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!

Bought a bottle at Albert Heijn. Has a hazy golden color and a large white head, lots of bubbles. Has a fruity aroma with tones of bananas and apples. Has a light sour and dry taste with tones of spices, apples and bananas. Is also a little watery. Aftertaste is dry and has a light bitter. I thought Hefeweizen where fine beers, but this one disappointed me a little. It’s a fresh beer, but that’s all.

Tap at claddagh. Tall pilsner weissbeer glass. Hazy gold with white head. Smells banana and some citrus. Yeasty alcohol aroma. Nice weissbeer tastes typical of the style. Not a ton of depth nor as much yeast funk as I like. Hit the spot.

Marstonlad (395) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. A pale yellow color with medium-sized frothy head. Aroma has wheaty maltiness, a solid fruit ester character that features banana more than citrus, for instance, and some spiciness - nice package, all in all. Taste has some initial sweetness and has plenty of fresh fruitiness; malts provide the backbone. Cloves and a hint of bubblegum add depth. Very smooth palate with a body that is nearly medium in strength; moderate carbonation. Very refreshing to drink, quality hefeweizen.

Bottle. Huge white, long lasting head, some lace. Head lasts to the bottom. Hazy pale yellow. Floral yeasty aroma. Wide taste, typical weissbier.

BitchPls (510) - FINLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Hazy yellow beer with a huge white foam. Grass, citrus and yeast on the nose. Soft carbonation. Sweet honey notes. No bitterness. This is a soft beer and quite simple tasting. Still good and refreshing even. No flavor sticks out: it’s not quite banana, it’s not quite yeast and it’s not quite citrus but a soft combination those three.

Couleur jaune trouble, forte mousse blanche. Nez fruité banane, levure et blé assez leger. Gout fruité banane avec levures et note d’épices, fin assez douce, bien rafraichissante.
