Brewed by:
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan

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.

Pours golden with an inch of foamy white head. Smells of bananas, grain and cloves. Tastes the same going down. Creamy medium mouth. Just a great Bavarian beer.

Appearance is a golden straw color that's cloudy with a one finger white head.
Aroma is yeast rolls and slight banana and spice.
Flavor is bready, yeasty, some slight banana. Really balanced. Pretty bitter.
Mouthfeel is crisp and medium with a lingering bitterness that sets s beer apart.
Reminds me of vitus but with a dominant lingering bitter flavor.
