4.48/5 rDev +16.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
This is beautifully clear with a nice head and decent spots and streaks of lacing. Head has varies a bit with the pour and a vigorous one is well rewarded. Moving the score up from 3.5 to 4.0. Smell is stupendous with large amounts of banana, vanilla, clove, wheat malt, and bakery bread. The nose is so close to perfect to me that it almost pains me to score it as I do. Same with the taste. It follows the nose with clean rich flavors of juicy melon and banana, clove, cinnamon, light pepper, bubble gum, wheat malt and bread. Finish is very clean with light toasted grains and cinnamon to balance the superb banana clove spice notes. Feel is light with a spritzy carbonation and smooth overall swallow. This is one of the most drinkable beers I have ever had. At or near the top of the class. A great overall beer and one I am loading up on for the time being as this is one of this hefe head's dream beers. Just super and super drinkable. I'm in love!

3.5/5 rDev -8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a sam adams custom glass: color is copper to light amber, nearly transparent, good carbonation with some fine bubbles; head is off white to light tan, presents 1/2 inch thick then dissipates quickly to a ring along the glass edges, no lacing.
Smell is very subtle, feint bananas, light cloves, then tart, not strong but noticeable.
Taste is very tart, then i checked he best before date and it read 7/29/2013... flavors are not bad, but surprising for a brew that is supposed to a filtered wheat. Anyway, tart, some light vinegar, then light banana and clove notes.
Mouthfeel is sharp, biting, but not awful, good sour sharpness on the tongue, touch of vingear with lingering sweetness.
Overall, hard to judge this brew, i did not notice the 1 year old expiration on the 4 pack before purchasing and I've not had other kristalweizens of note. either way the flavor was good for an expired brew. i'll seek out a fresh version for comparison.
