I think that this is the only weizen brewed in Mexico (craft breweries possibly excepted). I frankly do not understand how anyone can rate this weizen poorly; it's perhaps the best out there. The Mexican beers have their roots in the German and Austrian traditions due to a large immigration from those countries about 100 years ago. Many of those beers remain very true to their roots, this one included (Corona excepted). For a genuine delicious weizen, you don't have to look any further than this. Disfrutar!

I had this beer while in Vallarta and was very happy with it. It can be hard to find. Poured from 12 oz bottle: Golden in color, smell of spices, flavorful crisp finish.

Presentation: Brown 325ml squat bottle, with short neck covered in vanilla foil. The label declares, modestly, "cerverza de trigo" (wheat beer).

Appearance: Cloudy pale white-golden color with a typical wheat beer tiny lace.

Smell: Fresh wheat malt in the nose, hints of lemon and powdery yeast as well.

Taste: Crisp and smooth as Alpine air. There is lots of fresh fermented wheat flavor that creates bit of a twang. Faintly hoppy. A touch fruity with pear in the back and vague banana in the front with some alcoholic esters wavering in the finish. This beer's finish is so nice, substantial and bready, though I wish it had more of the banana phenol finish that I love in Hofbräu Münchner Weisse.

Notes: Perfectly balanced for the style and extremely drinkable.

Since moving to Mexico from Boston two years ago, I've enjoyed this country's many fine beers. There is little difference in price among them. I have occasionally treated myself to a few bottles of Hofbräu Münchner Weisse, which costs quite dearly here (around $20/6). Imagine my excitement (and initial skepticism) when I found this gem in the chain convenience store, Oxxo. This beer is A M A Z I N G with the juice from a wedge of orange, as Cervercería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma points out in the ads. I am unsure why Americans think that Mexicans use lime juice or salt in their beer to cover a bad taste; the lime compliments (not compensates) the flavor of the beer. Imagine, Mexico making a lovely Kristallweizen! And this price cannot be beat! It costs pretty much the same as every other Mexican beer, which, I probably needn't remind you, are far better than anything brewed in the US. I got sick of cheap imitation American micros costing the same or more than the beers they tried to imitate. I would have to search hard to find American beer here. Why? Because Mexicans know that American beer, almost without exception, sucks. Americans should probably look at adding lime and salt to their awful Budweiser.

I pray that Cervercería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma continues to produce this one.

My # 150 beer I review. It is the latest of Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma, is supposed to be the season for summer, as "Noche Buena" is for winter.

A: Blonde and bright color, the head of foam is creamy with a thick finger, the same logo of the other bohemian;

S: Fruity, notes of orange and bread, possibly aromatic herbs such as oregano and cloves;

T: Very good, banana and tangerine.

M: Refreshing, medium bitterness, suitable carbonation, which leave you a nice tangerine flavor;

D: Excellent for lunch or hot summer nights, i hope CCM sell this one all the year.

This is a proper beer. Not exactly "Mexican" but a very accurate representation of a great German style. I really didn't expect this to be so good and it makes me wonder how many good beers this brewery could produce if it had the market here in Mexico. This beer and Noche Buena are my favorite beers in Mexico. And the price (converted to about $1 a bottle in late Feb 2015 in Xalapa) makes it a go-to when I'm craving a well-crafted beer in a sea full of Tecate and Corona.

Quite a surprise!

Cuauhtémoc-Moctezuma does it again... A couple of years ago they brewed and put out to the market a Vienna Lager, with no ads at all. And it stuck, 'cause it's still out there. :-)

Last night I found this Kristalweizen, hoping it will hold too.

Guess they're recycling the intent, if not some of the formula, from the now extinct Triguera from the Casta brewery that they bought out some years ago. It also was a Kristalweizen; although it started as a regular hefe.

Standard foil-topped stubby bottle of the brand, only in a lighter shade of golden, and the label clearly states Bohemia Weizen, with a much modest "Cerveza de trigo" (wheat beer) on the left side.

With a careful pour in a weizen glass shows a light amber, with a small white fluffy head and no lacing to talk about. A second bottle, with a more vigorous pours gives a good head, only a short living one.

Smell is aromatic, but it lacks the banana/bubble gum phenols so typical of the style. Wheat malts are present, though.

Taste is quite refreshing, wheaty and with a little tanginess.

Mouthfeel is round, buttery with a not so dry finish.

Drinkability is high: It's the cheapest wheat beer here in México, quite decent too.

Can't wait to pair it with some fish. ;-)

¡Salud!

A: Pours a clear, golden/straw color with a one finger foamy white head on top. Not much retention and very little lacing.

S: A good bit of wheat, light bananas and cloves, with some orange as well. Reminds me of blue moon actually.

T: Similar to the aroma, but a little weaker. Some light wheat, a little bit of banana, light spice, and a touch of orange and orange zest.

M: Light to medium bodied with nice carbonation. Very refreshing, does well on a hot day.

O: Pretty good, was excited to find it down in Mexico, not sure if this offering makes it to the US or not, but would pick it up again.

Clear with tiny streamers, golden in color with a thin and rather weak head. Nose is pretty good, with a strong clove and banana scent. Light flavors but pleasant and within the style.

Generally a good beer. Mild flavors of wheat, banana and phenolics, with a strange little nod to citric fruit. Ordinarily with this style you might get some lemon, but this is more orange zesty.

Carbonation is high, makes a refreshing drink. It's super light all around, but the taste is good enough to make it worth your summertime while.
