Pale gold, yellow. Thick white, whipped head.
Wheat malt aroma, pear, touch of vanilla, green citrusy fruit smells, and a hint of a hop note. Can't smell any clove or other signature aromas of this style.
Taste is subdued wheat, some toastiness. Not very complex. Good thirst quencher, but not remarkable.
Moderate carbonation, but body quite light... slips away fairly quickly... gives the impression of a creaming soda or similar. I'm not overly impressed with this.

A bubbly pale body with a fluffy white head that settles down in short order. Nose is sweet and malty. Not much hops noticable. Schneider Weisse Kristall sports a clean, sweet taste with a familiar wheaty aftertaste. The beer is pretty heavily carbonated and I think this hinders drinkability a bit. Mouthfeel is similar to champagne carbonation, but with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. A good warm weather beer, but not fantastic.

500ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.80):
Clear, golden yellow with a very large, foamy white head that I expected for the style. There is visible evidence of carbonation and the head holds quite well.

Wheat and clove with lighter banana & a sweetness. Bubblegum and vanilla following on from the initial aroma. There is also some spice and touches of fruit that is reminiscent of either pears or light apples.

Clove & banana are the focus of this one with the same hints of sweetness that feature in the smell. There is some wheat and a mix of citrus flavours with some bubblegum thrown in at the end for good measure.

Light medium in body with a little spice and a tang to it with lively carbonation. The beer is slightly dry towards the end with a crisp finish.

Not a bad beer, naturally lighter than a hefeweizen but also very similar in most aspects with the same combination of banana, clove and citrus notes although none come across as strong they would in a hefeweizen.

Bottle, wheaty banana nose, light yeastiness. Medium golden straw color, slightly hazy, with a huge fine-grained long-lasting white head, good lace. Light sourish mash-like wheat initial, mild spice, banana, smooth and very drinkable.
