Poured a consistent and nice head. Golden color and the label says it is not hazy once this Weiss was filtered.
Aroma predominantly banana and a hint of cloves and condiments.
Low carbonation.
Refreshing taste, not very sweet. It has a zesty flavor, mildly bitter (you can feel its hops!) and with some species. Even though was filtered you can still taste the yeast. Harmonious ending, a little dry. Definitely a top notch weissbier extremely well balanced and still off the beaten path. Really liked this beer.

500ml bottle poured into a half-pint Paulaner glass, sitting on a Paulaner coaster. How 'bout that?

a: pours a clear golden, lots of carbonation bubbles rising. 3 finger head or so quickly fades to a half finger which sits on top.

s: malts and wheat dominant, some very light banana, not really much spice.

t: pretty light, nice malts, some light banana flavor, again not much on the spice end, pretty strong carbonation

o: average, not too exciting, but i know i prefer hefeweizens over kristalweizens.

Very disappointing receipe: I had expected far better from a brewery that makes one of the best hefe's in beerland.

Very boring and tasteless beer.
Smell clearly of bread and grassy hops.
Nice straw colour and nice carbonation as well. Fluffy head.
All in all, it's beer as clear as you'd like, reminding of a lager.
The banana and spice that is so great in wheatbeers from Germany is very much missed. In fact, this is just a very plain and ordinary beer.
As I said: if you want something like this, you might just as well pick a plain lager of some kind... the wheat character is there, but this drink should be much more exciting.

Great Weißbier. Yesterday was a hot day in Holland and we ate pizza's outside. Mrs. Brabander and i drank this beer in the original glass.

Wonderfull beer only to look at. Light sweetness and light carbonation. Citrus. Five fingers head but that is very easy to get with this beer.

This is one of the better German Weißbeers that you can get on the market.

Pours clear pale yellow, streaming with small carbonation bubbles and huge white head with excellent retention, patchy lacing. Aroma is sweetish banana, spicy as well as weak wheat.

Taste is clean banana, hints of vanilla, wheat and dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium with slightly more than average carbonation that helps to accentuate hints of spice that can be better felt after midway through the glass.

A decent Kristallweizen, one of the best I have had. Its flavour is much stronger if compared to other filtered Weizen beers.
