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: MAR 2, 2007 Bottle marked Konig Ludwig Weiss from St. Joe Hy-Vee poured into weizen - Pours clear gold with a big frothy white head; Lots of lemon, malt, wheat and bread to the nose; Lemon, sweet malt, wheat, clove, CO2, and a little lemon tart at the end on the initial taste; Bread, clove, and citrus aftertaste; Watery side of medium body; Nice carbonation; Love the Konig Ludwig name. Had a horrible first pour, but the second was much better. Run of the mill weiss with an awesome name, especially if you’re into the music if Richard Wagner.

The one I drank was labeled "König Ludwig Weisse". Cloudy yellow with a fruity aroma. Fairly light in flavor and body, with a tangy finish. Pleasant but unremarkable.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours nice hazy straw gold color, with an inch or more of off-white head. Lots of yeast in the swirl and dump. Head reduces to a blotchy film over time. A little bit of lacing but not a whole lot. Soft over-ripe banana, clove, and yeast in the initial aroma. The clove scent is subtle but still noticeable throughout the glass. Strong wheat, yeast, and clove flavor - pretty sweet and very nice. Medium body, softly carbonated. Yeast and clove in the aftertaste.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 bottle - This is a very straightforward hefeweizen. It has a light, yeasty aroma. The flavor is mild. It’s too mild even for the style. While the flavor is decent, there’s certainly nothing offensive here, and it is refreshing, it’s too bland and thin. There are far better hefeweizens around.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2009 On tap in Berlin: Nice weissbier, with a more spicy and powerful falvor than much other. The banana and the (burnt) wheat taste is very obvious, and it makes the beer seem less watery than other weissbier at the same time. The aftertaste isn’t marked very powerful with hops, however, we must remember that this is a weissbier, and all in all it suits the beer very well. Not a beer with lacks on any point, but it could be more exiting to drink it...
