look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Clear golden color with a thick huge head with great retention.
Aroma with predominant notes of banana, bubblegum and cloves.
Flavor with notes of orange soda, some banana, cloves, spicy hops, bubble gum, dough and yeast. Dry aftertaste with a mild but spicy bitterness.
Medium body with good carbonation with tiny bubbles that expand.
Decent Weiss bier that focus in the basic notes of the style and it is not shy despite the fact it is filtered, it has still a good deal of yeast flavors. Still prefer the hazy versions.

L: gives a clear golden color, a huge top of creamy head when i pour in the glass that disolves slowly. Some sticky lacings on the side of the glass.

S: wheat,yeast,cloves,banana,lemon and citrus

T&F: Starts of with flavour of yeasty sweetnes and banana notes, i sense strong flavours of cloves in the background and it gets more strong in the middle, finishof with a dry spiciness, Afterstaste has decent lenght. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean with light body. Gets a little to watery in the mouth and the flavours gets a little flat to be a top beer.

O: Overall good and drinkable kristallweizen , a little to boring flavours to get to exiting. when that is said it went down quite easy and i could sure drink this again.

From Carrefour. In Bavaria glass. At dinner, after soccer match. With turkey steaks and macaroni bolgnese. Like the normal one. Very tasty and drinkable and with the body not feeling weaker.

Thick fluffy head, normal weizen aromas, but taste is good, and then fades fast. I miss the body of a real weizen. This has the body and mouth feel of a pale lager. Delicious, but not very substantial...
