This beer pours a very bright yellow color with a large, but quickly dissipating, head. The aroma is the same as a weiss/wheat beer. Very grainy nose. The flavor is that of a wheat beer with some added spices for a little extra flavor. If you're a fan of weiss beers, you should try this one. (292 characters)

Clear, mid yellow with an amber hue. Thick, half inch white head that stayed for the duration. Strong lacing throughout. Very light fruity smell with a hint of spice. The taste was fruity with a definite clove sense that grew stronger. Very smooth and creamy texture that imparted a peppery bite after the cloves. Attractive packaging in amber glass. (350 characters)

This beer had a great fluffy and rocky head for a krystal. The color was a straw clear yellow. Nose was light and a little on the sweet side. The taste was nice and clean with some sweet wheaty flavor and mild floral backround. Very light and refreshing to the palate but had a good body for this style of beer. Every masss produced American beer could learn a lesson that a beer this light can have good delicate flavors and a richer mouth feel, not a watered down flavor. I could drink this all day long in the summer and dead of winter for that matter. (555 characters)

clear darker gold color, with a few very large flakes floating around. huge foamy head that stays. ample carbonation produces lots of foamy lace too. clean aroma of wheat malt and yeast. tastes of very clean wheat malt flavors, with the slight obligatory cloves and slight fruit. a little higher hop bitterness than regular hefe's. very easy drinking, making for high drinkability. i'm in the camp that likes their wheat brews thick and rich with lots of creamy smoothness. these krystal brews seem like the "light" beers of the wheat style. very good anyway! (559 characters)

M first stab at this style...seems like a dumbed down Hefe with less flavor..decent banana nose with some cloves...pours gold...pretty clear...nice foamy white lace that rims the glass...medium bodied with medium carbonation...not as jazzed up as some Hefe's..taste is banana mainly with a real clean, crisp finish....almost lagerish...(maybe it is, I'm not real versed on this style)...decent, but doesn't pack enough punch in the flavor department for my liking...I like it, but prefer a good Hefe.... (503 characters)

This beer poured a golden color and formed a nice huge sudsy white head that left some lace as it subsided. A bit of carbonation present. The aroma was of banana and clove. The flavor was of malt and some spice. The finish was a little bready yet sprite due in part to the carbonation. An interesting twist on the wheat beer style. I rather like it. (354 characters)

Making wheat beer more drinkable. A clear, bright pale colour with a foamy head that forms into a long-running lace. Banana-like nose with heavy bready (wheaty?) tones. More bananas in the taste along with clove and nutmeg. A nearly-light body with an active carbonation.

I dig this style because it removes the heavy, sickening yeast flavour form a perfectly good wheat beer. Try this out even if you do not like wheat brew, it just may change your mind. Cheers! (473 characters)

I like the hefe's a little better than the kristal versions. The appearance is very nice, yellow to golden color. The head was huge, bad pour maybe. Tasted nice enough, I had it both on tap and bottle. The bottle has a little more of the stale, sour taste to it. The tap version was fresher, refreshing, highly carbonated, but good. Decent yeast flavors. some hops to finish. It's the only non-macro carried at the place I had it, so I will definitly have it again. (465 characters)

Pillowy head, maintains an inch for minutes. A clear darker yellow, slight clove/ester sweet aroma. Very sweet malt flavors deep without being full-bodied. A little like candy corn candy at Halloween. A touch of hop at the back. Not complex. A couple of off tastes but the bottle was a good deal past its date mark (9/01)...devoid of annoying acidity but definitely sweet. I give a high drinkability mark and would like to try on tap. (441 characters)

1 Pt. Bottle.

Golden clean look with an airy white head. Musty malt smell. Light taste with hints of malt and yeast. It is refreshing, and would be great in warm weather. But does not overly impress me ... (211 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 16oz brown sleek euro style bottle with a drink before date clearly marked.

Appearance: Bright pale golden-yellow in colour with a dense rocky/frothy white head that hold its ground by staying around for the duration.

Smell: Mellow fruit like floral aroma ... sweet to the nose with hints of banana and ripe pineapple.

Taste: Medium in body, clean and crisp (high carbonation) with a bready wheat malt mouth feel. Minimal hop bitterness though more hop flavour (mildly spicy) is picked towards the end in the drying finish. Slight fruit flavour lingers with some sweetness to leave the mouth not totally dry.

Notes: We could see drinking a lot of this with some messy bbq and dirty rice with beans. A well crafted brew ... pleasing to almost any beer drinkers palate. (793 characters)

This wheat blew me away (although it didn't hurt that the bar knew how to serve it - in a tall glass bearing the brewery's name with a round slice of lemon floating on top). Fresh bread aroma. Smooooooth and easy to drink. (Almost a little too easy). (253 characters)
