3.6/5 rDev -1.9%
A: pours a pale hazy yellow with a thin skim of white bubbles for a head and large clear bubbles covering every inch of glass.
S: bananas, clove and allspice dominate the nose with subtly notes of malt and wheat.
T: same bananas but not as much spiciness as in the nose. Well rounded malt characters, basic malt(crystal) and wheat. A sweeter almost candy like banana lingers on the tongue accompanied with some green apple.
MF: very smooth, effervescent and refreshing. Light body and not to filling.
If I wouldn't have stumbled upon this at a beer bar I would have never known it exists. I'll keep an eye open for it but will not be activly searching for it.

3.63/5 rDev -1.1%
Pours a hazy pale yellow orangish color with a one finger head which gives way to a little bit of lacing. Sediment was present in the bottom of the glass. The aroma is of yeast, banana, and a small hint of clove. The taste has a yeast backbone with a big banana flavor, there are hints of apricot and clove also present. The mouthfeel is slightly thick with minimal carbonation. Overall the drinkability is high, it is a very light beer, with nothing to dislike. It is one of the easiest drinks i have ever had. Solid, but the weak alcohol content makes sense for the drinkability.

3.55/5 rDev -3.3%
The colour is orange-yellow; the liquid hazy. The high foam is airy and yellowish - it sinks slowly leaving some lacing.
The smell is sweet-sour. Notes of banana candy, dough and tropical fruits. A little thin, but all things expected are there.
The taste is a bit earthy; I found notes of banana peels, kiwi fruits and apricot jam. There are balancing notes of sour dough and yeast. The aftertaste includes flavours of wheat, fruit candy and a fragile bitterness.
The carbonation is strong. The liquid is almost thin.
Wheat beers under 3.5% ABV aren't too common (in Sweden, those can be sold in supermarkets) and this one is a really good one.

König Ludwig Weissbier Leicht, ABV: 2.9%.
500 ml bottle, at Hemköp (I don't remember the price).
A: The beer pours a hazy yellow- to orange-coloured liquid, and gives a big, white, foamy head that leaves some retention.
S: An almost citric aroma, with notes of caramel, honey, apples, bananas and lemon candy.
T: Candy-like flavours, with notes of caramel, honey, lemons, bananas and yeast - yet it's not that sweet, but kind of dry (I like that).
M: Light in most aspects, but with notable carbonation - great when you're really thirsty.
O: To a novice on wheat beers (like me) this is as good as any stronger alternative when I need to cool off, or just cure my dry mouth. It's lighter perhaps, body-wise, but not bad at all - and I don't always need to get drunk.
