The aroma and flavor of a weissbier with yeast is decidedly fruity and phenolic. the phenolic characteristics are often described as clove-, nutmeg-like, mildly smoke-like or even vanilla-like. banana-like esters should be present at low to medium-high levels. these beers are made with at least 50 percent malted wheat, and hop rates are quite low. hop flavor and aroma are absent or present at very low levels. weissbier is well attenuated and very highly carbonated and a medium to full bodied beer. the color is very pale to pale amber. because yeast is present, the beer will have yeast flavor and a characteristically fuller mouthfeel and may be appropriately very cloudy. no diacetyl should be perceived.

Why Only Craft Beers?

The number one reason is craft beer tastes better than the "beer water" that is mass produced and mass marketed by the big beer companies. Craft beer tastes better because craft brewers spend their time focusing the quality of their beer rather than focusing on their marketing campaigns and stock prices.

Oh yeah! Craft beers can pack a punch. Most craft beers range from 5-10% ABV, but some can reach 20%, 30%, and even 40% ABV.
