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.

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.
