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!

As Konig Ludwig Weissbier, 500 mL bottle poured into a pint glass at home. A thick creamy head over a bright orange beer. Smells typically wheat beer. Tastes ok, but is a bit plain. Smooth but not memorable.

Bottle. Hazy golden yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of banana and cloves, typical. Sweet taste, with a decent bitterness, bit sour. Medium mouthfeel, fresh carbonation. Decent malty, lightly fruity aftertaste. Refreshing and pleasant, nice.

A) Bananas, some clove and some breadiness. A) Spot-on for a German wheat. Cloudy, dark gold. T) Sweet and notes of the wheat and yeast are present. clean finish. P) Full bodied, creamy . And there’s that awesome weissbier carbonation with the pop it brings. O) A+ sample of the style. Excellent

Ein gutes Weizen, jedoch mit einer etwas aufdringlichen Säure. Dadurch etwas unrund meiner Meinung nach. Erfrischend, mit den typischen Weizenaromen Banane und Nelke.

drdisque (636) - Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Imperial Pint poured in a novelty weizen glass. Pours fizzy cloudy light gold. Light grain aroma. Flavor is dominantly creamy, sweet, slightly fruity and fairly crisp. A very good traditional Hefeweizen, but a little bit simple and light.

Hazy yellow pour, some froth. Aroma suggests wheat, yeast and bananas. Taste is very much same. The banana taste is strong and could be overwhelming for some, but not me. Overall , a very good hefeweizen, although a little thin and watery.

Foerdifuxx (37) - Franconia, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2015
It produces a cloudy offwhite, quite long lasting head. The colour is hazy orange. Aromas of banana and wheat. Very yeasty, malty flavour with banana, vague honey, some spices and grassy. fruity hops. medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Solid.

TorbenJensen (520) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2015
Foam is rich and persistent aroma and the typical wheat malt with distinctive aromas of ripe banana. The taste may be a bit thin compared to other Bavarian good hefeweizen, yet has all the flavor notes of banana and fresh grains, but is also a little watery in its expression. This hefeweissbier is tasty and although it is a little watery. Hop bitterness is gentle, but contribute to long aftertaste. As other reviewers have mentioned, I also think it is fine for a hot summer where it can be enjoyed nice cold.

Hazy yellow coloured with a white head. Fruity aroma with notes of spices and yeast. Sweet fruity flavour with notes of yeast.
