A- Pours a clear golden yellow, with a large foamy white head and light lacing
S- A slight fruit smell and somewhat bready.
T/M- Taste starts out like a lager with a hops and malt, but finishes with a wheat aftertaste. The beer seems to be a little overly carbonated.
D- This was not bad; I have others from the brewery that was better. Would not turn it down, but would not go out and buy it again.

Bright golden colour with white head.

Distinct banana smell. Not many other flavours really shine through.

Spicy taste of banana and cloves. The taste is brought forward by the carbonation which I feel is just on the right level for this type of beer.

This was a pleasant surprise. I was not expecting such a highly drinkable beer and I can honestly say that I prefer this one over both the Erdinger dunkelweizen and their hefe.

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

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.

This is a nice beer. Not overpowering in any area. You can drink more then one of these. This beer would probably appeal to a lady who is not into the fuller flavor and cloudiness of many Weiss biers.

Pours a real nice head long lasting lightly tan colored head. Clear rich gold color to the beer itself. Soft wheat and malt smell, clean and light. Flavor light but fills the mouth, very balanced, wheat little fruit, a little body, not heavy, feels nice in the mouth. No after taste.

Refreshing.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 4

A: Crisp, golden color with a large head that dissipates quickly

S: Typical citrus and spice characteristics, with a bit of bread in the back.

T: Coriander, corn, and wheat

M: Thin and carbonated

D: Easily drinkable on a hot day, goes down easily

Overall: An easy and simple example of the style, but it tastes a bit too much of corn to seek out again.

500 ml bottle poured in a weissbier glass

Appearance is a dark clear orange with a puffy white head.

Smells of a sweet banana.

The taste is sweet with a smooth mouthfeel.

I like the Erdinger Weissbier Kristallklar. I could see myself dinking this one again.
