look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured out of a bottle. Extremely carbonated, tough to pour without a big fluffy head that sticks around unless touched, then quickly shrinks. Pure white color on top, beautiful, but unfortunately matches with a Miller Lite- like color.

I am terrible at picking out smells but this smells slightly fruity and a bit unusual, in a good way.

Goes down so, so, so easy. Very drinkable. Smooth. No bitterness. Light beery flavor. One of my favorites for hot weather and grilled food.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

500ml bottle into a weizen glass.

Pours a crystal clear gold with a huge fluffy white head. Unfortunately, the head retention is quite poor and it also leaves not a trace of lacing as it fades.

Aroma of orange peel, lemon, and a hint of caramel and toast. A tiny bit of clove and bubblegum as well.

The flavors are somewhat muted but there are notes of orange and clove along with more caramel. Mouthfeel is very full and slick as is typical for the style but the finish is a bit of the sticky side. Nice lively carbonation.

Overall, a decent wheat beer but far from the best I have had. Nice to pick up every once and a while for a change of pace.

Best before 2/2014.

Pours a clear light gold with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, sugar, and slight fruity aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and slight fruit flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and somewhat medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is pretty lacking in traditional weizen aromas and flavors, even for the style.

look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A big two and half fingers of head on a hazy, straw colored body. Looks great.
The aroma is banana bread and orange, faint overall.
The taste is moderately bitter with a light fruit sweetness and a banana finish.
Crisp texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
This is a great kristalweizen.
