AKA Konig Ludwig. A nice wheat - an almost cakey aroma with a classic wheat taste - a trace of cinnamon. Pretty look with a fluffy head.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into Hacker-Pschorr weisse glass. Big fluffy white head and hazy unfiltered yellow. Has a big banana flavor with a spicey clove finish. I added a lemon wedge for the hell of it. This is a real tasty and refreshing hefeweiss. Not as prominent on the wheat as some Bavarian weisse. Comparable to Hacker-Pschorr.

Mmm! Fruity and citrusy, major bananas. Hazy white-gold with a fizzy white head. Not bad at all.

The aroma has banana, clove, and spices. Color is a cloudy yellow with a decent white head. Initially the flavor is slighlty fruity and grows to a spicey dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured with some head, but nothing ridiculous. The aroma was strikingly strong, bananas, spices, citrus all coming through strong. In the flavor, bananas and spices were strongest, although this one could have been a bit richer. A very good beer, and an above average hefe, but not the best of the hefe group. Would drink again, no doubt.

a very good and enjoyable german wheat but seemed just a tad, and i mean a tad, not up to its potential of a full hefe...maybe because i had a weihenstapher(sp) yesterday...so...great head....yellow gold..good flavour, enjoyable and a great sessioner.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught (Welcome Hotel, Bamberg): Loads of banana, actually quite sweet. Medium bodied, but flat and lifeless. Hazy gold in colour white a white head. Nice fruits and spice, but lacks the carbonation expected with a weizen.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is one good looking beer. Creamy head upon pouring, settling down to a persistent thin head; almost dense. Cloudy marmalade orange with layers of cloudiness, forcing a change in colour between pale orange and the deeper orange. Nose has good depth of spice and aromastic coriander, ‘feels’ heavy. Well balanced palate, a lighter lighter or elegant than the nose would suggest but regardless shows all the right notes – spice, cloves, slightly liquored. Needs a touch more power on the finish but not a deal breaker. A great educational beer for those not familar with the genre.
