I have to say that Erdinger Kristall is the worst beer that I've tasted so far. Taste and feel are awful (very sappy), very far from my own zone. Maybe this is good for someone else, but not for me (I mostly dring lager-type beers).
////////////////////
FINNISH: Täytyy sanoa että Erdinger Kristall on huonoin olut mitä olen maistanut tähän mennessä. Maku ja suutuntuma ovat hirveitä (todella imelä) ja kaukana omasta alueestani. Sopii ehkä jollekin toiselle, mutta en näe tätä sopivana lager-tyyppisistä oluista pitävälle.

Light copper hue with some greenish tinge. Nice head on this one, standing two fingers tall, great retention. Light lace. Smells of crackers, bread dough, straw and butterscotch. A little subdued.

Taste starts with malts cracker, bread, straw, grain and grass, giving way to sweet flavours of bubblegum, butterscotch, light caramel and some banana. Light bodied, clean finish. A decent take on the style.

Serving Type: 500 mL Bottle poured into an Erdinger Weissebier glass

A- Pours a "Kristal" clear gold colour (a little richer than a typical light lager). Fluffy white head with good retention. Thick patches of lacing.

S- Mainly bready with a hint of bubblegum. No typical Banana flavour found in a Weissebier (I expect that has something to do with the filtering process. A clean, crisp flavour that is a nice change of pace from the typical Wheat Beer.

T- Like the aroma, the flavour is very clean and crisp: Mainly a wheat/bready note, a hint of bubblegum, and an earthy/floral hops.

M- Light Body and steady, smooth moderate carbonation. Wet finish. Extremely refreshing.

O- The first Kristalweizen I've had the Privilege to try and I have to say that I was deeply impressed. Clean and crisp flavours comparable to the Czech Pilseners with the added Body/flavour of Wheat malt.
