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!

Ungstrup (29828) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2003
An unclear dark yellow beer with a flat head. The aroma is a lovely wheaty aroma with a slight sweetness to it. The flavor is slightly flat wheaty flavor with an OK sweetness but too little wheat. It ends on a weak bitterness. A really refreshing summer beer - but other than that a boring too flat too thin beer. Enjoy it in the sun.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Comes as "König Ludwig Weissbier". Hazy golden with a tall, white head. Distinct yeasty aroma. Medium body, lightly sweet banana and yeast accents - and then basically nothing else but a heavy carbonation. A rather poor Hefe. 140308

Bottled (as König Ludwig Weissbier). Hazy orange colour, big white head. Typical weissbier nose with fruits, wheat and yeast. Same in flavour. Not too sweet though, and wellbalanced. Long yeasty aftertaste. Pleasant Hefeweizen.

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.

Bamberg Bash, Day 1. Train bottle swig. As ’Konig Ludwig Weissbier Hell’. Hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is light and semi dry and semi crisp. Mild tangy lemon and a medium sweet banana tone underneath. Finishes semi dry. Not bad.

Cloudy blond color. An initial wave of banana aroma, disappearing quite quickly. Spicy taste, but poor in all the rest, with a too simple final.
