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.

A clean and enjoyable beer to share with friends, women love it, no after taste with just a hint of banana flavor, the little bubbles fizzle in your mouth making you want to ask for more, very delightful beer that will catch you off guard if you let it...

smooth, creamy head, not hoppy at all. lightly lemony with hint of banana esther, but no discernible spiceyness.
no strange overtones or funkiness, just clean flavor in the biscuity sense; not overly carbonated.
different from your average lager. Not bitter at all, and not sweet, either. Very refreshing.
Like the first level of a Belgian tripel, but drinkable as a session beer... this isn't Hell, it's heaven!
