Sampled at the International Great Beer Expo, Rock Hill, NY.

Poured a thick head, clear dark yellow. Minor lacing. Hoppy aroma. A very pleasant weisse, banana and molasses hints. Excellent mouthfeel.

A very good session beer. Will definitely order again.

.5 liter bottle with a best by date of 01/2012. My Dad brought this back for me from his recent trip to Germany.

A - Pours a pale straw, light-golden color with a billowy white head even from an easy pour. Well carbonated.

S - The nose is spicy cloves, muted banana notes, and slightly grainy.

T - I know this sounds uninformative and probably redundant, but the taste is like a very "clean" Hefeweizen. Light phenolic clove flavors, mild banana, and a dry yeasty finish.

M - Crisp light/medium bodied beer. Prickly carbonation.

D - Nice quality, low-alcohol, easy drinker for the summer time.

I've had plenty of Hefeweizen's in my day, but this is my first Kristalweizen. While this is a great brew, I still prefer the unfiltered "dirty" Hefe's. Glad to have tried this one.

Had this beer at the Chicago Brauhaus.

Poured from the bottle into a Bitburger pilsner glass.

The color was a nice cloudy orange with a nice two fingers of foamy white head and some slight lacing on the glass.

The smell is a nice wheaty flavor. Some solid fruit flavor is making the nose seem nice and light. Some banana and a touch of pear. Some nice malty sweetness is there as well.

The taste was a bit more banana and had a good clove flavor that had me thinking of some earthy flavor. The malt is there for a while and it makes this beer a bit sweet then leads into a mild hop finish that stays just sec and then is gone.

The feel of this beer is pretty smooth and really enjoyable. It has a way of going down before you really notice it is done. It has just the right amount of aftertaste then lets go like it wasn't even there. It is really refreshing and was my favorite beer of the night.

Pours crystal clear gold with a huge lasting head.
Nose shows grassy and floral European hops with lots of doughy wheat and some soft spicy phenols.
Flavours include light fruit (pears and white grapes) and doughy wheat. Finishes with a hint of lemon and a very mild bitterness.
Carbonation is nice and high. Body seems a little watery.
