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!

12oz bottle labled Konig Ludwig Weiss - Pours cloudy golden with a tall foamy white head that stays pretty well and laces some on the weizen glass. Aroma of bannana, and a little clove. Flavor is lots of bannana, a little clove, and some yeast. Quite carbonated with a lively mouthfeel. Pretty refreshing and actually a little better than I expected it to be.

On tap at the Yardhouse in Kansas City. Golden color, hazy with lots of sediment. Mild banana and yeasty aroma. Thin head, dissipated quickly. Excellent flavor; sweet, with banana and yeast. Lots of carbonation. One of my favorites.

Bottle. I poured it over a lemon slice to add some sour. This cut down on the sweet, although the aroma still had the sweetness. The taste smacked as well of wheat very heavily. The palate was rather full for a weissbier, but not unpleasant. Overall, great in a glass over lemon, but I’d hate it straight.

Sweetish smell, also the taste. Very mildly in the taste. A good wheat beer. Mild aftertaste.

Tap(as König Ludwig Weiss)@Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen: Guess I was a bit sloshed from my sampling session at Ølbaren since I only noted a citrusy banana aroma...

GMan71 (24) - Lower Mitcham, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2006
Bottled under name Konig Ludwig Weiss. Slightly disappointed considering I have in the past enjoyed their dunkel. Weakish flavour compared to some others of the style. Just passed the best before date - may be a reason.

I thought this was a very refreshing brew. It had a somewhat lackluster appearance. Poured a cloudy light amber color with pure white head. I didn’t get any of the fruity tastes the other raters mentioned. A stronger more forceful taste than i expectred for a hefe.(My palate may not be as experienced as the others.) I really enjoyed it.

vyvvy (5473) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Pours hazy orange with a rich pillowy white head. The aroma has rich wheat with orange citrus notes, prominant banana esters and some spices. Medium body with a rich mouthfeel and good amount of carbonation. The taste starts with some citric flavors that is somewhat distracting and rich wheat. The finish has some astringency and spice. This is an okay hefe, but fall short in a few areas.
