4.03/5  rDev 0%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Pours a golden yellow with exceptional clarity and a constant stream of bubbles rising from the etched bottom. The head was a nice, foamy white that retained excellently and left a decent amount of lacing behind. The nose hit with a familiar clove and banana scent, reminiscent of the hefeweisen style. The taste was also full of clove with a hint of banana, along with a sweet, yeasty, biscuity flavor that followed. The alcohol comes out at the end of the sip and sits in your mouth, however it doesn't burn (low ABV, here), it's just noticeable. Slight bubblegum-like sweetness goes hand in hand with the malts as well. Unlike many hefes, however, I feel the taste is "thin" and somewhat lacking, with an aftertaste that is just a bit too watery. The body is fairly thin and very crisp with a heavy does of carbonation (once again, common to this style).

Very nice hefeweisen. Easy to drink, sweet, and overall tasty. Slightly lacking in flavor compared to other hefes out there (including more by Weihenstephaner), but good nonetheless.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Golden color with a white foam that retains well.

S - More of a floral scent than the hefeweisen. Still has the smell of cloves, and the banana smell is more faint.

T - Crisp clean taste. Very sharp taste of noble hops and grain. Very raw flavoring.

M - Very sessionable. Just a nicely rich german beer that is light on the palate.

O - Not a style I'd go after again, but this was enjoyable. I'm still preferential to the Hefe.

Bottle, One Pint, 0.9 fl. Oz.

Clear, golden color. Few bubble rising. Thick bright white head.

Lots of banana in the nose, some cloves, a little citrus, bready wheat.

Banana up front along with sweet bready malts. Cloves comes thought the taste, I get some hint of apples, raw cookie dough, slight touch of lemony towards the finish. Body is almost creamy, very soft carbonation.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Gushing carbonation on opening. Pale straw colour. Large, finely-textured white head is retentive and leaves a patchy lace. Wheat cracker aroma with hints of lemon and banana. Flavours of sweet white bread, clove, and banana. Light-bodied and heavily carbonated. Carbonation, though abundant, is soft and very finely textured. I prefer the richer mouthfeel and stronger flavours in the regular weiss, but this still succeeds on its own merits.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Pilsener glass. Like the name says, crystal clear. A pale straw/yellow color with a tornado of carbonation. The carbonation looks like wisps of smoke coming up from the tapered bottom of the glass. A huge hand width of shaving cream white head on top that stands on the beer due to the neverending carbonation. That's a good lookin' beer. The aroma coming off of the beer is very similar to the Hefeweizen. Some wheat, banana and bubble gum. Bubble gum/banana flavors, the taste is similar to a Hefe with a little bit more honey malt and grassy hop flavor. Feel is very light and spicy from the carbonation. There is a big difference in the feel. The smoothness of an unfiltered wheat beer is not there. This makes the beer kind of thin. Definitely a tasty, well-crafted beer. I'll be having more of this during the many German Beer fests in the coming months. Prost!

3.58/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a bright golden color with a large frothy head, plentiful carbonation

S: Bready, a bit tart, lemony, grassy

T: Bready, more so than in the smell, mild sweetness, granny smith apple, a bit spicy. Well carbonated, light-bodied, the apparent sweetness gives way to a little bit of bitterness/spicyness in the finish and the aftertaste lasts for only a few seconds.

A good job of filtering the beer to make it look nice while keeping the important flavors in the beer. While I would not make it a habit to drink this beer because I prefer traditional hefeweizens, this is a nice beer in its own right and is a good alternative to a hefeweizen if someone prefers a crisper-tasting and cleaner-looking beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours clear golden with a large white head and plentiful rising tiny bubbles from the bottom of the glass. The head dissipates slowly. The beer smells banana and clove forward, though not as intensely as it is for their hefeweizen. It smells cleaner and the wheat malt presence is bready in the nose. the taste follows the nose. The wheat and barley malts bring a bready taste. The clove provides spicy balance and the banana flavor is also present. Both are milder than in the hefeweizen, allowing the malt profile to shine. This is expected for the style. The body is light with strong carbonation. The finish is smooth. The drinkability is very high. This is an excellent, refreshing beer.

4.18/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Look (4/5) – Pours a very light straw colour. Head is decent: rose well of a standard pour; soapy texture; very white; and, falls a bit quickly to a cap without any real lacing. Clarity is brilliant. There’s some really nice visible carbonation.

Smell (4/5) – Some decent wheat graininess provides a nice background. The standard weizen yeast flavours of banana and cloves jump out at me right away. The balance between them is ideal; I like a bit more clove than banana. There’s also a note in there that I would describe as a bit sulphur-like, it’s not hugely strong and blends very nicely with the flavours. No hops and no alcohol notes are noticeable.

Taste (4.5/5) – Similar to the nose. The grain bill boasts some nice wheat graininess as well as a bit of very light melanoidins (I’d guess at a Munich pilsner malt with maybe there was some light Vienna/Munich malt included in the grist here). The flavours of banana and cloves are dominant, but they’re milder and lighter than you get in a hefe. No hop flavour, hop bitterness is medium-light. The sulphur-like notes were not very strong on the palate.

