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°

JFGrind (2071) - 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.

Bottle. Golden color with thick head. Aroma has wheat malt, yeast, citrus. Taste is malty with somewhat sweet aftertaste. Flavors of fruits, yeast, wheat malt, banana. Not too sweet and well balanced tasty one.

Had it in Bobwundayes in Taipei near Luizangli MRT. Cracking effort. Nose is banana and yeast. Nice golden cloudy colouring. Lasting head. Decent carbonation. Nose is wonderful, yeast and banana. Taste is mainly banana and yeast. Some cloves and a hint of orange. Feels like a winter beer to me. Great wheat beer.

Franckg (1856) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2017
Bouteille. Robe dorée claire avec un mince col de mousse. Arômes de banane, noix grillées, malt de blé un peu âcre, muscade, poire. En bouche, malt au goût bizarroïde mélangeant beurre, sirop au banane et fromage. Sinon, brèves saveurs de poire, banane et un peu de caramel. Finale presque inexistante, texture huileuse qui devient aqueuse, corps mince. J'ai vu mieux comme weißbier.

A very good Hefeweizen from LCBO Summer 2017 Beer Program. Nice fruity taste, lucky to get the chance to try such good beers from around the world.

Jabic (702) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 14, 2017
Ar: Peach skin and unripe banana; lots of black pepper, a bit of clove. Ap: Golden and hazy; medium off-white head with moderate-poor retention, settling into a splotch of foam with a chunky trailing ring on the glass sides, almost melting in appearance. T: Round banana and peach skins; light doughy malt character, soft; a bit of black pepper and clove; low sweetness; just a hair of bitterness, with no accompanying hop flavor; raw dough on the finish. P: Light body with high, but very soft, carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: A lighter in flavor, but still firmly in-style German hefeweizen; malt character is surprisingly soft and has a great note of raw bread; lush despite its lightness.

Неплохая пшеничка среднего класса. Очень по вкусу напоминает Балтику 8. Пышная пена привычная для пшенички которая безумно быстро исчезает. Запах и вкус банана. При послевкусии кажется чересчур сильный привкус дрожжей, который портит общее впечатление.

3.7
motorhate (23) - Kent / London, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
Standard German weissbier which pours a slightly lighter colour than most weiss. Lots of carbonation and a large off white head which soon dissipates. Usual banana, clove and bubblegum flavours with a slightly lemon / citrus overtones. Long aftertaste and smooth on the palate. Recommended.

Bacchus66 (937) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 30, 2017
355ml bottle from Total Wine. Hazy gold with a full off-white head. Yeast, citrus, banana, vanilla, bread, cloves, grass. Medium carbonation. Peppery, lemony finish. Very refreshing.

3.2
Sven1973 (549) - GERMANY - SEP 24, 2017
Flasche im Hackendahl's in Berlin-Mitte. Trübes Gelb, kleinporiger Schaum. Aroma: Banane, etwas Hopfen, Zitrone. Geschmack: Säuerlich, etwas Banane, Hauch von Milchsäure.

Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
My favorite Hefeweizen from the bottle. König Ludwig = Prinzregent Luitpold. Has all the features a Hefeweizen should have: Opaque yellow-golden, big, lasting head, flavors of grain, yeast and a tender note of banana. Perfection!
