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.

Deep gold, huge white head steadily shrinks to rich, foamy ring, some lace.

Aroma is lots of fruity grain, apple, light yeasty bread dough, light herb and hint of mineral.

Taste is light, crisp fruity grain, dough, apple, apple peel, hints of herb, lemon and mineral – all very light and ultimately mostly dominated by mineral, apple and hint of grassy citrus, with the finish being mostly mineral and apple. It has a nice, zesty feel, is light and crisp. Character is light and rather simple, but it’s very pleasant and drinkable, with enough body and character to keep it going.

Served in a Franziskaner glass at 10.1°C (approx 50°F)

A: Crystal clear (as the name suggests), yellow liquid. You can see right through it. Love the color! Very fluffy white head, which lasts the entire review and longer. Beautiful!

S: Malted wheat, yeast, banana and perhaps some mandarin orange. Much more like a Hefe than a Kristall, but still good.

T: A little like a lager actually. Wheat malt, little hop aroma and VERY sweet. Almost like vanilla. Actually, there's a lot of vanilla aromas in this. Nice, but a bit too much on the sweeter side than expected.

M: The head makes it thick, creamy and fluffy, however the body is quite light (maybe medium). Once again, a bit too sweet

D: Very easily drinkable, even flow of CO2 and a smooth and thirst quenching satisfaction. Perfect summer brew
