Weizenbier is an outsider (or “Pimock”) in Cologne, as any Bavarian would be. But there is a Rhineland slant to this wheat beer-a Kölsch yeast replaces the traditional weizen one, and an unusually heavy dose of hops is added, resulting in a drier Weisse, with none of the typical banana and clove notes typical of a Bavarian wheat beer.

KyotoLefty (6185) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2013
Draught at Braustelle. Bighy, dark orange, glowing, cloudy, with a fine, low head. Nose of bread, wheat, oranges, grass. Flavor of wheat malt, citrus hops, bread, oranges. A hybrid of a weizen and an American wheat. Interesting and good. Very malty and rich but clean. Weizen body and malt, but are they using US hops and yeast? No banana or clove.
