500ml Bottle at Paulanergarten, Bremen, Germany (€4.20):
Clear amber with a lot of bubbles. The heas is a good sized, foamy white one with good retention over the opening minutes & lots of lacing too.

Good balance of wheat, banana & cloves with bubblegum & touches of yeast. Some sweetness appears with grassy notes & citrus too.

Citrus with cloves & wheat initially, some banana & bubblegum come next with touches of orange. I got hints of spice & there was a nondescript mix of fruits towards the end.

Smooth & light-medium bodied, strong carbonation with some added fizz and a good balance throughout. Lively & one that proved an easy one to drink.

Both times I've had this beer I've found it quite enjoyable, but much like the majority of kristalweizen's that I've tried I'd probably go with the hefeweizen version if it was available, the only reason I didn't in this case was because of how easy the hefe is to get a hold on in the UK but I've yet to come across the kristalweizen version at home.
