Schöfferhofer Kristallweizen (500ml Bottle)
Sparkling and clear, bubbling over with temperament.
Pours clear pale golden with a fine, creamy, white head. Sweet wheat aroma, light citric and banana a tad sugary. Highish carbonation, fair mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, light metallic, some citric. Actually a kinda fine kristall weizen.
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.
