About Weizen Bock

About Weizen Bock
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.
