On tap at Triumph Brewpub. Pint glass.

LOOK: cloudy yellow, pretty nice sized head, fades to creamy lacing.
AROMA: lemon, wheat,
TASTE: Very citrus as the name suggests...lemon lime, wheat, not much else, but those are solid. The beer is exactly what it says it is.
FEEL: a little slimey, but decent carbonation.

First had: on tap at the Philly brewpub

A kristalweizen is basically an unfiltered hefeweizen, and as such, I was a bit surprised when this came out to me quite cloudy in the glass, pale straw-yellow with a huge fluffy white head that retained and laced well. Major funk in the aroma, lesser herbal and grassy notes with hints of citrus. A touch of tartness up front on the palate, biscuity, more herbal, wet grassy goodness, lemon zest, light peppery spice. Crisp and clean, dry, light-medium body, and very drinkable.

On tap in New Hope. My favorite of the 4 beers I tried. Pours a nice cloudy yellow. I get lemon peel and a bit of grassiness on the nose. Smooth and well-balanced taste- maybe a little thin but still surprisingly creamy for a weizen- the chamomiles there and works better than expected- definitely subtle, but pairs well with the more citrusy, lemon notes. I also get a faint cinnamon sweetness mixed in. Definitely one of Triumph's more intentionally "drinkable" brews, but complex and memorable enough to stand out to me. Would get again.

A - filtered hefe, low head, some carbo apparent.

S - mild grassy herbal thing.

T - light bready body up front followed by the chomomile and lemongrass. Really clean, not overbearing.

M/D - light mouthfeel, really easy to drink. Good beer with a nice twist.
