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!

Nasty smell, nasty flavor, awful aftertatste.Prickly in the throat especially first pull.Burnt grass flavor and also nasty flavor of a rogue bacteria loose in a unsanitized batch of homebrew.Will turn your stomach upside down.

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.

oh6gdx (22638) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2006
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.

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.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2006
Hazy pale yellow, thick, creamy white head. Fruity, wheaty aroma with notes of yeast, clove and banana. Refreshing, somewhat spicy flavour with hints of ginger, ham and sugar. Medium bodied. Sweet, acidic finish.

SDalkoholic (2232) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 21, 2006
Pours somewhat cloudy with a abruption of head that soon dies out. Aroma is a light with bavarian hops, banana and wheat. Flavor is made of the same thing with a thin soapy body but all in all is easily drunk and enjoyed.

skoisirius (1845) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2006
This bottle came in under the name of "Konig Ludwig Weiss, Royal Bavarian Hefe-Weizen". It came in a beautiful six-pack from Whole Foods. The casing has this enormous castle on it. Poured a semi-cloudy and yellowish color. At first taste came a strong sense of lemon that moved into more of a honey finish. I’m not a huge Hefe-Weizen fan, but this was definitely tasty!
