JFGrind (2043) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2013
I had a bottle of Konig Ludwig Weissbier. Bright yellow, light bodied, with a foamy head soft aroma. A blend of lemony sweetness with a touch a bitterness. Quaffable Hefe, that comes in heavier on the alcohol than expected.

Cloudy yellow pour with white head. Dark malted flavor with notes of banana and lemon. Floral spices and malt finish.

It pours murky gold; the head is off-white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: sour bread, cracked wheat, toasted wheat, toast, cereal, and cracker. The taste is light sour that finishes medium dry. The palate is medium-light bodied with medium carbonation; the finish is short. Overall, tasty summer brew, but not very interesting or memorable.

victorsampson96 (91) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2017
(500 ml bottle) Pours a cloudy, dark-golden beer, with vigorous medium carbonation, and a large rocky white head. Pleasant aroma of banana, vanilla, fresh malt, biscuit, caramel, and mineral water. The beer tastes fairly sweet, with some bitter earthiness on the finish, and a touch of tart kiwifruit. Overall, this is a simple Hefeweizen, with an effervescent medium mouthfeel. Although pleasant, it’s possibly a little lacking in flavour and body. Still balanced and refreshing.

Pale orange yellow, medium head. White bread, cereal, yeast. Taste is sweet, yeasty and grainy. Soft carbonated. A bit watery texture. Boring.

Bottled as konig Ludwig. Cloudy straw color with thin head. Fairly sweet and malty aroma for a weissbier. Also aroma of hay. Taste is kind of sugary. Overripe bananas and wheat. Just ok.

Inoven (703) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2017
Fles gedeeld met Benzai, TomHendriksen en Roelzie. Helder goudgeel bier, stevig schuimend tijdens inschenken. Aroma is fruitig. Smaakt als pils. Nasmaak is iets bitter.

On draft in Paris. Pours a cloudy gold with an off white head. Flavors of biscuit and lemon. Pretty boring stuff.

3.3
kraddel (7870) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2017
Tap at the hoppy pub stand at a food event in Thessalonniki / 30th of April 2017. Pours unclear, cloudy yellow. Small white head. Smell is banana esthers, mildly sweet. Taste is full, sweet, very mild bitter touch. Some banana, less than others in the style i’ve had. Low carbo. Decent MF . OK .

3.3
bdleedahl (435) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 31, 2017
Better than any north american wheat for sure. But below average for the Germans. Definitely worth drinking for a wheat in Canada.
