3.45/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma has lemon candy, sourdough and unripe banana. Taste is soft with wheat sweetness and light floral hop notes on the finish. Medium to light body with medium carbonation. Decent for a low ABV beer.

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.

3.56/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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 +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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 -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

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.
