Served with a lemon, took some of the flavour away. Look is not that inviting, looks just like regular lager. Smell was almost completely covered because of the lemon. Taste was good, regular weißbier, nothing special. Smooth feeling in mouth.

Bottle pictured here poured into a weizen glass. A pale yellow amber with copious quick-breaking white bubbles. Aroma is the expected banana and clove elements, albeit much dialed down compared to unfiltered exemplars of the style. Nice old world wheat malt undercurrent. Flavor is similarly subtle yet reasonably complex, neutered clove pervades the proceedings but is trumped by sparkling pineapple, orange, and bubble gum notes. A pleasant dry wheat spiciness lurks in the background along with a light caramel sweetness. Light bodied and super fizzy. Well-crafted but leaves me wanting the full meal deal. There is really no need to filter this style and the relative lack of yeast character looms too large to ignore.

500ml Bottle at Paulanergarten, Bremen, Germany (€4.20):
Clear amber with a lot of bubbles. The heas is a good sized, foamy white one with good retention over the opening minutes & lots of lacing too.

Good balance of wheat, banana & cloves with bubblegum & touches of yeast. Some sweetness appears with grassy notes & citrus too.

Citrus with cloves & wheat initially, some banana & bubblegum come next with touches of orange. I got hints of spice & there was a nondescript mix of fruits towards the end.

Smooth & light-medium bodied, strong carbonation with some added fizz and a good balance throughout. Lively & one that proved an easy one to drink.

Both times I've had this beer I've found it quite enjoyable, but much like the majority of kristalweizen's that I've tried I'd probably go with the hefeweizen version if it was available, the only reason I didn't in this case was because of how easy the hefe is to get a hold on in the UK but I've yet to come across the kristalweizen version at home.
