3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet wheat malt and fruity nose and crystal clear golden color with minimal head and lace that dissipates quickly. Sweet light buttery caramel flavor with a distinct bitterness and a nice hoppy finish for a wheat…moreso than I had expected. I also detect a warm alcohol hint in the brew.
Reviewed from notes: pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Raw wheat on the nose, not much else; follows onto the palate. Pretty one-dimensional. JakeSparks (125) - Alvin, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2013
funny to see this listed, was drinking this when it was the kristal weizen, six packs never lasted long, case deals at krogers were the best, 20 bucks usually Tabednar (139) - - JUN 23, 2012
This is a simple beer but I am really sad it not available any longer. It was a nice, easy drinking beer that still have a tasty palate with a nice balance of hops and malt. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - APR 10, 2012
Smoky stressed yeast nose with stale grainy malts. Taste of copper, oxidized malt and mold. Nuff said. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Pours gold with a small white head. Smells like wheat and fried plantains (which I found quite interesting, and was probably the best part of the aroma). Tastes like a generic beer, with wheat and some sweetness, which was reminiscent of fried plantains (another plus for this beer). Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Saint Arnold Texas Wheat finishes with mild sweetness. I wouldn’t say this beer was great, but I am sad that it was discontinued. It was a Texas icon.

Pours pretty yellow with a small off-white head. Aroma is weak wheat malts and other pale malts with a bare hint of citrus. The flavor is the same; weak. Thin, and I guess refreshing on a summer day. But that’s about all it would be good for. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of light sour wheat malt. Light sour wheaty malt flavor with a light bitter. A bit fizzy but a decent wheat. Koelschtrinker (20397) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Wässriger, kaum aromatischer Antrunk. Im Verlauf wenig würzig und hefig, ansonsten trocken und weiter laff. Die minimale Bananennotekann in geringem Maße überzeugen, wirkt aber verloren. Oberflächlich. 8/6/7/5/9/6

Thin, white head. Appearance is medium yellow, very clear. Aroma is all yeast. The taste is thin, with little discernible flavor. Not at all bitter. Fizzy. Not recommended. Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Clear golden brew with some soapy white head - obviously filtered. Aromas of wheat, bready malt, and some citrus. Not much going on aroma or flavor wise here. Very pedestrian - a decent thirst quincher but not much else.
