*Edited* because I had my first best by bottle. This beer FRESH is phe·nom·e·nal...

It pours out of the bottle a nice cloudy honey color with a large frothy white head that lingers and leaves a nice lacing in the glass. It smells of yeast with overtones of nuts and fruits. It tastes even better and for a hefe it will be one of my favorites while in Germany. It has a nice mouth that goes down smoothly.
A truly wonderful beer.

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...
