Review: Konig Ludwig Weissbier
Prince Luitpold of Bavaria carries on the great tradition which has associated the Royal Bavarian Family with the fine art of brewing since 1260. This classic brew uses select Bavarian barley and wheat malt, the finest Noble Hallertau aroma hops and the original brewer’s yeast strain. König Ludwig Weissbier is a refreshing, well-balanced, flavorful natural weissbier with a lively fruity aroma and fine sense of spiciness. König Ludwig Weissbier was honored with the World Beer Award for the world’s best wheat beer in 2008.
Malty and bready, this is a beer with lots of pastry character — including graham crackers and gingerbread. Slightly fruity — apples, mostly — as you drink, with just a touch of baking spice on the nose. Ultimately there’s not a lot of nuance on the finish, as the mouth-filling body takes over and muscles everything else out of the way. Interesting heft for a weissbier. 5.5% abv.
