This is a great glass for wheat ales designed to maintain a healthy head, and concentrate aromas.
Nothing beats serving your Weizenbier (wheat beer) in an authentic Bavarian Weizen Glass. These classy glasses, with their thin walls and length, showcase the beer's color and allows for much headspace to contain the fluffy, sexy heads association with the style. Most are 0.5L in size, with slight variations in sizes. Forget the lemon garnish, the citric will kill the head.
Benefits: Specifically produced to take on volume and head, while locking in the banana-like and phenol aromas associated with the style.
Use with these Beer Styles:
- American Dark Wheat Ale
- American Pale Wheat Ale
Never chill your glassware, and decline if served a frosted glass. Why? As the beer hits the frosted glass condensation will occur and dilute your beer, while at the same time alter the serving temperature.
Hand washing glasses is recommended as some dishwashers will leave residues on the glass. If you have a new dishwasher with a sanitation cycle, using that with no soap is a great option as well. Allow your glasses to air dry whenever possible. It is not recommended to hand dry because towels can leave lint which will affect head retention.
