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!

hfmejias (937) - Dover, Delaware, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle. Poured cloudy orange with a nice white head that left spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, yeast and wheat. Taste lots of bananas and other fruits, some malts and yeast. Quite sweet but surprisingly quite refreshing. Very drinkable and very enjoyable.

tectactoe (3072) - Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Tap: Cloudy, bright yellow color. Completely hazed with a fluffy white head. Aroma loaded with banana yeast esters, ripe pear, mildly sweet bubblegum, clove, a hint of citrus. Flavor has a nice lemon zest up front, leading into a more delicate, yeasty sweetness. Baked banana bread, citrus spritz, gum, yeast, clove, a touch of mint, & moderate bubblegum. Chunky mouth feel, medium bodied & on the edge of chewy. Good stuff.

APPEARANCE: gold color and hazy. medium white head with average retention.
