Old-fashioned wheat beer was often dark. In the 1950s and 1960s, wheat beers did not have a youthful image, since most older people drank them for their health-giving qualities.
Sole with lemon beurre blanc, lemon chicken, hearty sausages, veal dishes, broiled game hen, game pie, venison, boar, corned beef sandwiches. Serve in tall vase-shaped weisse glass; a thin slice of lemon as garnish is a personal choice. The yeast is healthful and delicious. Serve in the classic Ayinger 17-ounce “weizen swirl” glass, or an oversized wine glass.
