Pours clear, gold in color with one and a quarter inch head. Taste is bready, wheat, and a touch of bubblegum. Light bodied, high carbonation, and sweet. Tasty and a nice German lager, but I do prefer other versions of the style.

Flat bonde body. Kristall clear. 3 finger white head that fizzed away quickly.
Wheat and grass in the aroma. Some bubblegum and Band Aid from the yeast.
Bready malts with some grass and spice. bubblegum and Band Aids show up towards the end.
Medium body, medium carbonations. A little weighty on the the palate.

I am bored to death.

Edit: And bananas. I get over ripe bananas.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear yellow, big head.

Smell: Very big bubblegum, I like it.

Taste: Bready, some earthiness, mild sweetness. No bubblegum or banana, kind of disappointing.

Overall: Beer #2 from the sample pack. I really liked the smell of this beer but none of the smell was apparent in the flavor. Tasted like a standard lager or generic wheat beer.

L: Pous a clear golden color with a big top of creamy white head that disloves slowly, sticky nice lacings on the glass.

A: Aroma is off wheat,grass,banana with some slight notes of citrus and spices.

T: some malty and bready notes in the back with some fruity sweetness and hint off spices in the front, slightly dry finish. Aftertaste is quite weak. Very little that resembles a weissbier in this one.

M: Medium body with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean but a little to watery.

O: Is decent and easy enough to drink, but not very interesting in any aspects.

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.
