This pours from 500ml bottle a slightly hazy medium gold with a large thick head of foam that shrinks to almost a solid fine layer and it has plenty of lacing.

The smell is of wheat, banana, and other fruit.

The taste has notes of wheat, banana, clove, fruit, and right near the finish, it has a real earthy taste to it. The body is medium light and the carbonation is medium. Good tasting and very drinkable Weizen and one that I'd buy again.

I see on the label that it says produced on 04.06 April 06 or June 04? I doubt the latter as this tastes reasonably fresh to me.

12 ounce bottle purchased at the North Coast Co-op in Eureka, California.

Bright white, airy pillow of foam ascends rapidly as I pour. The head deflates after several minutes leaving no lace, but a curds and whey layer of foam on the surface of the brew. Body is luminous straw yellow.

Smell is a lemon pepper encrusted breadiness with some brighter, grassy notes springing in the background.

The taste kicks off with a bitter-sweet undertone that rises into a buttered bisquit sweetness. Aftertaste is an enjoyable rattle of hops on the tongue, and still that mild sweetness lingers.

Mouthfeel is light, as it should be, and plenty carbonated.

Refreshing and flavorful.

Pours Golden and 99% clear. The head is white and fluffy like whipped egg whites that settles very slowly leaving faint hints of lace on the glass. The nose is really good and notably sweet and fruity malt. The hops are subtle and spicy. The taste is a sweet/dry that is tart and sweet and the same time. The Hops are mid level for bitterness and have a presence in the finish that starts with notes of a mid-level lemony/citrus taste. Overall this is an enjoyable beer.

This brew has a clear pale gold/straw color, with a volumous cream foam head on the top. Nice wheat characteristics with some lemon zest for the scent. Soft bread, lemon, wheat, banana, spice. Great taste, some acidity on the tounge, hail the german wheat machine.

1 pint (473 mL) brown bottle, capped. Best Before date in the bottle right corner of the front label. This bottle read "11.01", but tasted fine despite being almost 2 years beyond date.

This weiss beer poured a clear, golden-amber color with creamy, slightly off-white foam that clung to the sides of the glass. The smell was wheat, floral hops, and bread. The taste was a very lightly sweet, biscuity malt with light floral hops with notes of grain and a delicate, toasted banana flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with medium body and medium-low carbonation feel. There was a nice, lingering aftertaste. This was a nice weiss and very drinkable. It had also held up remarkably beyond its "expiration" date.

Pours a deep golden with a frothy white head. Light carbonation.

Sweet in the aroma, with notes of wheat, candi-sugar, and alcohol.

Smooth taste, light and sweet. Hoppy in the aftertaste, but initially it's all about the malt. Lovely.

This one's a keeper.

Crystal clear light straw color. Streams of carbonation make their way to the surface quite rapidly. A long lasting small sized white head sits on top. The aroma is really big on the vanilla. Banana esters and clove are present to a smaller degree. The taste takes the cue from the aroma. But it's a little more balanced. Vanilla, banana and clove mingle together nicely in this hefe. And there's also a little bubblegum to accentuate. Overall, this is quite the tasty Kristal. Hacker-Pschorr usually does not disappoint.

Presentation: 12oz slender brown European-style bottle, with freshness date.

Appearance: Bright pale golden beer, crowned by a thick, stiff creamy head from a active carbonation. Retains nicely.

Smell: Smells of a lemon scone, fresh baked with a fruity twang to it. Pleasant aroma with wheat malt sweetness and subdued fruity esters (faint banana), fermented wheat, a touch of phenols and some spicy clove play with the nose a bit.

Taste: Crisp moderate body. Very smooth and creamy on the palate, with an even malty character of light bread, vanilla, faint bubble-gum sweetness and solvent clove taste and slickness. A grain dryness follows that mixes with a lemony hop bitterness (not hoppy though) and carbonation to create a crisp snap, which is then joined shortly after by some more light clove flavours. Finishes with some grain, clove and sweetness and a pleasant lingering aftertaste.

Notes: An outstanding Kristall Weizen beer. Extremely flavourful and complex, while remaining refreshing and just an overall pleasure to drink.

A truly excelent brew! The pour was great with a huge bubbly white head that settled nicely after a minute. The aroma hit me as soon as I started pouring with a sweet lemon scent and once I smelled the beer, faint scents of bananna and pepper mixed in as well giving this beer a very inviting smell.
The flavor of this brew was outstanding as well, with a light malt sweetness in the front and a slight bitterness in the finnish that was excentuated by the great carbonation of the beer. A wonderful drink for sure, very recommended.
