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!

Foffern (1168) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a orange color with a large, creamy, white foam head. The aroma is extremely fruity with notes of banana, spices, wheat and lychee. The taste is sweet with a touch of wheat and pale malt, pear and banana, and some spices. Mouth feel is where it should be, soft and smooth, and the bitterness is low. This wheat beer has a great flavor, but a little light. Still a solid and balanced wheat beer.

The body was cloudy and had a cool, golden yellow color with visible carbonation. Its head is thick, creamy and bright white in color. It slowly fades to a thin cap that hangs on till the last sip and leaves nice lace on the glass. There is an inviting aroma of wheat, clove, fruity yeast and banana. The flavor has a good wheat malt base with fruity yeast that has notes of banana. Mellow herbal hops, spicy clove and a touch of lemon round out the flavor on a smooth creamy palate with a medium body and lively carbonation. It finishes somewhat dry with some lingering wheat and dry earthy tones. This is a great example of a German hefeweizen. The balance is spot on for the style and it is wonderfully refreshing and very easy to drink.

Foam stays. Light amber color. Simple in taste,but sweetness stays maybe too much even. Dense. Not bad but also nothing special.

Keg @ Jacobs Beer House, Bradford. Hazy yellow blonde, small creamy head. Full Weiss aroma, more steady taste, dry with healthy wheat beer taste.

venom666 (315) - Alicante, SPAIN - JUN 1, 2014
Cloudy golden color with white persistent head. Apparently a typical Weissbier, but this has something different. Aroma is very spicy, with cloves, pepper and sweet banana. Taste is very fruity, with banana, some vanilla, and a spicy aftertaste, with cloves and coriander. A really interesting one!

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is banana esters, wheat, clove and hints of straw and bread. Taste is banana, wheat, mild clove and hints of bread. Medium body and carbonation. Fair enough.

PapaVillum (402) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2014
0,5 l, flaske, 5,5 % ABV, gave fra Gabriel, Anastasia og Thomas - tak! 30. maj 2014. Korngul og ufiltreret tysk hvedeøl med 6-7 cm tyk hvis skumkrone med fine medium størrelse bobler (skænket i hvedeølglas). Aromaen i næsen er malt og lidt let citrus. Dejlig "kølig" smag med let bitterhed og tilpas sødme. Smagen starter ganske fint og let syrligt og skifter så karakter til det let bitre og søde og slutter ligeså af. God medium lang eftersmag. Indholdet af kuldioxid er på medium niveau, som er sædvane for hvedeøl. Dejlig klassisk hvedeøl, men måske lidt ovre i den søde afdeling.
