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!

DraftDodger (884) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2016
Copenhagen 13/3 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny as "König Ludwig Weissbier". Very yellow label with a shield, lions and other heraldic stuff on it. Pours hazy pale yellow with white head. Settles as patchy, thin layer of foam. Aroma is sweet and of banana, bubblegum and lemonade. Very characteristic wheat beer odeur. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Taste is sweet lemonade with hints of banana and sugary fruit. A little sournesss in aftertaste lighten it up a bit. I am sure that this is how Der Prinzregent likes his lemonade - but a little too sweet for me.

Cristobal37 (664) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 3, 2016
On tap at Green Sheep Budapest. Hazy not tons of head but nice lacing. Sweet banana and fresh wheaty aroma. Slight tartness at first immediately followed by sweet silky wheat, banana bread, and some herbal spice in the sticky palate. Really nice!

IlGagario (104) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 22, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2016 In bottiglia. Colore ocra torbido. Schiuma alta color bianco leggermente scuro, fragile, mediamente frizzante in bocca, un poco granulosa. Olfatto dominato dal lievito, poi malto di frumento, spezie, lontana vaniglia e banana. Carbonazione soffice. Aroma caratterizzato dal lievito, in lontananza spezie e limone. Vaniglia e banana lontane, alle gonadi. Gusto mediamente dolce, poco amaro. Corpo sottile, delicato. Finale abbastanza prolungato, di spezie e lontana vaniglia. Chiusa soffice e pulita, di frumento. Estremamente scorrevole, trama un po’ troppo watery, con sensazione complessiva povera e poco significativa. Una weissbier di buona fattura ma un po’ anonima, rinfrescante e abbastanza equilibrata, sebbene alla lunga alquanto noiosa. Da consumare giusto per togliere la sete, non per degustare.
