was the first year round wheat beer brewed in America since prohibition

Originally rated on 1/25/09. A decent wheat beer here, flavors of honey, wheat, a little banana also. I didnt really care for it at first but as it warmed a little it got better. o.k. but not great.

On tap at Pyramid Alehouse, Seattle. Boring and uninspiring wheat taste... One is enough...

355ml bottle pours a light golden color with a small white head that leaves a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light fruits with some cereal grains and light grass and citrus. Taste is light malty sweetness with a hint of light citrus and some grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with a bit of carbonation. Has a nice clean finish and is quite refreshing to drink on a hot summers day on the patio or at a campsite.

On tap @ Pyramid Ale House in Sacramento. colour is a light golden, slightly straw colour. Aroma is almost nil, just maltiness. Flavour is also very mild, mostly just wheat malt. Slight bitterness. Overall pretty bland, I think Sierra Nevada crystal wheat is better.

Draft. Golden-amber beer with an off-white head. Wheat and light spice aroma. Wheat and spice flavor with light banana. Medium bodied. Wheat and spice lingers with light banana.

JaBier (8156) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Sample at the brewpub in Berkeley on 8/8/10. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Sweet malt nose with honey and wheat malt. Creamy malt flavor with honey and wheat malt before a sweet finish. Pretty good for the style.

DuffMan (10606) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle, sampled at Trackside’s Saturday tastings in Medicine Hat. Pretty frigging sweet that my little local not only brings in stuff I’ve never had before, but actually lets me pay a buck to try it out! clear pale gold, not much of a head in my little sample tumbler. Aroma is sweetly wheaty. Flavours are light sweet grains with a hint of lemon. Not much to it really, but as a summer sun beer, it would pass.
