BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan
Germany

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.

This beer is like drinking joy. It brightens and warms like the sun, with its clean wheat and banana notes glowing on your palate. If this was the only beer out there, I'd be just fine.
