4.01/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Best before: 29JUL2013
A: Slightly hazy golden-amber-yellow with a bright white, fizzy, bubbly head that fades quickly and leaves behind very little lace or retention. Just liquid after a minute or so.
S: Plenty of lightly toasted malt and some clove and such that you get from a Hefe. Some barny aromas.
T: Similar to the nose. Lots of delicious malt with a nice bite and overall flavor you'd expect from the style.
M: Super smooth, good body, and proper carbonation.
O: I wish I was able to try this fresh rather than so close to the best by date but it was very tasty nonetheless. I'd drink it again.

Appearance: Quite clear. Darker than I expected, but nice orange tones to the color.
Smell: Fruity esters for sure. Bananas.
Taste: Surprisingly sour! Caught me off guard at first as the sour flavors dominate the typical smooth and fruity wheat profile. But it's well balanced with the rest of the beer - by no means an intense sour ale. The play of the sour flavors with the yeast keeps the beer crisp and interesting throughout. Quite a unique and interesting take.
Overall, I appreciate the unique spin (though I don't really know what to expect from a Kristalweizen) on a summer beer to make a refreshing-but-intriguing beverage.

3.69/5 rDev -3.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
The beer pours a clear orange color with a slight brownish tinge. The head is white and frothy.
A strong scent of clove and banana yest with hints of tartness. There are also some sugar notes as well to the point where it smells bubble gummy.
Tarty. The tart seems to overwhelm all of the other taste and the yeast is barely noticeable.
Biting carbonation and light bodied. A little too light bodied for my taste.
A decent and certainly unique kristalweizen. I might get one if it's on tap but I gave the rest to my roommate.

On tap in an Imperial pint glass (sic).
A- The dimly lit pub afforded me this view; a golden orange color with brilliant highlights and an unfiltered(?) look. The barkeep filled the glass to the rim resulting in a slim whitehead that left some lacing.
S- Lemon, banana, spice, some sour yeast. Subtle notes of fruit and spice, nothing too forward.
T- Like the aromas with a some unexpected sweetness.
M- Light and refreshing, good carbonation. Tart and sour as it warms.
O- This was new to me and I enjoyed it.
Serving type: on-tap

16oz can poured into a a weizen glass. Best before July 23, 2013.
A: Pours a hazy golden orange with a decent off white head. The head sticks around for a minute or two, not much lacing on the glass. Lots of visible carbonation visible in the body.
S: Loads of banana yeastiness up front. Good german hefe characteristic. Pale malts make up the backbone. Hint of tartness in there as well.
T: Quite a tasty and refreshing summer flavor. The wheat comes through nice and strong but there is also a very tasty sour note to this as well. Reminds me of a berliner weiss beer mixed with a hefe.
M: Light body that feels a touch thin. Not as full as some of the other wheat beers out there but the lightness gives it high sessionability. Crisp mouthfeel that is very refreshing.
Overall I am very impressed with this brew, was not expecting that light sour taste. Give this one a go, after having two I grabbed two more 4-packs.
