I've been loving this beer for the past week now and have decided to give it a proper review. What I've learned though is that this beer needs some time to breathe and/or warm a bit before diving in, as I've had one fresh out of the fridge the other day and it was missing a ton of the flavors I loved about this beer.
For a kristalweizen there is a good deal of haze, bright white fluffy head. Spicy and yeasty nose with lots of banana. Noticeable hop presence for a wheat beer.
Wonderfully creamy mouthfeel. Incredibly smooth. Banana and bubblegum up front. Slick mouthfeel on the sides of the tongue. Slightly buttery toasted character on the mid palate. Finishes with a touch of pepper and extremely clean. It's impressive how such a full bodied beer can be so incredibly refreshing as well. The body really makes this beer what it is. The flavors are all balanced extremely well too. Classic weizen flavors compliment each other, none of which are too overpowering, and being held together by the rich body.
The flavors linger slightly on the finish reminding you how good this beer is making you take another sip.
Some medicinal flavors linger somewhere underneath it all but really dont take away from the beer at all. Top notch. Not to mention, this beer doesnt taste too shabby straight out of the can either making it great for places bottles cant go.
One of the best if not the best wheat beer I've ever had.

Picked up a can of this yesterday from a local bottle shop, cracked it open and immediately smelled a strong urine odor along with rotten bananas, For some reason I went on to actually taste this abomination of beer, it was like Donkey Kong went on a banana binge and the gave me a golden shower the next morning. Putrid bananas and strong dark urine is all I can think of....but I looked at the bottom of the can once I was done muscling through this beer, since I dont believe in drain pours, and it was canned in July of 2013...7 months ago, I hope thats the problem. If not, I am seriously surprised that this crap came from 6 point
