4.5/5  rDev +17.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Why this doesn't rank higher confounds me. Added to an evening line-up of Weihenstepahaner, Ayinger, Kellerweisss...it holds its own if not betters some of the others. Ayinger hef is king for me but Konig and Kellerweiss rival it on all fronts. Summertime...and the livin's easy as long as these 4 hefs are at arm's length. Less of the bubblegum taste that the world's #1 ranked hef has IMNSHO. Franziskaner is no slouch, and Paulaner is just as good....but Konig is just plain delicious.

3.48/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A. Hazy bright yellow. Inch of white head.

S. Banana. Sugar. Malt. A nutty fragrance, maybe almond or hazelnut.

T. Banana and clove. Light pepper.

M Very light. Crisp. Tangy.

O. It's OK. I wouldn't put it up as one the best of the style. The clove is too powerful.

Serving type: on-tap

3.78/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

11.2oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Look: Hazed muddle yellow, beautiful bubbly lace

Smell: Fresh bread, faint banana peel, mild spice, nutty yeast, dragonfruit, doughy

Taste: Smooth, crisp bite, clean graininess, mild banana pith, vague spice, yeast, chalky, dried grass, modest hopping, finishes dry

Very good, a bit too clean for my liking ... expected a bit more of the banana and clove but without those two pushing harder it is still a very drinkable brew.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Yellow with a slight brown tinge, cloudy, 2 fingers of off white head, a little fine bubbled carbonation.

S: Bananas, cloves, yeast, spice.

T: Bananas, cloves, spice, almost a belgian style yeast. A little sour note.

M: Medium, bready body, with little to medium fine carbonation.

O: OK. Typical of this style, sort of cool German bottle. Would match salads and lemony light summer foods.
