Day 243 Drink: Konig Ludwig Weissbier
König Ludwig Schlossbrauerei Kaltenberg is in Bavaria, just to the west of Munich. The brewery is located at Kaltenberg Castle, residence of His Royal Highness Prince Luitpold of Bavaria, the great grandson of the last King of Bavaria, Ludwig II.
Konig Ludwig Weissbier pours a bright golden color with a slight haze and a thick head of foam. The beer has subtle banana and clove notes in a light refreshing package. This beer is on the light to medium side of most hefeweizens you might find, which means the fruit and bubblegum aspects are not overpowering. There is a bit of citrus in the long finish of this brew that is attractive on a warm summer evening.
