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!

BrewGoblin (500) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JAN 30, 2015
I wouldn’t buy this again but it certainly isn’t a bad beer. It is a solid "3" and pretty refreshing. Where the "natural cloudiness" comes in, I don’t know, the body is a clear as a golden bell with a foamy white head. Herbal and lightly spicy hops mingle with honey, citrus and sweet cereal in both aroma and flavour. There are also some light vegetal hints hiding in the back. A nice looking brew with some tasty bits and a dry, zazzy mouthfeel.

tdubs92 (19) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 26, 2015
Pleasant fruity aroma. Hazy straw colour that dissipates into a white thin head and then into a tiny ring. Looks better than tastes. Hint of wheat with a tad of citrus. Not the nicest tasting beer but looks really good in a glass.

WABeerFiend (271) - - JAN 16, 2015
Best by date of 08.15.14. Poured from a pint bottle into a weizen glass on 03.25.14. A: Straw yellow. Yeast at top. 1/4 finger head. S: Lemon, wheat, clove. T: Lemon dominates. Orange, wheat are there too. Banana, sweet clove are more subtle. M: Creamy smooth. O: This had a very sweet aftertaste, which I liked. The flavors were strong too, compared to more watery hefs. I would put this into rotation if I could find it easily.

EtTuCthulhu (1178) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - DEC 20, 2014
This beer pours a cloudy dark golden color with a large white head. The aroma blends wheat, doughiness, citrus, and only a hint of banana, and the taste is mildly sweet, slightly sour, and a touch umami. The palate combines a soft carbonation, medium body, and a thick texture.
