Glass Type: Weizen Glass
 
Glassware Information  
A wheat beer glass is a glass that is used to serve wheat beer, known also as weizenbier or hefeweizen. It is much taller than a pint glass, and is considerably wider at the top than at the base, with a slight hourglass taper toward the bottom. This design purportedly allows greater production of foam, as well as increased exposure to air when the glass is tilted back. Varies in size from holding 0.25cl to 0.5l.

This glass is appropriate with the following beer styles
