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!

Frank (2727) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2003
Glowing golden yellow with a very fine haze. Thin white head. Spotty lace. Estery nose with notes of cloves bread, and sweetness. Sweet front. More complexity comes out in the middle--bananas, cloves, brown sugar, butterscotch. Light and fluffy mouthfeel. Only the slightest hint of hops in the finish. Mild, refreshing, and elegant.

Had this one under the alias "Konig Ludwig Weiss" on draught in St. Charles, Illinois. Very light for a wheat brew, dissapointing finish and aroma. Redish and hazy appearance, with little head. I would call this substandard of the genre.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - APR 13, 2003
hazy amber, develops a big head that subsides quickly. yeasty citrus nose. rather light beer , with a basic wheat taste , not much in the way of subtleties.

Diablokev (146) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2003
The aroma is yeasty a bit stale. The appearance is a cloudy honey like gold, with a thin white head. The flavor is very dry, with very little aftertaste, has a light taste of bubble gum. The beer is smooth and crisp. Overall this beer is ok but not great.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2003
Cloudy honey color with a large creamy white head. Aroma of yeast and fruit( maybe apple but no banana). Mainly a yeast/grain flavor with a hint of fruit and spices on the sides and back of the mouth. Finish is slightly dry.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2003
Pale cloudy yellow, but it's easy to see thru. This had a nice fizz to it - I mean that in the best possible way - a refreshing, bright fizz with some mellow herbal touches. not bad at all. will get some more of this in the summer.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - APR 6, 2003
Pale yellow colour, quite cloudy appereance, good head. Usual banana aroma. The flavour is probably too much standard: good malty sweetness, quite yeasty, less sour than other wheat beers. Nothing special...

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2003
Body is straw colour and hazy with lots of bubble action. White foamy head started large but settled pretty quickly. Aroma of wheat, malts, banana and floral notes. Flavour is wheaty with a lemon-citrus tange to it. Finish is a bit thin but still pretty smooth.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAR 31, 2003
Bottle. I quite liked this. Very light appearance, especially during the pour, big frothy head that made me wish that I had drank it from my stein instead of a pint glass. Banana-clove aroma and flavor, with a touch of thick breadiness that lingers into the aftertaste. Clean, refreshing, and nice.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2003
Quite light. Nose is predominantly banana/wheat, flavor is more of the same. A bit of sweetness as well, but not much depth at all. Finish is practically nonexistent, after the swallow it largely disappears.
