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!

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2004
(Tapped) Orange, opaque color with a small head. Mild aroma with yeast and wheat, plus a hint of banana. Some banana in the flavor, which is dryish for a weizen. Slightly stingy, medium-bodied, medium-carbonated palate. A quite smooth, but somewhat tasteless and uninteresting weizen.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Tap @ Gustav’s Vancouver, WA
Pale yellow lemonade color with a faint glimpse of mist. Nice thick creamy white head & sheets of lacing. The aroma is malty with torrified wheat & banana/clove esters, honeydew melon and a little sharp alcohol present. The flavor is full of sweet fruit & nice wheat & bavarian wheat esters. Finishes citrusy & smooth. Very nice german wheat but a bit sharp on delivery.

pilsnerrogge (2588) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2004
Cloudy beige colour. White, rocky head. Clove and banana aroma. Slightly sourish, yeasty and very quenching. A bit thin though.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Brewtopia 2004: Cloudy orange with a thin white head. Banana and clove aroma, light fizzy body, sweet ending and very crisp. I would like to try a fresh one of these.

Pours a lite cloudy golden with a whip cream head. Great balance of banana clove aromas. Wonderful lite crisp body with a great refreshing flavor. One of the best hefe’s I’ve had.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2004
Bottled :(Konig Ludwig) Initiall nose is quite yeasty before setting into the typical banana/clove notes. Pours a cloudy light yellow with a medium sized hightly packed head. Body is well carbonated. Body is a bit thin and watery but the usual flavours of banana and cloves are present but not as sweet as many. Not bad, I’d drink it again.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2004
A run of the mill weiss. Cloves and vinegar aroma, salty taste with a rather watered-down palate for the style.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2004
Bottled. A floral wheaty aroma to this very hazy murky light brown beer. The taste is floral and fruity but a bit thin. I’m still struggling to appreciate this style

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 This pours yellow with big bubbles and a thin, white, swampy head. The nose is a bit tingy, yeasty, sweet, with a lemon-peppery deal going on. The tastes are of warm bananas, salt, slight dryness, acid. It’s a bit thin and it tastes like you’d expect it to if you’ve had a hefeweizen.
