12oz stubby brown bottle poured into a pilsner/small hefeweizen glass.

Appearance – Slightly cloudy golden with a white head that dissipated quickly.

Smell – balance of hops and yeast in the nose.

Taste – No taste detected until the finish, then sweet toasted notes are detected alongside subtle hops.

Mouthfeel – Very smooth, slightly heavy, and well carbonated.

Drinkability – Could I, and would I, want to drink a case of this? Yes. There’s not much complexity but it was a very smooth and balanced beer.

Thanks to Assurbanipaul for this fine Texas beer.

The head is small, white, noisy, bumpy, the beer a clear, rich gold. Nuts and sugar in the nose. Starts with some nice bitter hops and a pleasant fruitiness. Sweet malt through the middle morphs into a bitter, hoppy finish. Quite nutty. This is fairly full-flavored: fruity, nutty, bitter. Nice.

Sampled in a 12 oz. bottle.

This Kristal wheat poured a pale sun yellow with a slight haze and a very small, white head. Left very little lacing and there was little head retention.

The aroma was of sweet malt and with hints of citrus and other fruits. Maybe some white grape thought I?m not positive on that.

The taste was malty with subtle wheat and hints of citrus and hops. Medium-high carbonation helps with a crisp mouthfeel and it had a slight hop bite at the end.

Thank you kindescut for the sample.

Pours a light golden color, with virtually no head. Typical wheat aromas are found, with a hint of hop. The beer is very crisp, and has many characteristics of a pale ale. Very hoppy and slightly bitter, the malt sweetness helps balance things. The is slight carbonation to the beer, but nothing very outstanding. This isnt a bad beer, but its far from being great. Very thin, but quite refreshing. Overall its quite an average beer, however its much better than most other beers that I've sampled from Texas.

Being a fellow Houstonian and supporter of this local micro-brewery, I'll try to be objective as possible.
Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with not much head.
Smells sweat and malty. Taste is malty with a hint of wheat and small hop bite at the end. The head leaves a thin lace down the glass. This is my second favorite St. Arnold's brew behind the Brown. A better than average wheat beer.

Pours a clear pale golden color with almost no head. Aroma is sweet wheat and malt with a faint hint of citrus. It’s a bit thin in the mouth, but it is quite crisp and refreshing. Medium wheat flavors with a light hop bitterness in the finish. There are better American wheat beers out there.

Pours a slightly hazed golden color with a small head that dissipates fairly quickly yet still leaves a lace down the glass. The smell is that of a faint wheat beer with some sweetness too. The taste is surprisingly refreshing with plenty of carbonation and hop bite with a toned down wheat flavor. Not too bad...but not great for the style. Cheers from Texas!