Feel (3.5/5) – Medium-light body (the malty sweetness of it gave it a slightly more substantial flavour) and high carbonation. Pretty standard fair for the style, but good.

I’m really much more familiar with hefeweizens than I am with krystalweizens, but this was a great example. Whereas a hefe is somewhat more substantial in both flavour and body due to the suspended yeast, I found that this one was a lot lighter and went down much smoother. This is a great summer brew is served cool enough. I still prefer the hefe that these guys make.

This beer pours with a four finger head that lasts and leaves lacing on the glass. Pale yellow in colour and very bubbly. Smells of cloves, bananas, wheat, citrus, and sugar. Tastes just as it smells. Moderate banana, cloves, citrus, wheat and a touch of ginger. Mouthfeel is a tad watery, dry and a bit champagne like. A nice session ale.

Overall: Bold aroma, lighter taste. A bit overcarbonated, which ends up stinging the tongue and covering the taste a bit.

reviewed from notes taken 6/21/12.

500ml bottle poured into weizen glass.

Appearance: clear and brilliant golden yellow bodied beer with a huge white head. Lots of lacing clings to the glass as the head slowely drops.

Smell: Sweet smelling bready and yeasty notes, bananas, lemons, and just hint of clove.

Taste: Just like the nose. Its starts of with bananas, and bready wheat malts. Hint of lemons and cloves. Good taste!

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderately high carbonation. This beer is really drinkable while having alot of nice flavors! Carbonation makes this beer crisp, clean, and refreshing while still remaining a delicate beer. The carbonation is fantastic helping to carries the flavors of the beer!

Overall: I am new to Kristalwiezen beer style and this is a really enjoyable brew! Had this beer with lunch at a german restaurant the beer was pared with a sausage sampler platter. Fantastic pairing; for a moment I felt like I was in Germany.

500 mL bottle from the LCBO; best before Feb 15 2013. I have never reviewed an authentic kristalweizen before, as I generally prefer unfiltered wheat beers (which are plenty tasty, and easier to find anyways). Given the brewer though, I have pretty high hopes for this stuff.

This beer pours a translucent golden straw-yellow colour, and is adorned with a two finger crown of silky, dense, resilient white head. It sticks around a good long while, and coats the glass with a ring of sticky lacing as it (very gradually) recedes. Great aroma that does not seem to have been detrimentally affected by the filtration. Its strong yeasty presence, bready wheat malt backbone, banana, lemon zest and light clove spice are highly reminiscent of their standard hefe, and equally enticing. Kind of a spicy banana bread feel.

And yes, it tastes as good as that sounds. Fairly yeasty with lots of fruity notes - banana by far the most dominant, but with definite hints of citrus and mild brown pear sweetness. The wheat malt shines brightly through these complementary flavours; its sweet, bready goodness likely benefiting from the much cleaner mouthfeel of this (compared to the hefe). Mildly reminiscent of bubble gum. The subdued peppery clove spiciness hides in the shadows until finally coming forward in the finish, mingling with some pale malt sweetness and yeast. Relatively clean finish without much linger. On the light side of medium-bodied, with prickly carbonation that helps cut through the light chew (which becomes even lighter after the head is spent). Ridiculously drinkable, and probably a good session option too.

I don't really have anything else to compare this to, having never tried any other filtered wheat ales (besides a few American-style pale ones, which probably soured me on the whole 'filtered wheat beer' thing), but to my admittedly inexperienced palate this is a superb beer all around.

Final Grade: 4.15, an excellent A-. Weihenstephaner Kristallweissbier combines the delicious, complex flavour profile of their flagship hefeweizen with the clean, crisp drinkability of a German pale lager - a fabulous combination. If push came to shove I'd probably prefer Weihenstephaner's regular hefe during much of the year - but in the heat of summer, this stuff's fresh, crisp mouthfeel must earn it some strong consideration. Definitely worth a try - if not a must-have.

16.9oz bottle served in a weizen glass.

pours a bell-clear clear golden yellow tone while yielding a massive 3"+ frothy white head. moderate retention, leaves behind some lacing in patches. nose is very similar to the weihenstephaner hefeweizen, just a more subdued version - which is just as expected. soft notes of banana, malt, and a bit of clove. understated for sure.

taste is nice. banana, clove, grainy malt. light bodied mouthfeel with lively carbonation.

overall i'm enjoying the hell out of this beer. maybe it's because i haven't had one in a few days and so my perception is distorted, maybe it's because i was just in the mood for a lighter beer, or maybe it's simply because this is simply a great brew. (or some combination thereof.) but there's a certain 'the whole being more than the sum of its parts' quality to it. drinks very easily. perfect for those occasions where you're in the mood for something lighter, crisper, more refreshing... and yet still very flavorful.

500ml bottle poured into a Weizen glass. ABV marked at 5.4%.

A - Poured a light clear golden yellow with a huge bubbly head. Head reduced to a steady foamy layer. Plenty of active carbonation. Decent lacing.

S - Bananas, bread, some spiciness, hint of citrus.

T - Malts upfront, tangy fruitiness in the middle, mild herbal bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium body, slick, medium carbonation, Crisp finish.

