2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Good but not great - rather bland for a wheat. Very Watery. Nice clove presence, but nothing to go along withit. I would prefer Franziskaner, Hacker-Pschorr or Paulaner to this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy straw color with a fine puffy head. Grainy aroma with some citrus. Light to medium in body, mildly sweet and bready with a tangy note and a very light finish. Refreshing but sort of bland.

Hazy, pale yellow. I could taste a bit yeast and some hints of banana, but the body was pretty watery, so there wasn´t much to taste. There are many better Weizens out there.

Had this for the first time in a dive in Milwaukee, and liked it enough to hunt it down to do a serious rating at home. This is about as pale colored a beer as I've ever had, and not cloudy at all, which is unusual for a weiss. Sweet citrus and wheat smell. Citrus flavor, slightly spicy. Nice little kick in the aftertaste. A very good beer.

Had this on tap at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati. Poured a yellow color with a tall head that stuck around for a while and left some lacing on the glass. The aroma was mostly wheaty with some malty hints and a hint of lemon. The carbonation stuck around in the flavor, making it a fun drink. The main part of the flavor was wheaty with some spiciness to back it up. It is a very smooth drink and the taste is pretty enjoyable, but being at Oktoberfest, I strongly preferred the Warsteiner.

Very nice hefeweizen. A nice balance between crisp citrus flavor, mild cloves, and dry wheat. A touch on the sweet side but all in all quite good.

I'm reviewing a bottle of Konig Ludwig Weiss which I'm told is the same brew as this one here.
Recently Erdinger has dissapeared from our local shelves due to some legal battle with the distributer. Almost as quickly, this beer has seemed to show up everywhere. It's being distributed in 6 packs of 11.2oz brown bottles. This is one of the cloudiest weizens I've had, deep golden and similar in color to the Schneider Weisse but not quite as dark. Produced a decent looking head which settled down to a thin film that lingered the entire session. The aroma is big on this one, clove and banana with banana being more up front. Mouthfeel is full and pleasant. Flavor is nice with a good wheat malt flavor that is spicy and a bit citrusy. Banana is noticable more as it warms. The flavor here is similar to the Ayinger with a bigger banana flavor. I'd say this is a good replacement to the Erdinger except it has a bigger flavor and is spicier, which I'd favor but some Erdinger fans may not care for.

Hey, this stuff taste like beer. Yea, I guess I probably shouldn't rate beers when I am on my 12th or so, my comments get even more bizzare then usual.
