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!

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2006
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Cloudy golden orange color with a very small amount of white head. Aroma is full of wheat and banana notes with some hints of clove and a touch of orange peel. Yeast, wheat, clove, and bananas begin the flavor with a smooth transition to a watery and wheaty middle and a finish of wheat and bananas. A bit watery at the end but not a bad beer besides.

omhper (22619) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottled (as König Ludwig Weissbier). Hazy golden, brief head. Papery banana aroma. Dryish with dense rounded mouthfeel, restrained bubblegum esters, medium body. Streamlined weizen, decent enough, but somewhat charmless. Notes of vanilla, evident wheat malt flavour.

bitbucket (2164) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 14, 2006
Botted as König Ludwig Weiss. Pours a hazy light amber with a thick white head. Aroma of lemon and spice. Light body and active carbonation. Banana, cloves and wheat in the taste with a quick and dry finish. Yup, it’s a German Hefeweizen.

Bottle, Konig Ludwig Weissbier Hell. Cloudy orange gold, thick off white head. Tangy lemon aroma, cereal/wheat. Light aroma, satisfying in mouth, more subtle lemon, over a full bodied malt/wheat combo, cereal lemon finish. Satisfying subtle beer.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow with a decent white head. Yeasty and a little bit fruity as well. Some grassy notes as well. I like hefeweizens, but this one wasn’t very good.

henrikb (1261) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2006
Draught – Hazy golden body, white head; Huge and a little vulgar nose with lots of banana, yoghurt and juice from ripe grapefruit; A little soft, a little bitter body, only little carbonation; Quite long, very aromatic finish (same aromas as nose).

Oakes (14671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2006
Hazy dull beige colour. Not much head by weizen standards. Aroma of sweat, banana, nutmeg, sour pears. Sweet & sour flavour with apple/pear notes dominating, banana sublimated and the malts come across more like icing sugar than anything else. Lifeless example marred by a misguided sense of balance, accenting all the wrong things.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 König Ludwig Weiss - Originally sampled from draught but unrated until this bottle from Uto. Straw coloured with a light cream head. Aroma of yeast and banana with a taste to match. Crisp with a light start and rich finish. A firm favorite, well suited to the bannofie pie for dessert.
