COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is Royal Barvarian Hefeweizen. Why are the Bavarian Royal Family and King Ludwig so important to brewing history? The Bavarian Royal Family had sole rights to brewing Hefe-Weizen on Bavaria for over 200 years. No wonder we are the leading experts on wheat beers!

georgekessel (68) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2006
Bottle, nice hazy classic Bavarian Hefeweizen look. A bit over-carbonated, I found that if I poured it high with a big head it lost some of the carbonation and thus tasted much better. Not enough hints of fruit for my taste, I’ll stick with my Paulaner :)

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2006
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow/gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, bananas, and sweetness. Flavor is smooth, sweet, bananas, wheat, slightly watery and thin. Good drinkable brew.

Skinnyviking (8435) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 1, 2006
Bottle. White head. Unclear golden body. Banana vanilla aroma. Not as sweet as expected, actually it has some bitterness and a good deal of carbon dioxide.

DuffMan (8823) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2006
<Head-to-head comparison of German wheats, with Hacker-Pschorr and Schneider>. Cloudy amber yellow, massive head that collapses rapidly. Compared to the other two wheats, this had almost no characteristic aroma-- mostly wet hair and yeast. Same with the palate-- washed out flavours compared to the other two wheats. Not one I’d return to.

SDalkoholic (2314) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 21, 2006
Pours somewhat cloudy with a abruption of head that soon dies out. Aroma is a light with bavarian hops, banana and wheat. Flavor is made of the same thing with a thin soapy body but all in all is easily drunk and enjoyed.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2006
Hazy pale yellow, thick, creamy white head. Fruity, wheaty aroma with notes of yeast, clove and banana. Refreshing, somewhat spicy flavour with hints of ginger, ham and sugar. Medium bodied. Sweet, acidic finish.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Poured a murky dusky yellow with a tight white head. Had a nice spicy aroma to it. It tasted spicy with a hint of bananas and cloves. This was a nice weiss,

skoisirius (1887) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2006
This bottle came in under the name of "Konig Ludwig Weiss, Royal Bavarian Hefe-Weizen". It came in a beautiful six-pack from Whole Foods. The casing has this enormous castle on it. Poured a semi-cloudy and yellowish color. At first taste came a strong sense of lemon that moved into more of a honey finish. I’m not a huge Hefe-Weizen fan, but this was definitely tasty!
