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.

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.
