Minutely hazy copper color. Aromas and flavors of toasted fruit bread, spiced nuts, and molasses cookie with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a medium-length finish manifesting notes of citrus salad, buttery praline, and pepper finish. A nice and lively weizenbock that will sing at the table.

Weizen Bock

Beer Glass Hefeweizen Dark.jpg
Serve in a Weissbier Glass
Weizen bocks are pale gold to dark brown in color and range in alcohol from 6.5-8.5%. These beers combine the character of hefeweizens and dopplebocks and are rich and malty with estery, yeasty qualities. These brews also show a note of wheaty crispness through the finish. Weizen bocks are essentially winter wheat beers, originally brewed in Bavaria. Noteworthy example of this style include: Schneider Aventinus, Hacker-Pschorr Weisse Bock and Urban Chestnut Maximilian.
