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!

12 oz. bottle. Very small, cream colored head. Bright golden color. Light aroma of bread and yeast. Lots of carbonation in this one. Light yeast and citrus flavors with a hint of spiciness at the end. Very drinkable, decent hefeweizen.

Sammy (9322) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2005
aroma of wheat, nice big initial head, maybe because it got shook aorund on the flight home. Easy on tongue creaminess, medium mouthfeel. A good brew, a decent represenattive of its style. Appropriately carbonated.

bmxutos (161) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - SEP 20, 2005
Bottle, 50cl. Pours a cloudy and pale yellow liquid, with a nice white foam, rapidly diminishing. Aroma is moderately malty with notes of citrus and some other fruits, probably apple or something.... Aroma is again fruity. Very refreshing and drinkable, not the best weiss that i’ve had but neverthelesss a good one.

ALLOVATE (2549) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2005
One I have looked forward to tasting for a while now. Have been fascinated by the story of ’Mad’ king Ludwig and his heir to the throne, Luitpold, for some time now. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a weissbier glass. Hazy, in fact almost opaque, pale golden straw body with a compact and dense, rocky white head that stuck firmly to the glass and left rings down the sides. Strong banana, yeast and peppery spices in the aroma, quite tart, with a good lemon rind and almost musty grain balance. Quite light in body and lively in carbonation with a strong vanilla, wheat and yeast mix across the tongue, bananas and the lightest hint of sour lemons in the back before a smooth citric and yeasty swallow that remained fresh, without becoming gluggy. Zesty and quite sweet once it relaxed a little and began to warm, it continued to cross my tongue with such ease that before I knew it was gone. This was actually a lovely wheat beer that would go down a treat in bulk, as personally, its subtlety seemed to pay off. Refreshing, easy drinking. (König Ludwig Weissbier, 50cL, BBE 08/05)

MoritzF (8676) - GERMANY - AUG 29, 2005
(bottle) Hazy yellow colour with a big rocky, slowly lacing foam. Fruity (apricot, banana) and yeasty aroma with a touch of cloves. Slight sweet flavour, light to medium body. Malty and yeasty taste with a subtle banana fruitiness and a clove-spicy and slight citrus-fruity finish of medium length. Aromatic and solid thirst quencher with decent character, that only lacks a bit body.

Keeper (252) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 28, 2005
Only one white beer Tht I don’t like. Lemon in aroma and excessive acidity. L’unica birra bianca a non piacermi. Limone in aroma e una eccessiva acidità.

From the bottle, a head that starts out big, then falls with lace on the glass. Banana and clove aroma and flavors. Good yeasty nose. Nice champagne like carbonation. Tingly. In my area it’s under the Konig Ludwig label. Free glass with purchase. Good summer thirst quencher.

50 cl Bottle. Yeast in bottom. Very nice creamy head over the yellow body. Very nice aroma of wheat and yeast. Good tastefull beer with a refreshing aftertaste. An overall a good hefeweizen.

Has the basic Hefeweizen malty-banana aroma and flavor. An ok Hefe but for an Old Country import it’s rather simplistic, with few nuances. One thing is that the carbonation is excellent (lots of tiny bubbles) and the finish is especially soft.
