troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow with a decent white head. Yeasty and a little bit fruity as well. Some grassy notes as well. I like hefeweizens, but this one wasn’t very good.

henrikb (1262) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2006
Draught – Hazy golden body, white head; Huge and a little vulgar nose with lots of banana, yoghurt and juice from ripe grapefruit; A little soft, a little bitter body, only little carbonation; Quite long, very aromatic finish (same aromas as nose).

Oakes (16088) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2006
Hazy dull beige colour. Not much head by weizen standards. Aroma of sweat, banana, nutmeg, sour pears. Sweet & sour flavour with apple/pear notes dominating, banana sublimated and the malts come across more like icing sugar than anything else. Lifeless example marred by a misguided sense of balance, accenting all the wrong things.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 König Ludwig Weiss - Originally sampled from draught but unrated until this bottle from Uto. Straw coloured with a light cream head. Aroma of yeast and banana with a taste to match. Crisp with a light start and rich finish. A firm favorite, well suited to the bannofie pie for dessert.

larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2009 Medium shiny lasting white head. Cloudy yellow body with light carbonation. Thin wheaty fruity aroma with spicy banana yoghurt notes. Sweet-acidic chalky fruity wheaty taste with spicy yoghurt notes. Fullish body. Quite delicate. Chalky, smooth mouthfeel. Dry-acidic chalky herbal grassy aftertaste. Nice, very drinkable. (0.5l bottle, Oslo-Kiel ferry. Rated twice.)

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Bottle 49F Weizen Glass. Good lemon citrus aroma with a nice balance of yeast, and a touch of pepper. No noticible hops are present as would be expected. A cloudy golden color, with a nice lasting white head. but only minimal lacing. Taste is slightly bitter at the finish, a bit of fruit at the begining. Quite light almost watery. Makes for easy drinking. Fairly light palate, but pretty strong carbonation, Not too bad. Not a bad beer, there are definately better hefes out there, still haven’t found a match for weihenstephaner. But easy drinking.

Ron (3740) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2006
One bottle of König Ludwig Weiss from BOTW. Poured a large head. Usual citrus aroma with wheat, hops and yeast. Fullbodied wheat flavor. Decent beer.
