3.75/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Swirled the yeas and got a thick looking orange to orange amber. Looked like a tropical fruit punch. white head of 2 fingers that receded quickly leaving barely any lacing. On the second pour, the head war more massive. % fingers in my tall Schneider Weisse glass. It was considerably less slow to fall as well. Becoming more chunky and leaving decent lacing.

Toasted malt with a hint of cherry and banana. On the 2nd pour, the initial aroma was of bubblegum and cloves were more apparent.

Banana and cherry are both more evident on the tongue. Faint clove with a lemony tartness typical of the wheat malt. Cloves become bolder in the end.

Medium full in body. Pretty smooth with surprising warmth. Moderately sticky and a bit drying.

A very good summer brew. Refreshing, with plenty going on to maintain one's interest. I wouldn't hesitate to try it again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a clear golden with a rocky head. Good retention.

Aroma is wheat beer like. Yeasty, some notes of citrus, banana.

Taste is wheat beer like...yeasty and citrusy and banana.

Mouthfeel is okay. I think its too watered down. Taste is fine, but the finish makes it have the consistency of water. Even though wheats are supposed to be light, they shouldn't be this thin. Flavor profile is good, though, and it still delivers. Drinkable.

Appearance: light golden amber, thin Lacey head, and quite clear for this filtered wheat.

Smell: yeast with hints of banana, honey, and clove

Taste: wheat malty, slight citrus

Drinkability is good. The body is medium with a little carbonation. I had this in a bottle as well poured into a pint glass.

3.33/5  rDev -10%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured from draft into pint glass. A single
finger head with active carbonation. A light
maize color. Not a cloud in the sky for this
transparent brew.

S: Virtually odorless save for a the slightest
hints of alcohol/malt.

T: Not as candy and bananas as I had expected
from reading other reviews and basic
expectations of the style. There is a herbal
taste on the back of the tongue and the
requisite bananas and sweetness are present
but not overly so.

M/D: This is a thin beer with little body and
comes in a little short on overall
character. I will be much more prone to
choose a good hefe or wit over this version
of the krystal.

The liquid is effervescent and clear apricot in color. The off-white head is decent in size, but doesn't stay as long I as would have liked.

The nose is pretty subdued, but I guess that's okay for the style. Just a light whiff of phenols, mostly clove-like.

There is clove is the flavor as well, but it's not as dominate as the nose might lead you to believe. There is a cornucopia of fruit flavors as well, but none are over-powering or even particularly strong. Apple, banana, pear, grapefruit...it's sweet and bitter at the same time. However, true to style, the finish is quite crisp and clean.

The body is medium-light and bubbly throughout.

This is my first of the style, so I'm no expert, but I definitely enjoyed this beer. To my inexperienced palate, this almost seemed like a hopped up hefeweizen. Nice.

3.2/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A - Pours a slighly hazy (almost clear), translucent yellowish color. White head has minimal rentntion.

S - Smells of yeast, clean scent, and fresh bread dough.

T - Faint hints of banna, clove, phenols... lots of yeast.

M - Smooth, moderate mouthfeel. Typlcal for the style.

D - Overall this beer lack complexity and depth. It doesn't really do anything for more. It's a decent session beer, but even falls chort of my standard for that purpose.

3.96/5  rDev +7%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A: Golden, crystal clear, no head/lacing.

S: Citrus, lemon, floral, pine, sweet smell. Overall a nice strong aroma that was quite pleasant.

M: Medium to light bodied, low carbonation.

T: More malty then bitter, allowing for sweetness of the malt to come through. Tastes include caramel, wheat, slight grapefruit and pine.

O: A solid brew that is VERY drinkable, especially in the hot summer months. With the little to no bitterness, makes for a sweeter beer. Definitely would recommend this to others, and thanks Wendell for the delivery!!
