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!

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2006 Aroma is hay, dry grass and grains. Body is a light hay colored yellow and holds a firm and lasting two finger thick creamy white head. Fore is creamy bannana, yeasty, wheat flakes and sweet cream. That flavor profile carries into a slightly more bitter (though not bitter by American standards) finish. I’ve always liked this Hefe and I still do.

labeled konig ludwig weiss bought at albertsons. yeasty, banana, wheat aroma. hazy orange color with a nice large head. orange wheat and yeast flavors. not a wheaty nutty as other weisses. midish with a nice round body slight hop flavor in the end. not particularly unique.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2004
Light brown and cloudy colored. Big white head vanished fastly. Strong yeast aroma with some fruits too. Full bodied and creamy palate. Flavor starts with strong carbonation bite, ends with yeasty, banana and somehow skunky aftertaste. Basic weissbier, full body is nice but mild skunkiness in the end distracts little bit.

skaughty (647) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 7, 2004
The yellow label gave away the contents - banana! Tastes almost like a light spiced rum, with some syrup in the finish. Minimal carbonation, just kind of a "gluggy" pour. This isn’t as refreshing as it should be - given the style.

On tap at the Rathskellar in Rockford, Il in a fishbowl (48 oz I think). Nice fruitysmell with little head to show. Taste was laced with the usual banana/ fruit taste. Was a nice finishing beer for the evening. On tap as Konig Weiss

Kevin (2102) - New Mexico, USA - JUL 31, 2004
On tap at the bavarian grill. hazy yellow with a fat fluffy white head. aroma of peppered bananas. straight wheat/banana flavor, nice malt finish. leaves an apple/banana flavor that is enjoyable.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2004
(Tapped) Orange, opaque color with a small head. Mild aroma with yeast and wheat, plus a hint of banana. Some banana in the flavor, which is dryish for a weizen. Slightly stingy, medium-bodied, medium-carbonated palate. A quite smooth, but somewhat tasteless and uninteresting weizen.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Tap @ Gustav’s Vancouver, WA
Pale yellow lemonade color with a faint glimpse of mist. Nice thick creamy white head & sheets of lacing. The aroma is malty with torrified wheat & banana/clove esters, honeydew melon and a little sharp alcohol present. The flavor is full of sweet fruit & nice wheat & bavarian wheat esters. Finishes citrusy & smooth. Very nice german wheat but a bit sharp on delivery.
