Weizenbock

Style Snapshot

A strong, malty, and fruity wheat ale that ranges from light to very dark amber in color, is medium to full-bodied, has a moderate to high alcohol content, and exhibits hints of the fruitiness of the base style.

A bock-strength version of German Weizenbier, it can be darker and more malty as well.

History

Weizen identifies this as a German wheat beer, and bock is the clue to its strength. This style is a Bavarian specialty that was first introduced by the Schneider Brewery in 1907 under the Aventinus name, which continues to this day.
