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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