O - The aroma & flavour is more muted than the Hefeweizen. I love wheat beers but filtering it seems to take away some of it's unique characteristics. Despite that, this one still has plenty of flavour and is certainly quite drinkable on a hot summer's day.

Full disclosure: I don't get Kristalweizen. I don't understand the point of it. A clean refreshing summer take on... the most refreshing style of beer out there? I avoid them. I do not, however, avoid Weihenstephan products so that put me in a bit of a pickle.

Pours a clear bright cold. Very lively, loads of carbonation.

Aroma of light fruits, mainly pear. Lacks the spice of a hefe.

Pear carries through to the taste. Very light on banana and clove, heavy on apple and pear. Slight yeastiness in the finish.

Marked high, because it's the best of the style I've had, but still not a fan.

This Kristalweizen pours a crystal clear pale yellow to golden color with a towering, foaming white head that takes it's time in settling, growing more and more chunky as it descends, and leaving plenty of sticky, clinging lace.

The aroma is of banana, huge cloves, and tart citrus.

The taste is light on the banana and citrus, and heavy on the cloves and alcohol.

Moderat in feel, but almost flat. No carbonation to speak of.

The first time I tried this beer, it was spectacular. I sampled it with my dinner at the Matterhorn Restaurant at Wohlfart Haus (a dinner theater) in Wytheville, VA. It was an awesome accompaniment to my Rhineland Wursts; grilled Knockwurst & Bratwurst atop sauerkraut, grilled peppers & onions. Unfortunately, they were out of German potato salad, but they substituted some very good sweet potato fries.

This beer was good, but a far cry from what I remembered. Judging by the date code of 4151, it was past it's prime. The first number, "4" indicates day of month in conjunction with the second two numbers, "15" which indicate the week of the year, and the last number "1" indicates the year, so the born on date is April 14, 2011. Weihenstephaners are said to have a shelf life of 12 months.

4.65/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Clear pale close to sickly yellow colour but it makes up for it with ample carbonation and two fingers of solid head that produced ample lace and retained decently, but needed a little more push to make 5.

Smell: I've experienced unfiltered, full on hefe's that have a weaker nose then this, so top marks here. Banana up front with cloves, wheat malt and orange peel in the background. Didn't need a lot of warming to come out either. Not overpowering and something that entices you to drink.

Taste: Starts with mild wheat malt with a slight banana backing that slowly takes over as spicier cloves and fruity yeast come forward as a mild dusting of herbal hops finishes us off, although sometimes those hops fall a bit lame and offer a slight seltzer tone which stops it short of a perfect score.

Mouthfeel: Clean and crisp with excellent carbonation, superb transitioning, a nice light wheat, banana and clove aftertaste that doesn't get out of control. There's nothing bad that I can say.

Drinkability: Refreshing in extreme, way too easy to put down although surprisingly heavier then you'd think in your stomach. Part of that I think is the high carbonation, but part of it is just that's it's not as light that the crispness would have you believe. Still, very few complaints here.

Final Thoughts: Weihenstephaner markets itself as the world's oldest continuously operating brewery, which may in fact be true. Regardless of that though, it is easily one of the best brewery's around. This stuff is an incredible beer and practically the perfect example of the Kristalweizen. This is another exceptional beer brewed by the undisputed kings of Wheat beer.

Bottle poured into a Weizen glass.
Bottle date coded 4341 on back, not sure what it means.
An aggressive pour.

A- Pours an extremely clear golden yellow color with a sizable amount of thick, frothy, foamy, white head that lingers a while and doesn't leave much of any lacing on the glass. It's fascinating how clear it is.

S- Lot of banana mixed with some spicy cloves. Pretty much the same as a Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier, but slightly more subdued. Yeasty.

T- Again, very close to the Hefe. Tastes a little "watered down" though. Crisp, and refreshing. The wheat smoothness makes it an easy drinker.

M- Light bodied. Medium carbonation.

O- I am surprised by how close the Hefeweissbier and the Kristallweizen are. The Kristallweizen seems more light and crisp than the Hefe, although both are solid beers. Another one well done from Weihenstephaner.

Poured into a hefeweizen glass.

Light golden in colour, kristal clear, and with a billowing fluffy head that quickly receded into a patchy ring. Some lacing, a bit more when agitated a little.

Nose is banana, mild clove, wheat malt, herbal and spicy hops, a few other weizen goodies.

An enjoyable brew, light and refreshing. All the usual suspects of a hefeweizen, but softer and crisper. The hops have a herbal quality to them. Neither too sweet nor too spicy.

Soft feel, mild carbonation, thinner bodied than the hefe version. Ludicrously easy to drink.

I still prefer the classic hefeweizen, but this was an enjoyable summer brew. I've never understood kristalweizens, but now I can certainly understand the appeal. Will be back for some of these during the hottest days of the summer.

I tried this beer on May 30, 2012 after purchasing from the King and Spadina LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent light gold colour with a generous bubbly snow white head that quickly dissipated. The aroma was mild wheat, some hops, and some spiciness. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and medium carbonation. The flavour was sweet wheat malt, some spiciness and some fruit tones in the mix.
