Served in a Trooper shaker pint glass.

Much like the dunkelweizen, it has taken me far too long to try this stuff. Again, let's do it. It pours a clear brass topped by over a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light orange zest, clove, mild banana, and a twinge of caramel. The taste brings in more of the same, with the caramel character mostly morphing into one of cracked wheat. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a rather tasty and enjoyable kristalweizen, no surprise given the caliber of the brewer. Good times.

Massive white foamy head - we're off to a great start! Crystal clear (duh) and golden with great constant effervescence. The only less that 4+ attribute was the smell, only because it seemed a little muted with just a fraction of the banana clove coming through, and didn't really pick up while drinking. Taste was thoroughly superb. There's the banana, clove and wheat-y backbone I was craving. All perfectly balanced and way too drinkable. These things could disappear within seconds of pouring. Body matched the clean clear visual with a light body but still not overly thin. Finish was perhaps a touch on the dry side absent of any aftertaste.
