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!

A robust hefeweizen. Great fruity aroma, banana, cloves...maybe some cherries. Solid flavor and goes down smooth.. On tap in Sindelfingen.

pours cloudy light golden with a frothy head. aroma has slight banana, but also a cardboard smell. I suspect this has been stored in the sun... The aroma has banana, and a roasted feel. unfortunately, i think this bottle has been stored wrong on its way to Gran Canaria.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml can served in a Weizen glass. A: Pours a deep yellow to orange hazy color forming a big creamy, fluffly and viscous white head. Good retention and many lacings left S: Strong on wheat, banana esters, coriander. Very sweet and bready. Bubblegum and light hints of citrus hops in the end M: Medium body. Very smooth and creamy. Good carbonation. Heavy wheat aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Classic Bavarian Weissbier. Recommended [ BA Review @ 9/30/2012 ]

Taboada (348) - Compostela (Galiza), - OCT 13, 2014
Tasted from the tap on the 11/10/2014. Hazy golden yellow colour with a lasting white head. Aroma of cereals, citrus and acid notes. The taste is light and watery. It´s not a good hefeweizen. Next one please!

Bork (241) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Fairly standard Hefeweizen. Low on flavor and rather sour but highly refreshing and easy to drink. Relatively low on banana aromas for the style.

UncleKorm (846) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2014
On tap, poured a milky yellow hue w/ big frothy lasting white head. Bold lemon and moderate yeast aroma. Initial taste is light sweet w/ a light citrus sour finish. Tastes are lemon, cream-o-wheat, and a mild yeast. Light bodied, light creaminess mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Very refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

budedou (396) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - SEP 23, 2014
König Ludwig Weissbier Hell. Off white top, light hazy yellow golden beer. A Taste; sweet spicy wheat malt, flowers, cinnamon, very modest hops. Fresh nice feel. Bread-liquored finisht, not very longlasting.
