Kristall Weiss is the filtered version of Tabernash Weiss. The taste and aroma are very similar between the two styles, with Kristall Weiss having a little less body and a more spicy and crisp character. It does not have the cloudiness of the Weiss due to the filtration giving it a bright, golden appearance. This is a wonderful beer for those who care for something lighter with a clean finish.

JPDIPSO (6094) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Clear light straw color with a froth white head. Light sweet wheat aroma with a fleeting light spice. Quite sweet and malty a touch thick in feel. This and american wheats just do not do much for me.

hotstuff (5078) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Bottled on 10/02/01. There was some yucky stuff floating around in this beer that kind of turned me off. It poured a small sized tan head with fine-large sized bubbles that was mostly lasting. The body was cloudy and carbonated along with the yucky stuff floating in it. The hue was pale yellow. The nose was malty, sweet and banana with a acidic and sour taste to it. The mouthfeel was smooth and light-medium bodied. The lacing was good with this beer. This beer would have received a higher rating from me but it had a very weird taste to it that really turned me off.

thedm (6047) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Bottled on 10/2001. This brew poured a small head of mostly lasting white colored fine to medium sized bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a softly carbonated hazy straw yellow colored body. The aroma is a medium strength sweet malt with a touch of fruityness. The mouthfeel is smooth, slightly sour and acidic with notes of crisp bubbly mild alcohol. Very differnet and somewhat refreshing. The flavor is malty, doughy, sweet with a touch of spice and butter.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Clear and golden with a quickly diminishing head. Wonderful smell/aromas, yeasty and fresh. Medium carbonation with a decent texture. Soft and sweet (banana and sugar) malts. Hint of spice. Light and clean beer with a surprising amount of flavor.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Golden/Orange color. Pours a small head which disappeared when I turned my back. Aroma has slight banana notes. The palate is somewhat sour with lemony notes. Crisp and refreshing. Goes down well. Bottled 04/02.

Like JMerritt, I thought that the Kristall was MUCH better than the unfiltered Weiss. Totally legit German Wheat brew that is clear with a hint of sourness. Truly delicious and massively wheaty.

Ernest (7596) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2002
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), with notes of bubble gum and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery (almost syrupy) texture, lively carbonation. Maltier/sweeter than most kristalls. Decent overall.

Filtered wheat beer. Light gold color, medium head. A light tasting wheat beer. Nice flavor, very banana and clove, somewhat lemony. Smooth. Some maltyness, kristal malts. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is neutral.

I never thought I’d like a filtered wheat beer better than its unfiltered equivalent, but then I had this. Wow. Although it had the average golden color of a filtered beer and very little head to speak of, everything else about this blew me away. The aroma was very sweet, almost wine-like. The initial flavor was much the same, with a full spicy flavor. Back-end had a great wheat tang to it. This is a great beer!
