COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In our golden-yellow crystal-clear wheat beer the fresh citrus flavour harmonises very well with spicy banana notes. The fine sparkling gives it a tangy and animated appearance. Throughout summer and winter, its a prickling experience. It goes well with fish, seafood, white meat or it can be enjoyed as an aperitif. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 Maybe it is me but I am not a Kristall Weissbier fan, it seems like they make a flavourful weiss then suck all the flavour out it. Page 489 of Michael Jacksons Great Beer Guide.

Pours crystal clear pale pale yellow with big, dense, lasting head. Lively carbonation. Slight clove aroma, slight banana aroma. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. Not great.

An excellent Weizen. Poured to a thick white head which quickly disappeared back into the glass. Color is light golden brown. Aroma is nice. Mouthfeel is smooth with little aftertaste. Flavor is great for a hefe. Do not use a lemon.

Pours a crystal clear pale yellow. The head is huge, frothy, and of decent duration. Carbonation is good with tight, compact bubbles. Aroma is initially strong with banana but soon gives way to a more fruiiness and finally a dry spicey quality. The flavor of the first few sips is fruity and then lighly spiced. Eventually this gives way to a more dry and somewhat champagne like feel. The feel overall is light and crisp.

My least favorite of the Weizen family. All the unfiltered goodness has been filtered leaving me with a bland, banana-y, thin-palate, weak brew. Sigh.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Poured a pale yellow with a huge white fluffy head that lasted quite a while. Great lacing. Very sweet citrus smell. Tast was not overly sweet. Citrus, banana, although very slight...Very yeasty up front, and slightly bitter, dry finish...Very drinkable beer. Really, no aftertaste at all. Would be a great summer brew...

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Light color with substantial white head. Crisp aroma of banana, wheat. Taste is of light grains, banana, spices. Body is a bit on the weak side with a thinness to it that goes beyond the lightness of a Hefe. Decent, but probably not my style.

Pours colden yellow and clear. Smell is baked bread and doughy with some light fruit scents in the background. Taste is light and crisp with a yeasty taste to it but accented with spice and bannana also a hint of bubblegum at the end. This stuff is rediculously drinkable and I took repeated swallows with no dificulty at all. Perfect for session beer and after cutting the grass on a hot summer day, could also see this being amazing as the sun is setting on a beach trip! Will buy again!

Not a bad thing. I put a lemon in it, so that cut down on the bitterness. Little bite to it, and not as warm and full bodied as I wouldve hoped.
