Postmortem Brew Review
Clear yellow color.
heat aroma with whiffs of banana and clove.
White, foamy three to four fingered head that lasts and lasts.
The lacing coats entire glass start to finish.
Off beat wheat taste with more banana flavor as it warms.
Moderate carbonation.
bodied; refreshing when served cold. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Another offering from the "World's Oldest Brewery."  This crystal clear wheat or kristall weissbier is just the thing for a 93 degree day.  But don't let it get warm.  The flavors open up and though they aren't distracting, the beer tastes best when chilly.  It will not weigh you down in the least.

Nearly as good as its big brother the hefe, Kristall Weissbier is perfect for warm days lazing by the pool.  I know from experience!
