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!

chickenflea (350) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2011
(Review stolen from Marsiblursi because I agree with it perfectly) Pours hazy yellow golden with a creamy head. The aroma is of doughy white bread, lots of banana esters, light clove, light pepper, wheat and flowers. The flavour is light sweet and light bitter with a fantastic crisp and full carbonation. Tones of wheat, dough, light grass/flowers, light clove, light banana. The mouthfeel is round and smooth. Tiny acidic and dry finish. Medium bodied.

ordybill (698) - 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 (4877) - 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 (606) - 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 (93) - 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 (330) - 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!

Chopper925 (296) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of banana and cloves, typical. Sweet taste, with a decent bitterness, bit sour. Medium mouthfeel, fresh carbonation. Decent malty, lightly fruity aftertaste. Refreshing and pleasant, nice.

A) Bananas, some clove and some breadiness. A) Spot-on for a German wheat. Cloudy, dark gold. T) Sweet and notes of the wheat and yeast are present. clean finish. P) Full bodied, creamy . And there’s that awesome weissbier carbonation with the pop it brings. O) A+ sample of the style. Excellent
