3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating for König Ludwig Weiss
Poured murky, thick and wheaty with a thin white head. Surprised by the amount of maltiness in the aroma as opposed to the requisite yeast and banana. Instead I found a bit of caramel and breadiness (raw and baked) with some alcohol that invaded the sinuses. Started sweet and full-flavored with a mild, sour fruit ending, rather like plums. Mouthfeel was creamy yet dry while the finish was slightly chalky and astringent. I’m really glad my wife likes a good weiss otherwise I may have missed out on this one.

Konig Ludwig Weiss:
Pours a yellowish color with good head and some lacing. Aroma had hints of fruit but, as always my nose failed to pick out what it was. Taste was a bit weak but, wasn’t bad overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Konig Ludwig Weiss. Typical weiss aroma with notes of banana with a mild splash of clove. Transparent golden color with a decent small white head. Start is nice and sweet with bananas and cloves. Middle is nice and milky. Finishes with a twinge of carbonation. A nice, run of the mill Hefe that was only $5.50 for a 6er. I’d buy this again.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma is slightly more peppery than most hefes and a little less sweet. Body has some good clove and banana yeastiness well balanced with crystal malt and German hops. Very smooth drinking and refreshing, a decent hefeweizen.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Konig Ludwig Weiss) - Pours clear, golden with lasting head. Virtually no aroma. Creamy banana flavor lasts long, turning crisp. On the lighter side of a good weiss beer. Very clean aftertaste. Overall, very appealing.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (labelled as Konig Ludwig Weiss). Pours hazy and golden-orange, like a good hefe should. Aroma of citrus, banana, horseblanket and some wheat. The sour-mustiness was unexpected but welcome. Tart citrus and wheat dominate the flavor across the tongue. There’s also some (good) sourness and some spices (clove mostly) lingering in the background. The spices pick up steam at the back of your throat as does a refreshing dryness that begs you to take another sip. As it warms, banana and sweet citrus start to present themselves. This is a great hefe (although I have to admit that I am a big hefe fan) and one that I’ll seek out again. Thanks go out to my father for finding this one.

Fantastic aroma with grape and GOOD yeast, Creamy excellent lasting head, acitic in taste, but average finish. You can feel grapefruit both when you smell lokk and taste this good weissbeer.
