Picked this up at the Oak Barrel in Hagerstown. Decent looking beer that lives up to the Kristall, pristine looking. Not much to offer to the nose but very tasty, not special but tasty and very smooth. Overall a pretty strong offering that I will gladly have again but not one I will be Jonesing for.

Apple-y blonde color with a fluff of three fingers of head. Excellent head retention in the glass. Looks good.

Stale bread, wheat and crusts, hint of lemon, light banana, and crabapple. Lots of German musty qualities, exemplary of a not-so-fresh bottle. Label says she's good til June. Erdinger never knocks it out of park for me, anyway. Pedestrian kristalweizen nose.

Custardy yeast, wheat grain, lost citrus notes, and a mild banana-esque finish. Somewhat grassy with a spiciness, like white pepper, in the backend; mixing cream and burning carbonation, along the way. Not a whole lot going on. Tastes like a good base beer for a summer shandy.

A - Pale yellow colouring, similar to a lager.

S - Grass like sweet fragrance.

T - Sweet, decent amount of wheat coming through on it.

M - Fizzy, maybe a little harsh on the tongue.

O - A decent beer in the Erdinger range but not one of the best. Drinkable, enjoyable but I find it somewhat uninteresting.

Best by March 2014

Pours a golden straw color with a slight haze to it, good sized white head, fades at a moderate pace with hardly any lacing.

Smell has a sweet malt aroma, slightly grassy notes.

Taste starts out with a sweet malt flavor with hints of banana fruitiness, a decent grassy like bitterness follows, carbonation is on the high side but helps lend a dry finish necessary for this beer.
