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.

dkoonce (911) - Peoples Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Pale and hazy with a thick whte head. The aroma is sweet and fruity, and very wheaty. Light, dry and very drinkable (and Im not a wheat beer fan).

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Pours clear, bright pale yellow with a full, semi creamy froth. Decent head retention. Good residual lacing w a full silky canopy. Aromas of crisp banana cream. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. The texture is somewhat creamy yet retains its snappy cripness. Flavors are bright, crisp, and clean w/ a defined banana spice character although not overdone . Well balanced and very refreshing with a slight lemon rind and peach pit bittering on the finish. Highly recommended.

Fin (9947) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2006
Bottle from Morrisons 12-05-06. Nice light golden colour very clear medium white frothy head. Wheaty in taste just a little bit of banana detected, but in truth didnt really grab me, I suppose it was reasonably refreshing but a bit too clinical for me.

From a 16.9oz. euro brown bottle with a freshness date on the bottom of the back label. Made a very good appearance, poured a clear pale golden with a large frothy, foamy white head that slowly settled into a thin foamy lacing, good carbonation. Had a cracker wheat malty and clove nose with whiffs of banana and fruit, pears and freshly sliced green apples. A crisp, carbonated smooth light bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Pear fruity and crackerish maltiness taste, crisp and sharp, followed by clove, light spice and subtle banana, a soft hoppiness towards the end and a dry, spicy wheat malty finish. An excellent Kristal Weizen from one of my favorite brewers, tasty and highly quaffable.

I guess Im just not that into Kristalls. Whats the point of brewing a wheat beer if youre going to filter out all the good yeasty, banana and coriander flavors. I have no idea why these beers are brewed as theyre like Kolschs with a twist of metallic flavor.

vyvvy (6078) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 20, 2006
Pours very light clear bright yellow with a white head that doesnt stay around very long. Clean crisp wheat aroma with some spice and acidity - the elements of citrus, but somehow it seems to break the two elements up. From the looks of it I would have guess light bodied, but it is more medium. Carbonation is just right. Light syrup feel as well, but not cloying. Taste is crisp with smooth malt with a light amount of spice and possibly banana, then a bit of yeast with a hint of dough and finishes with a spritzy hoppy taste. One of the most refreshing beers Ive had. Full of flavor, but very unobtrusive to the palate. This would be a great beer to have with food, especially lighter fare. Recommended beer.

The color was yellow and was real bubbly like most wheat beers. the aroma wasnt worth talking about. It seemed to have a slightly more bitter taste( not much ) and slightly more smooth. I think this is comparable to a paulaner hefe. I will buy this again.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 17, 2006
Tasted 17/04/2006. 500ml bottle from Rumbles, Wellington. Pours a pale-yellow gold with a solid pure-white head atop. Carbonation not as visible as I expected, loads of tiny bubbles but certainly not volcanic. Classic German weizen aroma of sweet bananas and wheat (expected spice didnt eventuate). Tart wheat with some background lolly-like malt in the mouth, up front. Fierce carbonation comes to the fore now, making the beers aromatics and flavour explode in the mouth - much like creaming soda. More tartness and some clove in the dry finish. Lightweight without being watery thin. Powdery residue remains on the palate, yeast attributes lingering. Not one Id drink everyday but this is a good refreshing ale that is very well made.

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - APR 12, 2006
Really cool, I loved it. Pours macro clear yellow, with a great head and the most amazing bubble trails rushing up and crashing into the bottom of the head. Aroma is hefe all the way, banan clove. Flavor is a bit weak, but still good. Banana, clove, bready and sweet.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2006
Clear watery yellow with a white head, lager like. Aroma had some whaet and a hint of banana. Taste was wheaty with a little banana again and some pepper with a thin finish.
