Style: Kristalweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
In our golden-yellow crystal-clear wheat beer the fresh citrus flavour harmonises very well with spicy banana notes. The fine sparkling gives it a tangy and animated appearance. Throughout summer and winter, it’s a prickling experience. It goes well with fish, seafood, white meat or it can be enjoyed as an aperitif. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

My first bottle tonight is a crisper/dryer version of the normal Weiss version. Remarkable, delicious tart pear or green apple finish. Lacks the weight or depth of the regular weiss, but I could drink this all night. Based on other reviews I must have purchased a fresh bottle as this is a no brainer.
