Weihenstephaner Kristall Weissbier (500ml Bottle)
The source of its pearling, effervescent taste is the secret fermentation process which we have developed especially for our crystal wheat beer. It quenches your thirst like no other beer. With its elegant appearance, it is the speciality of our brewery. Goes well with fish, seafood and light dishes.
Aroma is typical of German wheat beer, with muted banana. Poured a brilliant crystal clear golden colour with substantial wheat head. Flavour was of sweet malt and clove. Very filling for a wheat beer, and surprisingly flavourful for a filtered Weissbier.
Kristalweizens are the third member of the German Wheat trifecta. Deriding by many beer lovers as castrated hefeweizens, kristalweizens are known for their filtered, sparkling colour. They have the classic spritzy carbonation of wheat beers, and the same tart wheat notes and signature components of banana, bubblegum and spice. The body is light, and alcohol ranging around the 5% mark, give or take half a point.
