German-Style Weizenbock Beer
German-Style Weizenbock is a type of German wheat beer that is dark in color and has a strong flavor. This beer is made with a higher percentage of wheat than other German wheat beers, and it is also brewed with a higher alcohol content. Weizenbocks are typically sweeter than other German wheat beers, and they often have flavors of chocolate, caramel, and nuts.
This beer style was first brewed in the early 1900s and has since become a popular wintertime beer in Germany. German-Style Weizenbocks are typically served in a tall glass and often garnished with a lemon or orange slice.
