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.

4.21/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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

Appearance:
The beer pours a clear orange color with a slight brownish tinge. The head is white and frothy.

Smell:
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.

Taste:
Tarty. The tart seems to overwhelm all of the other taste and the yeast is barely noticeable.

Mouthfeel:
Biting carbonation and light bodied. A little too light bodied for my taste.

Overall:
A decent and certainly unique kristalweizen. I might get one if it's on tap but I gave the rest to my roommate.

Serving type: bottle

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.
