Kkkkkkkkrystalviezbeeeeeeeerrrr

The look itself : Extremely tall head, makes up 90% of the appearance. The head does diminish but not by very much. The body is a beautiful peachy pineapple glow, sediment floating around. Mostly hazy in appearance.

Aroma : peaches, apples, candy coated sugar dreams of dying wishes. I could smell this all day. Golden Graham's. Laffy Taffy. Oh man. Yet you still know its a beer. Umm, FIVE!

Flavor : compared to the smell it's rather bland. That being said it's still good, it has a dry champagne like taste, with faint apple, pear, and pear juice, a little wheat, and club soda. All of this is fairly 2-D in character.

Mouthfeel : light bodied, very crisp, very dry. Ends just like that, too.

Overall : this obviously is still an awesome beer. Weihenstephaner does no wrong! However I was rather disappointed in this beer. My least favorite from Weihenstephaner, but better than most beers.
