Style: Kristal Weizen
Style Information
Kristal Weizen (literally translated as "crystal white") is a version of weissbier that is filtered to remove the yeast, giving it a clarity not found in other wiessbier styles. The color ranges from very pale yellow to deep gold. The aroma should be similar to that of a Hefe Weizen, with malt sweetness, cloves, nutmeg, and fruit/banana characteristics apparent. Hops notes should be very low or nonexistent. The taste should have similar notes, with cloves, banana, and a decent malt sweetness. Bready yeast notes in both aroma and taste should be minimal, since this is a filtered version of a weissbier. The feel should be medium to full bodied, with notable carbonation. ABV should be 4.9% to 5.5%. IBUs should be low at 10 to 15.
