COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is Royal Barvarian Hefeweizen. Why are the Bavarian Royal Family and King Ludwig so important to brewing history? The Bavarian Royal Family had sole rights to brewing Hefe-Weizen on Bavaria for over 200 years. No wonder we are the leading experts on wheat beers!

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2005
Pours an orange cloudy colour with *totally* disappearing white head. Sweet aroma, sweet taste. Not very complex, but very very drinkable.

jercraigs (8290) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2005
Bottle. Pours a barely hazy gloden yellow body with a big creamy white head. Aroma is yeasty, very muted banana and citrus. Nice wheaty tartness. Very quaffable but nothing like I had hoped, seems almost filtered, lacking much of the yeasty chewiness and flavours I’d expect in a hefe. Nice medium bodyied palate but again it is lacking from what it could be. Very nice beer that unfortunately paled in comparison to my expectations. Thanks for the bottle Joe McPhee.

MiP (14001) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2005
Draught. Yeasty, fruity aroma. Cloudy golden colour. Big white creamy head. Banana ester flavour. Refreshing citruslike flavour, slightly mouldy.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 29, 2004
The beer dispenses from the 330ml brown bottle a limpid gold and after decanting the beer pours, a beclouded yellow gold with the head is bright, white and creamy in texture, size is modest and after its desiccation, the lace forms a thin coating upon the glass. Nose has a bit of yeast and is backed up by sweet malt, crisp and clean, start is slightly sweet with a decent grain profile and the top light. Finish is mild in its acidity, the hops sparing in their spiciness, dry aftertaste lingers long, a drinkable beer, and one for those days when a heavy beer will not do.

Hmm, interesting. Yup, its a wheatbeer. Whats the deal with that? Do people really enjoy this style? Well, I dont and I think thats why I dont have too much to say about this one.Had it on tap at the blind pig in champaign Illinois, they use its other name, Konig Ludwig Weiss.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Draft under the name Konig Ludwig - A great Weiss beer. This beer was excellent with a yeast, wheat, sweet flavor without that typical old wheat aftertaste. Could have drinken all day long. Great with or without a meal.

steview (1035) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 24, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2004 bottled as Konig Ludwig at Bob Chin’s in Wheeling, IL / darkish yellow, not cloudy, airy white head that dissipitated rather quickly. sweet, light, typical... then a good lemony flavor dominates this brew. it’s refreshing and it went very well with my tuna sashimi.

Eructoblaster (3259) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
Bottle - 500ml. Hazy golden color. Its thick foamy head tends to dissipate quickly. Nice yeasty, fruity and spicy aroma. Taste is quite decent but lacks complexity. Dominated by yeasty flavors. Acceptable citrusy finish. Good Hefeweizen, but not among the best.

empiman (21) - shawnee, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 21, 2004
Golden cloudy appearance, initial smell hinted of honey, maybe banana like. Thick head dissapated quickly, Initial taste hit me with something; can’t put a finger on it. Not bad after that, no bitter aftertaste. Tasted Koening Ludwig Bottle, not Luitpold. Altogether a nice beer.
