Had on-tap at The Local Miami. Served in a Florida Beer Co. tapered pint.

A- Pours a semi-hazy amber color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and light swirls of surface foam. Thick and resilient lacing. But there are no crystals floating in the body like I remember seeing when I had Weihenstephaner's Kristalweizen way back in the day.

S- Yeasty, slightly effervescent aroma with notes of banana and bubble gum. Also has a slight medicinal quality.

T- Taste is even more medicinal and funky with notes of green olive, metal and a hint of banana. Pretty smooth overall but doesn't really harmonize like it should. Somewhat tart.

M- A bit tangy and semi-dry with medium carbonation and a solid wheat body.

O- Though I don't know what a true kristalweizen should taste like, this is a pretty enjoyable wheat beer with more good characteristics than bad.

Pours a honeyed orange with a big foamy head. It dissipates, but leaves some lace. The color of this is gorgeous.

Big banana and clove notes, the most I've smelled in a domestic effort at this or any traditional German style. Some yeasty sweet wheat in there as well.

Big Clove/banana/bubblegum note up front. Not thin or watery, but a little loose compared to German counterparts. Good grain and fruit, a light tart bite, some raw grain, honeyed notes, and moderate bitterness to close the deal.

Lighter bodied, a little thin.

Decent beer. I know people are bitching about this compared to last year's batch. I still dug it. I think it is definitely heavy on spice and fruit, but it still is a very nice beer.
