St. Arnold's brewery in Houston makes a pretty significant lineup of beers, and the Kristall Weizen is a solid, if unspectacular addition to the stable. One of my few beefs with St. Arnold's lies in the way they label their beers. The label on the Weizen is sloppy at best, with crooked and off-center body and neck labels. The neck label tells nothing of the beer within, content instead to relate the legend of St. Arnold's funeral where the mystical beer flagon never went dry until all of the mourners had been satisfied. Nice story for the website, but let's hear a little bit about the beer in the bottle. Good idea, boys?

The beer itself looks strictly average. Minimal head on the pour, and what does manifest doesn't hang around for long. The body is clear and straw-orange. No real nose to speak of, just a slight tinge of citrus.

The taste is good. A cracker-like malt body is the main feature, with enough hoppiness to balance things out. The taste is crisp and fresh. Citrus notes appear, along with a slight hint of peaches.

Decent mouthfeel, good drinkability. I don't usually go for the filtered wheats very often, as I typically prefer the cloudy and less tamed traditional weizens. Still, this is a good summertime beer for sitting out on the deck with. Pair with chicken or pork chops for a nice, light meal. Not bad, but shape up on that label, fellers.

3.1/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: It has yellow body with some cloudiness but not much. There was about a finger and a half of white head with average lacing.

Smell: The aroma was weak for this style. I did not notice much of anything other than grain.

Taste: The taste is very mellow. There are some very mild pepper, citrus and banana esters but not much else.

Mouthfeel: Super thin with a weak carbonation bite.

Overall: I thought this was a good mowing my lawn beer but not what I want for the price
