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! 12.5°

Doppelganger (1389) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle, Dodgy Deli, Oxford. Pale hazy gold, smallish layer of white foam. Pleasant clove accented honey aroma. Gently spritzy yeastiness, clean wholesome bread, just a little tart nip in the finish. Restrained, refreshing, and very good.

The waiter quirky waiter described it as "Kinda like St. Pauli Girl, you’ve had St. Pauli Girl right?... I think its from Belgium" "Sure I’ll have that." 12 oz bottle from Ande’s Restaurant Chicago drank on the patio on a warm evening, perfectly refreshing. Poured hazy and orange in a small hefe glass with the König Ludwig Weiss logo. Yeasty nose banana wheat similar flavors. Creamy wheat like a hefe should be. Tasty and refreshing.

Sampled from a 12oz bottle. Hazy with a golden honey hue. Trace white head. Yeasty with the typical banana note. Lively and crisp. Mild palate. Citrus and banana. Typical...

KnutAlbert (6798) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2007
Bottled as König Ludwig Hell. A fine hefe, refreshing lemon, wheat grain and yeast. The Bavarian weisse beers are amazing in the way you feel the echoes of the raw materials in the aroma of the beer.

molassesfan (202) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2007
On tap at the Taphouse in Hampton. Pours cloudy gold with a lacy white head. Aroma of bananas and grain, maybe a hint of corn. Mild flavor with a bit of clove. Balanced finish that makes me want more. Very good hefeweizen.

mannika (140) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 28, 2007
On tap at BeerBistro. Pours a nice cloudy amber-gold. Aroma is full and grainy, almost like fresh corn? Taste is very mild, as is the finish. Overall, a nice, light, summer beer, but nothing special.

2.9
Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 28, 2007
Bottled König Ludwig. 50cl. It pours as hazy yellow beer with a decent rocky white head. Rather sweet, a touch of spiciness, bananas and overripe apples, notes of plums, slightly bland taste, mouldy, a bit sour. Light grassy, toasty, citrussy finish.

3.4
valpoaj (755) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Bottle of Konig Ludwig Weiss. Citrusy and bready aroma rises from a traditional weiss pour. Very drinkable with a light finish, this brew has hints of yeast, lemon and spice. Although I can’t really pull the banana aroma out as many can, I definitely noted the flavor, particularly in the aftertaste. Somewhat unique, this was an enjoyable drink

Viper666 (3290) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2007
Bouteille, courtoisie de Jean-Marc G. . De couleur dorée et légèrement voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (bananes et agrumes), de blé, léger de gomme balloune, d’épices (clou de girofle) et de houblon herbeux (herbe mouillée) aux notes florales ainsi que des notes de pain. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et légèrement croustillant ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aqueuse. Goût de levures fruitées (citron et zest, moyen de bananes) et moyennement épicé (clou de girofle, notes de coriandre) avec des notes de gomme balloune lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût asséchant de blé accompagné d’un goût de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé) aux petites notes florales ainsi qu’un goût de levures. Post-goût moyen aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux, de levures, de blé et fruité (zest de citron, pelures de bananes).

bhensonb (15976) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 20, 2007
As Konig Ludwig Weiss. Aroma of banana, a bit of yeast, and something of pilsener hop. Cloudy gold color with a ferocious white head that does a little lacing. Starts with medium body, banana, more banana, then yeast and some spice. More than clove. The carbonation renders it nearly chewy. Then it thins, and the finish is clovy spice, in a light way, followed by watery banana, and maybe a bit of hop. Very unbitter finish. Very good ale. Real ale by the way.
