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!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 Pours a lemon honey color w/ a medium sized, semi creamy froth that slowly reduces to full lacing. Aroma is bright w/ musty boot leather. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. A slightly earthy style weissbier with mellow citrus rind fruit and a smooth finish. Well ballanced yet beholding a complexity not found in most hefeweizen brews. I really like the pronounced leathery aroma and flavor. Reminds me of wet bird feathers. PerfectIy carbonated, good hang time.

Bottled (as König Ludwig Weissbier). Hazy orange colour, big white head. Typical weissbier nose with fruits, wheat and yeast. Same in flavour. Not too sweet though, and wellbalanced. Long yeasty aftertaste. Pleasant Hefeweizen.

stouby (4040) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2006
Bottle, at Benny. Light yellow with a white head, quickly gone, no lacings, unfiltered. Aroma light malty, yeasty and hoppy. Flavor light sweet and acidic/yeasty. Light body, watery, soft carbonated. I think my bottle was to old.

thewolf (11434) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2006
An acceptably weissbeer. Rather sweet but still a bitter aftertaste. Quite a lot of carbon dioxide compared to similar beers. A good thick, white head that stays for a while.

nick76 (4312) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Had this one in a bottle labeled "Konig Ludwig Weiss". The aroma is a good example of what this style of beer should smell like. It has malt, cloves, bananas, and sour kraut. The appearance is a cloudy and gold with a nice foamy head. The flavor is mildly spicy, and citrus like, while maintaining a good amount of malt and bitterness. The palate is soft and perfectly carbonated. It also has a sourness that gets you in the finish. This one is good.

Bottled. Hazy yellow. Fruity, estery nose. Medium bodied. Soft mouthfeel, low on Co2. Notes of clove and banana.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 25, 2005
On tap under the Konig Ludwig Weiss label at Blind Pig in Champaign. Contrary to other ratings, I think this is a decent weiss beer. Pours hazy gold, typical. Very nice banana clove aroma. Taste has the right amount of sweetness, with hints of cloves, vanilla, yeast. I good session wheat beer. I was expecting worse.

Found under "Konig Ludwig Weiss" label. Pours light gold with half inch head. Aroma is light with cloves and apple. Flavor is medium sweet with cloves in the aftertaste. Flavor a bit weak, but cloves add an interesting note.
