BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Straw color with a bit of gold, thick retentive head and lacing. Aroma is sweet with esters and a bit of pale malt & wheat. The flavor is watery, citrusy tart and a rush of wheat. Finishes watery, a good malty backbone and a light body. Eh, a watery german hefe, what’s new?

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2006 This is my first Kristalweizen. A Tucher which so far has been a company that has not impressed me overly much. Sampled from a 16 oz brown bottle the beer poured a medium golden color with a large yellow head. The aroma is wheat and a hint of tang. The texture is crisp and clean. There is not a whole lot of flavor to be found. Some wheat. Very mild citrus. Not much else. No aftertaste to speak of. Refreshing but that is all.

Pours a clear gold with a large, fluffy white head. Aroma is faint, malty and a bit of fruit, maybe banana. Flavor is similar to Tucher’s Dunkles hefeweizen, but less robust. Not bad, but not my favorite from this particular brewery.

beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Yellow gold color. Small head. Aroma is fruity, malty and grassy. A medium to light bodied kristal weiss. Malts are fruity with orange and banana flavors. Very clear colors, I am assuming they filter this beer. Slightly spicy hops. Light and refreshing. Smooth and clean. Nothing bad, but nothing really good here either. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 23, 2004
2003 bottle. Pours a light pear-yellow. Kristal clear (haha, get it), absolute massive filtration. Big white head and decent lacing, surprisingly. Aroma is light, smells of warm summer breeze and bananas, with some light orange zest and a touch of spicy hops. Flavor was light and mouthfeel was spritzy. For as much as I hate this style, it did taste pretty good. Citrus, banana, and a good spicy hops bouquet. Dosent have much mouthfeel, no sediment to hang on to. I will say, however, that this wasnt as altogether souless as I thought a Kristalweizen would be.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 15, 2004
Billowing foamy head seemingly miles high {exaggerating}, clearer, golden but watery composition (perhaps this is what a Kristall (crystal) Weizen is, though. I guess this is my first Kristall Weizen - I do not remember that specification on a beer before. Well, it's good, but it lacks - particularly in flavour and palate. Contrasted to Tucher's Dunkles Hefe-Weizen, this stuff is weak, diluted swill - but that is too harsh. The Dunkles Hefe-Weizen is a truly great beer, and this one is merely slightly above average. Thus, it is a matter of distinguishing between more-towards-normality or a more-towards-excellence beer. I choose Tucher's outstanding Dunkles Hefe-Weizen.

firemedic713 (169) - Palm Bay, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2004
Nice clear golden color with a small creamy white head that lasted for a bit. Mild malt and wheat nose. Flavors to match aroma. Pretty good.

3.6
BeerandBlues2 (13321) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Malty and yeasty aroma. Pours yellow with a large white head and shows fair lacing. Initially sweet and then bitter. Light, oily and soft on the palate.

3.8
Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Nice clear golden color,small creamy white head that hung around for a decent time,leaving a nice lace.Malty,wheat aroma with hints of citrus and maybe a slight hint of berry in there as well.Wheat and light malt taste with a mild lemon flavor coming on and fairly sweet.The hops do manage to make an appearance but it's mild and fleeting at best.I also can just detect a mild spice after the brew begins to warm a bit.The finish is mild fruity and wheaty and sweet.A highly drinkable brew,and well worth getting if you can find it.

sethdude (706) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Great billowing head, decent lacing. Heavily carbonated gold color, looks like a cheap lager. smells slightly skunky (old bottle?), sweet, almost like pure sugarcane. Flavor is again sweet, citrusy, and a bit spicy. Reminded me of a weak belgian single.
