BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan
Germany
weihenstephaner.de

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.

Review on tap 4/30 (increase from original flat 3.75):
Clear pour, yellow straw in color. White fluffy head that lasts pretty well.
Nose has some sweetness to open, some banana esters and light floral and sweet fruit notes (indistinct).
Taste is similar to nose, feel is quite smooth, light to medium in body. Light sweet grains more or less dominate, but not to the point of making the beer seem sweet. Essentially the bitterness act to counter more than completely balance, but the effect is nice.
