German Wheat Beer covers many aspects of the important styles: Weizen, its most popular variations (Dunkles, Krystal, Weizenbock, etc.), Berliner Weisse, and its cousin from Bremen. Starting with his personal discovery of Hefeweizen, Warner takes us through the history, discusses brewing techniques, and describes the many sensory features which make these styles unique. It is a fascinating story for the person who enjoys wheat beers, as well as a resource for the craft brewer.
Reading this book has heightened my appreciation of wheat beers. I learned that it is not just the amount of phenolics a beer contains, but the type, as well. I had previously associated "phenolic" with a medicine-like taste; Warner showed the way to another type of phenolic, which gives a pleasant clove taste and aroma. Knowing not only what I enjoy about a particular beer, but why, as well, has been a pleasant experience.
Warner starts the book with mention of his apprenticeship at a Weissbier brewery and study at Weihenstephan, and ends with small-batch recipes and a discription of several different brands. The latter tells you where in Germany these brands are brewed, and he encourages you to visit and taste in person. I would like to arrange a side trip to Freising and other Weissbier towns during my next trip to Germany!
My sole (and relatively minor) criticism is directed not so much at this particular book, as it is at the entire series. The non-brewing reader may find some of the information uninteresting, while the brewer is hungry (thirsty?) for more detail. Is the Classic Beer Styles series for homebrewers? Or is it for people who happen to enjoy good beer?

This book was published in 1992, you can get just about anything these days as far as ingredients, and equipment is so much better. With that said, the history and text on Weizen bier is excellent. Take note the line about "never" put a lemon slice or any other fruit in your weiss bier, it would be an insult to the Bavarian brewer, prost to that one Eric ! Of the many times I've been to Germany only in the recent past have the bar tenders been offering a lemon slice due to the demand of tourists. Read this book and learn about a great bier.

Graduate of the renowned German Weihenstephaner school of brewing, founder of Colorado’s Tabernash Brewing, brewmaster at two others and beer author, Eric Warner writes an essential book on German wheat beers. He covers the essentials without a lot of fluff. A brief history of the style introduces a sensory profile of the different types of German Wheat beer and then a discussion of their physical and chemical composition. Warner learned his craft from the masters of German wheat beer brewing and this especially shows in his discussion of how to brew a Weissbeer. He also briefly discusses how to drink Weissbeer and recommends food pairings. For the homebrewer he provides recipes. The book was written in 1992 and some of the information is out of date but enough of the book is still relevant to appeal to the hard core beer enthusiast and the home brewer.

This book cover every part of the weizenbiers from Germany. The history from its begining to the actual globalization of weizenbiers, Werner put all the knowledge as he was telling stories from his personal life, and at most of the time, it is true! With various recipes and information about the resources used in wheat beers of any style, this guide is definitely an ultimate. Could be better, but, by the year of its release I think it's perfectly understood. For the fans, a "must-have"!

I have been brewing now for about 4 years and been trying to tackle taste differences ever since in my favorite Weizen brew. This book gives both insight in the history of weizen beers as well as brewing guides to accomplish the goal of correctly brewing this beer type. It is a great book and i will keep in on the shelf for reading once again.

As with all the books I have read in the Classic Beer Styles series, Warner's book on German Wheat Beer is excellent. Warner interestingly details the characteristics and classic processes used in brewing German Wheat Beer, and includes recipes for the various styles of Wheat Beer. A must read for anyone serious about brewing this style.

I am huge fan of beer. I love import beer, micro brew and my home brew. Wheat beers are some of my favorite beers. I think a nice wheat beer on a hot summer day is one of the best things ever. That or a Dunkel Weiss in the cool of the winter. This book talks about wheat beers, the origins and the styles. I found it to be a great read as I love wheat beer. Also, this book includes traditional wheat recipes and as a home brewer, that was a big plus for me. If you are a fan of beer, a beer snob, a craft beer lover, then give it a try. Also, if you are a home brewer looking to try your hand at a traditional German wheat beer, this will help guide you.
