Bought from City Super grocery store in Hong Kong. This beer has a great appearance which is perfectly cloudy and it has the color of honey. Poured with a large head that dissipated fairly quickly. No lacing on my glass which is beer clean.
Not a lot of banana or bubblegum on the nose for sure but I get some clove and a bit of a tart smell. The Konig Ludwig Weissbier Hell tastes a bit subdued right off the bat. Mouth feel is superb for sure and I definitely taste the tartness from the nose. Flavor wise, not a lot going on at first but the aftertaste is killer. Very fruity and sweet on the finish and it lingers. Tastes of fruit for sure and I get a bit of banana here as well. I agree with the first reviewer, it definitely has a tiny bit of a pilsener taste in there as well. Probably the same type of hops which there aren't much of in this beer.
Wow, longest review I've written but overall, a good hefe. I would definitely drink this sucker again. Not as complex as the big boys, or as flavorful, but a really great example of the style.

3.71/5 rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a weizen glass.
A: yellow, a little bit cloudy, massive head (had to stop mid pour to let it settle before I could finish pouring, and it wasn't at all an aggressive pour), lots of visible carbonation.
S: yeast and pear
T: Mild and sweet, almost like drinking apple juice with a gentle kick. I don't really taste bananas and cloves like I'd expect, but I do taste bubblegum.
F: crisp, slightly chalky.
