2006 Brewers Association Style Guidelines

Major Style:Ale
Sub-Style Name:South German-Style Weizenbock/Weissbock

This style can be either pale or dark (golden to dark brown in color) and has a high starting gravity and alcohol content. The malty sweetness of a Weizenbock is balanced with a clovelike phenolic and fruity-estery banana element to produce a wellrounded aroma and flavor.

As is true with all German wheat beers, hop bitterness is low and carbonation is high. Hop flavor and aroma are absent. It has a medium to full body. If dark, a mild roast malt character should emerge in flavor and to a lesser degree in the aroma. If this is served with yeast the beer may be appropriately very cloudy. No diacetyl should be perceived.

(Brewer may indicate a desire that the yeast be either poured or not poured when the beer is served)

Alcohol By Weight (by Volume):5.5-7.5% (6.9-9.3%)
Colour:5-30 (10-60 EBC)
Original Gravity:1.066-1.080 (16-19.5 šPlato)
Final Gravity:1.0016-1.028 (4-7 šPlato)
