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!

Cloudy amber body with a soapy white head. Banana, bread, spice, and a touch of citrus make up the engaging aroma. Mild and creamy on the palate with decent carbonation. Citrus entry fades to a nice spicy finish with banana and clove. Very good hefeweizen.

Shain (145) - ISRAEL - SEP 29, 2015
On tap, 330 ml. Pours light yellow with golden tint. Lightly opaque. Head is thick and white. Mouth feel is creamy with strong carbonation and medium-light body. Tastes nicely bitter with gentle malty sweetness. Starts bitter but after taste is sweet. Flavors of gentle clove, malt, very wheaty, bready, light vegetal hops. Nice, crisp, refreshing and tasteful.

sloshgator (581) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Drank as Konig Ludwig Weissbier which is one of the most dead-on Hefeweizen’s I’ve had. Cloudy yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Fresh aroma of bananas and cloves. Taste is more bananas and cloves and very refreshing. Konig Ludwig hits all the right notes for a tasty Hefe!

mrjez (115) - Osaka, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2015
From 500ml bottle. L: pours a slightly cloudy gold with a tonne of tiny bubbles and a big foamy head, nice lacing. S: really quite subdued and uninteresting. The usual wheat and yeast notes, a little banana, but lacking any spice. T: like the aroma, it tastes pretty simple, nice but falling away to a watery end where there should’ve been spice. F: good spritz, light-bodied and refreshing. O: plenty of others readily available have stronger flavour and more complexity on the nose.

ordybill (765) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Poured from an 11 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The aroma has a big fruit aroma, very nice. The appearance is a murky straw color with a fairly large white head. Taste is banana and bread with some spices. A very good flavor. Overall this is a really good beer.

On tap at the 2015 German Bierfest. Cloudy yellow gold body topped by a lively head. Moderate banana and light clove for style. Light but not quite watery body. Lively, medium carbonation.

thornecb (4923) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Pours a slightly haze gold into a shaker. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface. Lemony yeast aromas. Soft with bread and yeast upfront turning to mild earthy hay in the medium length finish. Nice to have a weissbier that does not taste like an overripe banana.

KW92 (675) - WARSAW, POLAND - AUG 6, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa jasnozłota, . Piana drobna, wysoka, obfita, trwała. Oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Słodki zapach. Banan dominuje. Przyjemna zbożowość. W tle guma balonowa. Akcenty goździków i przypraw.
SMAK: Tutaj z kolei dominuje goździk. Dobra podbudowa słodowa. Orzeźwiająca kwaśność. Goryczka niska, krótka.
OGÓLNIE: Piana kapitalna! Aromat słodki - tak jak lubię, choć mimo wszystko brakuje goździka. Dobry pszeniczniak.

madnorwegian (99) - FRANCE - AUG 6, 2015
Bright golden hazy color. Fluffy white head. Not much of the full hefeweizen aromas. Nice full body though and soft fruity flavors, orange, banana.

metalspice (355) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2015
Gult og tåkete med fint hvitt skum. Lukter banan, brød og krydder. Fyldig smak med banan og friskt gress. Veldig godt!
