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!

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.

Color amarillo anaranjado con cierta turbidez, buena capa de espuma que perdura, aromas a plátano, fruta cítrica, levadura y flores, en boca es suave y refrescante un poco ácida y fácil de beber, notas a especias y pan con cuerpo ligero y carbónico medio, buena representante del genero weissbier.

martjoobolut (542) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 26, 2014
0,5L bottle, BB 17.12.14. Pours hazy orange with white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, very fruity, orange, wheat, and yeast. Taste is sweet, sour, very faint bitter, fruits, wheat, citrus and some spices. Body and finish are rather thin. Overall: a little bit too watery, but looks like weizen should; taste and aroma are also above average.

Foffern (1150) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a orange color with a large, creamy, white foam head. The aroma is extremely fruity with notes of banana, spices, wheat and lychee. The taste is sweet with a touch of wheat and pale malt, pear and banana, and some spices. Mouth feel is where it should be, soft and smooth, and the bitterness is low. This wheat beer has a great flavor, but a little light. Still a solid and balanced wheat beer.

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.
