Buen sabor, refrescante y audaz. No tan consistente como Paulaner o Franziskaner, aunque más ligera. Le falta un poco de sabor al final.

Piepenhenrich (594) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
My favorite Hefeweizen from the bottle. König Ludwig = Prinzregent Luitpold. Has all the features a Hefeweizen should have: Opaque yellow-golden, big, lasting head, flavors of grain, yeast and a tender note of banana. Perfection!

cattaneopapa (410) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2017
500ml bottle from LCBO. 5.5% alc./vol. Pours a clear golden colour with four fingers of white head. Aromas of bread and bananas. Taste matches the aroma. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Much lighter tasting than your usual weisse. Not bad at all.

simontomlinson (525) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2017
Creamy white head stayed on a hazy orange coloured body. Orange & yeast aroma. Medium bodied, creamy & smooth. Bitter/Sweet citrus, yeast, spices & banana tastes with a tangy finish

geolgau (361) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - AUG 11, 2017
Aroma: yeast and sour dough profile. Wet grains, ripe bananas, spices. Taste is faint lemon zest, spicy coriander, bananas, sour dough. Medium-light body, good carbonation. Refreshing, above average weizen.

Freaky_tiki (1303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2017
Bottle from LCBO. I was at a local brewpub -- Eastbound Brewing -- last night & made the mistake of ordering their bland hefe. This bottle comes as a relief. Beautiful pour, with a hazy egg yolk yellow with a two finger creamy cap on top. Rich wheat, smooth banana notes, very subtle clove. Carbonation is a tad flaccid. Smooth hot summer session starter.

Sjohnh (993) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2017
Light gold, slightly cloudy, plenty of white head. Medium body. Really good aroma with banana, clove, peppery spice, caramel. Flavour on the sweeter side for the style but acceptably so.

Apariencia típica de una weissbier, con espuma blanca y densa que disminuye hasta un dedo de grosor y aguanta hasta el final. Su color es amarillo intenso y es turbia. Gran cantidad de burbujas finas que no paran de subir, en boca no se nota tanto la carbonatación. El aroma es fuerte a los cereales (trigo y cebada) con sutiles notas a plátano y a cítricos. Lo que más me ha gustado de esta cerveza es el buen cuerpo que tiene: no es ni muy pesada como otras de su estilo, ni es demasiado ligera, lo cual es una gran ventaja. En boca se siente la carbonatación, con sabores a pan, ligero plátano y limón, donde sobretodo destaca el dulzor de los cereales. Una gran weissbier, sin llegar a la altura de las mejores, pero muy recomendable.

500ml bottle. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a three finger off-white cap. Very unique nose for a hefeweizen. Caramel, light apple notes, banana pudding with aromas that seem more "spiced Christmas ale" than hefeweizen. Cinnamon, clove, and even faint note of gingerbread. It smells fantastic. Taste wise, heavy carbonation and medium sweet with banana notes up front, light orange peel, faint clove, and a little bit of spice on the tongue that leads into maltier notes, clove, yeast, more spice on the tongue, with some mineral notes in the finish. This is really solid. I would totally buy it again. I’m kind of surprised by the low ratings.

3.1
Metalchopz (3447) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Pours a cloudy golden-amber colour with a creamy cap, decent lasting with some soapy lacing. Cereal grain smell with some rye notes and darker malts. Some sweetness comes out of it eventually. The wheat balances the darker malts as flavours, and hints of banana are felt. Smooth finish, but some richness gets a little too heavy overall. Maybe need to chug cold next one.

3.7
fkoolen (1295) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2017 Bottle @ Osteria Dell'Orsa, Bologna. Cloudy golden straw colour, creamy white head. Nicely creamy (!) malts, banana, light citrus. Good body, medium carbonation.
