Other Information

The title of the oldest brewery in the world is in the hands of Weihenstephaner, founded in 1040 on the Weihenstephan hill north of Munich in Freising. The brewery has operated for almost 1000 years. Along with some of the world’s most knowledgeable brew masters, it has produced an excellent range of beers, all in accordance with the German Reinheisgebot which has helped it to secure numerous awards internationally for its products as well as being appreciated by connoisseurs in over 30 countries worldwide every day.
Your grasp of the German language does not have to be fluent to translate ‘Kristall Weissbier’ into Crystal Wheat Beer, which differs from normal wheat beers because it has the yeast filtered out of the beer, removing the haze and then resulting in a wheat beer that is crystal clear. Golden yellow in colour, the fresh citrus from the hops are well balanced by the clove and banana tones from the malts. It has a very clean taste and refreshes instantly. Weihenstephaner call this the breweries speciality and it is easy to see why. Pairs effortlessly with fish, seafood and other light dishes or just enjoyed solely as an aperitif.

  1. Stujago

    A great wheat beer. Maybe not as complex as it’s murkier, hazier counterparts but the result is a very pure wheat beer taste. The banana taste is certainly there. Very clean.

  2. Derek B

    A very good example of this type of wheat beer which is an acquired taste. Particularly pleasing served extra cold with a slice of lemon on a hot summers day.

  3. Andrew R.

    A crystal clear and perfectly refreshing choice for a hot day. Bright yeastiness with some serious banana & clove notes at the forefront. Very clean and light with a subtly sweet finish.

  4. Alastair_H

    Nice wheat beer, refreshing and tasty seemed strange having that taste from a clear beer rather than something you can’t normally see through.

  5. Crispy

    Great tasting and refreshing wheat beer.
    Will be ordering more.

  6. Gareth Roberts

    Nice and beery larger stye drink

  7. Chris Hart

    This is my favourite for sure. I usually order 20 and they tend to last me less than a week. Lovely flavour, crisp and light. Must be served cold, my preference is just below the point ice starts to form from the freezer – fast chilled.

  8. RJ

    Lovely. Great Weissbier – but still prefer the cloudy versions!

  9. Kristin

    Clean and crisp, very moreish.

  10. Eric Akrill

    This is a cracking kristall weiss which pours with a nice head, though it doesn’t hold. The colour is a bright, golden yellow and the opening aromas are of banana and clove with a hint of nutmeg. It has a sweetish flavour to it and the spices come through strongly from beginning to end. The after taste is fairly sweet with a lingering bitterness to follow, if that’s possible! A definite recommend from me and one I will be buying again.

  11. Sean Mc

    A superb kristall weiss and a good place to begin your weiss beer journey and move onto the more cloudy and robust weiss beers such as Schneider Weisse. This, unlike other traditional wheat beers, is crystal clear with a very moreish crisp finish. Very refreshing.

  12. Jens

    This is my favourite Kristall, even surpassing the excellent filtered varieties by the Schneider and Huber breweries. Crisp taste with lots of character, the perfect summer drink.

  13. Paul Boniface

    A lovely wheat beer with nice flavours. Very refreshing and very drinkable. Weihenstephaner is fast becoming my favourite German brewery.

  14. Barbara Brown

    Easy to order and quick delivery. The Weihenstephaner is my husbands favourite for taste best of the German wheat kristal beers

  15. Chris Meechan

    I’m not generally a huge fan of Kristalweizens but this is one of the better example out there. Similar to Weihenstephaner’s hefeweizen in that it is a sweet, clean wheat beer with banana notes. Lighter than the hefe though.

  16. Kris

    Enjoyed this beer (although I probably prefer the classic weisse from this brewery) – this was on the crisper edge of weisse for me.

  17. Gavin Harrison

    Kristall is the word. Absolutely crystal clear. As clear as a broth in the final of Masterchef. Beautiful gold colour, lovely firm head and that tell-tale aroma of tropical fruit signal that this is a very special beer – a mouth full of sweetness with just a hint of crisp bitterness confirm that it’s one to put near the top of the “My Favourite Beers” list.

  18. Liam Lewis

    First time I’ve tried one of these clear wheat beers and all in all pretty impressed. Nice golden colour and tropical flavours with good head retention.

  19. WJ

    If you look up wheat beer in a dictionary it should say Weihenstephaner! Another quality offering from this brewery, pours a light yellow, is not overly sweet which makes it rather refreshing for a wheaty.

  20. Matthew

    Nice clear wheat beer but I prefer the classic unfiltered wheat beer
