Beautiful beer! Literally. Must be poured like I got it here at Bodega downtown La Crosse, in a tall weisse beer glass - then it looks so efervescent; almost glowing. Great offwhite foamy huge head with lots of lace. Immensely satisfying yet light and refreshing. Lovely typical esthery aroma, great fruity carbonated flavor. Body to match. Brilliant yellow gold color. I’m enjoying it with salted roasted giant Chinese soy beans. *burp* desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2007
Crystal clear gold body with a huge, pillowy white head. Aroma of banana and clovy, like a hefe. Flavor has more of the same, with a hoppy bite and lots of effervescence. Finishes sweet and tart. My first sample of an interesting style. Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Pours suck a pale yellow it is almost void of any color at all. Large expanding foamy head. Aroma is light fruit, pear and apple, with notes of wheat. Foam sings like a bowl of Rice Krispies. Very light and smooth drinking, bit of an oily feel, with a bit of spice in the flavor with preludes a gentle warmth. Very nice. Reid (2626) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 13, 2007
Yellow straw colour beer, with a huge frothy pure white head, generous carbonation visible.
Wheaty nose, sweet with hints of lemon, some spicy esters also apparent.
Light flavours of spice and banana esters, wheat is at the fore smooth, rolls along the tongue effoertlessly , some citric elements come into play, fast dry finish.
A very drinkable beer from Germany and my first Kristallweizen.. Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 13, 2007
poured into a tall goblet. pours a clear golden yellow with lots of bubbly carbonation. has a full white frothy head, aroma of sweet wheat. taste is good and wheaty, very light and refreshing. sweet on the front, with a wheaty middle to finish. a filtered hefeviezen, good, but I like unfiltered better. German beers are very reliable and crisp, though that is there standard.....

Pours a lovely yellow golden hue, aromas of bananas, lemon sorbet, flowers, cereal, and yeast rise out of frothy white head, mostly lasting, sheets of fine lace. Pale biscuity malts, banana, yeast, quiet dry palate, faint hops, yeasty twang. Skinny, but flavorful. Hoser (387) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2007
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 Jackson’s Great Beer Guide. AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 8, 2007
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. wataru (11) - USA - MAR 3, 2007
Carbonation was good with compact bubbles. Color is crystal clear gold. Aroma was banana and citrus. Flavor is not overly sweet. Not bad. Mouthfeel is very smooth. Very light body. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAR 1, 2007
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.
