COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

500ml brown bottle. Labeled as Konig Ludwig Weissbier. Pale lemon yellow colour, hazy. Head is huge, white in colour, creamy, thick and long lasting. Light aroma of banana and lemon. Flavour is wheaty, with a strong banana note, some cloves, lemony and yeasty finish. Body is a bit light and thin.

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.

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.

HogTownHarry (6611) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Draught. At Smokeless Joe, as "Konig Weiss". Cloudy somewhat pale orange, large and lasting creamy-foamy white head. Pleasant fruity sweet malt aroma, not too much banana, light lemon and dry hops, some sharp peppery yeast that began to dominate as it warmed. The taste is a little bland and watery, definite wheat character, the fruit sweetness fades quickly - won’t make me forget the Denison’s any time soon, but quenching on a hot day on the patio. Surprisingly solid body considering the watery palate, not too sweet, lightly syrupy with a very quick finish - ever so slightly bitter aftertaste from the yeast. Decent.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2006
On tap at Chaucer’s Pub in London, Ontario- Pours classic hazy yellow, with a creamy white foam. Head has excellent life. Aromas are orange creamsicle, banana, yeasty esters,, floral spices. Flavours of spicy cirtus, banana, yeast, cream. Very nice and refreshing fruit/yeast finish. Good.

ganache (5773) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle on an ICE. Head is lacy and foamy white, strong carbonation in a cloudy yellow. Aroma is heavy wheat, some yeast, clove, strong citrus, and even coriander, which is a really surprising tone for Kaltenberg. Taste is strongly wheaty, big carbonation, tingly mouthfeel, little else (kinda bland).

pivnizub (10521) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2006
Bottle: Hazy, almost cloudy, huge off-white head, slowly diminishing, golden coloured; fresh fruity nose (lemons, summer fruit), bananas+cloves+yeast in the wings; fizzy mouthfeel, a bit sticky, sweetish flavour, quite full bodied; short, sweet-fruity, a bit yeasty-bitter finish. A well rounded, decent Bavarian Weizen without too much edges.......

JorisPPattyn (9913) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2006
Stupendously huge, dense yellowish tinted head, not very stable over fully trouble, yellow-greenish beer. Banana-filled nose with a bit of grass or hay. Light spicey touch. Sweet-fruity taste with banana and a whiff of citruspeel. A spicey finish, remindful of nutmeg rather than cloves. Gets more sweet going on, however, becoming more "fade". Wheat/grist slickness, velvety texture. Slightly empty aftertaste. More than decent Weissbier, despite the size of the brewery. Only possible in Germany, I guess. Tasted as König Ludwig Weissbier Hell Thanks, Sebastian

GregClow (3391) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2006
Draught at Czehoski. Hazy yellow-gold with a pillowy white head. Aroma and flavour both hold the expected notes of wheat, clove, yeast, and a bit banana. A simple, refreshing example of the style.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2006
I thought this was a very nice wheat beer. Poured a dark cloudy yellow with a small white head. Citrus flavors and spice make up the taste and the finish was refreshing. A good beer.
