I often never understood the kristall wheat style, but this is an exception, more to it than most german kristall wheats, hints of honey, apricot and banana, the best kristall wheat i've tried.

Had a .5L bottle in Germany. It's crisp and clean, almost like a kolsch, or low bitterness pilsner. There's still a soft, bready aroma with a peppery, clove edge. There's a hint of banana mixed in too, and as you might expect, this tastes like a cleaned up Schneider hefe. A slightly sweet, bready malt flavor rolls over the tongue, but there's a drier finish. This beer seems a little more crisp and refreshing. I'd prefer Schneider Original, but this was a pleasant change of pace while traveling.

L: clear golden yellow color, gives of a good amount of head when i pour it, some lacings on the glass

S: strong wheat aroma, with hay, banana, and hints of spices like corriander,cloves and pepper

T&F: Gives of a fresh start, wheat banana and spices, much as in the aroma, fruity finishing.the flavours are not as strong as the aroma.honestly i think it get a little to watery, and not much of a aftertaste. But it is easy drinkable and i had no problem enjoy it, but i would like a little more flavour.

O: A good beer, but nothing extraordinary. easy to drink and i enjoyed it, But as i would prefer a little more flavour that i think this beer lacked

For me, the Original leaves a sour after taste which puts me off drinking any more.
This however is definitely much better. As others have said, it's crisp and clean but still tastes great. The carbonation is bit much but overall this is still one of my favourite beers.

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Beautiful crystal clear straw yellow pour with a three finger foamy pure white head with decent retention and lacing. The nose is typical Weizen, but much more subtle. Hints of grass, yeast, wheat, straw, cloves, and just a touch of banana and bubblegum. The taste follows suit with lots of grass along with hints of clove, banana bread, wheat, yeast, lemon, and subtle bubblegum. The mouthfeel is light bodied, crisp, subtly sweet, with a nice dry finish. Overall, a nice refreshing alternative to the normal Hefeweizen.

A: Clear filtered, looks like ginger ale with a moderate amount of fine bubbles, and one finger of white head that looks like a slice of white bread sitting on top. It fades moderately fast.

S: Bananas, cloves, a very 'Belgian pale ale' like yeasty scent reminiscent of blue cheese bite, without the stink. Very mild and gentle.

T: Extremely mild and dare I say watery. It is watery, which surprises me from this company. However, the Belgian type yeast I mentioned, as well as a lovely gentle banana come out and are clearly presented before each fades, then theres a watery, very American Adjunct lager like watery taste that kicks in and fades. Really hides the alcohol. A nice yeastiness that is doughy, like a Miller Lite, but this fades too.

M: Light watery body, medium high ginger ale like carbonation leaves it almost foamy in the mouth.

O: I like beers a lot and so like to try new ones, this isn’t one I would choose again, but really it is from a great company. The bottle is cool, I like their style. If you can’t stand the yeast floating in your beer, you could try this, but its not as good as Weihenstephaner’s Kristall.

Standard German brown half liter bottle and the usual blue, silver and white Schneider Weisse label, with "Kristall" written in script at the bottom. Purity law applies, of course. Best before 5/9/04, I opened it on 5/29/04.

Poured a clear and very bubbly gold under a 1.5 finger white head with some body and good staying power. I didn't see much lace, though. The nose was strong with yeast and spice. The mouth was very prickly and light. There's a slight tart citrus flavor accompanied by some coriander on top of a good wheat and yeast base. The yeast and spice linger longest into the aftertaste. No appreciable hops, but they really aren't needed. I found this brew surprisingly yeasty for a Kristall, but pretty darn good nonetheless.

A bubbly pale body with a fluffy white head that settles down in short order. Nose is sweet and malty. Not much hops noticable. Schneider Weisse Kristall sports a clean, sweet taste with a familiar wheaty aftertaste. The beer is pretty heavily carbonated and I think this hinders drinkability a bit. Mouthfeel is similar to champagne carbonation, but with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. A good warm weather beer, but not fantastic.
