Half litter bottle poured into tulip glass-clear wheat color with good 2 finger head with and lacing going all the way to the bottom of the glass; delicate smell of yeast, malt and light banana- very pleasant taste of same with smooth feel and perfect carbonation with all those tiny bubbles

Smelled of soapy dishes. Tastes of banana and clove. Very crisp

I love hefs and this beer is everything I'm looking for in an easy drinking beer. It goes down smooth, crisp, and clean. Unlike many light beers, though, there is a defined, full-bodied wheat flavor, with a touch of banana sweetness in the background and no hops to speak of. An absolutely perfect beer for drinking a few pints outside in the warmth of the spring or summertime. It went great with the rich German food I paired it with, but it could go just as easily with something as light as a tuna sandwich. It's beers like this that make me proud of my Bavarian heritage!

Well I have to admit that this is probably my favorite beer just for drinking on a hot ad sunny day....always crisp, clean and refreshing, Kristallweiss never disappoints....what I really love about this beer is the feel....it stays perfectly carbonated til the last drop. Those 4 tiny rows of tiny bubbles constantly rising in the glass...it's something to behold. How do the Germans manage that? Nobody carbonates like the Germans.....
