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!

König Ludwig Weissebier. Beautiful wheat and clove aroma. Pours a cloudy straw colour with no head. Lots of yeast sediment. Taste is nice but not as godd as other weisses I've had. Taste of malt and some citrus with a bit of a sour finish.

Chunky seidment bottomed out in this beer, interesting. A very tastey hefe, not too much banana and clove like the rest. Sweet and refreshing, full of flavor.

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2003
A lovely wheat with a medium orange (cloudy) color and large, fluffy white head. A very nice aroma accompanies. Taste is lightly sweet and quite nice.

bierkoning (10157) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2003
Tierpark Nordhorn, straight from the bottle after a 70 miles cycling tour. Banana, grapes and some herbal notes. Refreshing, not surprisingly. Fairly yeasty, but the emphasis is on the fruitiness. Some yoghurt. Decent weizen.

A beautiful pouring beer, nice head and wheat like body. Fragrance was quite nice. Taste is very pleasant although not especially substantial. All in all I enjoyed this beer quite a lot. Hefe Wiezens are almost always highly drinkable.

jsquire (3425) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Cloudy yellow with a whipped egg white head out of the bottle. Sweet, thin nose and very soft mouthfeel. Traditional German wheat beer banana/clove spice flavor. Exactly what I expected from a German wheat and nothing more.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2003
The aroma of bananas, with just a slight hint of cloves. Hazy yellow with a textbook prefect never ending head, not that that is unusual in a Weissbier. A little sweet and sour, medium mouth fell but the overall effect is dry and thirst quenching. A good example of this style a little on the light side but flavorful enough.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2003
A cloudy dark straw color with a white head that is slightly frothy. The aroma is of banana and wheats. The flavor of bananas has some bitterness and lots of wheaty aftertaste.

joet (2158) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUL 11, 2003
Interesting, it has all the hallmark signs of a true weiss -- light clove and banana aroma, pillowy head (almost), but almost no creaminess to the body. The feel is barely there at all. That says it all.

Sigmund (5024) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2003
(500 ml bottle, under its alias König Ludwig Weissbier). Cloudy blond colour, large head. Lovely aroma of ripe bananas and cloves. Light bodied, some cloves in the flavour, refreshing. Like most weissbiers a short aftertaste, but what there is, is good.
