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!

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2003
A beautiful pouring beer, nice head and wheat like body. Fragrance was quite nice. Taste is very pleasant although not especially substantial. All in all I enjoyed this beer quite a lot. Hefe Wiezens are almost always highly drinkable.

jsquire (3387) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Cloudy yellow with a whipped egg white head out of the bottle. Sweet, thin nose and very soft mouthfeel. Traditional German wheat beer banana/clove spice flavor. Exactly what I expected from a German wheat and nothing more.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2003
The aroma of bananas, with just a slight hint of cloves. Hazy yellow with a textbook prefect never ending head, not that that is unusual in a Weissbier. A little sweet and sour, medium mouth fell but the overall effect is dry and thirst quenching. A good example of this style a little on the light side but flavorful enough.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2003
A cloudy dark straw color with a white head that is slightly frothy. The aroma is of banana and wheats. The flavor of bananas has some bitterness and lots of wheaty aftertaste.

joet (2128) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUL 11, 2003
Interesting, it has all the hallmark signs of a true weiss -- light clove and banana aroma, pillowy head (almost), but almost no creaminess to the body. The feel is barely there at all. That says it all.

Sigmund (4936) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2003
(500 ml bottle, under its alias König Ludwig Weissbier). Cloudy blond colour, large head. Lovely aroma of ripe bananas and cloves. Light bodied, some cloves in the flavour, refreshing. Like most weissbiers a short aftertaste, but what there is, is good.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 3, 2003

Cloudy blond color. An initial wave of banana aroma, disappearing quite quickly. Spicy taste, but poor in all the rest, with a too simple final.

The Etruscan (498) - Tuscany, ITALY - JUL 1, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2007 Foamy white weak head. Cloudy deep yellow. Aroma is fruity with citrus, apples, banana and spicy notes. Flavor is fruity too (apricots) a bit watery, ending in a moderately fruity finish. Light bodied.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2003
Spicy, yeasty aroma. Pours a straw yellow, cloudy, nice head. Satisfying spice, citrus flavour, acids present. A good example of its style. Refreshing.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2003
Starts slightly cloudy dirty yellow. Brightens as it settles in the glass. Light yeast aroma. Very smooth palate. Not a lot of spice or complexity. An excellent beverage for hot summer weather.
