A: Kristallweissbier is straw in color and crystal clear, with a rocky white head capping off an onslaught of lacing.
S: Bouquet is somewhat saturnine in comparison to the kristal's cloudy kin. Some banana and clove are detected, but at levels much lower than I'm used to.
T: The flavor follows suit, with all parameters scaled back whe compared to the traditional hefe. This brew is semi-sweet, with notes of banana and clove, and maybe a touch of pineapple.
M: Body is light, with a touch of slickness that is quickly cut by the effervescent nature of this brew.
D: This is the only kristallweissbier in my store of 1100 brews, so I had to give it a try. not to discredit the style at all, but I think I will be sticking to my hefe's, as they have a much broader flavor profile, more vitamins, and a much better mouthfeel due to the yeast.
