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!

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2003 I know of this beer as Koing Ludwig Same bottle even. Anyhow fantastic beer. Get your lemon out and drink up. light and tasty Weiss beer is the best. Supreme quality a bit like the regular Hacker pschorr weiss

My favorite weiss beer. Simple but the perfect blend of aroma and flavor. Not the most complex weiss beers but certainly a tremndous brew with strong flavors.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 Pours a lemon honey color w/ a medium sized, semi creamy froth that slowly reduces to full lacing. Aroma is bright w/ musty boot leather. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. A slightly earthy style weissbier with mellow citrus rind fruit and a smooth finish. Well ballanced yet beholding a complexity not found in most hefeweizen brews. I really like the pronounced leathery aroma and flavor. Reminds me of wet bird feathers. PerfectIy carbonated, good hang time.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz. bottle into a weizen glass. The body was cloudy and had a cool, golden yellow color with visible carbonation. Its head is thick, creamy and bright white in color. It slowly fades to a thin cap that hangs on till the last sip and leaves nice lace on the glass. There is an inviting aroma of wheat, clove, fruity yeast and banana. The flavor has a good wheat malt base with fruity yeast that has notes of banana. Mellow herbal hops, spicy clove and a touch of lemon round out the flavor on a smooth creamy palate with a medium body and lively carbonation. It finishes somewhat dry with some lingering wheat and dry earthy tones. This is a great example of a German hefeweizen. The balance is spot on for the style and it is wonderfully refreshing and very easy to drink.

Sampled a bottle in Hohenschwangau, Bavaria from a bottle into a stein. A wonderful beer all round and exactly why I love this style of beer so much. The head was great and creamy, the smell & taste were excellent with lots of banana and clove. It really did have it all, a great summery beer. I loved it.

Big white head. Cloudy yellow colour. Lovely banana aroma. Spicy taste, and a unique, salty-spicy palate. Great beer.
