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!

Medium hazy honey with a smaller than expected lasting snowy white head. Faint metallic and plastic wafts through stronger stale sourdough. Medium light body for a German wheat. No use by date - I suspect this is far from fresh. Medium light stale bitter hops, medium light grapefruit zest sour, lightly sweet with hint of banana. Soft moderately bitter finish.

dmit I bumped my numbers up a bit as I am presuming that this was a tad old (clue: ON SALE). Wasn't the least bit bad at all, just somewhat lacking in certain factors. And I do think that weissbiers tend to be much better fresh. It was rather well appreciated though as I consumed directly outside the store on a beautiful day as I was getting impatient for the rest of my party to finish shopping.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2004 Frothy head, light color, cloudy. Rich smooth malty flavours with some banana and spice.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2004
Mainstream weissbier, was a negativ surprice. Not because it is a bad weissbier, but because it was not better.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2004
Cloudy bronze with a big, long lasting foamy head. This weiss is pretty light on for everything. There is slight aroma flavour and finish of coriander and citrus. More intensity required.

JK (4659) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 Probably the most aromatic wheat I have had. Tons of citrus aroma with some banana and coriander. Clearer apperance than I like for a wheat. Good flavor, sweet with citrus.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2004
On tap. Hazy dark yellow color with big rocky head. Not much clove aroma or taste, but with a lemony refreshing flavor. Typical German wheat beer, but refreshing.

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2004
This has all the elements of a good weizen: banana, lemon, spice. However, its has a plastic off-flavour that just kills it.

skortila (4646) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2004
Wheaty, sweet fruity banana smell. Cloudy, yellow-orange coloured with a initially large white head. Taste is wheaty and fruity (banana). Fresh palate. Okay brew, but nothing special.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2004
Heavy chill haze (not yeast) which was a surprise. Good head retention, pale yellow with almost green tinges. Pretty high carbonation (surprise!) Banana, clove, freshly yeasty aroma. Flavour is spritzy and refreshing but not a great deal going on. It's a nice beer but not up to the standards of other Weizens.
