12oz bottle out of a summer sampler, pours golden with excellent clarity, bubbly white head with decent retention and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas are muted but sweet with wheat and biscuit, but that's about it. Tastes are sweet honey, biscuity, nutty, wheaty, delicately hopped. Mouth-feel is thin-to-medium bodied, moderate carbonation, and finishes slightly dry. Overall, I think "Kristalweizen" isn't the proper style category for this one, as I would tend to think Kristalweizen = filtered German Hefeweizen, where this beer has no German influence at all. Kristal American Pale Wheat Ale? Whatever it may be, my values above represent it as an American wheat, and it's a decent beer if you want to think of it that way.

Little to no head. A piss yellow color. Mouth felt a little heavy. the honey was nice...I thought it would have been too sweet, but was impressed with the flavor.

Leaves a little after taste but not necessarily a bad one. I'd say this is more of a cooler weather beer despite it being boxed in the summer sampler.

Overall: Try it

Smell-Very honey like. Some hops.

Looks-Straw like yellow. Not that great.

Taste-Lots of honey up front. The after taste isn't that great. The after taste, taste like a Bud Light or something like that.

Overall it's not that bad of a beer. Much better than Bud Light or a big mainstreem beer..but not far off from them. Give it a try.
