2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had this as König Ludwig Weissbier Leicht. The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Starts mild, modest fruity, the finish modest sourish, a bit like a non alcohol-beer. Not really good!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma has some notes of herby yeast and tropical fruits. The flavour is quite thin - and the beer is really thin on the mid-palate - with some notes of herby yeast and topical fruits. Quite boring but more exciting than your normal 3.5%-lager beer.

½L bottle from Coop Konsum, Kosta. Pours cloudy yellow with beige head. Sweet aroma. Some yeast in the bottle. Crisp flavour. Not bad, if you’re stuck in Sweden.

Bottle from Svinesund.
Hazy hefe, nice moth feel. Wheat, cereals, lemon crispness in the finish. Light and thin, but I have had full strength weissbiers far worse than this one!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml bottle. Dark amber. Light cloudiness. Tall off-white head. Light maltiness and a little caramel. Notes of bread and wheat. Smooth texture with clean hop bitterness which makes the finish crisp. Little fruitness to be found. Light-bodied. Quite nice, but neutral.

Bottle. Bought at Hemköp, Ryd, Linköping. Hazy yellow, rich but quickly disappearing head. Banana and metal aroma. Sweetish flavor, some banana, some metal, quite alot of bad things going on in this beer.

Bottle. Thanks to larsniclas. Was named König Ludwig Weissbier Leicht, but it should be the same. Hazy yellow color, huge white head. Yeasty, malty aroma with some banana. Quite mild fruity flavor with some hops showing after a while. A bit thin, but quite ok to be a beer with low alcohol.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(50 cl bottle from grocery store "Hemköp")
On March 9, 2008
Slight shady pale yellow color, huge lasting bubbly white head. Vegetable, mostly cucumber (weird?), some banana and metallic scent. Scent is very weak though. Watery malty taste, some esters. Taste is also very weak. Thin spritzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Metallic aftertaste.
I could imagine having this as a refreshing drink on a summer day if driving, but not as a substitute for a stronger (or better) wheat beer.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Big coarse white head. Opaque hazy light yellow body with floaties. Flat herbal yeasty aroma with mealy tobacco and marzipan notes. Sweetish papery herbal taste with yeasty cardboard and marzipan notes. Feels unclean in the mouth. This was unpleasant. Poured out the rest. (0.5l bottle. BBD 2008-07-17.)

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2009 Bottled.
Hazy yellow colour with big frothy head. Banana esters and bubblegum aroma, with a sourish twist. Little dough as well. Very light bodied and milky acidic. Big on Co2 and low on phenols and malt. Notes of canned fruits here.
Earlier Rating: 7/12/2007 Total Score: 1.9
Cloudy dark orange colour with creamy head. Bit papery aroma with mackerel suggestions along with banana esters. Light bodied and low on the phenols but they are there in the shape of tin or any metal. Mackerel is noticed in aroma as well. Big on the Co2, as it should be. Being a German Hefeweizen, some things aint what they should be due to the low alcohol.
