4/5  rDev +14%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dark golden with lively carbonisation. Thick smooth and large head.

Smell: Sweet of bananas, spices and yeast.

Taste/ Mouthfeel: Spices with an underlying sweet wheat taste. Aftertaste is bitter with some banana sweetness, coriander and earthen spices. A lively carbonisation goes down smooth and is a tad bitey.

Drinkability/Overall: A very nice refreshing brew. Again this brewery seems to produce classic brews for their style. This brew and its brewery’s Weizen line is a great starter for anyone curious to the style.

look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Clear pale golden color, with a creamy white head. It looks slightly watery for a kristal weizen

Smell: Citrus and cloves.

Taste/Mouthfell: Citrus and cloves like the smell. The aftertaste is kind of off though, with a slight metallic flavor. The mouthfeel is a little thicker than I'd expect from a kristal, especailly from one as pale in color as this one.

Drinkability: The metallic aftertaste kills the chance of me trying this beer again.

Slightly deeper than straw colour. Minimal lacing around glass. Lots of carbonation visible but doesn't build to a thick head.
Unusual, but not overpowering, banana notes, stone fruit - perhaps apricot, vanilla, wheat. Easy supping. Tastes a little watery, a little acidic and the banana comes thru tho' not again not overpowering. Much like other mid quality kristallwiesens. Mouthfeel is good, quite carbonated. Nice on a hot day, and a slice of lemons tones down the 'nanas and gives it more bite.

pours clear gold with a smaller white head than the hefe. the head though is just as stable and is there for all 500ml.
lots of carbonation in this.
real nice clove and banana yeasty aroma. i can immediately taste bananas as i burp (pardon me).
spicy refreshing flavor with just enough dryness.
mouthfeel is bubbly and effervescent and smooths (as does the flavor) as it warms.
overall, this is pretty darn good. just lacks the punch of the hefe.

Kristall golden colour with a tall rocky white head. Pleasantly subdued banana aroma and crisp, clean wheat flavour with some slight fruitiness. If I had to describe this beer in one word I would use is 'boring'. It has all the good characteristics of a weizen, but nothing really makes too much of an impression. A good, well balanced, easy to drink beer. Probably a good beer with your morning bratwurst haha.

The beer started a bit above average with a clear straw color and a creamy white head. The head took off about half way through the glass and left no trace of existence with lace or even a couple of bubbles. It has kind of a week fruity fragrance that I almost had to dig for. The taste consisted of a slight fruit/citrus/bitter combination. Although it is a rather crisp drinkable beer, my opinion is that it is somewhat average and I will stick with its companion the Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen.

Pretty average i think, i usd to drink it a lot, but every time i have it, i like it less and less, very edgy watery character, with a bit of a yeasty wheat, and banana character.

nice smell, beautiful mouthfeel, but lacking in the taste department. It's just another Wheat beer, but it's a little too subtle for my likings. a banana flavour, averagly hopped, malt and wheat present.

a nice beer, but nothing really stands out.
