look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours light brown with a one finger off white head that dissipates quickly leaving a white ring around the glass

Nose has bright malt and wheat notes. Bananas Clove and spice phenols and some plum like dark fruits as well.

Malt is more subtle in the taste but alot of the fruit esters are noticeable. Relatively light conpared to the smell.

High carbonation works well with the light refreshing feel. The carbonation Also gives it a soft feel which helps it from being to watery.

Really refreshing and drinkable, perfect pair for this sticky muggy summer night.

12 oz bottle served in a New Glarus taster and flute. Split with the wifey for dinner.

A: Pours a brownish color, clear and light, with a white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some splotchy lace down the glass.

S: Big yeasty notes up front. Clove and banana. Sweet bread with some cracked wheat as well.

T: Same as the nose. Lots of yeasty esters, clove and banana, with some backing wheat flavors. Sweet malts as well. Light citrus note, but the malts, wheat and yeast are the stars of the show.

M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Sweet finish.

O: A nice beer. My first true Kristalweizen. Nice flavors all around. Well balanced.

Pours a nice, soapy head. Great hefe aroma of banana and clove. AMAZING burnt sienna color. Starts with sweet malt and notes of banana and clove. Hops are definitely taking a back seat as the bready malt builds up to make for a banana bread finish.

Perfect. Sublime. I could drink this all day, every day. When this was out (this is my last bottle), I bought it EVERY time I got a chance. This redefines Kristalweizens for me. NOW I love them as much (or more) than a hefeweizen.
