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!

prawlie (1210) - Berkshire, - JAN 17, 2011
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.

hfmejias (890) - 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 (2632) - 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.

cervmagpt (254) - PORTUGAL - FEB 18, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: predominant wheat aroma with some vanilla and citric notes. APPEARANCE: gold color and hazy. medium white head with average retention. TASTE: sweet wheat flavour predominant with some citrusy notes. no hop flavour and low bitterness. sweet finish. no DMS or diacetyl. PALATE: medium-light body with high carbonation. efervescent. OVERALL: a hefeweizen less impressive than the competition.

GuideDogSaint (603) - Xiamen, CHINA - FEB 15, 2015

Jamesthebrit (313) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Aroma is clove. A little spice. Looks fine. Hazy golden with pillowy white head. Taste is smooth. Yeasty super yeasty. Clove and herbs not coming through so much which is a good thing. Palate is smooth. A little lighter. Overall a solid beer.

AbbeyRoade (432) - Missouri, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Just an average, decent Hefeweizen. Not as light or yeasty as I am used to and without any of the clove or banana that I so love about Hefeweizens. I’d probably not even call this a Hefeweizen but more of a Weizen alone.

TedE (217) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Sweet savoury nose. Wheaty, almost smoked. Cloudy amber beer with thin head. Creamy mouthfeel, refreshing taste. Short wheat finish with tiny bitterness. Really good & moreish.

alomtnez (47) - SPAIN - FEB 10, 2015
On Tap. Flute. Soft but nice aroma with cereal and banana notes. Pale and hazy with small white head scarcely persistent that leaves a spare lacing. Taste: Softly sweet without almost bitternes. Banana, some fuitty notes (peach) and clove aftertaste. Quite good weissbier.

chuckstout (290) - Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Tart fruit, wheat, bubble gum. Pours a hazy straw color with a dense white head. Big flavors of fruit and banana light body with good carbonation and some sweetness. Tasty stuff.
