2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 Pleasant but in general an uninspiring hefeweizen. +++Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle. Label says Konig Ludwig Weiss. Pours a light amber color with some floaters and a medium sized white head. The scent is wheaty and yeasty. The flavor is slightly sour wheat. A light toasted flavor lingers. There is a slightly "off" taste I can not identify.

Tested as Konig Ludwig (alias)Light gold in color (straw), nice head,Aroma= nice smooth esters/ soft banana prevails. Palate = medium lt. Good carbonation. A well balanced weissbeir! yeast does not over drive this beer.
I would buy it again.

Hazy pale straw colour with a large mostly lasting white head. Banana and cloves feature mainly in the aroma. Not heaps of flavour but some spice upfront then some soft banana and vanilla finishing with a little coriander and hints of orange peel. Medium body and a creamy texture. Enjoyable german hefeweizen.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2005 Yet another rating on this one. The body is a dark a cloudy gold. It has a decent white head. The aroma is subtle pear and banana with a hint of clove. The taste is bubblegum and some light clove. There is also a some banana peel. A decent hefe.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent Heffe. Notes of bananna and fruit on a golden hazy body witha white smallish head. Yeasty aroma. Initial sweetness with a crisp and dryer finish. Enjoyable if not spectacular.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium hazy honey with a smaller than expected lasting snowy white head. Faint metallic and plastic wafts through stronger stale sourdough. Medium light body for a German wheat. No use by date - I suspect this is far from fresh. Medium light stale bitter hops, medium light grapefruit zest sour, lightly sweet with hint of banana. Soft moderately bitter finish.

dmit I bumped my numbers up a bit as I am presuming that this was a tad old (clue: ON SALE). Wasn't the least bit bad at all, just somewhat lacking in certain factors. And I do think that weissbiers tend to be much better fresh. It was rather well appreciated though as I consumed directly outside the store on a beautiful day as I was getting impatient for the rest of my party to finish shopping.

Mainstream weissbier, was a negativ surprice. Not because it is a bad weissbier, but because it was not better.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy bronze with a big, long lasting foamy head. This weiss is pretty light on for everything. There is slight aroma flavour and finish of coriander and citrus. More intensity required.
