4.43/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Extremely tall, foamy, long-lasting head. Clear golden body. Bottle foamed over as soon as I opened the bottle, and was very difficult to pour even though I did not shake it.

Smell - Light and refreshing floral banana smell.

Taste - Very light and springy with refreshing subdued fruit complexity. Balanced spice, and subtle alcohol.

Mouthfeel - Spritey spice feel, goes down very smooth.

Drinkability - Could drink this all night. Not heavy, and complex enough to keep me coming back for more.

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

Appearance is a golden straw color that's cloudy with a one finger white head.
Aroma is yeast rolls and slight banana and spice.
Flavor is bready, yeasty, some slight banana. Really balanced. Pretty bitter.
Mouthfeel is crisp and medium with a lingering bitterness that sets s beer apart.
Reminds me of vitus but with a dominant lingering bitter flavor.

Kristall Weissbier pours a golden color with a very very small lacing head, with lots of bubbles. There is a earthy and meaty aroma. The taste has a nice strong but pale sweet malt backbone with some smoked meat flavors, and some creamy wheat like notes. Good feel, and nice strong flavors. Overall its interesting, strong almost meat like flavor, crisp and easy to drink.
