A mid-par hefe. Aroma of banana and yeast. Pour was a disappointing flat cloudy orange with no head whatsoever. Nice bitey yeast/wheat flavor. A little citrus floating around in the aftertaste along with some bitterness in the end. Medium to high carbonation with no aftertaste. Kind of a thicker mouthfeel that I would have expected. afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2007
On Tap. Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a small but lasting white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of yeast, wheat, citrus, banana, and light cloves. Taste is the same as aroma and slightly spicy. Medium creamy mouthfeel with a mild bitterness. Good for a hot Summer day. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle. (as König Ludwig Weissbier Hell) Unclear, orange weizen with a too small, white head. Banana, hops and some cloves in the aroma. A bit sugary flavor, with banana, citrus-notes and spicyness. Mellow, but a bit gassy mouthfeel. Spiced, lightly banana-ish finish. Not a bad hefe, but it could use a bit more pronounced flavor. (070527) MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Poured from a 330ml bottle, under the alias "Konig Ludwig Weiss", into a shaker. This hefe poured a hazy golden color with a head of small, fizzy white bubbles. The head settled down to a thin layer that remained throughout. The aroma was typical of a hefe. It included bready yeast, clove, and some faint citrus notes. The flavor was clove, yeast esters, some light spices, and faint citrus. Very crisp and refreshing. The mouthfeel was light to medium-bodied with very noticable, lively carbonation. This was a very well done hefeweizen. unibaren (157) - 8000 Århus C, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
Yeasty, banana and spices dominate the aroma. Colour is cloudy orange and head although not big is longlasting. Beer is very light in the taste with the most notable being some sourness. Aftertaste has not bitterness at all only a dry spicyness. A very drinkable weissbier.

[328-20070602] Tap @ Smokeless Joe’s (Toronto, ON, called Konig Ludwig Weiss). Smells lightly of feet, cloves, banana, birthday cake icing and... bruschetta. Hazy, orange yellow body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Flavour continues banana and wheaty cloves along with some fresh nail polish remover (acetone). Medium body. Not bad, nice blending with a fairly complex texture and flavour, apparently. paleface1982 (13) - cabot, Arkansas, USA - JUN 27, 2007

Perfect on a hot steamy day. On draft at Max’s. Bananas and clove and just far to easy to drink! jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2007
From a 11.2 oz. slender bottle, a freshness date on the back label, sampled at cellar temperature in a weizen glass. I swirled the last third in the bottle before finishing the pour.
Poured a cloudy orangey dull golden with a foamy, creamy white head, decent retention, settled into a thin sudsy lacing.
Aromas of lemon, clove, lightly spicy, yeast and wheat malty.
Good carbonation and malty crisp, dry, creamy smooth medium bodied mouthfeel.
Tastes of sweet, juicy wheaty malts, a little banana bubble gum and clove spiciness, earthy yeast, a sour lemony bitterness, a slight taste of alcohol at the end, and a dry yeasty, malty finish.
A really nice hefeweizen, easy and smooth to drink, can always be found in the singles/mix-a-six racks at a couple of liquor stores in my area, well worth trying if like the hefeweizen style.
